"Brilliant! Alex, thank you the fabulous performance by your jazz trio at our home on Halloween. You turned what was a fun cocktail party into what many of our guests claimed was the best party of the year." --Jane O., 2011
Alex and his ensembles, including Sarah King and the Smoke Rings and The Alex Levin Trio, carry liability insurance.
Alex Levin is available as a solo pianist or with his elegantly swinging trio. One of the city's most exceptional pianists, Alex has played at hundreds of parties, including weddings and corporate functions, where he has delighted guests with renditions of popular standards by Gershwin, Porter, and Irving Berlin. His music is always an excellent choice at dinner parties and cocktail hours.
He has performed at New York Jazz clubs such as Smalls, Night and Day, Detour, Kavehaz, and Rue B in the East Village, as well as clubs throughout the United States and Europe. His music has been featured on Public Radio and All About Jazz, a popular jazz website. A sparkling, swinging band, his trio is available for bookings at clubs, private parties, corporate functions, weddings and receptions. He is also available as a solo pianist, and he has performed in this capacity at The Standard Hotel, The University Club, The Harvard Club, The Williams Club, Columbia University, and in many hotels and private residences throughout Manhattan and Brooklyn. Be sure to listen to his soundclips and read his reviews on his website--easily found with a Google search. A graduate of Brown University Middlebury College's Breadloaf School of English, Alex is an avid fan of literature and teaches at Saint Ann's School in Brooklyn, New York.
Should you wish to book Alex or his trio but do not have a piano, he can arrange to bring along an electric piano that sounds exactly like a real piano. The trio includes a bassist and a drummer, a bassist and a sax player, or a bassist and a guitarist. A vocalist is also available should you wish to have a Diana Krall/Nat King Cole sound. His swing band, Sarah King and the Smoke Rings, is a popular choice. Of course you can choose to book a larger ensemble. No matter what decision you make, you can be certain that Alex and his band will be professional and that the music will be tailored to your party.
