Loved having John play at my wedding! He was easy-going, happy to play and work with whatever I wanted as well as give good suggestions of his own. Everyone really enjoyed his playing - especially the lovely piece he played for the signing of the register (which was his own recommendation). He’s an engaging and fun presence on stage, and a really great pianist. I’d definitely recommend him to anyone else looking for a wedding musician!

We got married last year- Johnny was fantastic playing piano at our wedding. So many guests commented on how nice his piano was: it really made the event perfect and was exactly what we needed, adding a really nice environment. He was also so professional throughout. We would definitely recommend him for your event, whether a wedding or other occasion

Customer questions

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

I will do my very best to be flexible to ensure your event runs smoothly. If timings change slightly in the run up to the event let me know as soon as you can.

Are you able to bring your own piano or keyboard?

I have a keyboard that I bring can bring out to gigs if there is no piano available at the venue.

Can you learn song requests before the event?

Absolutely! Depending on the difficulty of the song I may charge up to £30 to cover practise time. This can be discussed and decided upon before booking.
