Greetings! Looking for something fun and exciting? Look no further. I am a Detroit-area-based pianist/vocalist with 20 years of performance experience. Proficient in number of different musical styles, I specialize in creating the perfect atmosphere and environment for your particular event. Jazz, swing, blues, R&B, soul, rock, contemporary; I play 'em all...and more! Adaptable and accessible, I mold to the situation at hand while providing my own unique stamp to make your event unforgettable. With options including anything from solo and duo performances to a full four to six-piece band, I have your needs covered. Whether you're looking for a low-key addition to a classy cocktail hour or a full-on jumpin' and jivin' dance party to ensue, I can provide the appropriate setting for any size space and budget.
Looking for music for a wedding? Let a solo pianist play as your guests arrive and then deliver the perfect song as the bride walks down the aisle. A second and/or third piece is added for the cocktail and dinner hours and a full band kicks it up a few notches as dancing and drinks round out the night. Complete with emcee services!
Station a pianist and saxophonist in a quiet corner at you next anniversary or holiday party or put a full band front and center at a backyard BBQ. Whatever you're vision may be, we'll bring it to life. Your one-stop shop!
And let's not forget about customer service! As a professional, it's a big part of my job to make things smooth, easy and "head-ache free" for you and those involved with your event. Tip-top service is what you'll get when dealing with me and my staff of musicians. Expect nothing less!
"Jarrod was such a great addition to our small wedding reception held in Ann Arbor! We received tons of positive feedback during the event regarding his playing. He was extremely professional and accommodating, even learning a requested song beforehand for our "first dance". He was and needed almost no direction from us - clearly a professional, experienced performer. Thank you so much, Jarrod! It was exactly what we were hoping for! =)"

"Jarrod was an absolute pleasure to work with! He played music for our ceremony, cocktail hour, and entire reception! He did not need any direction during on our Big Day, he is a true professional and knew exactly where to be and what to play! Jarrod put together a jazz quartet for our reception and it was absolutely perfect! They played great music and all of our guests raved about it! Whether you are looking for background cocktail music, or getting people onto the dance floor, you will not be disappointed. We wanted jazz, New Orleans style blues/jazz and that's exactly what we got! I still have several of the songs he played stuck in my head! If you are looking for a jazz musician to play fun upbeat music for your event - this is it! Thank you Jarrod!"

"Jarrod played piano and (sang) for a 40th birthday party we hosted. He was very professional, prompt, courteous, and did a nice job of reading the crowd. He played a variety of classics from Frank Sinatra to Motown. We had many guests comment that Jarrod did a great job, and what a nice touch it was to the party. I would definitely hire him again for another event. Thanks so much!"
