Do you take requests? Happily! Ashley will take special requests for events several weeks in advance. She also has an iPad on hand, and will do her best to take requests on the day/night – providing it’s nothing too obscure!
What do you charge? It depends. Lots of factors are taken into consideration, including but not limited to, date, length of set, type of event, and size of audience. Contact us for a quote, and be sure to include as much information as possible.
Will you provide your own PA? Yes. We provide a high-quality PA for all UK performances, unless otherwise specified. Clients from other countries or regions should get in touch to confirm.
How far will you travel? Worldwide! The majority of our performances are in the northwest of England, but Ashley frequently travels to destinations throughout the UK, across Europe, and around the world. For shows outside the immediate nortwest region, the client will be expected to cover the cost of travel and accomodation (if applicable) to the artist.
Can you perform with a duo? Or a band? Absolutely. Although Ashley usually performs cover sets solo, she can also provide a duo, trio, or even a full 6-piece band with double bass or banjo! Whatever you’re in the mood for, we’ve got you covered.
What is your standard set length/format? For most performances, the format is made up of 2×45 minute sets with a short break in-between. Please let us know in advance if you would prefer a different format.
Can you DJ in-between sets? Yes. We have various playlists available to play through the PA system. We can play recorded music during the break, and, for a fee, an extra DJ set can be arranged following the live music.
Do you use backing tracks? Not usually, but we can upon request.
Do you work with agencies or promoters? Sometimes – if you’re an agency or third party who is interested in working with Ashley, please get in touch.
What is your cancellation policy?
Details on our cancellation policy can be found in our terms & conditions.
