My Work as a Pianist in Suffolk
My name is Eugene Portman and I always look on myself as being lucky when I’m booked as a pianist in Suffolk. It isn’t far for me to travel to and there seems to be quite a demand for wedding pianists – especially in Woodbridge. The county has some beautiful venues and quite a lot of weddings take place in the county. I play the piano for quite regularly at Butley Priory, near Woodbridge, but I also provide music for a number of other venues that are scattered throughout the county. Here are just a few where I have performed:
The Black Lion, The Green, Long Melford, Suffolk CO10 9DN
Bedford Lodge Hotel, Bury Road, Newmarket
Hintlesham Hall Hotel, Hintlesham, Ipswich, Suffolk IP8 3NS
Ravenwood Hall Hotel, Rougham, Bury St Edmunds
Otley Hall, Hall Lane, Otley, Ipswich, Suffolk IP6 9PA
Butley Priory, Near Woodbridge
RAF Honington, Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk
A lot of my work in Suffolk is as a solo pianist, but I can provide other line-ups. hese line-ups range from duos and trios right up to a five-piece jazz band. Here is the full range of line-ups available.
- 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
I am often booked in the Suffolk area as classical pianist for wedding ceremonies and other events. However, I do play a wide variety of music and I also provide music for other events such as private parties, store openings and other corporate work. The styles of music I play include jazz, swing, classical, rock, pop, latin, ragtime and sing-a-long.
I often play the piano for events and parties in Suffolk where people want to have a sing-song. I can now provide a series of song sheets for this. More information and the song sheets can be seen on the sing-a-long page. Also, please make sure that you explore the rest of the site to hear different styles of music and the various services that I can offer.
