"With over twenty years experience in live performance, I have entertained at many private and corporate events throughout the country, ranging from weddings, parties and club PA's to large scale functions at hotels, theatres and stadiums.
When performing - be it solo, with a live band or simply a pianist, I encompass a whole host of genres ranging from laid back lounge and jazz to pop and full on party music.
A duo is a popular choice for clients with smaller budgets or where more intimate venues are concerned, whilst still maintaining a live, acoustic sound without having to accomodate a large band. No job is too small and we are the perfect backdrop for any bespoke bar, restaurant, private party or funeral service.
When booked for a wedding or civil ceremony, I appreciate that it is the most important day of your life and should be one to remember forever. Whilst you and your spouse are in the hands of the photographer, I can keep your guests entertained by performing a tasteful selection of background lounge music or contemporary ballads to subtly enhance the ambience. I can also perform during the ceremony or wedding breakfast if required.
I provide my own PA, lighting and instruments, therefore no additional equipment is required. However, my pianist will happily play your own piano should you wish. I also have access to a large network of the north west's finest musicians, which allows me to tailor specific entertainment packages to suit all budgets. This can literally be anything from a compact 3-piece band to a full orchestra complete with string section!
(All my equipment is PAT tested and I am fully covered with public liability insurance for up to £10,000,000 with the musicians union.)
