Keyboard Dave is an experienced and versatile Pianist, Organist, and One-Man-Band in the Atlanta GA and Athens GA areas who can play all styles of music from current hits to cocktail hour jazz to a full band sound for dancing to classical for that elegant wedding. Keyboard Dave will make every song come alive with feeling and emotion and will create a memorable music experience for your Special Event, Wedding (ceremony, cocktail hour or reception), Party, Corporate Reception, Church Service or Social Gatherings of all types and sizes. Keyboard Dave has a very large repertoire numbering in the thousands! Please call or email to discuss your music needs and pricing that fits your budget.
Keyboard Dave was hired to play piano at our Engagement Cocktail Party. It was held at a fancy series of club rooms and Dave's music elevated the sophistication of our event greatly! He worked ahead of time on the music selections we requested (Cole Porter/Irving Berlin songbook, Vince Guaraldi, softer Elton John selections, Titanic song) and made the party extremely enjoyable for all the guests.
Here's a great example of Dave's depth of music selections. Without being requested, I noticed that Dave played some incidental music from the movie "Casablanca". It was a quiet piece from a scene between Humphrey Bogart and piano player Dooley Wilson where Bogart asks "What are you playing there?" The reply by Wilson, "Just a little something I've been working on."
Dave had a great attitude and was extremely professional. He asked if we preferred Jacket and Tie or Turtleneck. We chose the former, but were pleasantly surprised when he wore a bow tie, not the necktie that I assumed he would wear.
Dave's knowledge of music, great attitude and extremely high work ethic shined brightly during the three hours that he played at our event. If you hire Keyboard Dave for your event, you won't regret it! WELL DONE!
Response from Keyboard Dave:
Thanks Thomas for the great review! It was certainly my pleasure and honor to play songs from such great composers as Porter, Berlin, Gershwin, Guaraldi, for you and your guests. Best wishes to you and your fiancée!
He did an amazing job - all of the songs were perfect and the ceremony could not have been any better!
Response from Keyboard Dave:
Thanks Braxton! Glad that I could make your special wedding day even more special :).
We loved having Dave play for our cocktail party! He came from out-of-town to play for us arriving on time and ready to entertain us. His music definitely added ambiance to our party and many of our guests loved his choice of musical pieces. We gave him a list of some of our favorite songs (which varied in style) as an idea and he took our list and ran with it. Many of our guests said they would think of a song and a few minutes later, he would be playing it. Having him play was one of the best parts of the evening. Money well spent!
We really enjoyed having Keyboard Dave play at our Wedding event this past weekend! Definitely recommend. We will be using him again soon!
Response from Keyboard Dave:
Thanks so much for the review! It was a pleasure working with you to pick just the right music for your mom's wedding day. Looking forward to playing for you and your family again in the future :).
David did a great job. People loved him and his music!
Dave was flawless!! Everyone commented on how they wanted him to play longer. I would highly recommend Dave to play at your wedding or any event.
We booked Keyboard Dave only about 10 days before our event because we were in a bit of a time crunch. Dave was so professional, we reviewed all of our needs through email, and he was very receptive to my wife's day of plans and order of service. Anything we asked, Dave provided and we would highly recommend his services. Dave, thank you so much for helping make our wedding day the best day of our lives!!
This was an emergency gig. Dave came through for me at the very last minute. He learned the songs, and was ready to roll the next day. Great personality very patient, great guy to work with.
Our experience with Keyboard Dave was outstanding! He is a very talented and experienced pianist! Dave worked with us in selecting our best song list in advance of the event and he arrived early to set up and rehearse the accompanied numbers. Dave was reliable, adaptable, and accommodating. I highly recommend Keyboard Dave!
Dave played a great assortment of contemporary and classic holiday music, and made our Christmas Eve dinner party a complete success! Thanks Dave!
Dave was well liked and played well. He was well prepared. Everything you need for a fill in pianist for our worship service!
Dave provided a wide variety of Christmas holiday music for my holiday dinner party! My guests were delighted and thoroughly enjoyed all of Dave's song choices. Dave was very professional and arrived on time and was very pleasant to me and our guests. Will definitely contact Dave for my next occasion.
Dave went to great lengths to take care of my sis's 80th birthday party. Before the event he made sure he had a playlist of ALL of the music she liked, and the group would enjoy. And, he is quite talented.
Keyboard Dave was great. He showed up early for set up. He played appropriate tasteful music and modulated the volume for the mood of the event. I would both recommend and hire him again if I ever need someone with his musical talents and classy persona. Keyboard Dave is a true professional in every way.
Very professional. Added greatly to the gathering
Keyboard Dave was very accommodating when I asked him to not only play the Throne Room song from Star Wars A New Hope, but when I asked him to shorten the piece to play as my wedding march, he did so and did so perfectly! It fit just right!
Dave played for our dinner event and for the program following with great professionalism. His play list is very good for a long evening, and he was very willing to incorporate special requests which we provided ahead of time. He even very skillfully led the crowd of over 150 on the piano as we sang two songs with gusto! Could not be more pleased with our pianist for the evening!
We hired Dave to play for our holiday shopping event in our jewelry boutique. He was awesome!! He arrived on time; took short breaks and not often so that the music was going constantly. We most definitely use him again and refer him to people.
Amazing musician!! Dave was extremely polite and professional. He learned a new song for our ceremony with only a few days notice. I would highly recommend to anyone and will definitely use him for other events
ABSOLUTELY FANTASTIC! IF ANYONE WANTS FEEDBACK ON KEYBOARD DAVE I WOULD BE GLAD TO RECOMMEND HIM WITH THE HIGHEST DEGREE OF SATISFACTION. MORE THAN EXCEEDED OUR EXPECTATIONS AND WAS A TREMENDOUS HIT WITH OUR 50 GUESTS! TOTALLY PROFESSIONAL AND FANTASTIC POSITIVE PERSONALITY. REVEREND THOMAS JOHNSON
I would recommend David for any event. He played at our wedding ceremony and was fantastic. All of my guests kept going on and on about how much they enjoyed the pop love songs he played. He made our ceremony much more memorable.
David played at our daughter's wedding ceremony. David was prompt, professional, an excellent pianist, and competitively priced! I would definitely recommend him and would call him again if our plans require a pianist.
David is a very talented pianist. He played a very eclectic list of songs for my daughter's wedding. From classical to a popular tv theme song his experience and ability to play many styles was amazing. He was also very professioanl in all areas.
My goal since an early age has been to entertain. I started piano lessons at age 6 and have continued playing my whole life, becoming increasingly more proficient through high school, honing my skills in recitals, high school plays, family gatherings, nursing homes, church and in several bands. I graduated from Nyack College, studying classical and jazz piano and classical organ, gaining a new-found confidence in my ability to perform all styles and genres of music.
For the past 35 years I have entertained at restaurants, parties, special events and in churches in the New Jersey/ New York City areas, and now in the Atlanta, GA and Athens, GA areas and across the Southeastern U.S.
I love to make people happy through my music. I have been told that I have a uniquely inspired way of playing that touches the hearts of those who listen. From elegant solo piano for background music to set the mood, to a full band sound for dancing, to classical, religious or current love songs for your wedding, I play it all.
My repertoire numbers in the thousands and includes the following genres: Cocktail-Jazz-Standards-Holiday & Wedding music- Broadway Showtunes-Current Pop music- and Classical and Inspirational music, all played in my own unique style. I will also take requests and have a portable piano with background accompaniment and a synthesizer available if needed, or I will play your instrument.
I love performing as a One-Man-Band and to watch people come into the room thinking that 3 or 4 musicians are performing. My up-tempo selections are very danceable as well as my slow-dance selections. I have an assortment of audience participation numbers, or if needed, sing alongs.
Other Musical Services Available:
Accompanist for soloists or groups
Church or Synagogue Organist
Once again, I would be happy to talk to you about my rates and how I can help make your special event a memorable one. Or send me an email for more information and a listing of songs.
Book me now for your holiday gatherings and Spring/Summer weddings, while dates are available!
