Eugene’s Work as a Pianist in Brighton and Sussex
There are many pianists in Brighton and Sussex and most of them seem to find work. Someone once said that this area has more musicians per square mile than any other part of the UK. I don’t know whether this is true, but there certainly seems to be a thriving live music scene in the area.
Eugene has performed as a pianist at many venues in the Sussex and Brighton area. These range from pubs and restaurants to hotels and the famous Pavillion. Over the years the venues in the area have been a great provider of work for Eugene as a musician and pianist.
Although Eugene was originally trained classicaly, his style since then has been honed by listening to the great keyboard giants of the past such as Erroll Garner, Oscar Peterson, George Shearing and Monty Alexander.
His speciality is jazz and swing, but because so much of his work in Brighton consists of weddings, so he has to be versatile. This is the reason that he plays music from many genres including: pop, classical, latin, rock and even sing-along. Eugene’s repertoire covers the whole spectrum of music including Bach, Debussy, George Gershwin, Billy Joel, The Beatles, Neil Diamond and more.
Eugene’s Work as a Sing-along Pianist in Sussex
There has been a recent trend to book Eugene as a sing-along pianist for Cockney themed events. For these he dresses in typical Cockney attire and supplies all the song sheets. This means that all you have to do is provide some good enthusiastic singers.
Solo and other Line-ups
Although Eugene has performed many times in Brighton and Sussex with his trio, he can provide any line-up from a solo pianist right up to a five piece jazz band. He uses some of the finest musicians in the country and this is reflected in the quality of the music. Eugene can help you decide on the best line-up for your event and hopefully find something that will match both your budget and available space at the venue. Please contact Eugene for help with choosing line-ups.
Whether you book Eugene as a solo pianist or as a full jazz band for your Sussex based event, you will find that he tries to make the music have a feel good quality. A quality that makes it sit comfortably in any social situation. He tries to make the music add sparkle to your event without drowning conversation.
