London based pianist with over 30 years of professional playing experience. I have an extensive repertoire of over 10,000 songs.
Just wanted to say thank you so much for saving the day on Sunday, stepping in when our booked pianist had to cancel due to illness, and for helping to ensure our birthday celebration was a success. Gilly you were amazing and everyone is saying how much they enjoyed it. The way you were able to play anything we asked for was wonderful.
Gilly is a great pianist who knows just about any tune you can name. She made our Christmas party very special and had everyone singing along to carols and songs. We will book her again next year.
We cannot thank Gilly enough for the wonderful accompaniment she provided to our wedding breakfast. Taking requests and all without sheet music Gilly was genuinely complimented by every table as we circulated the room. Her style perfectly added a sense of fun and warmth to our evening. We would highly recommend Gilly and are wondering when we might next need a pianist....!
In a word, 'Amazing'. Superbly talented with a jaw-dropping repertoire, we'd book Gilly Bean again in a heartbeat. Extremely professional, dependable, trust-worthy, communicative, punctual, warm and delightful to work with. A lot of stress averted and we can't thank her enough. Gilly was equally at home playing her own repertoire, guests' requests, and accompanying another live musician. We threw a lot of demands at Gilly, who delivered something unique, memorable and truly special. Exactly what we wanted.
I began playing the piano when I was four years old, and have now been playing for over 45 years. I began to play professionally in 1983, and have worked continuously ever since. I have perfect pitch, which allows me to hear songs and play them back instantly; a skill which has enabled me to build up a repertoire of over 10,000 songs in a variety of genres. I have a weekly residency at the Soho Piano Bar. I have many years of experience playing for functions such as weddings, parties and funerals. My extensive repertoire allows me to cater for your exact needs and create the perfect musical atmosphere for your event. I am always open to learning new material and tailoring the musical programme to suit your requirements perfectly. I also enjoy the role of resident pianist in the Healing Fields at Glastonbury Festival each year, and have a large social media following on the network Periscope, where I often broadcast live gigs and take song requests from followers.
You are now following Gilly Bean!
Thanks for the feedback, we really appreciate it.
