Performing as a Pianist in Suffolk
My name is Eugene Portman and I often work as a pianist in Suffolk and Eat Anglia. The county has many great venues that are ideal for all types of events. These venues range from lovely country pubs and stately homes to modern hotels. Suffolk is a big wedding destination and a lot of my work is playing the piano for these weddings.
Me as a Wedding Pianist in Suffolk
As you have probably noticed, this website is mostly about my work as a singalong pianist and Suffolk provides me plenty of this sort of work. However, as I’ve already mentioned, I provide music for weddings and this means that I have to be very versatile. To explain, I have to be able to play many styles and genres of music. This is because I am often expected to perform different styles of music for the various parts of the day. For instance, classical music is often requested for the ceremony, while jazz is often the preferred choice for the drinks reception. I play many styles of music so that I can cope with all these situations. These styles include classical, jazz, pop, rock, Latin, blues, and singalong.
The Baby Grand Piano Shell
Any pianist performing in Suffolk would usually use a digital piano as very few venues in the area have a real piano. Digital pianos do a great job and they sound fantastic, but a lot of people prefer the appearance of a normal piano. This is where my baby grand piano shell comes into its own. As its name implies, this is a shell in the shape of a grand piano that houses a digital piano. The result looks superb and makes an excellent focal point at any event.
I charge £80 for this and it can be set up anywhere at your chosen venue. A lot of the events that I play the piano for in the Suffolk region go for the grand piano shell option.
