Solo Piano Pianists who work in hotels and restaurants, and do weddings and cruises, are usually cocktail pianist entertainers. Alex is different, however - he plays as a jazz pianist. This means, for example, high levels of accuracy and dynamism. Songs are played with a certain structure - playing the head (melody) of a song once through (eg. My Favorite Things), then improvising over the chord changes a few times round before repeating the head.
Although a cocktail pianist is the traditional choice, from experience, most people prefer the excitement and flair of a decent jazz musician.

Alex can play maximum four hours solo piano with hourly 15 minute breaks, without repeating a tune.

Solo piano is subtle and discreet enough for quiet moments where a band would be inappropriate, but also it can fill a room at more rowdy and energetic moments.

Alex plays some more modern, popular songs as well, and can play the ususal: Happy Birthday, Here Comes the Bride and Wedding March in both straight and jazzed-up styles. Requests can be considered, although there is sometimes a charge for this, depending on what song is requested.

If there is no piano at the venue, a piano can be hired, or Alex can bring his keyboard / amp. See the rates page for more information on this.
