Optional Extras

What I'll Do At Your Event

Arrival, Set Up & Soundcheck

Upon arrival I'll liaise with the venue/event manager and load in, set up and sound check as quickly and as discretely as possible. This takes approximately 45 minutes, a few minutes of which are for 'sound check' which involves me playing live, full volume, in order to balance the sound and get the best possible live sound in your specific venue.  I am happy to arrive and set up before your guests but I charge an early arrival fee per hour before 5pm if you've booked my standard service.

 

After Set Up

After I've set up and sound checked I will put background music on through my PA system (if required) and go to change into my stage clothes. You will need to arrange for the venue to provide me with a secure changing room, and your catering to provide me with soft drinks/tea/coffee.  This is standard for all wedding/corporate/party bookings for any entertainer.

 

First Set

After my first live set, I'll take a break (usually around 30/45 minutes) and for weddings, this is the ideal time to serve the buffet. During this time I'll leave a play list of carefully chosen music running in the background through my PA system.  If you choose the DJ upgrade option I will run the DJ rig and be on hand to take requests and make announcements.

Second Set and End Of The Night

After the second live set, if we have finished before midnight, we will provide background music until midnight (unless you've selected a later finish upgrade). Only after our official contracted finish time will we pack our equipment down. We will do this as quickly and discretely as possible - which usually takes around 45 minutes.
