What can we say, you blew us away, together with all our guests. We can’t thank you enough, you sang our songs with such meaning, you brought life to them. You helped make our day more special and for that we thank you.

"Just a quick note to saythank you for the superb show that you put on for our wedding on Sunday 27th June, we thought you were absolutely superb! Every guest that we have spoekn to since has commented on how good you were. Aplogies for my Patrick Swayze routine at the end, with music that good I couldn’t resist!
All the best and we hope to hear you play again in the future."
What kind of events do you usually serve?
Weddings, birthdays, anniversaries, christenings, hate to bring it up but I have sung at funerals too!
How long do you play for?
That deepends on the booking. An evening party would normally be in the region of 8pm-12am but I am very flexible and will work around your requirements. The most I would normally sing for is 3 sets of 45 minutes.
Do you have your own PA and lighting?
Do you have Public Liability Insurance and PAT tested equipment?
Yes to both
How much space do you require?
My favourite tune is not on your list. Will you be able to play it?
Probably, if it's an unusual request I just need a bit of notice to work it out. If the key of the song is unsuitable, which is rarely the case, I can play it live on guitar.
How many breaks do you take? How long are they?
This depends on how long you'd like me for. For an hour long drinks reception, I wouldn't take break. For the evening party I would take two breaks between my 3 sets. But technically, I don't take a break, as I become the DJ in the slots between my live sets.
What style of music do you offer?
60's to modern, emphasis on filling the dancefloor.
Is it possible to request something that's not in the repertoire?
Yes, in advance or in the moment.
Do you do open-air acts?
Yes it's happened before.
