Verified profile

I have been playing the piano for over 40 years and have played in venues from pubs to casinos. My career started in the 1970.s when I played in a band and also worked as a session musician at Sarm Studios. Now I just play piano throughout the U.K. Some of the more notable venues are Rendevouz Casino ,Old Park Lane , Berkeley Square Casino , Hanbury Manor , Downham Hall Hotel , Crowne Plaza Gerrards Cross and many more. Apart from playing solo I am also pianist with Cockney Rovers, London top knees up band. Happy to play your special request just let me know beforehand. I have a Korg digital piano plus amplification and can provide a microphone for announcements if needed.

Thank George for playing piano for my daughters wedding. You accompanied my grandaughter without any rehearsal which was much appreciated by all. Karen and Rob particularly enjoyed your Elton John set. Thanks again for your help in creating the perfect day.

Hi George thank you very much for playing piano at our wedding . Your choice of material for the pre dinner drinks created a great atmosphere. Your performance during the ceremony was perfecto. I would have no hesitation in recommending you.
