I suggest we get together once or twice to discuss likes and dislikes and to talk about a music direction.
The atmosphere is enhanced with subtle lighting if required.
I provide a state of the art sound system, that imparts a pulse and soulful sound to the audience.
Venue Liaison
I like to liase with the venue before the event to discuss access, set up times and sound requirments to ensure your event runs smoothly.
I play and encourage the audience to join in on a percussion kit comprising of bongos, timbales, cowbell, maracas and tambourines. This makes for great interactivity in the room.
Preparation & Experience
After putting your tunes together the event will really come to life. What to play, what to leave out. Timing and feel are important.
I have a vast range of music. From the fifties to the present day. Remember how varied the demographic and age can be at a wedding. It’s great to tap into the energy of all groups. I have some unique ideas on individual songs and I don’t go for a clichéd list of tunes.
*Songlists can be emailed to you if you would like to be presented with a few ideas.
Music Direction
Music can make or break a night. What you play is so important and when you play it is critical. I have an extensive range of music from all the eras.

For drinks and dinner I play an eclectic selection of latin, soul, funk and jazz.
Cruisy and breezy background music is a way of getting people in the mood for the dance set.
