Performing as a Pianist and Jazz Band in Hertfordshire
I have performed at many of Hertfordshire’s venues both as a solo jazz pianist and with the jazz band. Hertfordshire was originally an area of land designated to a fortress at Hertford under the rule of Edward the Elder. The county is steeped in history and has many historical venues that are used for a variety of different types of event.
Weddings and Events
Hertfordshire’s many wonderful venues are very popular for weddings, and this can be mostly attributed to the county’s proximity to London. The counties venues range from the many historical venues in the area to modern luxury hotels.
The music I play is easy to listen to and is not ultra modern. My influences are pianists like Oscar Peterson, Monty Alexander, George Shearing, Erroll Garner and Dudley Moore – rather than being influenced by the music of the Be-Bop genre (Charlie Parker, Dizzy Gillespie etc.). I try and make my playing inobtrusive (if thats what you need) but I can turn up the gas if you are looking a something more lively. I try and make my music have a ‘feel good’ quality and hopefully it sits comfortably in any social occasion. I also hope my music will add sparkle to your event, without drowning conversation.
Apart from the genres of music I’ve mentioned so far, I can also play old fashioned sing-along songs where I also provide song sheets. Please see Singalong Page for more information about this.
