Profile: Simon is widely regarded as one of the top wedding pianists within the South West of England. He can be heard regularly performing his repertoire of pieces from The Great American Songbook in many of Devon and Cornwall’s top hotels, whilst his original compositions have been performed at Jazz Festivals within the UK and broadcast on radio stations worldwide.
Simon is able to offer a variety of options to suit your needs and budget. This includes either solo Jazz, Popular or Light Classical piano pieces, or with a band of a size to suit you…. anything from a duo with Saxophone/ Double Bass or Trumpet to a ‘small’ Big Band!
Simon has a wide musical repertoire and will work with you to achieve the mood and tempo appropriate to your event. He can provide ‘easy listening’ background music for your drinks reception or dinner and also more ‘up tempo’ music with a group to get everyone dancing afterwards.
An associate of the Royal College of Music, Simon has been involved in promoting music throughout Devon and Cornwall as both an educator and performer for many years. Equally at home in all music genres, Simon’s first love is jazz. Simon is also an accomplished classical player. He has recorded in 2015 a special classical music sampler which you can enjoy below this profile, followed by the jazz classic ‘September in the Rain’.
” I wanted to let you know how much I appreciated your lovely piano playing and singing at my birthday dinner. Everybody commented on how good you were and what a wonderful bonus it was to have you, so I’d just like to once more say a huge thank-you for helping make my special evening so memorable. I’m delighted we found you, you were everything I was hoping for to give the evening that extra special something! I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend you!”
