Working as a Pianist in Sussex
My name is Eugene Portman and I spend a lot of time touring Sussex as a pianist. There is a vast range of venues and I have played the piano in most of them at one time or another. These venues range for coastal hotels csuch as the ones in Brighton and Eastbourne to rural country house hotels.
Me as a Wedding Pianist
I work a lot in Sussex as a singalong pianist and this website is dedicated to that line of work. However, I play the piano for a lot of weddings and this means that I have to be versatile. Playing for weddings often involves playing different styles of music for the various parts of the day. This can be anything from playing classical music for a ceremony to performing jazz for a drinks reception. The genres of music I cover include jazz, pop, Latin, rock, classical, blues, and sing-along.
If you are interested in my work as a sing-along pianist then please explore the links on this site. However, if you are looking at the other styles of music I do , then please visit www.ukweddingpianist.co.uk and www.eugeneportman.com.
The Grand Piano Shell
A venue doesn’t have to have a piano. I can bring a digital piano with me and set it up anywhere. But if you prefer the look of a normal piano, I can offer my baby grand piano shell. This looks like a baby grand piano and it discretely houses a normal digital piano. This costs an extra £80 on top of my normal fee and I can set it up anywhere you like.
I work as a pianist all over Sussex. Here are some of the towns and cities I cover: Worthing, Bognor Regis, Littlehampton, Horsham, Burgess Hill, Sompting, Lancing, Haywards Heath, Chichester, East Grinstead, Westergate, Barnham, Yapton, Hurstpierpoint, Keymer, Selsey, Steyning, Upper Beeding, Southwater, Storrington, Midhurst, Billingshurst, East Wittering, Henfield, Pulborough, Arundel, Cuckfield, Tangmere, Boxgrove, Bosham, Ashington, Petworth, Partridge Green, Birdham, Walberton, Findon, Fernhurst and Rudgwick.
