With a vast repertoire encompassing many styles, my ability to adapt for each engagement will enhance your special occasion.
Paul Smith has been performing piano at weddings professionally for a number of years. He also caters for birthday parties, anniversaries and corporate events etc.
I usually perform on my own excellent Yamaha digital piano with a PA system (and only require a plug point) but am happy to play any piano provided by you or the the venue provided it is in good working order.
The volume of particularly amplified music is often of some concern. I specialise in playing music that you can listen to and talk over. If you find the volume is still unacceptable, please let me know. It will not be a problem!
With many hours of music committed to memory, the repertoire is varied, huge and often updated. Although I can play most styles of music, I do enjoy playing ballads and jazzy swing music. Nat King Cole, Sinatra, Gershwin, Elton John, Lionel Richie, Queen, Abba, Van Morrison, Beatles the list goes on and on. Other repertoire is made up from jazz, blues, film, show music, some classical and even tunes from the Disney and Pixar films (including Frozen! for the younger guests.)
If you would like to hear something in particular I will do my best to carry out your request although given notice, I should be able to learn it.
