Pricing will be tailored to the specific requirements of each event. As a guide I've listed my base rates under the 'Prices' tab.
Can I provisionally book you?
To secure a date I ask for a 25% deposit. If you are unsure about the date of your event, you can provisionally book me on a first refusal basis. Deposits are non-refundable in most instances. Please contact me and we can discuss options.
Where will you travel?
I am based in Colchester, Essex and available for functions nationally & internationally, subject to travel fees.
How much space do you need?
Around 2m x 2m if possible and access to two 13 amp wall sockets for my equipment.
What time do you arrive? What is your usual set up / pack down times?
My standard package is based on me arriving an hour before the start of performance. Set up and pack down is usually 30 minutes. If you would like me to arrive earlier, please let me know when enquiring.
Do you offer interval/background music?
I offer complimentary setup/interval music for all packages for before, during and after live set breaks. Alternatively I am happy to run your own MP3 / iPod through my PA system.
Can we use your PA system for speeches?
Absolutely! If you require the system to be set up early I will charge an early set up fee.
What will you wear?
I wear smart attire - shirts, ties, waistcoats, trousers and shoes. Please let us know if the event requires something in particular.
What is your standard start and finish times? How long are your live sets?
I usually perform sets of 3x45 minutes or 2x60 minutes to suit your requirements. I am flexible and happy to work around the timings you would like. I won't leave guests without entertainment if things overrun! Live performance must finish at midnight latest (unless previously arranged and conforms with venue licensing).
Can I pick the set list?
I would love to get your input into the set list!
Will you learn our special song?
I am happy to learn a complimentary song of your choice for your event. Any further requests are a standard £10 per song.
What equipment will you use?
I will assess the venue upon arrival. This will be based on the number of guests and size of the room/area I will be performing in. Where suitable I provide stage and/or dance floor lighting. All my lighting is industry standard LED.

I have PLI of £10 million and all my equipment is PAT tested annually.
