Performing as a Pianist in Hampshire

My name is Eugene Portman and a lot of my work as a pianist comes from the Hampshire area. The region has many lovely venues and is definitely a hotspot for couples wishing to marry away from the hurly-burly of London life.

A lot of my work in Hampshire consists of playing the piano for weddings, but I am also available for other types of events. These include birthday parties, christenings, outdoor events, anniversaries, and corporate events.

From a Solo Pianist to a Jazz Band

Most of my performances in Hampshire are as a solo pianist. However, I also provide many other line-ups from duos and trios right up to a jazz band. Here is a full list of the line-ups I have available:

  • 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

If you contact me I can help you choose the perfect line-up for your event. This will be a line-up that will match both your budget and available space at the venue.

Whether you book me as a soloist or a band, I try and make the music have a feel-good quality. One of the ways I do this is by performing songs we all know and love. I try and make my music fit comfortably at any wedding, social event, or party. In fact, I hope that my music will add sparkle to your event without drowning conversation.

The Music

The South of England has quite an established jazz scene and a lot of my work as a pianist comes from this source. I can, however, turn my hand to many other styles of music including classical, Latin, rock, pop and sing-a-long. I can provide music for every part of your wedding day and I can play piano music from Beethoven and Debussy to Fats Domino and the Kinks.

A recent trend in the South of England has led to me being booked as a sing-along pianist in the Hampshire area. These sing-along events are great fun and I always look forward to my next one.

Here are some of the Hampshire venues that have used my services as a pianist:

  • Southampton City Art Gallery, Civic Centre, Commercial Road, Southampton., Hampshire. A pianist’s paradise. This fine venue has a really nice piano that is dying to be played.
  • The Elvetham, Hartley Whitney, Hampshire RG27 8AR. The Elvetham is a lovely place to hold an event and I have been hired as a wedding pianist here on a number of occasions. They do have a piano, but it is seldom used due to its location at the venue.
  • Lainston House Hotel, Sparsholt, Winchester SO21 2LT. A great rural venue with a nice piano in the main building. Wedding breakfasts, however, usually take place in the Dawley Barn so a digital piano is always needed.
  • The Royal Bath Hotel, Bath Road, Bournemouth BH1 2EW. I’ve play the piano at this hotel often and I always enjoy every visit.
  • Stansted Park, Rowlands Castle, Hampshire PO9 6DX. A magnificent venue that has a nice piano in one of its rooms.
  • Rhinefield House Hotel. Rhinefield Road. Brockenhurst. Hampshire. SO42 7QB. This is a lovely hotel and I am booked to perform as a pianist at this venue often.
