Working as a Pianist in Essex
My name is Eugene Portman and I have performed extensively in Essex as a pianist. This diverse county has a great variety of venues in it’s many towns and villages. These range from historic houses to modern hotels. Furthermore, I have played the piano in most of venues that are dotted throughout Essexthem at one time or another.
Me as a Wedding Pianist
This website is mostly about my work as a pub/sing-along pianist, but I do much more than this, especially in the Essex area. Just to clarify, I also play the piano for a lot of weddings and I have to be versatile to be successful at this. Weddings often require me to play different styles of music for each part of the day. For instance, classical music is a popular choice for ceremonies, while jazz is often the preferred choice for drinks receptions. Some of the genres I play include pop, jazz, classical, rock, blues, Latin, and sing-along.

The Grand Piano Shell
As mentioned earlier, a lot of my work in the Essex region is as a wedding pianist. For weddings I find that most couples like to see a conventional piano rather than a digital one. However, I can offer a grand piano shell which is ideal for weddings and other formal events. If you don’t like the look of a conventional digital piano, then this could be just for you. The shell can be set up anywhere and costs an additional £80 on top of my fee.
I perform as a pianist in many of Essex’s towns which include: Chelmsford, Colchester, Basildon, Harlow, Grays, Clacton-on-Sea, Benfleet, Brentwood, Braintree, Loughton, Canvey Island, Billericay, Wickford, Rayleigh, Stanford le Hope, Corringham, Witham, Maldon, Harwich, Waltham Abbey, South Ockendon, Frinton, Walton, Saffron Walden, Tilbury, Halstead, Chigwell, Epping, Tiptree, Brightlingsea, Burnham-on-Crouch, Wivenhoe, West Mersea, Danbury, Little Baddow, Great Dunmow, Chipping Ongar and Manningtree.
