ABOUT ME

I'm a vocalist, guitarist, harmonica player & loop-pedal artist, offering a client-tailored service with a personal touch.

I love keeping things upbeat, encouraging the crowd to sing & dance along. I'd normally prepare your favourite songs for you.

See my profile for a variety of videos, alongside what clients said about my services. Message me anytime for a prompt response.

Bookings include: Quality sound system, lighting, mics for speeches, bespoke background & disco playlists, PAT tested & PLI Insured.

* Sets: 100% bespoke. I'll play what you ask for.

* Eras: Over 600 songs from 40s to current chart

* Genres: Jazz, blues, funk, soul, Motown, dance,

R&B, pop, rock, folk, rock & roll, country, Ceilidh.

** F&Q's:

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?

1-2hrs.

* 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.

What do your clients love most about your performances?

Clients repeatedly mention the showmanship & crowd engagement, alongside my special attention to detail and warm & friendly approach.

Which venues have you performed at in the past?

Wedding venues, hotels, members clubs, sports clubs, theatres, bars, restaurants, festivals, markets, fairs.

Which artists have you been most influenced by?

Aretha Franklin, James Brown, Jewel, Alanis Morisette, Chaka Khan.

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

Hurlingham Club, Hospital Club, Bloomberg, KPMG, TEZENIS to name a few.

Booked Lilac Sheer for a Birthday Party
5.0   Verified review

Lilac spent a good deal of time on the phone with me understanding my thoughts and requirements and hit the nail on the head - quite rightly pointing out that some of my live song requests don't really translate from synthesized 80s to acoustic - though there were some great interpretations in the set. Lilac performed exceptionally well - even trying out a loop pedal for the first time in anger which went down VERY well indeed with everyone... it's fantastic to see - to actually watch - how a complete song is built up with layers of different music sounds and vocals. Remco was on hand all evening, setting up the kit and controlling the sound outputs, seemingly effortlessly through an iPAD app, which looked more like it should be controlling the starship enterprise than a set of music equipment! Rem was extremely accommodating, setting kit up in line with the space - including placing lights and speakers outside which meant we could really enjoy the good weather while we ate from the BBQ. Lilac performed some absolutely cracking songs interspersed with my own playlist which I'd created on Spotify.... which I simply shared with Remco via a text link - after which my music magically appeared on the professional sound system! Brilliant! A great night was had - with people remarking "where did you find her" and "the music was fab - just made the party". I would love to have an excuse to hear Lilac again and would recommend without hesitation. Thank you for a great performance!

I hired Lilac and Remko for my 30th Birthday party and the performance and work they did was amazing. They were professional and adapted well with the crowd, even changed some of the set list last minute and had no problem in doing that. They really made my birthday special and the lighting made our garden look amazing too! I will be recommending them to people for any event and hope I can find an excuse to hire them again myself soon! Thank you for your hard work.

Booked Lilac Sheer for a Birthday Party
5.0   Verified review

I had a birthday party outside in our garden and it was country themed. I wanted a single person to sing and play the guitar and perform country and western songs. I wanted it to be more personal that a full band. I saw Lilac on line and she seemed perfect. She had provided a play list prior to attending for me to look through and asked if I had any favourite artists or songs. She arrived early to set up with her husband who was in charge of sound and lighting. (An extra bonus that I wasn't expecting). I couldn't of been happier with her performance. She was absolutely fantastic. She really got the party started with the way she spoke to my guests and involved everyone. Before I knew it everyone was dancing and singing along. They joined in with the party vibe and even came with us to watch the fire works. Lilac was amazing and I would highly recommend her for anyone thinking of hosting something similar. All my guests were singing her praises for weeks and weeks after, it definitely made my party.
