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

I always try my best to be flexible to help ensure your event runs as smoothly as possible. If timings change slightly in the run-up to the event just let me know

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

Absolutely. This is a really popular request and I actually offer this service for free. If you'd like a DJ service via my PA after the final set until the venue closes, I provide this for an additional £100.

How much time do you need to set up?

I usually set up about 1 to 1.5 hours before the performance time. As soon as the PA is set up I can provide a free playlist service to help set the atmosphere and get your guests ready for the live performance!

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

My set lists are crafted from countless performances and learning what works best to ensure guests dance and have an amazing time. However, I'm definitely happy to chat through and make sure we find what works for your event.

Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?

Yes, absolutely!

Can you learn specific pieces before the event?

If a song isn't included in my song list there may still be a chance I already know it. If there is a special song you'd like me to learn I am happy to do this for you.

What can I say? We had so many compliments from our guests about the band. The guys were super accommodating with song requests and even nailed our first dance. The dance floor was always busy and even when Tom was doing the DJ role, some of the band members still played instruments and even danced with us. The accused, thank you one more time! You were fantastic! Highly recommend them for any function! X from a very happy recently married couple.

Tom sang at our celebration party, about 100 people aged from 18-75, everybody thought he was excellent, he even did a fabulous Nessun Dorma. If you want a great singer, brilliant entertainer, and above all a thoroughly professional and top guy, Tom is your person.

Tom has a reputation as an exceptional singer- songwriter, however his talents do not stop there. When I performed in OperaGold's production of 'Dido and Aeneas' with him, he performed the sailer song with a fantastic stage presence and well chosen vocal colours, which would take most opera singers years to master. With his versatility, diligence and sheer musicality, Tom's certainly one to option. Not to mention that he's also such a down to earth and thoughtful guy who knows how to live and have fun - a pleasure to work with.
