Me as a pianist in Yorkshire

I was born and brought up in Yorkshire, and it is always really nice for me to play pianoin my home county. Although I have performed throughout Yorkshire as a solo jazz pianist, I am now being called upon more and more to provide larger line-ups such as: duos, trios, quartets and the full jazz band which consists of vocals, piano, bass, drums and sax.

People travel from all over Britain to have their weddings in Yorkshire and my services as a pianist are called upon more and more frequently. Besides performing as a wedding pianist in Yorkshire, I am also available for private parties, store openings and corporate events.

The Music

The music I play is easy to listen to and is not ultra modern. My influences are the great 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 playing inobtrusive (if thats 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 music will add sparkle to your event, without drowning conversation.

A little bit about Yorkshire

Yorkshire is our largest county and has a population of 5,284,000. That is a larger population than New Zealand, Finland or Lybia.

Due to it's enormity, Yorkshire has many venues and there is an ever increasing demand for pianists, musicians and bands to perform at these locations. Yorkshire's venues are very varied from hotels and museums in cities such as Leeds, Sheffield, Bradford & Hull; to historic buildings and country pubs in the more rural areas. There are so many wonderful venues in this part of England and I have performed as a pianist at many of them.
