How can I book you?
What kind of functions do you play?
Weddings, proposals, pubs, clubs, restaurants, festivals, residencies, other private or corporate functions.....I'm open to just about anything, try me!
How long do you typically play for?
Usually 2x45 minutes or 3x45 minutes - but entirely up to you really. My current repertoire I can fill over 5 hours hours, and will happily consider any length of set.
What are your prices?
Please enquire to agree a price. I will offer very competitive rates based on the nature and timings of the event.
How far are you prepared to travel?
I am based in both Reading and East London but have a car and, though I usually stick to South East England, will happily travel to just about anywhere in the UK, or further afield, for the right booking.
What equipment do you use?
I have a fully equipped Mackie PA system with mixer and microphones if there is not one available at your venue. I play a Taylor 210ce electro-acoustic guitar and a Vintage Les Paul copy as required.
Can I request a song that isn't in your repertoire?
Yes, just let me know beforehand and I'll see what I can do!
