Performing as a Pianist in Norfolk
My name is Eugene Portman and I always love working in Norfolk as a pianist. This because I enjoy seeing the lovely countryside and the wonderful venues in the region. In fact, these venues are perfect for couples who wish to marry away from the hustle and bustle of city life.
I play the piano in Norfolk’s many venues for weddings and all types of other events, and long may it continue.
A lot of my work is as a classical pianist is in Norfolk and East Anglia. Furthermore, this can range from just playing a few pieces for a ceremony to a whole evening of classical music. This type of music is suitable for some events, but not for others. Some events such as weddings require music of a lighter vein so I have to be very versatile with the music I play. The range of styles I play is very varied and I can provide piano music for every part of your wedding day or any other event. In fact, the genres I play cover pop, rock, classical, blues, jazz, swing, Latin, ragtime, and sing-a-long.
My main specialiy is music from the jazz and swing era. This consists of music made famous by the likes of Louis Armstrong, Ella Fitzgerald, Glenn Miller, and Frank Sinatra. Moreover, my piano style has been influenced by great jazz pianists such as Erroll Garner, Dudley Moore, Oscar Peterson, and George Shearing.
My Work as a Sing-along Pianist in Norfolk
There has been a recent trend to book me as a sing-along pianist around Norfolk and I’ve got to say this is something I really enjoy. To explain, all you have to do is provide the singers and I’ll provide the music and the song sheets. Also, I dress like an old fashioned Cockney pianist with a Bowler hat, waistcoat, grandad shirt, pocket watch, neckerchief, etc.
Also, please don’t just stay on this page. The rest of the site contains loads of different styles of piano music and does explain the different services that I can offer.
To hear examples of the different styles of music that I play, please visit the following pages:
