$175 - $400 per event
I have been performing for over 35 years including performing for Mary Martin, Arthur Fiedler , was the organist for the NHL Hartford Whalers hockey Club for 4 years including playing at the NHL All Star Game held in Connecticut. I was also the musical director for the TV 38 television show "The Sports Fan" taped live a the Mohegan Sun Casino. I am best known for playing solo piano throughout the new England area at weddings, Country Clubs and Cape Cod Resorts and Hotels. I started my career, learning by studying classical piano at the McGill Preparatory School of Music in Montreal and then completed my music education with 4 years at Berklee College of music in Boston. Having both a classical upbringing and learning the techniques of jazz and popular have allowed me to build up and extensive repertoire. In addition to performing with Gig Masters events, I am entertaining at selected assistant living facilities, working to bring the joy of music to the residents on a daily basis. I have also established a vibrant teaching business where I work with students of all ages learn to make music their passion by teaching them the correct way to practice which makes the drudgery of practice much more fun and rewarding. We individualize each students learning curriculum based on there goals, and the music that they enjoy. The most important message is that it is never too early or too late to learn to play the piano, a gift that keeps on giving for a lifetime.

Doug came in and set up this ancient pipe organ from the late 1800s. It was squeaking and squawking instead of sounding like an organ, but he spent a bunch of time setting up the stops and getting it all right. When we decided on what type of lighting we wanted for the wedding, Doug was unable to see the pedals of the organ because we needed his area to be dark. He was totally cool about it, and we were able to get him enough light just by using an iPhone flashlight positioned at the pedals. Doug played an organ that I doubt anyone else could have played, played piano so nicely that the scene felt perfect, and he was nice and warm to all of the guests.

Doug was a perfect fit for our party. Everyone enjoyed his playing as we sang around the piano. Doug easily agreed to stay and play longer that evening. He is very professional and very talented. I would highly recommend hiring Doug for anyone looking for cocktail party / light background music for their event. Would definitely hire him for next years party.
