Rob’s beautiful music really made our wedding ceremony in November. He played acoustic guitar as I walked down the aisle with my Dad and sung us into the church and a really moving piano version of one of mine and my husband’s favourite songs as we signed the register. Finally, he led the whole congregation in a rousing rendition of Elbow’s one day like this as we left the church – it was a highlight of the day and brought something really unique to our special day.

Rob played our wedding last year and it was wonderful, especially when he played as I walked down the aisle. He kept everyone entertained during the afternoon, playing some old favourites as well as some awesome crowd pleasers. Thanks Rob, you were great!

Customer questions

What do your clients love most about your performances?

Clients love my high energy and I always get comments about how people love how much I'm enjoying myself!

I have performed at countless wedding venues with my band, and played solo for many ceremonies/drinks receptions. I also regularly play local clubs and pubs and performed on the piano for a period at The Piano Works in London's West End.

I have been influenced by such a wide range of artists from the Beatles, David Bowie to Taylor Swift, Backstreet Boys. I love any music that makes people feel emotions!

I have performed in London's West End at the Piano Works and performed as part of an ensemble with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra.

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

Yes definitely! You can send across a playlist of your choosing or I have a wide range of popular music I can play.

How much time do you need to set up?

Small PA I can set up within half an hour, larger PA up to an hour.

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

My set lists are crafted from countless performances and learning what works best for the occasion, but I'm happy to discuss through song choices and let you choose your favourites from my list.

Yes absolutely, I am completely self contained, for small events I can even set up with fully battery powered equipment so don't need to be placed near a socket, perfect for drinks receptions.

If a song isn't already in my set list I would be happy to discuss learning it for you, get in touch to request pricing for song requests.
