Customer questions

What do your clients love most about your performances?

Wide range of musical genres, appealing to different age-groups. Playing appropriately to the mood and setting, paying attention to this dynamically through the event.

Which venues have you performed at in the past?

Royal Albert Hall Notre Dame Cathedral 606 Club Cliveden Country House Stoke Park and many more

Which artists have you been most influenced by?

Sting/The Police Elton John Bill Evans Oscar Peterson Beethoven Debussy

What is the most high profile gig you've performed?

Lady Diana Spencer

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

We always try our best to be flexible to help ensure your event runs as smoothly as possible. If timings change slightly in the run up to the event just let us know.

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

Absolutely. This is a really popular request and we actually offer this service for free. If you'd like a DJ service via our PA after the final set until the venue closes, we provide this for an additional £100.

How much time do you need to set up?

We usually set up about 1 to 1.5 hours before the performance time. As soon as our PA is set up we can provide a free playlist service to help set the atmosphere and get your guests ready for our live performance!

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

Yes, of course - as long as the piano is in working order and in tune, then I'm happy to play on it!

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

Absolutely, you can take as much or as little control of the set list as you wish. We're happy to chat through and make sure we find what works for your event in advance, and can even take requests on the day - we’re used to guests coming up with ideas!

Are you able to bring your own piano or keyboard?

Yes, absolutely! I choose from my collection of keyboards whichever will suit the venue and event, sometimes bringing two if there are different areas for the music to be performed in, to minimise disruption in moving equipment.

Can you learn song requests before the event?

There are so many great songs, my lists on this site are just representative examples - as an experienced jazz/cocktail lounge pianist I am used to taking requests and playing by ear as requested. If you do know beforehand that there is a particular tune you would like however, then advance notice would be preferable, just in case I’ve not heard it before!

Thanks so much for playing for my wife’s birthday party - you set the mood just right. It was particularly kind of you to allow her to sing with you - she loved it! Several guests were also very complimentary, and asked us to pass on their thanks too.

Wonderful afternoon tea party with music from Louis and his trio! Such a versatile pianist, could play anything that we requested, something for all the different age groups of my guests. Really made my 40th a special and memorable occasion!
