Playlist

Most clients are happy for me to make up a playlist for them.
Below are my current backing tracks sorted into five categories. Please note that I usually select a few songs from each category to give a strong mix of tracks from different genres and decades.
If you prefer, you can select songs yourself from the lists/categories to make your own personal playlist. As a guide, I usually get through about thirty songs in an hour and a half.
Please note: if your favourite song is not on the list I will try my best to find the backing track for you.
