"What's included in the evening set up?

What's the difference between the ACOUSTIC EVENING and  ONE MAN BAND EVENING packages?"

I have 2 options for evening setups, these are laid out below.

I highly recommend combing my evening live music with a DJ. I have tried and tested this and in my opinion it offers you and your guests the best of both worlds.

Evening FAQs

 

Do you offer your own DJ service?

In short no. I did provide a full live music and DJ service all day package. I have stopped offering this now.

 

Why do you not offer and all night service?

 I felt it was negatively impacting my live performance. I am a singer and musician and this is my forte'. I want to give my best performance for my customers at all times. I have become so popular now that the long days and late nights after DJing will begin to take its toll on my voice and my body! I have decided to remove that from the equation now so I can focus on my live performance and my new  ONE MAN BAND! 

Aren't you a DJ?

I am/was! It is an art from and controlling a dance floor and a party is no mean feat! Performing live all day and night is very draining and to give 100% you have to be focussed. I feel two heads are better than one. Check out my DJ recommendations. Also some venues have house DJs so I'd go to them also to see what they have to offer, usually priced well!

What about even just a playlist in-between sets or after so I can fill the night?

Sorry, thats not what I do and I don't think you should either! I will offer some playlist music in my 30 min break but thats it. I have done 100s of events. I have seen it all. I will not offer a sub par package or performance. It's just not what I do. When it comes to weddings you shouldn't cut corners. You'll regret it! Get the best professionals in their respective fields to service your big day. I know some bands will offer a playlist service but that is sub standard. It will end up being some music played from a phone or a laptop on a table. This is no way a substitute for a professional DJ with years of experience and high end sound and light to wow your guests! I mean, if all you want at the end is a spotify mix you made that you absolutely LOVE then I wont judge of course! There is a place for everything. This is just not what I offer :)

 

TRUST ME my live music and a professional DJ works brilliantly! 

you get the best of both worlds and when the drinks are flowing, at the end of the night, a DJ is exactly what you need! I wouldn't have a band all night from 7-12! There isn't enough variation. The best parties I've done are with the live music and DJ combo. Its just brilliant! 

Also, so many venues now have sound limiters and don't lend themselves to big LOUD bands. 

"Below are some recommendations of quality professional DJs I can recommend. I am happy to work with your chosen DJ to help create the best night possible! "

Most of these guys I have worked with and the agents for nationwide bookings and a greater variation of talent are also worth getting in touch with.
