Christie Prentice's FAQs

How much space do I need?

4 metres long x 2 metres deep preferably. 

How is it best to time things?

I arrive 1 hr before I'm due to start singing - a 30-45 min break in between and then my last 45 min set. Timings are not set in stone so I can always be flexible to work around catering, speeches, other entertainment etc.

Can I pick Christie's playlist?

Yes you can , I always welcome suggestions and favourite songs you would like me to perform. But from past experience I feel it's always best to see what works well on the day so I can give you a night to remember.

Where will you travel?

I don't have a limit on how far I will travel, but it may mean a POA if it's somewhere I don't normally travel to (international veneus, mainly).

Can I see you play live?

I very rarely play regular events now. I will keep my social sites & website updated with any regular events that are open to the public.

Will you learn our special song?

Yes I am happy to learn your special song or first dance as long as I have enough time to learn it.

Is the video on your website a true reflection of you?

Yes, but I'm much better live.

How do I book you?

Through Alive Network Entertainment Agency.

Are you able to DJ in between sets?

How long do you play for?

Normally 2 x 45mins sets but more on request for an extra small fee. See my What I Do page for more service details. 

What time do you start and finish?

Whatever time is relevant. I work closely with the coordinator and yourself to perform when best suited. The entirety of my time at your event will last on more than 6 hours, any longer and an extra fee will incur.

How long do you take to set up?

I always say 1hr, so I'm not rushing but realistically about 30mins. With DJ as well then I will take 1hr to set up.

Can I professionally book you?

Yes.

Can someone get up and sing you with you?

Yes for a song or two but then it's probably best if I keep it rolling from there.
