St Mary's Church, The Elvetham, Hartley
I have been hired as a solo pianist in Hampshire
many times in both venues and private homes. As well as
offering myself as a solo pianist, I can also be hired in
larger line-ups. These range from duos (piano and vocals
or piano and bass) right up to a five piece jazz band.
Hampshire is a large county and has a vast
array of venues to choose from. Like most of the counties
in the South East of Engand, Hampshire is popular for weddings.
This is mainly due to the fact that it is only a stones
throw from London. Many Londoners like to escape from the
metropolis once in a while - especially on their wedding
day. It is due to popularity of this area that I am so frequently
hired as a wedding pianist.
Hamphire has a lot to offer as far as venues
are concerned and I am often hired to play the piano at
these locations for corporate events, private parties, store
openings, product launches and other events. There are a
lot of thriving businesses in Hampshire and corporate entertainment
is where a lot of my piano work lies.
My speciality is jazz piano, but please don't
let that frighten you off. The music I play has been influenced
by jazz pianists such as Oscar Peterson, George Shearing,
Erroll Garner and Dudley Moore, rather than the musicians
who who perform the more modern forms of jazz. I can also
play music from many other genres including rock, pop, latin,
classical and sing-along. I try and make my music have a
'feel good' quality and hopefully it sits comfortably in
any social occasion. I also hope my music will add sparkle
to your event, without drowning conversation.
