Hear from
a professional

What do you love most about your job?

I'm a professional musician-entertainer.
I love singing, playing piano, performing, entertaining a crowd, and getting people dancing, singing along and having a great night.

What inspired you to start your own business?

It's what I've always done since a kid. I started to play piano and organ at six, could begin to play songs from tv and radio by ear at around 9, started singing and getting into music more in my teens, and started performing and doing gigs at 16. I went to Uni, and after leaving started performing more full-time - on cruises to do some travelling and see the world for a few years, and then began to get more established at home doing weddings, parties, hotels and clubs.

Why should our clients choose you?

PIANO - VOCAL - TRACKS - And it all sounds just like the original!

One guy - but it sounds like a big band - pop band - rock band (with the help of amazing vocals, live piano and high-quality backing tracks!)

I sing and play everything from 1920s to present day - so that includes everything from:

Early Jazz standards and the great American songbook from the 1930s 40s and 50s (George Gershwin, Cole Porter, Richard Rodgers, Jerome Kern, Hoagy Carmichael, Jimmy Van Heusen, Harold Arlen, Johnny Mercer, Sammy Cahn, Irving Berlin, etc)

The swing/big band era of Frank Sinatra, The Rat Pack, Dean Martin, Sammy Davis, Jr, all the crooners - Tony Bennett, Nat King Cole, Bobby Darin, Matt Monro, Andy Williams, Perry Como, Michael Buble.

1950s and 60s Rock and Roll - Elvis Presley, The Beatles, Buddy Holly, The Rolling Stones, Tom Jones
1960s and 70s Soul & Motown - The Temptations, Otis Redding, Wilson Pickett, CCR, etc.
1970s - David Bowie, Status Quo,
1970s and 80s - Elton John, Billy Joel, etc.
1980s and 90s - U2, Oasis, George Michael, etc.
And contemporary pop/rock/acoustic music from the past twenty years
2000s, 2010s - Ed Sheeran, Coldplay, Bruno Mars, George Ezra, James Bay, Pharrell Williams, etc

All Piano - Vocal - Tracks

The idea is to sound as much like the original recording of every song I perform - and get you up dancing!

Many thanks - and all the best with your event/party.
