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 was sensational. Before our event he kept in contact to make sure he had times date location and contact information. On day of event he was fabulous. He had a room full of adults & children singing to his wonderful music. He has a vast repertiore of music from jazz to classics to rock and hip hop. All our guests commented on how wonderful he played. Thanks JD! We look forward to having you play at future celebrations.

JD played at our company Holiday Party again this year as he has for many years in and he was even more wonderful than before. Not only did he play both Christmas songs and jazz and pop standards but he played for an extra hour and a half because folks were having such a good time! He also played recorded songs whenever he took a break so there was continuous wall-to-wall music. We thought this was a wonderful touch to an already sparkling evening. We can't recommend JD Sebastian too highly! Believe me, you won't be disappointed. Bravo JD!

JD Sebastian - Jazz, Standards & Broadway Pianist!’s Response:

Fantastic! I’m so glad to see your positive feedback! I had a wonderful time with you all, as well. Thank you for your kind, encouraging words, and thanks for mentioning the “wall to wall” music I am now providing. It is a thrill for me to be able to play certain key songs as a DJ would, playing back the original recording rather than a piano nstrumental, every now and then, such as Bing Crosby’s Hawaiian Christmas Song. Your inspired feedback has inspired this minstrel even further: thank you! And a very merry Christmas to you and all of the families of NTC in Glendale, California!

He was very professional and was excellent on the piano. He really made our speakeasy feel like a true speakeasy. Thank you for making it a memorable night!
