Other Band Work
Deputy pianist for various prestigious outfits
Various live recordings taken from gigs can be found below.
In addition to the above band work, solo background piano can be perfect for any event which may require that warming atmosphere and added stylistic touch. I regularly play background piano at various top class establishments, including ‘The Cherry Tree’ Restaurant, and The Vermont Hotel in Newcastle. This fits the atmosphere perfectly. Of course when requested, a background or even stage performance jazz duo to quintet could easily be arranged, and this can really give any type of event a bit of life/atmosphere!
I also offer teaching for any of my given services. I have worked with Egglescliffe School on the Music Technology A Level, working with the students on various production modules, and also teach jazz piano at the prestigious Mick Donnelly Academy.
