WINNER of the 2014 AND 2015 "Rising Star Award" for *TOP KEYBOARDIST* on GigMasters!

Also awarded the "Best of 2015" badge (2012, 13, & 14 too!)

Hello, I am a pianist who plays festivals, concerts, conventions, casinos, theaters, restaurants and clubs, as well as weddings, parties and corporate events. Besides playing solo piano or doing a one-man-band (w/ NO canned sequences) I also have a pop duo with a very talented vocalist, a smokin' jazz trio, classical string trio, and an excellent dance/party wedding band.

You see, I just simply LOVE to play! As I tell my students, it's easy to be good at something if you love it. That's why I've been a full-time musician since graduating summa cum laude from Shenandoah Conservatory of Music. This IS my day job, and I love it!

I also play in church, and perform free at various fundraisers and charities, for talent is a gift, and what I do with it is my gift back.

Now I would be honored to provide the music for your wedding ceremony, reception, cocktail party, dinner dance or corporate event. From classical music for a ceremony to jazz for cocktails, from soft romantic music for dinner to dance party music for a reception, whatever you prefer, I know I can provide the perfect mix to please all your guests. I have a vast repertoire of over 1000 songs FROM MEMORY, (including Rhapsody in Blue) and am able to play most all requests.

But instead of my words, read what others say:

TESTIMONIALS: (from my website's Guestbook)

"Dave - You rock! Simply the best in the tri-state area! I always run into you when our band Remedy plays The Reef and just sit back and enjoy! You are just one fabulous keyboard player -- great form, technique, and a great ear. You are most certainly something for me to aspire towards!" -Pat Bush, Wilmington, DE

"David you are a most talented musician as well as an excellent orchestra conductor and music director. Your work on CAPA's High Society and Little Shop of Horrors was outstanding. I look forward to working with you in the future. Always, Alex " -Alex Handy, Easton, MD

"David played for my folks' 50th anniversary party last September at The Farmhouse in Avondale. I knew from previous experience that he would put on a good show with just the kind of music the "old folks" would like, as well as a few for us younger people, too. Not only did he exceed my expectations in that regard, but he brought the house down, to the point where other restaurant guests came wandering in to see where the great music was coming from. By the end of the evening we were all up dancing, and hearing Rhapsody in Blue was the icing on the cake. Wonderful!" -Carolyn Hendrix, Port Deposit, MD

"We had the distinct pleasure of producing "Nunsense" last year..David was the pianist. WOW! Standing ovation from the full houses every night after his pre-show gig. Used him again in Dec. for "Nuncrackers" at Milton Theatre. Also booked him for a major Lewes fundraiser. THEN I booked him for a private party at my home (can't get enough!). Excellent musician...great fun to work with..superb show!" -Sue & Charlie Meyer, Lewes, DE

"This is Cheryl Romano Banquet Coordinator from the Rehoboth Beach Country Club in Delaware, we are a members only country club. I have had the distinct pleasure in booking David individually for many years as a piano player for our members and they always look forward to hearing him play. We recently had his group here for our Saturday evening entertainment, and they really had our crowd on the dance floor! Comments and raves continue to come in! We are looking forward to their return later this year!" -Cheryl Romano, Rehoboth Beach, DE

"David brings much joy to our Assisted Living facility everytime he plays. He is an excellent pianist and a great guy. My residents absolutely love him!" -Annette Bahn, Rockland Place, Wilmington, DE

"During the Chautauqua Tent Show in Lewes this summer, David Zipse created a fabulous experience of George Gershwin's music for an audience of over 500 people. Due in large part to the amazing talent of Mr. Zipse, it was a record-breaking attendance for an event that has been going on for ten years. As an organizer for the event, I found it great to be working with such a music professional. It was a top-notch performance! -Andrea Anderson, Lewes, DE

I cannot speak more highly of David. I had booked him to play during the cocktail hour for my wedding reception. As soon as I booked him, he reached out to me with a professional e-mail to get more information on my event. He was very accommodating to my requests, and prompt with responding. For the event itself, David showed up early to set up and briefly met with me to formally introduce himself. When the event started all I could hear was beautiful piano music coming from the cocktail room. I asked friends what they thought of the music and they LOVED it. David was not only professional, but an amazing pianist. I highly recommend him.

David played at our recent trade show in Atlantic City. Over the course of our two-day, 10-hour event David remained highly energetic and pumped out the hits one after another. He has a great attitude and a vast collection of songs to tap into. I highly recommend him for any event. He is fun and professional. You can't go wrong.
