Serving San Francisco and the Bay area, Kevin Roland has been performing all over the US for nearly 20 years. Kevin has accompanied such entertainers as Luther Vandross, Reba McIntyre, Michael Bolton, and Kenny G. He has performed as a soloist with a variety of ensembles including the Tampa Bay Symphony Orchestra, Pensacola Symphony Orchestra, and several college orchestral and band ensembles. Until the Summer of 2013, Kevin was based in Washington, DC where he worked as piano accompanist and Musical Director for Artspeak! Through this program, he has accompanied such Broadway stars as Brad Oscar (The Producers), Audra McDonald (Raisin in the Sun), Alice Ripley (Sideshow), Liz Calloway (Cats), Kristen Chenoweth (Wicked), Idina Menzel (Rent & Wicked), Sutton Foster (Thoroughly Modern Millie), & Judy Kuhn (Les Mis & Passion). Kevin was also the house pianist at the infamous Willard Intercontinental Hotel in DC and also performed at the White House on several occassions, the VP Mansion, the Metropolitan Club & The Georgetown Club in DC. Previously, Kevin was the musical director at Stars (formerly Mimi's American Bistro), for 9 years, DC's only cabaret restaurant that featured nightly live professional singing servers. Kevin has also played on Broadway for numerous shows and moved to SF to be the Resident Music Director at the Berkeley Playhouse. He has also played at many piano bars in DC, NYC, and New Orleans.

Kevin has played for hundreds of weddings, parties, business functions, fund-raisers, and other social gatherings. Some of the people Kevin has played for in the DC area include former President Clinton (fund raiser 2009), Vice-President Cheney (private holiday party), David Bradley/Chris Matthews/Tom Brokaw (holiday party 2004, 2005, 2006 & corporate party 2004 & 2005), Steven Spielberg (Mimi's American Bistro 2005), Tony Kushner (Mimi's American Bistro 2005), Goldie Hawn (Mimi's American Bistro 2003-2006), Bernadette Peters and Elaine Paige (Willard Hotel 2011) among others.

No performance is too small or large. I often play in-home private concerts or dinners for couples on their anniversary or other special occasions for larger groups. If you do not have a piano, I can arrange for one (if the space allows and at an additional cost) or bring an electronic piano and sound system. I can also provide a variety of singers and other instruments at your request.

Kevin was prompt, accommodating, and rolled with the punches. He played wonderfully. He was able to improve a few tunes with a trombone because the wedding was running a little late. It was a stormy day, and Kevin was able to play without interruption or complaint. Very talented, and very professional.

Kevin was great to work with all around. He was easy to get in touch with, responsive to any and all questions we had, made great suggestions on music selections, and most importantly played beautifully. My wife and I would have no reservations about recommending Kevin to play at your event, everyone was very complimentary of his play during the wedding ceremony and afterwards in our cocktail reception. A+

He was terrific. Extremely talented and every guest was impressed with his song list and ease of transitions into songs. He was $ well spent and I was asked about his availability from many guests. We were more than pleased to have him for this group that is very particular with musicians. I wish I had another event to have play for us again.
