Performing as a Wedding Pianist and Jazz Band in Yorkshire
A lot of my work in Yorkshire is as a wedding pianist. Furthermore, I always try and do as much work in the area as I can as my family lives there and it is nice to visit my home county.
People travel from all over Britain to have their weddings in Yorkshire and the demand for me as a pianist is growing. Besides my work as a wedding pianist, I am also available for parties and corporate events. If you would like to find out more about weddings then please visit www.ukweddingpianist.co.uk/.
Most of the time I perform at weddings around the Yorkshire area as a solo pianist, but I am sometimes called upon to provide larger line-ups. These include duos, trios, quartets, and a five-piece jazz band. The largest line-up consists of vocals, piano, bass, drums, and sax. Here is the full list of all the line-ups I 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
If you contact me I can help you choose a line-up that will match both your budget and the available space at the venue.
The music I play is easy to listen to and is not ultra-modern. My influences are the great jazz pianists of the past. Pianists such as Oscar Peterson, George Shearing, Erroll Garner, and Dudley Moore are the kind of musicians I prefer. Sometimes the more modern forms of jazz can be difficult for people to understand.
I often have to perform in Yorkshire as a wedding pianist and this requires me to be able to play many different genres of music. This is so that I can provide music for the various parts of the day. For example, classical music is often preferred for ceremonies, while jazz seems to become increasingly popular for drinks receptions. Also, the wedding breakfast and the evening reception would each require a different style of music.
Luckily I play many different styles of music which includes pop, rock, Latin, classical, blues, and even singalong. I play anything from Bach to Debussy and Ella Fitzgerald to the Kinks.
When I play background music for weddings, I try and make my piano playing inobtrusive. However, 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 so that it sits well in any social occasion. My main aim is to add sparkle to your event, without drowning conversation.
