Customer questions

What if my timings change after I've booked you?

I always try to be as flexible as possible however I would need to know in advance for any major timing changes.

Can you provide an iPod/DJ service before and between your sets?

Absolutely! I can provide DJ services during and after my sets.

How much time do you need to set up?

I usually set up around 60 minutes before the performance time.

Can I pick the pieces you play from the set list?

I will always do my best to accommodate any requests and I will keep you up to date with how i'm getting on with them.

Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?

Yes, I have everything I need to perform with.

Can you learn specific pieces before the event?

I will always do my best to accommodate any requests and I will keep you up to date with how i'm getting on with them.

What do your clients love most about your performances?

I always try to interact with the crowd and rather than play a set list I prefer to play what i feel suits the audience at that time to get people dancing and singing along etc.

Which venues have you performed at in the past?

I have played hundreds of venues in the UK. I do play abroad too for example I recently played for the armed forces in Brunei, South East Asia

Which artists have you been most influenced by?

I love everything from the 50s to present day which is why my sets cover a bit of every genre.

Been to see Simon a couple of times, once at one of my locals. He is amazing on the guitar and just as good at singing. Would highly recommend him for anyone looking to book a musician for a venue or event.
