About Colin

Keyboardist
Dartford
Verified profile
Colin is an experienced keyboard player used to backing cabaret. Main focus on "chillout" music to dine and relax to. An American songbook.

Colin started his musical career as a Hammond organ player in a small band based in the West Country. In 1965 he started at the then famous cabaret and night club backing all the cabaret acts that visited including many stars of the day. He remained as Musical Director of the club for some considerable time with anything from a three piece to a thirty two piece orchestra depending who the cabaret acts were. He left after thirteen years to pursue a different career but returned after a while to play keyboards in restaurants and hotels. Colin is able to sight read for backing cabaret and currently has his own keyboards including a portable Hammond XK2 and a Kwai electric piano. He also carries his own PA. Swing and light jazz music is his love.

Colin, was absolutely fantastic!! The set he played was the perfect accompaniment to to the birthday meal. The guests had issues getting to the venue on time, due to an event on in London. He therefore accounted for this and played longer than actually contracted, which made the birthday boy very happy indeed! Thanks again!

Absolutely lovely afternoon listening to Cloud Nine playing at my husband’s birthday garden party (piano, drums, sax). All the guests thought they were great - they were punctual and totally self sufficient in setting up, played all afternoon with barely a break, played a beautiful selection of jazz, which just touched the mood of the event, were a pleasure to be with. Couldn’t recommend Cloud Nine highly enough: you won’t be disappointed.
