The Metropolitans use as state of the art Roland rhythm machine to provide a background to the piano for jazz, and to the piano and keyboards for rock and dancing. The music we offer ranges from easy listening which is great for receptions, cocktail hours, dinner and the like, to great dance songs that will be well known by your guests. Eric has experience in working with audiences of all ages, crowd size, in doors and out for intimate as well as large settings. He enjoys his craft and will work with you in terms of announcements, serving as an MC for an event, and will work to honor request songs to make the event special for you. The Metropolitans include a keyboard player who is an established male vocalist, so you will not have to spend extra to obtain a band with vocal ability. However, we can play also instrumentals only as the event requires such as an evening of jazz piano, or jazz piano and jazz vocals. Additionally, players can be added upon request.
