Introducing the Jazz Vocalist Louise Stuckey

Louise Stuckey - Jazz Vocalist

Louise has definitely made her mark as a highly respected jazz singer and one who is capable of crossing the borders of jazz into other fields such as pop and rock. Getting to the very essence of a song and conveying this to her audience is where Louise excels. Her interpretations of jazz standards are original, but she still manages to retain the true flavour of the original song. This is something she seems to be able to apply to any song whether it’s a jazz standard, a pop song or a rock ballad. Louise has been influenced by many singers of the past such as Ella Fitzgerald,  Judy Garland, Vera Lynn and Dusty Springfield. However, she doesn’t just copy a singer – she uses that influence to develop her own unique and inimitable style

Her background has consisted of classical vocal lessons from the age of 9. She has had a thorough training in Musical Theatre and Acting, receiving a foundation certificate from The Oxford School of Drama and a BA Hons degree in Acting from The Liverpool Institute of Performing Arts (LIPA). Louise has performed in several theatre shows and touring productions as well as performing as a singer at many corporate events, weddings and private parties.

 Baby Grand Piano Shell 3

 

A baby grand piano shell is available for those occasions where a normal digital piano just wouldn’t look quite right. This can be set up in about 45 minutes and it holds a conventional digital piano. A lot of people think that it is a real grand piano when they see it and are surprised when they find out that it is just a shell with a keyboard inside.It only costs an additional £80 for Eugene to bring this piece of equipment with him to an event. That is a small fraction of what it would be to hire a grand piano from a supplier.

There are a few limitations on where Eugene can offer this service, but it is fine for most situations. There are restrictions in Central Hertfordshire and other major cities due to parking problems. Please contact Eugene and he will try and get around any obstacles.

Looking for a Wedding Pianist?

Wedding Cake and Hat

I can provide different types of music for different parts of your wedding day. You can have classical music for the ceremony followed by solo jazz piano for the drinks reception. You can then have mellow dinner music during the wedding breakfast followed by a jazz trio for the evening. You can even have a Cockney sing-a-long  as part of your day. Just let me know your preferences and I'll try and accomodate. 

Whatever your requirements are - I'm sure that I can help you out. I always provide recorded music while I take my breaks and I can also supply a radio microphone for the speeches.

I can be booked as a pianist for any Christmas party

Christmas Tree

Christmas is upon us again and lots of parties and other festivities have to be planned. I am often hiredas a pianist for Christmas parties - especially in London. Pianists are plentiful in South East England but there are so many parties happening that there is more than enough work for most of them. I am often asked to provide background dinner music, but Christmas often demands music of a more lively nature, and people often like to have a sing song. I  play lots of Christmas songs, but here are just two Christmas song medleys that I can provide song sheets for: 

Christmas Sing-along Sheet 1

Away in a Manger
Good Christian Men Rejoice
God Rest Ye Merry, Gentlemen
Silent Night
I Saw Three Ships
Hark the Herald Angels
O Come All Ye Faithful

Christmas Sing-along Sheet 2

The First Noel
While Shepherds Watched
O Little Town of Bethlehem
Once in Royal David's City
Good King Wenceslas
Ding Dong Merrily on High
We Three Kings of Orient Are

Christmas Sing-along Sheet 3

Deck the Halls
Jingle Bells
The Holly and the Ivy
Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer
