Pricing & Costs
- Hi there! I am a solo artist, music act, consisting of electric and acoustic guitars and vocals with professionally recorded instruments as backing tracks. For the majority of songs, I sing whilst playing either the electric or acoustic guitar, playing lead and rhythm. I will sometimes just sing without the guitars to mix it up a bit. My backing tracks are real recorded instruments, so if you close your eyes at a gig, it sounds like a full band playing. I can play in either the smallest of venues, because of my compact PA system, which is the top of the range Bose L1 model 11, with a tone match desk and B2 Bass module, or I can play in the largest of venues, as my equipment sounds crystal clear at very high volumes. So the size of the gig really does not matter! I have 2 pieces of lighting equipment that will light up the stage and also light onto the dance floor and into the audience. I have songs for everyone, all ages, all occasions and tastes, from the 1950's right up to now, which you will find it impossible NOT to sing and dance along to! Check out my website to find some of your favourite songs. I know many songs as you will see and I am learning more everyday. If you book a wedding with me I will also learn your fist dance for the special day. I can work with you on set times. To give you an idea, I can have background music playing for people arriving and background music playing if you wish to have a buffet/disco break etc in the middle, with up to 3 hours of live music either side of the buffet/disco break. I provide not just music but an overall entertainment package. I come highly recommended by all who see me. I have many regular gigs in pubs locally who ask me back time and time again, such as Stranraer Football Club, The Vaults in Girvan, The Twa Dugs in Ayr, The Crown in Portpatrick and many more! I have also had many weddings booked as a result of these gigs. You can see some of my excellent reviews on nearly every page on my website.

I always advise potential clients to come and see me Live before you make any booking. Once you are happy and confident that Surreal will be the perfect choice for your perfect occasion, I will get contact details and all the information about timings regarding first dance, etc. I would then need a £100 deposit to confirm your date. I will send you a confirmation of booking. I can learn a specific song for your first dance or play the actual song through the speakers, that would be your choice. I can work with you on set times but to give you an idea, I can have background music playing for people arriving and background music playing if you wish to have a buffet/disco break etc in the middle, with up to 3 to 3 and a half hours of live music in total, split up, either side of the buffet/disco break.
