My public and private performances range from solo spots, via duo, trio and quartet to five piece band, and from formal concerts to background music.
I choose songs or instrumentals especially for each occasion and the material varies from full-on jazz improvisation to easy listening classics, nostalgic memories or recent chart songs.
And, if it’s a band gig, I create an ensemble of fabulous musicians to join me in making sure your event goes with a swing. I also work as a guest vocalist with other bands when invited to do so.
There’s a list of repertoire here. It’s pretty up to date, but I learn new songs constantly, so if there’s something not on there that I don’t sing and you think I should – tell me!
There are some soundclips here:
Typical length of performance ranges from a single set to up to three 45 minute spots.
I’m happy compering and fronting my own and other people’s events. I aim to be professional, practical and helpful in every way I can.
I am a fully insured member of the Musicians Union. I have a PAT tested PA system and full size stage piano. I can provide recorded background music in band breaks if required.
I’m a former journalist, PR person, and project manager, so I’m pretty good at writing press releases, designing posters and making sure things get done as promised. I want to make sure you are pleased with what I do and book me again. But I’m also old-fashioned enough to care about doing a good job, simply because I think that’s important in itself.
