Lewis was fab! He was really easy to communicate with and very flexible. He learnt an extra piece of music that we really love and it was magic hearing it played as we walked down the aisle. I would thoroughly recommend him - a true talent and a lovely guy.

Lewis Bolland played the Grand Piano for my parents 50th Wedding Anniversary Dinner for a crowd of over 200 people. He brought the occasion to life with his elegant playing and diverse repertoire. Lewis read the room and the occasion beautifully and changed tempo to suit the various festivities that were going on through the evening. Lewis was the consummate professional in ensuring he anticipated the available instruments and ensured that they were in tune and ready to play on the day. He kept in constant communication and was very quick to respond to all my numerous questions. Despite having to travel quite a distance to the venue, Lewis was punctual to a fault and remained at all times discrete but made his presence felt through his beautiful music. Lastly, I can never thank Lewis enough for the kindness he showed to myself and my family in ensuring this very special day for my parents was made even more memorable by his presence and beauty of his playing. Would wholeheartedly recommend Lewis to anyone else who would like to avail themselves of his talent.

Customer questions

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

Please do not worry. Things like this happen often and all I ask is that you let me know of any time changes as soon as possible.

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

Unfortunately I do not offer this service.

How much time do you need to set up?

I usually take around 20 - 30 minutes to set my equipment up and have a quick warm up.

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

Of course! The piano must be in working order and be in tune for the best sound and performance from me. If you have any questions about what to ask your venue regarding the piano please let me know.

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

My set list is crafted from countless performances and learning what works best. However, I'm definitely happy to chat and make sure we find what works for your event.

Are you able to bring your own piano or keyboard?

Of course!

Can you learn song requests before the event?

I usually play a set collection of songs which has something for everyone. However, I'm always happy to learn new songs for events. This would be at a cost of £40 per song and as much notice as possible is needed for me to perfect your special requests.
