I am the consummate solo pianist. I am very versatile in many styles and genres. From the American Songbook to jazz, Latin, rock and roll, blues, Motown, old TV themes, old TV commercials, Broadway musicals, waltzes, lullabies, video game themes, arrangements of cellphone ringtones, country, boogie-woogie, symphony themes, polkas, movie themes (like Victor Young, Miklos Rozsa, John Williams, etc), Liberace favorites, Roger Williams favorites, Ferrante and Teicher favorites, classical, cartoon themes and more. I will dazzle your ears with elegant, classy, sophisticated, soul stirring, top-notched piano music. I will rock your piano like no other. Your party will be made alive when I do "Name that Tune"! Your wedding reception will be so elegant when beautiful music is added. Your restaurant clientele will stay and stay!
I have been playing since the age of three and am a self-taught, play by ear musician. People think have been studying for years and are shocked when I tell them everything I play is my own arrangement. I also can play in a jazz trio format if preferred. I love music and it will come through wherever I play.
If you want the absolute best, professional, dependable people-charmer and if you want the absolute best pianist at your event do not hesitate to request my services.
You will be amazed and spellbound.
I have played at schools, retirement homes, wedding receptions, churches and private parties in the Chicago area. I have played at the Green Mill, Citlalin Theater, Jazz Showcase,
the Hyde Park Jazz Festival, Winters Jazz Club, The DuSable Museum, Lake Meadows Art Fair, Gallery Guichard, and many others. I even provide background music for silent films!
And to top it off I do requests!
My jazz trio consists of Charles Heath (drums) and Josh Ramos (bass) and both play with Ramsey Lewis. They have played all over the world and are the best there is.
I would absolutely LOVE to play for you. I get so happy when I play and this, in turn, will help make your event the BEST it can be. And you also will be happy!!
