FAQ

Do you take requests?

I am happy to perform one special request for you. You can also let us know your top 10 preferences from the repertoire - so you can be sure to hear all your favourites on the day.

How long do you take to set-up?
30 minutes.

What time do you play?
At a time to suit your event, standard prices are for 2 hours of live music, to be performed as required over a 4 hour period.

What is your guide price based on?
My guide price is based on me performing at a venue within 30 miles of my base in London. I charge travel costs for venues further than 30 miles, and if your venue is more than a 2 hours 30 mins drive home, I charge a bit extra so I can book accommodation.

Do you have your own equipment?
Yes – I travel self-contained with amplification.

Our venue has a noise limiter, can you work with that?
Yes, my sound works fine with noise limiters.

Do you have Public Liability Insurance and PAT tested equipment?
Yes.

How much space do you require?
I have played in some very small spaces, but ideally a minimum of around 1.5m x 3m.

How much power do you require?
1 x 13-amp sockets is fine for our system.

Do I need to provide food/drinks?
Soft drinks are always much appreciated & for longer days a meal would be great but this is not essential.

Can we see you play live before booking?
As a professional function musician, my bookings tend to be weddings and private events that unfortunately I am unable to invite guests to. My audio is a very accurate insight into my sound, and we'd also encourage you to check out my testimonials page to see what previous clients have said about their experience.
