Pianist for any party, wedding, or event.
There are very few weeks in the year when East Anglia isn’t beckoning me to come over and provide music for some event or wedding. There are some good pianists in the Suffolk area, but there is still a demand for more. Popular venues that use my services quite regularly are Hengrave Hall near Bury St Edmunds, Butley Priory near Woodbridge, and Glemham Hall.
I specialise in the great jazz standards and songs made famous by Frank Sinatra, The Rat Pack, Nat King Cole, Ella Fitzgerald, and Fred Astaire. My style has been honed by listening to the keyboard giants of the past such as Erroll Garner, Oscar Peterson, George Shearing, and Monty Alexander.
Most of the time I am booked as a wedding pianist which means that I have to play music from many different genres to fit in with the requirements of the day. Luckily I have an extensive repertoire that covers rock, pop, classical, Latin, ragtime, and even sing-along. I can play anything from Bach, Einaudi, and Debussy right up to Abba, The Beatles, and Christina Perri.
There has been a recent trend to book me as a sing-along pianist for Cockney themed events and even some weddings. I dress in typical Cockney attire and provide all the song sheets for this. Please visit THIS PAGE or visit www.uksingalongpianist.co.uk for more information.
Although most of my work in Suffolk has been either as a solo pianist or as a duo, I can also be hired in line ups right up to a five-piece jazz band. I use some of the finest jazz musicians in the country and I hope that this is reflected in the quality of the music. Please contact us for help with the best type of line up for your event.
Whether you book me as a solo jazz pianist or the full jazz band, I still try to maintain a feel-good quality in my music. I hope this quality makes the music sit comfortably in any situation adding sparkle to your event without drowning conversation.
