Working as a Pianist in Hampshire
My name is Eugene Portman and I travel throughout Hampshire as a pianist. The county is very close to me, so it is easy for me to get there and visit its many venues.
I have played for many private parties in Hampshire and they have often developed into one big sing-song. Furthermore, there are also many pubs in Hampshire that hold Cockney themed evenings and similar events, so there is plenty of scope for a honky-tonk/sing-along pianist to find work.
Me as a Wedding Pianist in Hampshire
This website is mostly about my work as a sing-along pianist and there is a lot of this type of work in Hampshire. However, this isn’t all that I do. A big part of my work consists of performing as a wedding pianist and this involves playing many styles of music. I am often required to play different genres of music for the various parts of the wedding day. For instance, classical music is popular for ceremonies and jazz is often requested for drinks receptions. Some of the styles of music I cover are pop, jazz, rock, classical, blues, Latin, and sing-along.
If you are interested in my work as a sing-along pianist, please explore the links on this site. If you want to know more about the other styles of music I play, then please visit my other websites at www.ukweddingpianist.co.uk and www.eugeneportman.com.
The Baby Grand Piano Shell
As I’ve already mentioned, I play the piano for a lot of weddings in Hampshire. For weddings I often find that couples prefer the look of a normal piano rather than a digital piano. This isn’t a problem as I can provide a baby grand piano shell that discretely houses a normal digital piano. This grand piano shell costs just £80 on top of my normal fee and I can set it up anywhere at your venue.
Here are some of the towns and cities in Hampshire that I cover a a pianist:
- Locks Heath
- New Milton
- Hayling Island
- Bishops Waltham
- Hartley Wintney
