Lou Montelione

Why book Lou Montelione?

When you need the best pianist for your party, look no further. With decades of experience playing every kind of music in every type of venue, you can't go wrong. My specialty is head boppin', finger poppin' jazz that really gets the party going, but for more subdued situations such as formal dinners an unobtrusive tender touch is guaranteed. When you need more than just piano, my band "Too Blue Lou And The Groove" or any part of it, is also available. Check us out here at GigSalad.com/TooBlueLou. I appreciate your interest and hope to hear from you.

Hi Lou

Yes, your work was outstanding. Your promptness, professionalism, and expertise in your instrument were very up to date and perfect for my wife’s party. I would definitely recommend highly. Thanks again.

Lou, we just wanted to thank you and your associate on the sax for your great music on a very cold and wintry night last month!.

Besides enjoying your music, we were very pleased with your professionalism, attire and overall attitude / demeanor. We were concerned that we would have a problem due to the weather, but without me saying a word, you and your associate not only were on time, but from what I understand very, very early to ensure that there we be no problem.

You are a class act, and we look forward to seeing you in aught nine!

...a very impressive effort that helps define and stretch the boundaries of today's modern mainstream jazz.

– Scott Yanow

...an unpretentious and competent post-bopper who has plenty to say and proceeds directly to the business at hand, which is making lovely music that swings.

– Jack Bowers

...the evening was made more memorable by the fine musical performance of Lou Montelione and Michael Logan. They are gifted artists and their skillful playing, coupled with intellient musical selections added a dimension of subtle sophistication that was a perfect complement to the general atmosphere.

– Louis Rizzo

What this exceptional performer brings to the keyboard is a deft touch, a refined approach, and a modern jazz sound that is tuneful, attractive, full of verve, and steeped in the jazz tradition without being a slave to its conventions.
