Cheshire is a often neglected as a tourist area, but the county has much to offer. Eugene is continually being hired in the area as a pianist for weddings, parties and corporate events. The county offers a wide range of venues from historic and unusual buildings such as Rookery Hall in Crewe and The Belle Epoque in Knutsford; to modern venues such as the Abode in Chester. The vast array of venues in the area takes the headache out organising a party or wedding.
Eugene has always been keen on jazz and it has become his main speciality. He plays songs made famous by Nat King Cole, Frank Sinatra, Tony Bennett and many other similar artists. His younger days were spent listening to Oscar Peterson, Erroll Garner, George Shearing and Teddy Wilson. The recordings of these pianists have formed the backbone of his own keyboard style.
Cheshire provides Eugene with plenty of work as a wedding pianist. When playing for this type of event it is important to be versatile so that music can be provided for any part of the day. Jazz has been mentioned, but Eugene can play many other genres of music including pop, rock, classical, latin, blues and even sing-along.
Cockney Themed Events
Trends change and there has been a very recent one to book Eugene as a singalong pianist. This is often for Cockney themed events, but a good old sing-song often goes down really well at quite formal events and even some weddings. This trend started around the London area and has spread throughout the UK to Cheshire and beyond.
When booking Eugene as a sing-along pianist all you have to provide is some enthusiastic singers and he will do all the rest. He can provide all the song sheets and he can come dressed as a Cockney to add a bit of authenticity to your event. His attire consists of bowler hat, waistcoat, red neckerchief, grandad shirt, Albert chain and pocket watch etc.
Cheshire gives Eugene a lot of work both as a solo pianist and also as an ensemble musician. He regular provides line-ups ranging from just a duo, right up to a five piece jazz band consisting of piano, bass, drums, vocals and sax. Eugene use the very best musicians so that you can be assured that the music will be of the highest quality.
You will find that the music has a feel good quality, whether you book Eugene as a soloist or the full jazz band. This quality makes the music sit comfortably in any situation adding sparkle to your event without drowning conversation.
