Performing as a Wedding Pianist in Northamptonshire

My name is Eugene Portman and I visit Northamptonshire on a regular basis as a wedding pianist. The county has a very varied range of venues that host a great variety of events throughout the year. These venues range from pubs and country estates such as the Althorpe Estate to modern hotels and golf clubs. Furthermore, I have played the piano at many of Northamptonshire’s venues for many weddings and events. I’m that I’ll be doing a lot more in the future.

The Music

Being a pianist for weddings in Northamptonshire means that I have to be versatile and play many styles of music. This is because different styles of music are often required for the various parts of the wedding day. For example, classical music is often the preferred choice for ceremonies, whereas jazz is definitely the in-thing for drinks receptions. Also, the wedding breakfast requires a different style of music from the evening reception. Luckily I do perform many styles of music and these include pop, rock, Latin, blues, classical, and even singalong.

Being a Singalong Pianist in Northamptonshire

There has been a recent trend in Northamptonshire to book me as a sing-along pianist for weddings. This has quickly become something that I really enjoy and I always look forward to my next sing-along event. Although I have played this genre of music for weddings, it is usually informal events that require this music. For example Wartime celebrations, Peaky Blinders evenings, and Cockney nights.

When I perform for a singalong event, I provide all song sheets and dress like a typical Cockney pianist. This consists of a Bowler hat, waistcoat, grandad shirt, pocket watch, etc.

The Line-Ups

Most of the weddings I do in Northamptonshire require me as a solo pianist, but I can provide much more than this. Some weddings require more than solo pianist and I can provide a full range of line-ups from duos 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.
