Pianist for any wedding, party or event
Pianist, Duo or Band
My name is Eugene Portman and my work in Hampshire tends to revolve around being a wedding pianist. A lot of this work is as a soloist, but I can provide many other line-ups. These range from duos (piano and bass or piano and vocals) right up to a five piece jazz band. If you are considering having a larger line-up than just a soloist please contact me. I can provide one that will match both your budget and available space at the venue.
Weddings Pianist in Hampshire
This area of England has many venues. Furthermore, it is definitely a hotspot for couples wishing to get married away from the hurly-burly of London life. A lot of my work in Hampshire is as a wedding pianist, but I al play for other evnts. These include birthday parties, christenings, product launches, anniversaries, and corporate events.
Hampshire has quite an established jazz scene and as a pianist my style has definitely got a leaning towards this genre of music. However, my hand (or hands!) to many other styles including classical, Latin, rock, pop, and sing-a-long. Music can be provided for every part of your wedding day ranging from Beethoven and Debussy to Fats Domino and Coldplay.
Whether you book me as a solo jazz pianist or the full jazz band – you will find that I try and make the music have a feel-good quality and consists of songs we all know. I hope that my music sits comfortably in any wedding or party and will add sparkle without drowning conversation.
