Performing as a Pianist in Nottinghamshire
My name is Eugene Portman and my work as a pianist often takes me to the Nottinghamshire area. In fact, the area has an incredible choice of venues which makes the county the ideal place to hold an event or wedding. These venues range from lovely country pubs and restored industrial buildings to luxury hotels and golf clubs.
I play for the piano for all types of events, but it is weddings that usually brings me to Nottinghamshire.
Me as a Wedding Pianist in Nottinghamshire
This website is mainly about my work as a sing-along pianist and Nottinghamshire provides me with a lot of this type of work. However, I also play the piano for a lot of weddings and this means that I have to be versatile in the music I play. To explain, I am often required to provide a different style of music for each part of the wedding day. For instance, classical music is the number one choice for ceremonies, whereas jazz is very popular for drinks receptions. Also, the wedding meal would require a different style of music to an evening reception.
During my travels as a pianist around Nottinghamshire I’ve immersed myself in many styles of music and play many different genres. These genres include jazz, blues, classical, rock, pop, Latin and sing-along.
The Baby Grand Piano Shell
Generally there are very few pianos in Nottinghamshire’s venues and any pianist performing in the area would usually use a digital piano. Digital pianos are great as they are always in tune, they sound superb and they can be set up anywhere. Alas, there is a problem in that some events need something that looks like a real piano. However, I do have the answer with my baby grand piano shell. As its name suggests, this is a shell in the shape of a baby grand, however it discretely houses a standard digital piano. The result looks great and sounds as good as it looks. Quite a lot of the weddings I’ve played the piano for in Nottinghamshire go for the grand piano shell option.
I charge £80 on top of my normal fee for this and it can be set up anywhere.
