- Do you have your own PA and lighting?I can source a PA if necessary and can provide fairy lights.
- Do you have Public Liability Insurance and PAT tested equipment?No
- How much space do you require?Enough for me and however many of my instruments you'd like me to bring.
- My favourite tune is not on your list. Will you be able to play it?Probably if you give me enough time to learn it :-)
- How many breaks do you take? How long are they?15min break every 45mins generally but this could be changed
- Can you just play without singing?Yes I can "noodle" for hours and I don't need set music to work from.
- Can you do covers?Yes I can learn covers, I know quite a few already :-) My favourites to cover are Bobby McGee (Kris Kristofferson), First Date (by Blink 182), Time of your Life (Greenday), Hurt (Johnny Cash), and There you go (Buddy Holly).
Rose is happy to perform covers and can learn them on request. Trained initially in classical guitar she can also perform some classical works if prefered.
