$100 - $250 per event
A well dressed, happy fella who will arrive early;flexible, courteous, a good communicator, willing to stay later than contracted, connects well with your guests, and someone to whom you will gladly give an enthusiastic review when all is done.

I play solo piano to add a touch of class to your party, corporate function, or wedding reception. I play Classic Standards, Show Tunes, and Modern Jazz. I can play MELLOW: (Misty, Over the Rainbow, Summertime, Send in the Clowns, Angel Eyes, Amazing Grace, Star,s Fell on Alabama, Rainy Days and Mondays, Moon River, All the Things You Are, When Sunny Gets Blue, Sinatra songs, etc.) or LIVELY and UPBEAT (Lady is a Tramp, Satin Doll, Teach Me Tonight, Moanin',There Will Never Be Another You, and Modern Jazz Blues). I often receive compliments on the warmth of my chord-voicings. If you reside within 20 miles of Hillsboro Village, I will AUDITION for you at no charge. My Fees are MODEST: $100 minimum. Request a playlist and a quote today!

I am retired from senior administrative positions in educational and arts institutions in the North and Canada, followed by a management consulting career. I cannot learn to read music as my ears have "a much faster processor" than my eyes, so, much as I adore it, I cannot play classical pieces (although I did perform for the Chicago Symphony Orchestra. Ask me about that!) I started playing professionally in a Coffee House (remember them?) while a student at Brown University and have played in restaurants, lounges, and many private parties since that time. I can no longer sing, and in Nashville that is a requirement to work in restaurants and lounges, so I have jumped into the niche of Party Pianist, where one does not want the distraction of singing. As I am just starting this business, I have very low fees -- probably the lowest in town for what I do. I love to play for people, but am not trying to support myself in this manner. I am an enthusiastic (and relatively accomplished) photographer, tennis, golf and bridge player, and enjoy gardening and the life of the mind. I read scripture, usher, play the piano,and greet at St. Georges Episcopal Church.

Doug was excellent to work with. He played at our company's 25th anniversary party/open house and it was a great addition to the evening. He gave the event a new level of sense of "occasion" that was very special. The communication was easy, and he was professional and punctual. We appreciate him doing our smaller scale event.

Doug was very professional. He was well dressed and arrived on time and played the piano even longer than we had agreed. I would highly recommend Doug and Lizard Lounge for your next event!
