"Thank you again for playing so beautifully at our wedding. All theguests agreed that your music and performance made the evening trul special and added an even greater depth and warmth to the occasion. It would not have been the same without you. We would be delighted to provide a direct recommendation or reference if this would ever be useful.

Over the last twenty-five years I have played for almost any kind of party I can think of as a solo pianist. Sometimes if playing for a serious occasion, I put on my best bib and tucker and emphasise the wistful strains of Scott Joplin and the elegant songs of George Gershwin. Where the mood is more joyous and up-beat I will don a stripy blazer and go to the jazzier end of my repertoire, playing some of those infectious tunes of Fats Waller, Louis Armstrong and numerous other composers from Jazz' Golden Age.
After playing for many years, I have developed my swinging left hand to the extent that I am one of the few masters of the Stride Piano school of jazz, and this makes it possible for me to infuse any party with a musical joy that is both easy to converse to but guaranteed to lift the mood of everyone present.
And of course, if there is no piano available at the venue, I can call upon the services of one of today's excellent electric alternatives.
