Pianists and Jazz Bands in Essex

Pianists in Essex are plentiful, but there are still plenty of weddings and events to provide a constant source of work for piano players in the neighbouring counties. I probably perform more in Essex than any other county and I almost feel as if it is a second home. There was a time when I was mostly hired as a solo pianist, but as the years have gone by I have found that large line-ups are more popular and there is particularly a huge demand for jazz bands in Essexthe area. I can cater for most demands as I can provide anything from a duo (piano and bass or piano and vocals) right up to a five piece band (piano, bass, drums, vocals and sax).

Weddings and Events

I'm often booked as a wedding pianist in Essex, but I can also provide music for many other types of events including: parties, corporate events, music festivals, and store openings. I also play the piano for quite a few outdoor events and I can provide a gazebo for cover. I can even use my piano without a mains electricity supply if needed.

The Music

I am primarily a jazz pianist, but please don't let this scare you off - the music I play is quite accesible, being influenced by jazz pianists such as Oscar Peterson, Monty Alexander, George Shearing, Erroll Garner and Essex born pianist Jamie Cullum. I try and make the music I play entertaining to everyone, and although I am primarily a jazz pianist, I can play music from many genres including: pop, rock, sing-a-long, classical and latin. I hope my music has a 'feel good' quality and that it sits comfortably in any social occasion. I also try and make my music add sparkle to your event, without drowning conversation.

Here are some of the venues in where I have performed as a pianist:

 

Essex County Hotel, Aviation Way, Southend SS2 6UN - I always have to take my digital piano to this venue as it doesn't have a piano.

Blake Hall, Ongar, Essex. CM5 0DG - Blake hall has a lovely old barn that is available for weddings. I always have to take a digital piano to this venue as they don't have a piano of their own.

Fennes Estate, Bocking, Braintree, Essex. CM7 5PL - To my knowledge this venue doesn't have a piano. I have always had to take my own instrument when I've been booked at Fennes Estate.

Gosfield Hall, Gosfield, Essex CO9 1SF - They have a piano in the Grand Salon, but I usually end up playing in another part of the building. A lot of weddings book a pianist at this particular venue.

Leez Priory, Hartford End, Great Leighs, Chelmsford CM3 1JP

Orsett Hall, Prince Charles Avenue, Orsett RM16 3HS
