About David

David brings the taste of London's great jazz and cabaret venues to your event with his inimitable poise and personality.
David Vaughan's profile picture
Singing pianist

With decades of musical experience to his name, David Vaughan brings a wealth of talent and professionalism to every performance. Having trained initially at the Royal College of Music, David went on to develop his skills firstly as a pianist and keyboard player in jazz, rock and pop, and more latterly as a singer. David has performed in choirs, symphony orchestras, big bands and combos, but it is more recently that he has touched the high points of his career with performances singing at the piano at major London venues such as the famous Pizza Express cabaret venue The Pheasantry in Chelsea, as well as long-standing London jazz venues such as The Bull's Head in Barnes and Oliver's Jazz Bar in Greenwich. He has released two records of his own music but is equally at home with classics from the American jazz songbook which form the backbone of his current solo act.

Brilliant! This was not a normal gig. I was looking for someone to deliver three Tom Lehrer songs to a quasi stag night for neo-geriatrics in preparation for the civil partnership of a close friend following a 40 year engagement. An early evening venue was arranged and rearranged in a pub with a music licence. David took all of this in his stride. The Tom Lehrer songs were not in David’s repertoire but he worked them up and e delivered them with aplomb. It was not a large audience. I think David was surprised to have us joining in with such gusto. He was and is brilliant. He made the evening and provided that memories that will stay with us to the grave. I would have no reservations about booking David again. Whether he would accept another booking from me is another matter. Thank you David.9

David put on a great show when he supported us at The Troubadour. He has real stage presence, a unique voice, and can really interact with his audience. A very professional, easy-going guy.

We were really pleased to have David perform as part of our 150th anniversary celebrations at Malden Golf Club. His set of classic jazz numbers went down a treat, a real talent! Very friendly and professional too.
