About Craig

Singing pianist
Warrington
Public liability insurance of £10 million
Craig is a highly In demand pianist and vocalist from cheshire. He regularly tours with Grammy winning artists. Band options available.

Thankyou for taking the time to read a little more about me. My name is Craig and I'm a full-time professional musician, specialising in the piano. After spending four years studying at the Paul McCartney fame school, I left with my degree and went straight into performing at weddings and events. Since then I have literally played at thousands of events and have been fortunate enough to be asked to tour annually with The Four Tops, The Temptations, The Three Degrees, Tavares, Freda Payne and The platters to name but a few. If you have seen any of these acts at the O2 arena or any of the other large stadiums in the country, then you have already met me (although from a distance). I have many different options for your wedding or event which cover everything from solo piano, right up to a full band with DJ service. A few regularly chosen options are outlined here: Solo Piano Piano with Vocals Piano Duo with your choice of Upright Bass, Saxophone, Jazz guitar, Drums, Female vocals, Percussion Various band options from 3 piece upwards (including Jazz/Swing, Pop/Classics, RnB/Soul/Motown, Dance/House, Retro/Vintage) I specialise in tailoring my options exactly to your requirements and theme. This comes from a vast experience in weddings and events. I am also the musical director for the large Christmas events at Tatton Park, Aintree Racecourse and the ICC Birmingham so you may have experienced my work at these venues already. If you have any questions, please ask. Whatever ideas you have I promise to come up with a musical solution to create your perfect day/evening. For those looking to book me as a musician or MD for a project then my main instruments are Piano/Keyboards, Drums, Bass, Vocals (Composition and recording services are also available).

We saw a video of Craig performing a set online and knew we had to have him at our wedding... we got in touch with him and straight away he replied - he was so down to Earth, responsive, welcoming, professional, and understood everything we wanted at our Big Day. Because of how good Craig was we decided we wanted him playing at the most important point - the ceremony. We chose 6 songs and Craig offered us professional advice on where to place the songs and in which order - this made our ceremony one to remember as his professional advice was correct and the positioning of the songs had the perfect impact when it was needed. I requested that I wanted to walk down the isle to an original piece of music and Craig kindly offered to play this through his system which was another thing we didn’t need to worry about. All of this was communicated by email - again Craig was very good at replying. Craig contacted us and set in Stone the plans for our wedding a few days before telling us exactly what he would be doing and asked us if we would like anything done differently to what his plan was... it was the perfect plan. Craig arrived in ample amount of time before the ceremony allowing his set up to be smooth and introducing himself to my husband and family. In person Craig was professional, friendly and easy to talk to. The ceremony was amazing, the comments from the guests were outstanding and we knew we had made the best decision booking Craig and not only for the ceremony but for another 1 hour and 30 minutes for the celebration drinks afterwards! After the ceremony Craig moved his set to another location where our guests were having celebration drinks - for this set Craig played a mixture of songs which we sent to him prior to the wedding. Again this set was outstanding and the guests couldn’t believe the amount of different genres Craig played throughout. All of the comments we had received about Craig made our day extra special and one to remember. If you want to make a special occasion extra overwhelming then Craig is the man for it - amazing. Thank you so much for everything you did for us Craig. It was the best day ever and you are responsible for helping that happen. Ellen & Dale xxx

Craig, we loved every time we met with you, you are such a warm fun person. From meeting you at Arley Hall when we knew straight away you were going to perfect for our wedding breakfast. Your jazzy romantic style is so modern yet classic and right up our and a lot of our friends and families street! We enjoyed meeting with you just before our wedding and on the day it was such a pleasure - you were a true highlight of our day. We hope to come and see you perform at The Grill on the Square sometime and enjoy your music all over again. Thank you for all your hard work and wonderful music - including all the dedications and requests we gave you. James & Laura x
