About Fin Henderson

Hire me if you want a singing pianist for any occasion. Adaptable and flexible to ensure you get exactly what you need for your gig!
Pianist
London
Public liability insurance of £2 million

Hi! My name is Fin. Hire me if you want a Pianist singer or a professional level saxophonist. I've always had a love for music and I'd love to share that with you by making your event that bit better. Yorkshire born but been living in London for about a year now. Played the piano as long as I can remember. My love for music is the love of the experiences and people that come through the lifestyle. Alongside my 'artist' project I have enjoyed doing function gigs for the last 4-5 years now! It's been great to have ranged from supporting Laura Mvula, playing for Jamie Cullum and Michael Parkinson to playing to empty pubs in the middle of Sheffield! I've played weddings up north, I've played in restaurants and bars down south. I've even done bingo nights where instead of numbers you had to cross off songs as they were played in segments! The whole hog really. When I'm not doing function work I am in the studio writing and recording with artists across the board. I am hard working and when it comes to your event I'll make sure to cater to whatever best fits the gig, however I think I am best served playing classic tunes from the last century with a microphone and a piano. I like to think of myself as a bit of a human jukebox as I have learnt so many tunes over the years, they're all knocking around in my head somewhere! I also play the saxophone and used to lead a swing band, including a tour we did across Europe!! Get in contact if you have any questions at all and I look forward to working with you! Thank you

Customer questions

What do your clients love most about your performances?

I would hope how thoroughly I do the job in front of me! I'll always muck in and mingle with guests where appropriate. I like to think I put the event organisers at ease and allow them one element of the day that won't be stressful!

Which venues have you performed at in the past?

All across the UK, in LA and around Europe!

Which artists have you been most influenced by?

I listen to things across the board. I am quite classic in loving the lyrical genius of Bob Dylan works, but then I love the fun of Bruno Mars songs. Anything that makes people feel something.

What is the most high profile gig you've performed?

I've supported Laura Mvula on her tour, I've played to Jamie Cullum and to Michael Parkinson, I've had songs on Radio 1!

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

No problem. Just please let me know as soon as possible and we'll make it work.

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

Yes sure! Especially great if you'd like to send a list of songs you'd love to hear in the breaks.

How much time do you need to set up?

Probably 30 minutes all in all. As soon as the PA is set up I can also provide a free playlist service to help set the atmosphere.

If I have a piano at my venue, are you happy to perform on that?

I would much rather play on the piano if there is one available!

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

Yes! Of course.

Are you able to bring your own piano or keyboard?

Yes, as mentioned above, it's great if there is a piano on site - however, if not, no problem, I can bring everything I would need.

Can you learn song requests before the event?

Yes absolutely. I love to do that. Just send them my way. If there's a few there might be a charge for the hours spent learning them. But one or two is no problem.

Reviews

From customers:

Janet, 3 years ago

Made the event what it was. Was very sociable and mixed in with all the guests at the event. Even learnt 4-5 songs we had requested before the day to make it that bit more personal. Thank you!

Sophie W, 4 years ago

Having Fin for our wedding was absolutely great. In a hectic schedule and complicated day Fin was so easy going and was happy to work in whatever way made it work for us with as little stress as possible. I also requested Songbird by Fleetwood Mac as I walked down the aisle as it was my favourite song as a child, and hearing this was a real cherry on top.
