A London pianist for parties and events

Here are examples of some of the London parties, private events and corporate events that Bryan has played at.

Glenn's 50th birthday party

The Ivy Restaurant, West Street, London WC2

Glenn was looking for an event pianist to play at his big 50th birthday party bash. Several weeks before the event Bryan met with Glenn at the venue to plan the music for his party in January 2017. Glenn had hired a large private room upstairs at the Ivy, which has its own grand piano. It was decided to play some jazz standards as guests were arriving, followed by more upbeat pop during the main drinks reception and dinner. Glenn had some special requests for Bryan to learn, which included the James Bond movie themes For Your Eyes Only by Sheena Easton and Writings On The Wall by Sam Smith. The evening finished off with a sing-a-long with Glenn's friends around the piano.

Liz's 50th birthday party

Camden Place, Chislehurst, London

Bryan played at Liz's drinks reception and birthday dinner at Camden Place - a historic mansion, originally built in 1609. The evening was in two parts - first the drinks reception, where Bryan played vintage jazz standards using his portable stage piano. For the second part of the evening, guests moved into the large panelled Eugenie dining room where Bryan played pop songs from present day, back to the 1960's on the venue's Yamaha upright piano. Liz said "I was searching around for a pianist or a piano player with a portable piano - and I managed to find Bryan - I'm so glad I did because his music made the evening".

Richard's champagne reception drinks

Period home, London

Bryan was invited to play at Richard's champagne birthday drinks to celebrate his 50th birthday party in April 2017.

You have honestly been an absolute pleasure to deal with which makes a huge difference within the stress of an event. It’s very rare our piano ever gets played so it was wonderful to listen to you playing it so beautifully during the champagne reception. Simply stunning. Thank you for letting my cousin and Grandad join in for a duet 🙂 I’m certain we’ll be in touch again soon for another family event."
