Bob's current performance schedule finds him in Atlantic City, Philadelphia, New York City, and all of the surrounding suburbs. Bob is available to perform piano / keyboard music for your special event; from wedding ceremony, cocktails, reception, private or corporate events, he is able to provide a polished, class act of quality piano music to serve your needs. His repertoire consists of Jazz Standards, Broadway, Classical, Current Popular and Classic Rock selections. Bob performs an eclectic mix of music spanning many genres and time periods. A typical set might include Night and Day by Cole Porter (swing jazz), Awake My Soul by Mumford and Sons (current popular), Sun and Moon from Claude-Michel Schonberg (Broadway musical), an improv version of Us and Them by Waters / Wright of Pink Floyd (classic rock) to Clair de Lune from Claude Debussy (classical). Of course Bob will select the appropriate music for the occasion as needed, to set the proper musical "atmosphere". Preludes before a Wedding Ceremony will be a different set list than that of a Cocktail Party. Listen to Music Samples on this and Bob's Website: to compare and hear the difference!
In his past career as music educator, Bob dedicated 30 years to instructing children in the Hamilton Township, New Jersey Public Schools, as an instrumental music teacher. In his most recent post he served in four elementary schools, with over 200 students in his roll book annually. Bob previously taught at Grice Middle school for 25 years as an instrumental music teacher, concert and jazz band director. In 2006, Bob was chosen to direct the New Jersey Region II Junior High School Jazz Ensemble, a division of the International Association of Jazz Educators.


A Testimonial from a private Holiday Party…..

Diane said...
Bob Emmons was recommended to me by a neighbor who is a musician who had played in a band with Bob. I had interviewed 2 other pianists and was most satisfied with Bob's presentation over the phone and on-line. In this rating I wasn't quite sure what was intended by "flexibility", for me it was Bob's flexibility on variety of music he would play as compared to others. My party guests raved about the music. Two of my guests expressed interest in taking keyboard lessons from Bob they were so impressed. His equipment and sound system fit easily into the corner of my family room and the sound filled the house without drowning out conversation. He has such an easy manor about him that I'd gladly have Bob as a guest if he weren't playing! In short, Bob's piano music added the holiday ambiance to make the party truly festive. I would gladly recommend his services and look forward to engaging Bob in our next event.

Bob was a great choice for our wedding cocktail hour at Oakeside Mansion in Bloomfield. He responded to us within 24 hours of initial inquiry, and it took just a few emails + one 15 minute phone call to sort out all details. He self-managed on the wedding day, showing up early, setting up and playing without any hassle. He worked splendidly with our other vendors. We found Bob's prices to be very fair, especially when you factor in his level of preparation. You may find a cheaper piano player but we think you’d sacrifice talent and professionalism. Booking Bob was worry-free and added a lot to our reception. Wedding: May 2016, Oakeside Mansion, Bloomfield, NJ

Bob was fantastic as the pianist at our cocktail hour! He arrived on time, dressed very professionally, and played continuously great music for our guests. So many people commented how much they liked the live piano music and what a nice touch it was. I was slightly nervous about booking a musician without hearing him first, but Bob had great demos on his website and was very personable over email and phone, and he turned out to be even better in person. I could not recommend him more highly for your event!

Bob was friendly, accommodating, and lively. He is very talented and can play an eclectic repertoire. He is a good entertainer and accompaniest. Our 90 year old mom had a great time and so did her guests.
