I sightread/busk and jazz. Piano/keyboards is my main instrument. i have a grand piano shell and Bose sound.
After leaving college I worked as a house pianist for DeVere hotels for 15 years. I was MD of Leeds Male Voice Choir for around 7 years. As MD for "John Danbury Presents" I have played for many west end stars in cabaret settings around Yorkshire and beyond. Some of my arrangements for bands have been broadcast on BBC Radio 2. I have a vast catalogue of songs along with years of experience of playing for weddings. I have a grand piano shell, which makes an electric piano look like a grand, along with a Bose column speaker system. I can provide a microphone for announcements if needed, and also facility to play tracks from an ipad etc. I have been house pianist for Leeds Mumtaz restaurant, where I added Bollywood songs to my repertoire. I have played for Shilpa Shetty, James Khan and many other famous Asian clients. I am happy to work with you to make your event special.
