Performing as a Wedding Pianist in Cambridgeshire
My name is Eugene Portman and my work as a wedding pianist in Cambridgeshire takes me to some lovely places. Furthermore, region boasts a wide range of venues from lovely country pubs and country house hotels to trendy cafes and modern luxury hotels. These venues host a variety of events, but most of my work comes from weddings.
My work as a wedding pianist in the Cambridgeshire area demands versatility. To explain, I am often expected to play different styles of music for each part of the day. For instance, classical music seems to be the favourite choice for ceremonies while jazz is often requested for drinks receptions. Also, the wedding meal would require a totally different style of music compared to the music for an evening reception. Fortunately, I play many different styles of music including blues, jazz, classical, pop, rock, and sing-along.
Being a Singalong Pianist in Cambridgeshire
I have recently noticed a trend in the Cambridgeshire area to hire me as a sing-along pianist for weddings. This has quickly become something that I really enjoy. Although I have performed this music for weddings it is more popular for informal occasions such as parties and Wartime celebrations. When I perform at a sing-along event I provide all the song sheets and I dress like an old-time Cockney pianist. This consists of a bowler hat, waistcoat, grandad shirt, pocket watch, neckerchief, etc.
Most of the bookings I take in the Cambridgeshire area are for me as a solo wedding pianist. However, I can provide other line-ups which range from duos and trios right up to a five piece jazz band. Here is a list of all the line-ups I offer:
- Duo – piano and vocals or piano and bass
- Trio – piano, bass and vocals or piano, bass and drums
- Quartet – piano, bass, drums and vocals or piano, bass, drums and sax
- Five Piece Jazz Band – piano, bass, drums, sax and vocals
Please contact me to find a line-up that will fit your budget and available space at the venue.
