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.

What is the most high profile gig you've performed?

I've shared the stage with some big selling bands at festivals etc but the biggest gig to date is performing for the armed forces in Asia.

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.
