Planning a special event and want to make it more special? Consider adding live piano music to the mix.
What I provide:
- Play piano or organ for your event.
- Play classical, jazz, pop, or seasonal music.
- Provide my own instrument if the venue does not have one.
- Accompany soloists of all types.
- Provide an amplifier for for break music/toasts. Note, you will need to provide the microphone, cable, or device/cable.
- Assist in finding soloists or other instrumentalists.
- Access to my large library of sheet music.
What you need to provide:
- A power source
- Tuning if the provided instrument is out of tune.
- You own microphone, cables, and device if you are using my amplifier.
- Space for me to set up.
- A designated way to pay for services. (This is particularly important for weddings)
Most music is possible with enough lead time. As a classical musician, I can learn difficult music quickly. As a jazz musician, I can improvise music to tailor to your needs.
- The strangest piece I’ve ever played for a wedding is Elton John’s Tiny Dancer. It’s a great piece, but for a wedding….
- The most popular piece I play for weddings is Canon in D.
- The most specific corporate gig that I’ve played was game show music for the Iowa Asphalt Paving Association’s Asphalt Awards.
- The hardest gig that I’ve played was a funeral for a fallen soldier on the ten-year anniversary of September 11.
- The most unusual location was the frozen food section of a grocery store opening. Yes. I did perform songs from Frozen and Ice, Ice, Baby.
- My favorite gigs are ones that allow the party to be enjoyable and meet the client needs. I like to solve potential problems before the day of the performance so that I just show up, set up, and play a great gig.
