We've decided we'd like you to play at our occasion - how do we go about booking you?

Thank you.

Firstly, I need to check my diary to make sure I'm available, and give you a price. You can contact me any way you like but email is preferred so there's always a record of your booking.

Once the date is in my diary, I always ask you to reply to an email, a text message or a letter, confirming the details, it doesn't set anything in stone, but it helps to have an initial plan in place and also minimizes the chances of any misunderstandings.

And if something needs to change unexpectedly, I will do my very best to help!

How much do you charge?

I wish I could display “set-in-stone” charges here, because I don't like the way some DJ's try to charge you the maximum amount they think you can afford.

I price every inquiry in the same way, and I can promise you that for any given situation, you'd pay no more than anyone else.

However, there are a lot of variables - the day of the week, the required hours, the travelling time and distance, the amount of preparation work involved…

As a guide, I can say that my charges range from as little as £150 for a local disco that ends at midnight, right the way up to £500 for New years eve that finishes at 3am!!!

So, please get in touch - tell me what you're looking for including the date and venue, and I'll let you know what I'd charge before we agree to anything.

How far in advance can we book you?

As early as possible !

I'm booked up well in advance of many dates, such as summer weekends and those near to Christmas. Please get in touch as soon as you can.

I’d be happy to put a provisional date in the diary for you with no obligation, it's best to avoid a situation where you decided I’m the person you want, but only got in touch at a later date then find I’m not available.

How and when do we pay you?

It's up to you!

Some people feel secure having paid a deposit, but as a rule I don't ask for deposits.

I'm quite happy to reserve the date in my diary, then, arrive at the venue on the day, and set up all my equipment before you pay a penny. Once you've seen that I'm all ready to start, I ask that full payment is made in cash before we begin. The main reason for this is that I don't like to disturb customers to ask for payment at the end of an occasion, when they may still be busy talking to their guests.

If you wish to make alternative arrangements, this can be discussed at the time of booking.

Can you stay later if we're having fun?

I am not a "clock-watcher" who starts to pack up immediately a set time is reached.

However, the vast majority of the time, it is the venue management, not me, who decide what time I have to stop playing.

After that, everything's dependent on my diary - I may have to go straight to another booking, or to bed, if it's late... but please feel free to ask, as I only charge an hourly rate for extra time.

If you have any other questions - please contact me.
