Available in Nottingham, Mansfield, Worksop, Newark, Retford, Southwell or any other area of Nottinghamshire.
Pianist for any party, wedding or event.
Eugene has worked as a pianist in quite a number of Nottinghamshire’s venues. These range form golf clubs such as Bondhay Golf Club and the one at Ruddington; to historic venues such as Hodsock Priory Near Worksop, and Stubton Hall near Newark. The county has a wide range of quality venues for anyone organising a wedding or any other event.
As far as music is concerned, Eugene’s first love is jazz. This consists of songs composed by the great American song writers of the past such as George Gershwin, Cole Porter and Irving Berlin. His piano style was forged by listening and studying the keyboard giants of yesterday. Oscar Peterson, Erroll Garner, George Shearing and Teddy Wilson were pianists who were of particular influence.
Jazz is not the only style that Eugene plays, he is much more versatile than this. Because he is booked so frequently as a wedding pianist, he has to be able to play many genres in order to play for the different parts of the day. The many styles include pop, rock, latin, classical, ragtime, blues and sing-along.
Cockney Themed Events
There has been a recent demand to hire Eugene as a sing-along pianist. Most of the events that require this sort of thing tend to be Cockney themed, but event quite formal functions (even weddings) sometimes require a sing-along at some point.
Cockney themed parties seem to be the trend at the moment and Eugene can provide everything you need. He will arrive with all the song sheets so that all you have to do is make sure that you have some enthusiastic singers. He will also dress in fitting attire consisting of bowler hat, red neckerchief, grandad shirt, waistcoat, pocket watch etc.
