What Equipment do you use?
I have two FBT Vertus 1000 systems, they are high powered quality compact units. Depending on venue I use either one of the units or both. They are pretty compact so one unit is ideal for a small venue. I use two for bigger venues and larger events or outdoors. I have an array of conventional microphones to use, as well as a beautiful Shure Super 55 vintage microphone for my Vintage Jazz Act. I play my tracks into the PA through my Macbook Pro, I also use a Allen and Heath Mixer.
Do you have PLI?
I am fully covered by PLI by my membership to Equity. I am happy to provide a copy of my insurance certificate when asked.
How long do you need to set up?
I like to be punctual and have plenty of time. I usually arrive an hour before my peformance is to begin. However if needed I can easily put up my equipment in 15/20 minutes.
What do you wear when you perform?
If you’ve booked my vintage or jazz act I will usually be wearing clothes suited to the era/style. I have a massive array of outfits ranging from the 1920s-1950s. I am a bit of a sucker for vintage fashion.
If you have booked my pop/rock act I will usually be in smart clothes that suit the style I’m going to perform.
If theres’ a particuler outfit you’ve seen on here you’d like then please tell me upon booking.
How long do you sing for?
It entirely depends on the booking and the client. Normally people ask for one of these three options:1x hour, 2x45 minute sets or 3x 45 minute sets. I also will do 2x 1hours with a longer break in between. Some people only book for a single song or a couple, especially when it comes to funerals or wedding ceremonies. I’m happy to develop timings according to the client.
Can You Provide Backgroud Music?
Of Course I Can! I am happy to make playlists to suit the style of your event. I’m also happy for you to plug your own music into my PA if you wish to make you own background playlist.This is not a DJ Service, but I’m happy to supply background music.
Can we choose some or all of the songs you sing?
Of Course. I have a repertoire list that is found here. You can select songs from it you particularly like. If you don't see a particular song you like then very often I will be more then happy to learn it for you. This can be discussed upon booking. Sometimes if it’s a lot of extra songs to learn a small charge will be added for learning time.
How far are you willing to travel?
This is a tough questions as it depends on the pricing. Anywhere further than 50 miles from my home incures an extra cost for travel expenses. I tend to stick to Devon, Dorset, Somerset and Cornwall. The best thing to do is enquire and ask about further travel. Contact Me.
Do you take requests?
The best thing to do is check my repertoire list for the song. The disadvantage of singing with tracks is I may not always have the songs with me on the night for requests. If you have specefic songs you want for your event let me know and I will happily learn them for you. I can’t always do requests on the spot at the event, so pre planning is a must. Here is my repertoire list.
How can we find out about upcoming performances?
I have a gig guide page on Lemonrock where I list public gigs. I also post about my gigs on my Facebook Page, pop over there and have a look. While you there a like would be greatly appreciated.
How many breaks do you take? How long are they?
Breaks depend on what timings you have booked. I will take a 15- 20 minute break between two 45 minute sets. I can take longer breaks if you want an interval of sorts for food or anything.
