Your completed booking and deposit represent a contact between us. You can check my booked dates on-line to confirm that your event is in my schedule and that there is no ‘double booking’. It is always a good idea for us to talk a week or so before the event just to double check the details.
“Do you allow Karaoke on the night?”
Generally not. If you want a sing-a-long as part of the evening it would be best to book a Karaoke along with myself. My public liability insurance only covers my own use of the equipment on-stage.
