Performing as a Pianist in Bedfordshire
My name is Eugene Portman and I’m always surprised how many times I’m booked as a pianist in Bedfordshire. I suppose that an area with so many wonderful venues as this is going to be very popular for events. These events can range from private parties to corporate events, but I play the piano for more weddings in Bedfordshire than anything else.
Me as a Wedding Pianist in Bedfordshire
Looking around this website you will have probably notice that it is mostly about my work providing sing-along entertainment. However, I do much more than this. A large proportion of my work in the Bedfordshire area is as a wedding pianist and being versatile is important. To explain, I am often required to play a different style of music for each part of the wedding day. For instance, classical music (particularly Debussy and Pachelbel) is popular for ceremonies while jazz is the in-thing for drinks receptions. Also, a wedding breakfast would probably have an entirely different style of music to the evening reception. Over the years I have immersed myself in many styles of music and I can play blues, rock, classical, pop, jazz, Latin, and sing-along.
The Baby Grand Piano Shell
Only a handful of venues in Bedfordshire have a piano and any pianist performing in the region would normally use a digital one. Digital pianos are great, except for the fact that sometimes an event needs something that looks more like a real piano. Luckily, I have the answer with my baby grand piano shell. This looks like the real thing, but it discretely houses a digital piano. Furthermore, the whole thing makes a good focal point for any type of event.
I charge £80 on top of my normal fee for this and it can be set up anywhere.
