Piano Keys

Performing as a Wedding Pianist in Lincolnshire

My name is Eugene Portman and Norfolk gives me plenty of work as a wedding pianist. The area is popular for weddings and I think that this is because there is such a range of venues to choose from. These venues range from wonderful country pubs and country house hotels to modern restaurants and luxury hotels. In fact, I have played the piano in many of Norfolk’s venues for weddings and other events. Furthermore, I’m looking forward to my next visit which I hope will be soon.

The Music

As I’ve already mentioned, much of the work I do in Lincolnshire is as a wedding pianist. To be successful at this I have to embrace a variety of music styles. To explain, I have to be able to play different styles of music for the various parts of the day. For instance, classical music seems to be a favourite for ceremonies, whereas jazz seems to be a regular choice for drinks receptions. Also, most couples would require two contrasting styles of music for the wedding breakfast and the evening reception.

Being a Sing-along Pianist in Lincolnshire

A recent trend in Norfolk has provided me with an influx of events as a sing-along pianist and a few of these have been weddings. However, most of these bookings have been for informal parties and themed events. When I perform at a sing-along event I provide all the song sheets and I dress like an old fashioned pub pianist. The latter consists of a Bowler hat, waistcoat, grandad shirt, pocket watch, neckerchief, etc.

The Line-ups

Nearly every wedding I do in Lincolnshire are as a solo painist, but I do other line-ups as well. These line-ups range from duos and trios right up to a five piece jazz band. The full range of line-ups are as follows:

  • 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 so that I can help you choose a line-up that will match both your budget and available space at the venue.
