My work as a pianist in Dorset

I always get excited when I am booked as a pianist in Dorset. This wonderful county is the home to many great venues from historic castles (such as the one at Lulworth) to luxury hotels which are in abundance around Bournemouth and Poole. There are many pianists in Dorset especially around the Bournemouth and Poole areas.

I perform for all kinds of events from private parties to store openings, but more often than not I am booked as a wedding pianist and Dorset provides me with plenty of weddings.

Please visit my Home Page

Solo Pianist, Duo, Trio or Jazz Band?

I perform often as a solo pianist, but I also offer a range of larger line-ups from duos (piano and bass or piano and vocals) right up to a full jazz band. Whatever the event I can offer a line-up that will suit both your budget and available space at the venue. The larger combinations can perform a wider variety of music and are perfect for larger events.

As stated earlier Dorset is is very popular for weddings and the jazz band line-up is becoming very popular for these events. Don't forget that, although I play for many weddings, I can also provide piano music for parties and corporate events.

The Music

The music I play is easy to listen to and is not ultra modern. My influences are jazz pianists such as 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 piano playing unobtrusive (if that's 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 piano music will add sparkle to your wedding or event, without drowning conversation.

Here are some of the venues in Yorkshire where I have been booked as a pianist:

Royal Bath Hotel (The), Bath Road, Bournemouth, Dorset BH1 2EW - There is a grand piano at this venue, but it was broken on the last occasion I played there, and I had use my digital piano. Luckily I always have this with me as a fall back.

Abbotsbury Subtropical Gardens, Abbotsbury, Nr Weymouth, Dorset - No piano unfortunately, but a really nice wedding venue nevertheless.

Lulworth Castle, Lulworth, Dorset - This is one of my favourite venues and I just love playing the piano there. It makes a fantastic wedding venue and is very picturesque.

The Boat That Rocks Bar & Restaurant, Portland Marina, Osprey Quay, Portland, Dorset - This is quite a new venue, but is becoming very popular for events. Chantmarle Manor, Frome St Quintin, Dorset DT2 0HD

East Close Hotel, Lyndhurst Rd Hinton, Christchurch, Dorset - This is a very nice venue and is very popular for weddings. They don't have a piano so a pianist would need to take his own instrument when being booked for events here.
