My party was small-only 30 people but they all felt we treated them extra special by having Brian sing for our party. Brian is not only a pleasure to meet - he is very talented and we all felt like we made a new friend as he is personable; played anyone's request and touched all of our hearts. He really made our party into a special event! His performance was excellent-he was fun, charming and I would hire him again. One regret-I later listened to his own songs and wish I would have requested his orginal music which I listened to on line. Thank you, Brian for a party we will never forget!

Over the years I have played in many bands as a keyboard player. I have played countless venues, and always loved the comradery of being in a band, but they rarely let me sing, and getting the band to learn more than 50 or 60 songs to put on our set list was a battle. In 2008 I made the best decision of my life to become a solo act. Now I can sing, and adding new songs is at my discretion. In the last five years, my song list has become extensive, and diverse, and is always growing. I love being able to take requests--in fact it's easier for me when you choose. Playing the keyboard gives me the ability to add guitars, bass, drums, strings, horns, and piano to my sound, so if you have a picture of a guy sitting there just playing a piano and singing--you're right! Just remember that I am also able to reproduce the sound of a full band. I have been hired to play not only a wedding ceremony, but also the cocktail hour, and reception. Oh yes, I also play a lot of private parties!
With all that said, if you have a piano in your home just waiting to be played, I will definitely oblige you--as long as it's tuned. I will always favor playing an acoustic piano over all the bells and whistles of a keyboard.
I have performed at private parties, weddings, anniversaries, stadiums, outdoor concerts, and countless piano bars during my career as an entertainer. Believe it or not, I have even given a private concert for two people for their wedding anniversary. So, whether you prefer piano music, or a full band sound, I will create an awesome musical experience for your event. Most people prefer a show where guests can get involved by singing along or having some sort of song participation--trust me, if you have never seen a piano show where a friend, or group get's roasted on a birthday or celebration, get ready to have a lot of laughter in the room. Getting people involved is my specialty! It's all up to you--it's your event.
There are several music samples on my press kit for you to get a very good reference of what I will sound like live. There are many songs to choose from on my list, but you are not limited to that. I will always take song requests, or learn special music for you at your request. You can also hear what some of my past clients have to say about me in the client feedback section.
I love to travel, so please don't hesitate to consider me for events that are not local.
NOTE: When requesting a bid from me, please include as many details of the event and what services you need. The more details you give me, the better estimate I can give you. If you prefer, you can also just say in your notes: call me, and I will get right back to you.
