Hello, I am a pianist who plays festivals, concerts, conventions, casinos, theaters, restaurants and clubs, as well as weddings, parties and corporate events. Besides playing solo piano or doing a one-man-band (w/ NO canned sequences) I also have a rock duo, a jazz trio, and an excellent dance/party wedding band.

You see, I just simply LOVE to play! As I tell my students, it's easy to be good at something if you love it. That's why I've been a full-time musician since graduating summa cum laude from Shenandoah Conservatory of Music. This IS my day job, and I love it!

I also play in church, and perform free at various fundraisers and charities, for talent is a gift, and what I do with it is my gift back.

Now I would be honored to provide the music for your wedding ceremony, reception, cocktail party, dinner dance or corporate event. From classical music for a ceremony to jazz for cocktails, from soft romantic music for dinner to dance party music for a reception, whatever you prefer, I know I can provide the perfect mix to please all your guests. I have a vast repertoire of over 1000 songs FROM MEMORY, (including Rhapsody in Blue) and am able to play most all requests.

But instead of my words, read what others say:

Wedding Ceremony in Wilmington, DE on 05/18/2013

Words can not describe how absolutely pleased we were with David. I had read many good revews prior to booking David and would have to agree, you can't go wrong selecting David for your entertainment for your event; I would highly recommend him. He was so accommodating, he had an extensive repertoire of music he played and I even sent him pieces that I did not see on his list and he accommodated every one either playing himself, or when I asked, had him play the original recording. We received so many compliments, some of the guests even asked for his card . He made our day extra special !" - Lizabeth M.

Wedding in Philadelphia, PA on 10/06/2012

"David was great. We hired David to play for our small-medium size wedding in downtown Philadelphia. We had a few special requests which he was able to accommodate, and otherwise let him read the party. David did a great job playing the party; everyone raved about how good he was. He was professional and accessible before the show and during. I highly recommend David for any event." - David K.
