Performing as a Pianist in Staffordshire
My name is Eugene Portman and a fair amount of my work as a pianist comes from the Staffordshire area. This region of the UK is the ideal place to organise a wedding or event as it has a fantastic range of venues to choose from. As a matter of fact I have played the piano in many of Staffordshire’s venues and I’m sure that I’ll play in many more.
Me as a Wedding Pianist in Staffordshire
Because so much of my work in the Staffordshire area is for me as a wedding pianist, I have to be versatile. This means that I need to have a repertoire that covers many styles and genres of music. In fact, I often have to play different styles of music for each part of the wedding day. For instance, classical music if often the preferred choice for ceremonies, while jazz seems to be very popular for drinks receptions. Also, the wedding breakfast would probably require a totally different style of music to the evening reception. Fortunately, I play many styles of music including pop, rock, Latin, blues, jazz and sing-along.
The Baby Grand Piano Shell
Very few of the venues in Staffordshire have pianos and any pianist working in the area would normally use a digital piano. Digital pianos are great and they sound superb. Also, they can also be set up anywhere, even outside. The only problem is that some events require something that looks more like a real piano. I have the answer with my baby grand piano shell. This piano shell transforms a normal digital piano into a focal point and looks really good at any event.
I charge £80 on top of my normal fee for this and it can be set up anywhere.
