A soulful voice and jazz infused keyboard, I play everything from current hits to vintage motown and classics that we all know and love!

I took piano lessons as a small child and developed the basics of harmony and classical theory. Then I realised that I needed to break free from the world of written music, and started to play my own ideas and taught myself to play blues and Jazz. I played a lot more often and got a lot better as a result. I always used to sing from a young age so it made sense to combine the two skills. After I finished my formal university education, I realised that music was my true calling in life, so I enrolled in London Music School which helped me to learn from the professional players and teachers there. I developed a deeper understanding of music, and invaluable experience. I love improvisation and composition and I play my keyboard every day that I can, to practice and because I enjoy it. As a function act I play and sing soulful versions of well known songs, as well as vintage classics. I also love to play Jazz and I can improvise and do background music. I can play on my own or with my quartet (with cajon, bass, guitar players) if you want a bigger sound. Aside from function work, I also teach piano, play as a session keyboard player with other artists, and I have my own original band 'Lost In Caravaggio', which was formed in 2014 and gives me more opportunities to explore my creative side by writing original music. I enjoy playing to big or small crowds, because when I play I enjoy the moment so much that I am happy even to play on my own at home, or in front of 500 people. I look forward to playing at your event and adding some soulful magic!

Customer questions

What if my timings change after I've booked you?

We always try our best to be flexible to help ensure your event runs as smoothly as possible. If timings change slightly in the run up to the event just let us know.

Can you provide an iPod/DJ service before and between your sets?

Absolutely. This is a really popular request and we actually offer this service for a very reasonable price. If you'd like to play your music through our PA system using your laptop or iPad the first hour is free and after that we charge £50/hour. We do not off a DJ service.

How much time do you need to set up?

We usually set up about 1 to 1.5 hours before the performance time. The setup itself may only take 30 minutes but we like to get it done early. As soon as our PA is set up we can provide a free playlist service to help set the atmosphere and get your guests ready for our live performance!

Can I pick the pieces you play from the set list?

Our set lists are crafted from countless performances and learning what works best to ensure guests dance and have an amazing time. However, we're definitely happy to chat through and make sure we find what works for your event.

Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?

Yes, absolutely!

Can you learn specific pieces before the event?

If a song isn't included in our song list there may still be a chance we already know it. If there is a special song you'd like us to learn we are happy to do this for you. There is a fee of £30 for this service to take into account rehearsal times.

Andy was fantastic. Very quick to respond and very flexible. Explained very basically how I wanted the event to run and he totally fit round me. He's a talented guy, a great signing voice and also provided some lovely background Jazz whilst we needed the ambience. Always a bit of a gamble when booking entertainment, but I can confidently say that Andy lived up to all expectations.
