I'm a Chicago area multi-instrumentalist, piano is the forte. I do solo piano, solo piano+vocals, and/or solo guitar+vocals. With a large repertoire covering diverse genres (jazz, classical, blues, classic and modern rock, pop, Celtic, alternative, etc.) you name it, I play it. I've played many weddings, receptions, cocktail hours, sing-along Celtic music for St. Patrick's Day parties, background jazz for restaurants, classic rock for parties, I ran the headlining jazz band for a private fundraiser at the Palmer House for 3 years, played festivals, clubs, bars, piano bars, dueling piano engagements with other players, and more. I also instruct at two music studios in the Chicago area, and have been teaching for going on 10 years.
I can learn specific tunes, abide with special requests, introductions, greetings, announcements before events, or if looking for a quick and painless musician to do everything and not have to worry about specifics, I select appropriate material myself with no extra involvement required. If more musicians are needed I have plenty of contacts and can give more specific pricing information for duos or larger bands based on their rates. The longer the engagement, of course, the lower the price will be per hour. Hope to hear from you!
