Performing as a Pianist in Gloucestershire
Gloucestershire has provided me with plenty of work as a pianist over the years. Furthermore, I always look forward to visiting this scenic county and I hope that the work continues.
Gloucestershire is a popular wedding destination and most of my work in the area is as a wedding pianist. These weddings have been in a wide range of venues from local pubs to historic country houses.
From a Solo Pianist to a Jazz Band
The biggest part of my work in Gloucestershire is as a solo pianist. But, I can provide a range of line-ups from duos to a five-piece jazz band. The full range is as follows:
- 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 can find a line-up that will match both your budget and available space at your chosen venue.
I trained as a classical pianist before developing an interest in jazz. My jazz piano style evolved through listening to the great jazz pianists of the past. These include Oscar Peterson, George Shearing, and Erroll Garner.
Most of my work consists of weddings and I have to be able to play many styles of music. Furthermore, couples often want me to play a different style of music for each part of their special day. Here are some of the genres of music I play: pop, rock, Latin, classical, blues, and even singalong.
A recent trend has been to book me as a singalong pianist, and it has become something I love. The events that need this style of music tend to be Wartime or Cockney themed. Although I’m also hired to play this style of music for other types of events including weddings.
