Available in Brighton and other areas of Sussex
Pianist for any party, wedding or event.
There are many pianists in Brighton and Sussex and most of them seem to find work. Someone once said that this area has more musicians per square mile than any other part of the UK. I don’t know whether this is true, but there certainly seems to a thriving live music scene.
There are many venues in the vicinity ranging from pubs and restaurants to hotels and the famous Pavillion.
The area provides Eugene with plenty of work as a wedding pianist and as a provider of corporate entertainment.
Although Eugene was originally trained classicaly, his style since then has been honed by listening to the great keyboard giants of the past such as Erroll Garner, Oscar Peterson, George Shearing and Monty Alexander.
His speciality is jazz and swing, but because so much of his work in Brighton consists of weddings, he has to be able to play music from many genres including: pop, classical, latin, rock and even sing-along. His repertoire consists of great tunes from the great jazz standards of Gershwin and Cole Porter to the great classical works of Chopin and Debussy.
There has been a recent trend to book him as a sing-along pianist for Cockney themed events. For these he dresses in suitable attire consisting of bowler hat, waistcoat, grandad shirt, red neckerchief etc. On these occasions he provides song sheets so that all you have to do is provide some good enthusiastic singers.
Solo and other Line-ups
Although Eugene has performed many times in Brighton with his trio, he can provide any line-up from a solo pianist right up to a five piece jazz band. He uses some of the finest musicians in the country and this is reflected in the quality of the music. We can help you decide on the best line-up for your event and hopefully find something that will match both your budget and available space at the venue.
