What if my timings change after I've booked you?
When you book with me, I keep that date & time in my diary just for you. I understand that timings for any event can vary and always remain as flexible as possible within reason, while communicating with you prior to and throughout the event. Please note: Additional fees may apply for finishing after midnight (in line with Musician Union regulations).
Can you provide an iPod/DJ service before and between your sets?
All my bookings include a bespoke DJ playlist service throughout the event, tailored with all your song requests. Live DJ sets are also available at a special price.
How much time do you need to set up?
* Generally, the earlier I can get in - the better
* Timings vary based on the amount of lighting required
* Setup is normally quiet, besides the last 15-30min of sound check
* When meal & entertainment happen in the same hall, some venues supply a divider screen for the band to setup behind while guests are dining.
Can I pick the songs you play from the set list?
You can select ALL your songs, and even select some songs which aren’t on my list. I love learning new songs, and ensuring your show is fully-tailored and unique to your event.
Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?
Indeed I do. Indeed. Remember, artists can only sound as good as the amplification they’re playing through. That's why I use PAT tested high-end amplification, as well as party, stage & mood lighting (where necessary) with a dedicated engineer, to ensure everything looks & sounds just right all throughout your event.
Can you learn song requests before the event?
Yes. Learning new songs keeps me quick on my feet and keeps my repertoire fresh. This will normally be free of charge.
* In case you have an exceptional request (i.e song in a different language or a large number of songs especially prepared) I may have to charge a bit extra.
