Why hire Nigel Bellis - Romantic Latin, Jazz, Fusion.?
Nigel Bellis and his players provide cool, sophisticated original instrumental music for a discerning audience - ideally suited to corporate events, private parties, wine festivals and upscale hotels.
They recently performed at a mansion wedding in Bowie, MD.
Nigel Bellis is a well known British composer and pianist based in Silver Spring, Md.
He provides a fusion of sounds and rhythms often with a lush, laid back romantic vibe...Tango, Rumba, Latin, Jazz, Cuban, Chill, Bolero, Gypsy...
Ideal for background music, but also available for a true performance with energetic songs featuring elaborate percussion and rhythms and at times a full orchestral sound!
Listeners often say that Nigel Bellis's music sounds like it came off a romantic movie soundtrack - and that's no coincidence.
For the last 20 years he has combined his work as a successful TV producer with writing music for many of the various shows he has worked on.
These days he tends to concentrate on creating songs with a contemporary feel in a fusion of styles....a hint of tango, rumba, bolero, smooth jazz, Cuban, flamenco....
His music is designed to evoke a number of thoughts - of romance in far flung places, sun-drenched picturesque villages, a quiet day at the beach, and an exciting late night party somewhere in Latin America.
Nigel performs with 2,3,or 4 additional musicians and offers competitive pricing.
He has recently released two albums: The Golden Age of Latin Romance / Latin, Jazz and Chill.
"It's a sophisticated and passion-filled sound for a mature audience, and ideal for those who like to take to the dance floor with their partners," explains Nigel.
2012 marks Nigel's return to live performance.
