About Peter

Singing pianist
London
Peter is a jazz vocalist and pianist in a lively, vibrant swinging classic style.

I'm a jazz and swing singer-pianist, solo and with my own trio. I began with a great love of classical music, and now do jazz - I love performing live, whether for dinner jazz, or in an onstage setting.

Performance details
I have my own portable piano/keyboard
I own a PA system

We were really happy with Peter's performance on the night and dealing with him and Encore was easy and stress free. Thank you.

I had a birthday party and Peter with his jazz styled piano and singing provided the perfect mood for the occasion. My birthday was in my house, in a large living room. Peter kicked-off the afternoon with some melodies while people arrived and exchange greetings. He then changed melodies (and volume) through the evening, according to the mood and how it picked-up. He did 'three sets" and the last one was most lively and with great signing. This really worked. He really knows how to read the room and I got so many compliments from my guests. Indeed, one of my guests is planning to book Peter also for his own special birthday next year. Lastly but not least, Peter and I exchanged a few e-mails in lead up to the event. I provided him a brief of what different guests might enjoy hearing, details about the 'venue', how many were coming, and what type of piano I had. He in turn was super flexible, even had a few Italian songs for my Italian guests, plus happy to come along and play my piano, or if I preferred, bring his own keyboard. He also has extra speakers with him ...which I thought we did not need...but yes we did :-) I now know that he also can come with his trio or with another musician such as a guitarist. In my venue I did not have the space to have them both but I warmly recommend booking Peter as a solo or with a bigger set-up. He is a true pro.

TBH I didn't expect this experience with Peter trio. Even though I've spoke with Peter about the special xmas event is for 300+ he brought only 2 very small speakers. Lack punctuality of start and finished just on time. Unfortunately I wouldn't recommend them.
