Dave was wonderful!

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.

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.

Keyboard Dave

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 30 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, especially Holiday music.

I also have a jazz duo: T.J. & Dave Jazz Duo: with a wonderful female jazz singer (TJ Graham) available to sing and play wonderful jazz and popular love songs for weddings and special events.

Other Musical Services Available:
Accompanist for soloists or groups
Church or Synagogue Organist
Piano or Organ Lessons

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 Fall/Holiday/Christmas weddings or events while dates are available!

Musically Yours,
Keyboard Dave
