Being one of the Home Counties Oxfordshire is a popular escape for couples getting married and trying to escape the hurly-burly of London life. There are just so many popular venues in the county and Eugene has played the piano in many of them. He is available as a pianist in Oxford, Banbury, Witney, Bicester, Henley on Thames, Carterton, Thame or any other area of Oxfordshire for any party, wedding or event.
Eugene specialises in the great standards and jazz songs made famous by Frank Sinatra, The Rat Pack, Nat King Cole, Ella Fitzgerald and Fred Astaire. His style has been honed by listening to the great jazz pianists of the past such as Erroll Garner, Oscar Peterson, George Shearing and Monty Alexander.
Because most of his work in Oxfordshire is as a wedding pianist, he has to be able to turn his hand to many styles of music including: latin, pop, rock, classical and even singalong. This diversity means that he can provide music for any part of your wedding day.
Most of the work in Oxfordshire is either as a solo pianist or for his trio (piano, bass and drums). He can, however, provide a variety of line-ups right up to a five piece jazz band. Please contact us for help with the best type of line up for your event.
The finest musicians in the country are used in all the line-ups and this is reflected in the quality of the music.
Whether you book Eugene as a solo jazz pianist or the full jazz band – you will find that the music has a feel good quality. This quality makes it sit comfortably in any situation adding sparkle to your event without drowning conversation.
There has been a recent trend to book him for Cockney events where all the crowd need is a good sing-song. For events he provides all the song sheets and arrives suitably attired in bowler hat, grandad shirt, waistcoat, double Albert watch chain etc. All you have to do is provide some enthusiastic singer to get things going.
