About Jonathan

Pianist
Kenley
Public liability insurance of £5 million
An experienced and versatile pianist for events and parties, with a wide musical repertoire. Jonathan adapts his playing to the event.

Jonathan has played at many prestigious venues including Claridges, The Dorchester, The Landmark, The Ivy, Hever Castle and twice at Buckingham Palace (for Royal Household parties). Experienced at playing for wedding ceremonies & receptions, he is also comfortable playing for private house parties, and has played in situations as diverse as Thames river boats (The Silver Barracuda), trade conferences, sports clubs and corporate networking events. With a range of genres from classical to jazz, pop to blues, ragtime to rock, Jonathan can adapt to the needs of the event - from gentle background music for dinner to a lively upbeat for celebratory receptions. For a wedding ceremony he will prepare the requested songs if not already in his repertoire. He studied music at Goldsmiths, University of London and specialised in jazz performance and composition for his BMus degree. Jonathan is happy to discuss playing piano for your event.

Thank you very much for playing at Olugbenga & Alice’s wedding reception in London last Saturday. Allow me to express my thanks for rendering the evening so special. It was exactly what I had hoped for. Both the newly-weds and the guests all enjoyed your music performance. I wish you more successful engagements.
