Bill Forrest is an extremely versatile pianist and vocalist whose scope ranges from classical to standards to modern rock. Performing with a passion that comes from his love of the music, his joy is passed on to the listener.

Offering a repertoire of more than 900 selections from memory, Bill plays with all of the rhythm, refinement and intricacy of an entire ensemble. Unlike other soloists, he doesn't rely on pre-recorded tracks to keep the audience engaged, so everything you hear is ALL BILL!

Bill has performed at many of Austin's premiere establishments as well as on the world's top cruise lines, where a complete range of ages and nationalities appreciate his talent, affirmed here by the selection of photos of him with his fans, from his travels throughout the world.

Bill's polished piano and vocal stylings are just the right touch for private corporate functions, weddings, and parties - or your own special event.

In addition, Bill can also provide a portable keyboard and complete sound setup, in case neither is available at your venue.

The video selections here are sequenced by category: the first four are from the era of the "Great American Songbook", the next three are sing-alongs of classic rock, and the final three are an array of classical styles - ragtime, baroque and romantic. Six of the videos feature vocals, and the other four are purely instrumental.

For 29 more of his performances on video, arranged by category, check out his You Tube channel!

His vast, comprehensive Gigmasters songlist is divided into three sections, each separated by an upper-case header: POP ROCK; STANDARDS, SHOWTUNES & MOVIE THEMES; and CLASSICAL.

Bill was fantastic. He arrived at our home, on time, and immediately began preparations for the evening. He was very friendly and personable. I would definitely hire him for another event.

The moment Bill starting singing and playing my family started dancing, and barley took a breath. His music was a big reason why this 80th birthday event was a hit with all ages.
