Based in Shrewsbury, Shropshire. I am available nationwide to play the piano, providing your cherished event with the perfect musical ambience.
Experience gained from 20 years of playing for Weddings, Birthdays, Anniversaries, Balls, Restaurant venues, indeed all sorts of events, means that I know how to use the piano to create just the right ambience for you and your guests.
From beautiful flowing romantic classics, to toe tapping jazz, and popular hits from Adele to The Zombies, with all sorts of genres in between, including Bollywood, my reportoire is ever increasing and is sensitively played for you and your valued guests.
Specific wedding ceremony requests are very welcome regardless of the genre, and should you require help in choosing, my experience and knowledge can ensure your ceremony hits the right note!

Covid Update - As a solo background performer, I would be an ideal source of live music, especially for restricted guest numbers. I am very aware and respectful of the Government narrative with regard to prevention of further virus spread.
"..anyway, the consensus for the evening was that it was the best christmas festive board ever, and Mike and I thank you so much for the huge part you played in making it such a success..."
"....Steve played at our wedding ceremony and reception at The Albright Hussey. He was superb. Great to work with and an excellent pianist. We would highly recommend...."
For venues that don't have a real instrument or it's not suitably located, I have all the necessary equipment which includes discrete sound equipment and a portable, lightweight white grand piano.
I can usually set up in under 20 minutes and I have a second setup with a more compact stand that can be used for minimal turnaround.
