Customer questions

What do your clients love most about your performances?

The fact that I can play anything they want: most players are limited by the fact that they sing or have a poor technical level. I can play from Beatles to Mozart, from kids' songs to metal, which makes me very versatile.

Which venues have you performed at in the past?

Italy and Ireland.

Which artists have you been most influenced by?

Henry Gregson-Williams, Mozart, Rory Gallagher, Led Zeppelin, Queen, Dream Theater and Japanese anime openings.

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

That's a thing I prefer to discuss face to face, it's a long story.

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

I usually keep a good amount of free time around an event. If you have any problem let me know and I am sure we can find an solution.

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

Yes. Again, it is your event and you decide what to play.

How much time do you need to set up?

It depends from the songs and for how long I need to play. If I have to make a whole new setlist for 2 hours, that would be the longer, but technically it depends from the songs. To talk about it is the best way to find out.

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

The setlist is just an example. And of course you can pick from it.

Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?

No, I need an amplification system in place.

Can you learn specific pieces before the event?

Sure. Keep in mind that the more a song would be complicated to prepare, the more time I'd need.

We've hired Val for my niece birthday party. He had been very kind to prepare a whole new setlist with her favorite songs and played a whole afternoon non-stop. Professional and a nice person, I recommend him.

It has been one of my wedding's best gifts: together we decided a 4 hours setlist that he has performed during the lunch, a mix of mine and my husband's favorite songs, which ended up being a strange mix, but Val managed to set the playlist and make it sound flawless. I really recommend him for this kind of occasions.
