Mike Garrett

Why book Mike Garrett?

Solo pianist specializing in very familiar popular selections from the 60's through the 1990's. Private parties and dinners, weddings or fine dining restaurants have found that my services add just the right touch to their occasions without going 'over the top'. No hip hop, rap or R&B (unless requested).

Mike Garrett

Starting as a gospel and pop keyboard player with bands and choirs, I've been playing for over 52 years; 4, as a soloist. Alanner can expect "light entertainment" not intended to be the highlight of the event, but appropriate background music while guests converse and/or dine. 100% of the songs played will be easily recognizable by guests al all ages. Examples include material by Billy Joel, The Beatles, Nora Jones, Roberta Flack, Paul Simon and Bill Withers. Movie themes such as "Chariots of Fire", "The Entertainer" ( from The Sting ), "As Time Goes By", "The Sound of Music" are also part of the 100 selections in my popular repetoire. The event planner will need to provide the piano. I am prepared to play for at least 3 hours with minimal breaks no longer than 10 minutes.
