#1 GIGMASTERS USA PIANO PLAYER for 2012! Five years in a row!!!! ***** 2008 , 2009, 2010, 2011 and 2012 GigMasters Rising Star Award ***** REVIEWS...# I honestly could not be more pleased with our experience with 1234 Live Music (JP Daine). Our members who attended the New Year's Eve Gala were so pleased with the variety of music played and the excellence with which it was performed. The band members are each so talented, but are also truly dynamic performers. Their charisma, enthusiasm and skill made this year's event the absolute best ever. I had requests to rebook the band before their first break of the evening, and I look forward to working with J.P. and his band again.- Stacy D. #JP Daine performed at our wedding, and did an absolutely masterful job. We requested 3 challenging pieces for the ceremony, and he practiced for months beforehand to learn them. He is clearly a master at both classical and jazz piano, and deserves great credit for being able to transcend the genres. Furthermore, he was very easy to work with and a consummate professional, and he traveled from Houston to Austin without an additional fee. We had a number of musicians in the audience and all of them loved his playing. The result was a splendid performance that complemented our wedding perfectly. I recommend him heartily to anyone looking for a pianist at an event. -- Scott M, Austin, TX, 8/8/2010
# JP Daine was absolutely fantastic! He, along with a vocalist he recommended, performed during the cocktail hour and dinner of my wedding reception. Everyone was BLOWN away by their talent! People are still commenting on how great they were!! Booking JP was one of the best things I did--it made my wedding reception even more memorable and fun! Thanks JP! -- Keisha S, Houston, TX, 6/26/2010
#When asked about the nights highlights, 98% said"THE PIANIST"! He garnered thunderous applause,standing ovations&sheer amazement. JP delivered EXACTLY what I asked&more! He is outstanding! There is no better pianist,maybe Stevie Wonder! Classical, Beyonce & Kanye West WOW. One of the best decisions I made. JP gives you significantly MORE than what you pay 4, I believe I still owe him. Teenagers were asking 4 his # for their parties & adults! 2 say we enjoyed JP is an understatement. We relished in his performance&the tunes still linger. Thanks 4 your passionate piano playing performance you showed you cared about my special night as much as I. Mr & Mrs Brown -- Tammi M, Houston, TX, 2/14/2010
# JP, you are the best! You are completely professional, the other performers you chose were amazing and your group completely made my wedding celebration. We just loved everything you all did, from the beautiful music you played at the ceremony to the wonderfully fun music you played at the reception. I can't wait to have another event so you can perform. -- Alan K, Houston, TX, 11/27/2010.***
JP is one of the most talented musicians that I've had the pleasure of knowing. Not only does he have an extensive repertoire, but his arrangements are superb. Besides being an excellent pianist, you can always depend on JP to select the best musicians and vocalists for his band. Whatever type of music our employees liked, JP could play it. He and his band are truly accomplished musicians. -Brad T, Houston, TX (gig ID# 821399)
