Where can we go to see Kevin perform?
Don't be afraid to book a musician without having seen them play live, provided you are happy with their demo, song list and experience. The top private event/wedding/corporate event musicians tend only to play at private events because they have enough private work never to need to play pub and club events. Realistically, the only time you would be able to view such a musician would be at someone else's event.
