It's your special day. Everything must be perfect. Your dress, the setting, the colors, the food, the wine, and the music!
That's where I come in. I specialize in creating the right ambience, whether the crowd is getting a little energetic, or they would enjoy some quiet conversation. I can step to the side or take center stage at the drop of a hat.
Since weddings usually include family members from several generations, my repertoire includes pop standards from the 1920's to today (Gershwin, Cole Porter, Henry Mancini, Billy Joel, Burt Bacharach, for example), country music, classical, swing and jazz, and rock and dance music suitable for all ages. I can play solo piano (with or without vocals), or bring along some of my musical colleagues to create an ensemble of 2 to 6 musicians.
I also play pipe organ for wedding ceremonies, and am currently the organist for St. Alban's Episcopal Church in Tillamook, Oregon.
Solo rates begin at $75 for the first hour, $50 each hour after that, if a piano and sound system is provided. I also have my own sound system and electric piano which I can provide for a flat cartage rate of $50 for the day. An ensemble of musicians varies according to the size of the group.
