Having arrived at Ware Priory in plenty of time I set up my piano and all the rest of my gear at the front of the function room. It took me about forty minutes to set up so I was well ahead of schedule. I had plenty of time so I had a walk around […]

I suppose that I had been playing the piano for about ten minutes when I realised that this was the perfect gig. It was a masonic event at Giacomo’s in Sevenoaks Weald, Kent. It’s so nice to perform for appreciative people and this audience was amazing. Also, Giacomo and Daniella, the owners of this fabulous […]

Last night’s gig required me to play the piano for a Cockney singalong for a 70th birthday party. The venue was The Marksman, in Hackney, London and it was a proper pub with a great atmosphere. The birthday boy was an East End lad and wanted a typical pub pianist to play all the old […]

Last night’s visit to The Bulls Head at Fishbourne, West Sussex was really enjoyable and I look forward to visiting this great pub again. I was booked to conduct a piano led Christmas singalong which was to cover all the old Cockney favourites plus loads of Christmas songs and carols. I started setting up my […]

It was quite cold as I waited for the 5:55am London train. I had my digital piano strapped to a foldaway sack trolley and I had a small amplifier and leads in a small backpack. I was on my way to a wedding at Asia House, Cavendish Street and the ceremony started at 10:30am. I […]

Baby Grand Piano Shell

Yesterday I played the piano for a wedding at the Tythe Barn at Priston Mill. This was my second visit to this wonderful venue and I was really looking forward to it. I was only required to play for the ceremony and the reception drinks. This meant that I had an early finish (4:30pm) and […]

Orchardleigh House

I can’t remember how many times I’ve played the piano at Orchardleigh court, but it’s been quite a few. The venue is just outside the small town of Frome which is a lovely little place and I often stay the night there if I am performing in the area. On this occasion I was playing […]
