If you're looking to hear anything from lush ballads to stride piano, soft rock to extraordinary Chopin pieces, swingin' jazz standards to Broadway tunes, please check out Lou's audio and video samples and consider him for your next special event.
Along with being a competent, engaging, and experienced pianist, here are some of Lou's unique qualities:
1. He has the knack and the desire to "play the party," i.e. to be touch with the ambiance that you would like to have, and then to help create that ambiance through the choice and style of music selections and through his presence.
2. He is able to play different genres of piano music authentically. He spent many years training as a classical pianist as well as a jazz pianist. He has performed in pop and jazz bands, accompanied classical, jazz, and pop singers and given numerous solo concerts. He is still actively learning, continually expanding his repertoire and skills, and is always happy to learn any special music requests that are not already in his repertoire.
3. He will work with you flexibly to ensure that the flow and success of the party are his top priority. For instance, with the formality of the gigmasters bidding process, the number of breaks and the amount of time per break seem very rigid. But sometimes the flow of the party works better if the musician doesn't take the breaks exactly as prescribed. He understands this and does his best to be in sink with the ebb and flow of the party.
4. He will also work flexibly with you in terms of the cost. He understands that these are demanding times. If you like what you see and hear on his site but you can't quite swing the amount that he has bid (even though he aims to be competitive), feel free to get in touch with him and let him know that you need a price adjustment. He will do his best to accommodate you.

Lou was great to work with. We hired Lou to play our wedding ceremony music and part of cocktail hour. He even helped us with the musical selections! I would recommend Lou for a traditional wedding or corporate event and would not hesitate to have him perform for us again. Lastly, we booked very close to the wedding date so needed someone who would respond quickly and provide helpful suggestions. Aside from the Piano placement which made it hard to see the cues for the ceremony (not Lou's fault), we were very pleased with his work!
