Performing as a Pianist in Canterbury, Kent
Kent is very close to where I live. So it’s not surprising that I do a lot of work in the county as a pianist. As with other areas around the UK, the work in the county consists mostly of weddings. There is a huge choice of venues for couples to choose from for their big day. Furthermore, the county is very popular with couples trying to get away from the throng of London. Apart from weddings, I have done many corporate events, private parties and other events in the area. Cockney style theme events are also popular in the area and I have been booked as a singalong pianist for many of these.
From a Solo Pianist to a Jazz Band
I’ve got to say that the bulk of my work is as a solo pianist. However, I can provide line-ups from a duo right up to a five-piece jazz band.
If you contact me, I can help you select a line-up that matches both your budget and space at the venue.
My favourite type of music to play is jazz. My piano style has developed through listening to the great pianists of the past. These include the likes of Oscar Peterson, Erroll Garner, George Shearing, and Count Basie. Furthermore, I love playing all the jazz standards that were performed by Ella Fitzgerald, Nat King Cole, and Frank Sinatra.
Apart from jazz, I do enjoy playing music from other genres. These include pop, rock, Latin, classical, blues, and even singalong. The demand for me as a singalong pianist has been a recent thing and It is something I enjoy. Furthermore, a lot of these Cockney themed events have been in the Kent area.
Whether you book me as a solo pianist or in a larger line-up, I try to make the music have a ‘feel-good’ quality. Hopefully adding sparkle to your event without drowning conversation.
