Cocktail Pianist (solo)

Cocktail piano is one of the most popular forms of jazz since the 1920s, due to the ability to play harmony and melody simultaneously on the instrument. Booking our cocktail pianist means you're booking one of the best young session musicians in London, with a flexible repertoire including popular jazz songs from the golden age of jazz, including music from jazz giants such as Cole Porter, George Gershwin and Glenn Miller, with a sprinkling of more modern songs thrown in for good measure (in cocktail piano style of course). The music is designed to be smooth, soft and classy, so is perfect for drinks receptions for corporate or private events, or light dinner music. Our pianist can either provide their own portable digital keyboard (with stand) or can perform on a real piano at the venue if provided - simply make your selection when booking.

*Please note, our pianist can provide a keyboard if required, OR can perform on a piano if one is present at the venue. If you are providing a piano, please ensure there is a piano stool, and that the piano has been recently tuned. Please let us know if you'll be providing a piano when booking.*
