  • Can play for up to 4 hours at a time.
  • Can tailor the set lengths to suit each event. (3×45, 4×30 etc)
  • For Wedding packages I can offer longer set times.

I create music with the use of guitar, violin, vocals and my loop station. This means I can emulate the sound of a band or string orchestra by myself, plus giving the songs an originality and making something special from it.
