Thank you for reviewing my bio. I hope to meet you soon and help make your event fabulous and memorable by sharing the gift that flows from within me. I play with passion and joy, and with sensitivity to the flow and pulse of the room, adjusting song selections, volume, tempo, striving to compliment and uplift, always with a touch of class! I am based in the Hollywood/West Hollywood area and can travel throughout the Greater Los Angeles area.

I am an award-winning jazz pianist with over a thousand songs in repertoire, specializing on Standards (Frank Sinatra, Ella Fitzgerald, Barbara Streisand, Elton John, etc.) Musicals (George Gershwin, Cole Porter, Stephen Sondheim, Andrew Lloyd Webber, etc.), Thirty years of playing piano for restaurants (ambiance), private parties (festive, often with singers, professional or attendees who want to sing), weddings, bar mitzvahs, holiday parties, commanding performance for a "Gloriously Gershwin" concert tour featuring custom personalized performance of Rhapsody in Blue and providing accompaniment for ensemble of vocal soloists and dancers.

Super friendly and personable, always inviting requests, which is how JD's musical repertoire evolved over 30 years of pleasing crowds while passionately enjoying each song, himself.

If no piano is available I can advise you of acoustic piano rentals in your area, or come with one of my full size, electric pianos which nicely emulate the sound of an acoustic piano (My current models are the Yamaha Motif and the Roland FP) with quality sound.

JD, you were fantastic! We're so glad we found you. Your talent and energy made the party really sing (pun intended)! It’s hard to believe that you knew EVERY song people requested without using any sheet music. Maybe its because I don't play piano but I can't imagine how anyone holds that much music in their head. You really were the life of the party! Thank you so much for a wonderful afternoon of memory-making with all my friends! It was a day we won’t soon forget!

It's seldom that I rate someone at the top of the scale in multiple categories but JD Sebastian deserves that rating in all 5 of these categories. He has played previously at our company's Christmas parties and everyone loved him, so we decided to hire him for an awards reception and he knocked it out of the park. He arrived early, was VERY accommodating to requests and there was not a single one that he could not fulfill! His jazz and popular piano style is energetic and he was very engaged with the audience. We'll definitely be hiring him again this year for Christmas and I highly recommend him if you're looking for a talented and reliable pianist.

Thank you for your kind words! It was my pleasure to "tickle the ivory" for your company's awards reception event. Always a joy to be with you all. I can hardly wait to share this year's expanded holiday music repertoire with you in December, it will be better than ever!
