I had the pleasure of being the singing pianist at several Los Angeles area holiday events over the past several weeks – so much fun creating musical magic for families and friends! Being invited into someone’s home to entertain with music is a very special treat for me – people want to have live music in their household and they want the magic of a live performer who can sing and bring people’s spirits up, create a festive atmosphere and generally just help them have a great time and make the party fun!
My repertoire of jazz standards, classic rock, pop, oldies 50s, 60s, 70s, 80s and recent contemporary pop/rock hits along with a slew of great holiday songs, both traditional and jazz arrangements, helped make these event fun both for me and for the clients and their guests!
I think the thing that I most value, especially with the great positive feedback I got ad each of the recent events I was hired for, is that they all felt that I brought something special to their party, something that raised up the level of fun for them to a point where they were really excited and elated – I call this magic! For me, it’s what I would call “aliveness” and it’s what people want to feel more of! So I guess that’s my message to anyone who’s having a party or special event – I bring “aliveness” to your party with my musical performance, my attitude, my professionalism, my manners, etc. It’s what I expect of myself. I would be embarrassed not to bring these things as what I present, especially to those who are paying me to entertain them.
Part of my joy in doing this is getting nice reviews from people. Here you can read a really nice Yelp review that one of my recent clients posted:
Please let me know if you’ve got an event coming up and would love to have the positive energy of a great singing pianist to raise the roof off your party!
