Performing as a Pianist in Cheshire
My name is Eugene Portman and throughout the year Cheshire provides me with a large amount of work as a pianist. As a matter of fact, I’m sure that the number of events I play for is related to the number of wonderful venues in the county. These venues range from historical buildings and country house hotels to modern hotels and golf clubs.
The events I play for include birthday parties, anniversaries, product launches, Christmas parties and corporate events. However, it is mostly weddings that I play the piano for in the Cheshire area.
Me as a Wedding Pianist in Cheshire
This website is mostly about my work playing the piano for sing-along entertainment, but I do much more than this. A lot of my work is as a wedding pianist and this means that I have to be versatile, especially in the Cheshire area. To explain, I often have to provide a different style of music for each part of the day. For example, classical music is often the preferred choice for ceremonies while jazz is very popular for drinks receptions. Also, a wedding breakfast wouldn’t necessarily have the same style of music that an evening reception would. Fortunately, I play many styles of music including pop, jazz, Latin, blues, classical and even sing-along.
The Baby Grand Piano Shell
Very few venues in Cheshire have pianos and any pianist performing in the area would usually use a digital piano. I’m a big fan of digital pianos as they are portable and they often sound much better than a real piano. However, most people prefer the appearance of a real piano rather than a keyboard on a stand. I have the answer to this in the form of a baby grand piano shell. This piano shell transforms a normal digital piano into a focal point and looks like a real baby grand piano.
I charge £80 on top of my normal fee for this and it can be set up anywhere.
