Since moving to London in 2012 he has performed throughout the UK at venues including The Hammersmith Apollo, Ronnie Scott's Jazz Club, Birmingham Symphony Hall and The Glasgow Royal Concert Hall.
Since meeting in 2015, they have crafted their own unique sound as an acoustic duo, performing at various venues in and around London.
Absolutely fantastic. Communications and preparation was first class as was performance on the night. Venue was a pub which was limited on space and it worked perfectly. Young Lights tuned into the audience and got the vibe spot on. Also put up with my drunken Dad dancing! Thank you both!

How long do Young Lights take to set up?
We can be set-up in under 30 minutes but we will always allow an hour to set-up.
What time do you play?
Normally we will play 2 or 3 sets, each 45 or 60 minutes in length. However, we can be flexible to play at whatever time and for however long suits you.
Are you able to provide music between sets?
Yes, we are able to provide music between sets via Spotify so your guests will be entertained all night. We can either put together a playlist ourselves or you can provide us with a list of your own song choices which we will be happy to play.
Do you have your own PA?
Yes, and this is included in the price.
Do you have all the equipment you need?
Yes, Young Lights will provide all the equipment they need.
Do you have Public Liability Insurance and PAT tested equipment?
Will you perform our first dance?
Yes, we would be delighted to. All we ask is for four weeks notice to learn it.
How much space do you require?
There is only 2 of us so 3m x 3m will be enough.
How much power do you require?
2 power sockets is all we need.
Do I need to provide food/drinks?
Ideally yes please, but soft drinks and cold food is fine, even if just a Sainsbury's meal deal! But please let us know if this is not possible and we will bring food with us.
Can Young Lights tailor their style and performance to my event?
Yes, our set list, playing times and even appearance can be altered to suit your event. Please just let us know in advance.

Absolutely! Don't let the word 'acoustic' fool you! We are able to perform a lively and energetic set which will have your guests dancing and singing along all night.
Are you able to play outside?
Yes, we are more than happy to play outside. We only ask that in the event of rain a gazebo or marquee is provided to protect our equipment and instruments from the rain. Playing acoustically requires no plug sockets, however if you wanted us to play plugged in then we would need some way of connecting an extension lead.
Is parking required for your act?
Yes, parking is required for one car.
Can I choose songs from your set list and if so, how many?
Yes, you can choose as many songs from our set list as you like! Alternatively we can put together a suitable set list ourselves based on your guidance, i.e. that you want an upbeat set or a romantic set.
