Where are you based?
I am based in Tyne and Wear. I generally work around that area when I am in the U.K. However, my corporate and wedding work has taken me all over the U.K. and abroad, I did one wedding at The Ritz Carlton Hotel, South Beach, Miami so I am happy to travel.
What equipment do you use?
I use a full size Yamaha P140 electric piano for piano only gigs. If I require a keyboard I add a Yamaha PSR530. Powered speakers are 15" JBLs, Shure mics and lighting if it's required.
Will you do requests?
Yes. Throughout my performances I am happy to include requests. I will also accompany any singers but only on a very limited scale, normally a bride, groom or someone close.
Do you do any tributes?
I sing about 50 Elton John songs so that can be adapted to a tribute. I also do a Pianomen Tribute.
Over 1,200 songs all played no backing tracks used - EVER! Only live music!
