Performing as a Pianist in Lancashire
My name is Eugene Portman and a large proportion of my work as a pianist is in Lancashire. I love Lancashire as a county and there are many lovely venues scattered throughout the area. These include lovely pubs and restaurants to luxury hotels and golf clubs. The events I play the piano for range from private parties to weddings and cover a wide range of venues.
Me as a Wedding Pianist
Sing along pianists are often needed in Lancashire and I always enjoy doing this sort of entertainment. This website is mostly about my work playing the piano for Cockney style sing-alongs. However, I do much more than that.
Lancashire also provides me with quite a lot of weddings which demands a certain amount of versatility from me as a pianist. In order to provide music for weddings, I have to be able to perform many styles of music. For instance, classical music is often the preferred choice for ceremonies, and jazz seems to be the in-thing for drinks receptions. My repertoire is far-ranging and includes pop, rock, Latin, classical, blues and sing-along.
The Baby Grand Piano Shell
Not all venues have a piano, so I often use a digital one that I bring and set up at the venue. This works really well, but people in the Lancashire area often prefer the appearance of a pianist playing a real piano. I have the answer to this in the form of a baby grand piano shell. This discretely houses a digital piano, but transforms it into a beautiful focal point. I charge £80 extra for this on top of my normal fee and it can be set up anywhere.
This site is mostly about my work as a sing-along pianist and Lancashire is popular for this sort of thing.
