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
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.
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

piano to this venue as it doesn't have a piano.

for weddings. I always have to take a digital piano to this
venue as they don't have a piano of their own.

I usually end up playing in another part of the building.
