Performing as a Pianist in Essex
My name is Eugene Portman and I think that any Essex based pianist is lucky to have such a wonderful variety of venues to perform in. I feel privileged in that I am booked to play the piano for so many weddings and other events in this wonderful county. This area has many venues at its disposal and most of my performances in Essex are as a wedding pianist.
From a Solo Pianist to a Jazz Band
Essex gives me a lot of work as a solo pianist, but I can provide a variety of line-ups right up to a five-piece jazz band. This variety makes it very easy to find a line-up that will match both your budget and available space at the venue. Here is a list of all the line-ups I can provide:
- Duo – piano and vocals or piano and bass
- Trio – piano, bass and vocals or piano, bass and drums
- Quartet – piano, bass, drums and vocals or piano, bass, drums and sax
- Five Piece Jazz Band – piano, bass, drums, sax and vocals
I try and make my music enhance your event whether you book me as a solo pianist or a larger line-up.
I specialise in jazz piano and Essex has always provided me with work as a pianist performing this genre. However, as a wedding pianist, I am frequently called upon to perform other styles and genres of music. These include classical music, blues, rock, pop, Latin, and even sing-along (please see sing-along page or www.uksingalongpianist.co.uk).
I can provide music from many genres for the different parts of your wedding day or event. Also, I always try and give my music a feel-good quality, and making my music sit comfortably in any situation is my main aim. Furthermore, I hope the music will add sparkle to your event without drowning conversation.
