Hello, I am a private party specialist and can provide you with elegant cocktail/dinner music as well as perform an interactive audience participation show with your guests. I would be delighted to perform either on your own piano or provide a realistic sounding digital piano. Whether it be in your home, a clubhouse, hospitality suite, or any venue seating up to 250 people I can provide the entire setup and be ready to go before the first guest arrives. You can trust me to work seamlessly with your caterers and make all pre-event planning/setup as transparent as possible. I am an expert at volume control, so you will never have to be concerned about your guests having to "talk over the music". My target audience is 45 and up, although the 20-somethings seem to get a kick out of this, too!
Performance area is COLORADO - metro Denver. Hotel room must be provided for all events occurring west of Blackhawk/Central City.
Please consider me as one of your options to enhance your event! Thanks, Larry
Tom LeRoux: Drummer/Singer for duo dance work
Juli Redson-Smith: female vocalist with theme costumes
My repertoire is best exemplified by Paul Shaeffer, bandleader on the David Letterman Show.
My onstage personality is a hybrid of Mark Twain, Garrisson Keillor (NPR Prairie Home Companion, Lake Wobegon Days) and Monty Python's Flying Circus.
What to Expect
Typical Gig Duration: 60 - 360 minutes
"Larry is always applying his lifetime of experience to the design of special acts that all have one common characteristic: the audience recognizes the music and enjoys remembering how much they liked those songs!"
A typical reaction to my act is:
"I had forgotten how many of these songs I knew! I had as much fun singing along as I had dancing to these tunes!"
Whether you are only 45, OR you remember what a 45 rpm is...
Whether you are only 33, OR you remember what a 33 rpm is...
this is an ideal act when you need to appeal to a multi-generational crowd while simultaneously dealing with the logistics mentioned above.
And…if you are 78…guess what? I’ve got you covered!
6 to 8 feet of space, approx 4 feet deep, one typical 3 prong electrical outlet.
If you want me to play outside then it would be great if I was under some kind of canopy in case it rains, as I am allergic to electrocution. Other than that, a 3 prong electrical outlet is all you need supply. My equipment has never blown a fuse at any event. So basically you are good to go, no worries.
30s, 40s, 50s, 60s, 70s mostly. Old time sing-along’s available on request.
Some Country as well.
The cocktail/dinner music is a wonderful collection of the best of instrumental hits, piano and otherwise. This has a very interesting effect on people while they are having dinner:
All of a sudden, tables are playing "name that tune" while they enjoy dinner!
Also, for vocals later on:
Gershwin/Porter, Frank / ratpack, early R&R, Beatles, Neil, Elton, Billy Joel, sing-along, i.e. the kind of thing you would want if you were in your ideal customized piano bar. I have done “dueling piano” rooms, so if you know about that then you can imagine the audience participation possibilities. My act is clean though: no blue material on the mic!!
