Performing as a Pianist in Northamptonshire

My name is Eugene Portman and I obtain a lot of work as a pianist from the Northamptonshire area. Furthermore, I know quite a lot of other musicians who also get work from the area. This area provides a huge amount of work for many musicians and I am lucky to be one of them.

Northamptonshire has a very varied assortment of venues from hotels and golf clubs, to castles and country estates. I have played the piano at many of them, but I have many more to go.


Northamptonshire mainly provides me with work as a solo pianist, but I can provide other line-ups. In-fact, I can provide anything from a duo or a trio right up to a five-piece jazz band. Here are the line-ups I provide:

  • Duo – piano and vocals or piano and bass
  • Trio – piano, bass and vocals or piano, bass and drums
  • Quartet – piano, bass, drums and vocals or piano, bass, drums and sax
  • Five Piece Jazz Band – piano, bass, drums, sax and vocals

Please do not hesitate to contact me if you need help choosing a suitable line-up for your event.

The Music

Some of my work in Northamptonshire is as a classical pianist. This can range from a few pieces for a wedding ceremony, to an entire evening. I love this style of music but it isn’t always right for every event. Fortunately, I play many different genres and this helps make my music more versatile. Making it suitable for all types of events, including weddings. The styles of music I play include jazz, swing, classical, blues, Latin, rock, pop, ragtime, and sing-a-long.

My main speciality is music from the jazz and swing era, but don’t let the word jazz scare you off. The jazz I play is not ultra-modern but consists of great tunes that we all know and love. In fact, I play music that was performed by the likes of Nat King Cole, Frank Sinatra, and Tony Bennet. My piano style has developed by listening to the great jazz pianists of the past. These include such musicians such as George Shearing, Oscar Peterson, Erroll Garner, and Dudley Moore.

My Work as Singalong pianist in Kent

I’ve noticed a growing trend to book me as a sing-a-long pianist, especially in the Northamptonshire area. This is something quite new for me and I have really enjoyed every sing–along session I have played for so far. If you are looking at hiring me for this sort of thing, I provide everything you need. That is, all song sheets, piano, PA system, and I will arrive suitably attired as a typical Cockney pianist. All you have to provide an enthusiastic audience.
