Frequently asked questions
Q: Do you travel outside of Auckland?
A: Yes, I do. The cost of travel, and if required, accommodation will be included in my fee.

A: Yes, I come with a full PA system.
Q: Can I request songs that are not listed in your repertoire?
A: If you wish, I’ll do my best to learn one or two new songs for your event. Some songs, though, might not be practical. If that is the case, I will discuss with you suitable alternatives.
Q: How long can you play for?
A: As a soloist, I can perform up to four 50-minute sets. My band, Standard Deviation, can perform up to three 50-minute sets.
Q: Is your music suitable for dancing to?
A: As a soloist, no. My music is suitable for creating a nice atmosphere while people talk to each other. My band, Standard Deviation, though, can play jazz-style dance music.
