Sing-along pianist plays Ragtime music
As a sing-along pianist I have played for Country and Western themed events. They are really popular and I am being hired as a pianist for these occasions.
For these events my attire includes a bowler hat, ribbon bow tie, waistcoat etc.
The type of music I play consists of an early form of ragtime piano mixed up with a number of American patriotic songs it’s the type of music you would expect to hear in the saloon of a typical cowboy film.
I also supply song sheets designed specifically for these events and the songs from this sheet are listed below:
She’s the Yellow Rose of Texas
Yankee Doodle Dandy
Battle Hymn of the Republic
When Johnny Comes Marching Home
My Bonnie Lies Over the Ocean
When The Saints Go Marching In
Having an honky-tonk pianist can really create that Wild West feel for any party or occasion. I must say that I do enjoy playing for Western themed events and I hope that I am going to be playing for many more soon.
