Piano Keys - Wedding Pianist Cheshire

Performing as a Wedding Pianist in Cheshire

My name is Eugene Portman and Cheshire provides me with an adequate supply of work as a wedding pianist. This because the county has a vast choice of venues for anyone organising a wedding or other event. These venues range from lovely country pubs to trendy restaurants and modern hotels. I mostly play the piano for weddings, but Cheshire also gives me many other types of events to play for.

The Music

I perform a lot at weddings and Cheshire is a constant source of work for me as a wedding pianist. Versatility is of paramount importance when it comes to providing music for weddings. This because I often have to play a different style of music for each part of the day. For instance, classical music is very popular for ceremonies, while jazz tends to be the in-thing for drinks receptions. Also, a wedding breakfast would require a different style of music from an evening reception. Luckily, I play many different styles of music including pop, rock, Latin, classical, and even sing-along.

Being a Singalong Pianist in Cheshire

There has definitely been a increasing trend to book me in the Cheshire area as a sing-along pianist. Moreover, this has become something that I really enjoy and I always look forward to my next sing-along event. This sort of thing really suits informal occasions like birthday parties. However, sometimes even formal event such as weddings feature a sing-along at some point. Just for your information I provide all the song sheets and I dress as a typical old fashioned pianist would. This consists of a Bowler hat, waistcoat, pocket watch, neckerchief, grandad shirt, etc.

Please see the sing-a-long page or visit for more information about this.

The Line-Ups

Most of the events that I do in Cheshire are as a solo pianist, but occasionally a bigger line-up is required. I do provide bigger line-ups and these range from duo 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.
