Can you play a First Dance song or special request?
Of course! I will be happy to learn up to 5 new songs for you to perform for your ceremony / first dance. I will usually need at least a few weeks' notice to learn and prepare them so the sooner you can let me know the better!
 
Can I choose the set list?
You're welcome to have a look through my set list and pick out your favourites for me to play, but it's best to let me know a few weeks in advance at least so that I can refresh my memory of them all. I typically have around 50 songs that are frequently in my set lists and another couple of hundred songs that I perform occasionally - so I might not be able to bust out a song on demand just because it's on my setlist. So in short, yes you can, just give me a few weeks to practice them and make sure that they're sounding amazing for you. Equally, if you'd rather not worry about it I can use my judgement and experience to put together a set that will be perfectly suited to the vibe of your event.

What about DJ requests?
I am happy to take DJ requests, I have a pretty big library of music from the 1940s through to current chart music, so the chances are I'll have most things that get requested already on my system. Because I mix tracks live though, I do have to have songs in my catalogue in advance, I can't just stream them. So, if there are particular songs that you or your guests would love to hear, particularly if you have any special songs that are a little bit obscure, please let me know well in advance so that I can buy them and have them ready for you.

Can you perform outside?
Yes, and I often do! Things to bear in mind... Firstly, I'll still need access to a power socket, unless it's small gathering of 100 people or less where I can perform using a battery amp. Secondly, the venue needs to have a licence for live music outside. And finally, it's best to have some kind of gazebo/shelter to hand in case the weather turns. My equipment cannot be outside in the rain, damp or hot sun.

How long do you need to set up?
It depends which package you've booked. If it's an acoustic set with a basic DJ service, then I like to allow an hour to load in, set up, soundcheck. That gives me a little breathing room if any surprises pop up. For the full DJ Party set up it's best to allow 90mins, more if I need to set up multiple systems in different places (such as outside for the champagne reception and inside for the evening do.)
 
Do you bring all your own equipment?
Yes, all sound equipment and for DJ Party sets lighting equipment too. The only thing I don't provide is a stage. I generally don't need one. However, if the ground is unstable you may need to provide one. 
 
What kind of power outlets do you require?
I just need a socket that I can access fairly close to wherever I'm set up. I run a pretty substantial sound and lighting rig for my DJ/party sets. So to ensure that the power doesn't trip, please make sure that I'm not on the same circuit as other high power equipment such as bouncy castles, bucking broncos etc.
