I am a solo pianist in the Washington DC area. For the last 20 years I have played in a variety of settings: weddings, corporate events and private parties. I have a very varied repertoire including pop, jazz and classical pieces. I always try to play music appropriate to the gig, the setting, the age group etc. If you want live, beautiful music at your event, I would love to play it for you.

Response from George Gerich:
This was the one and only time that I have been late in ten years. The gig was during rush hour in the heart of the city with long traffic jams. I apologize.
His piano playing was superb.
Response from George Gerich:
One of the best sounding pianos that I've played. All the registers/octaves equally balanced and light to the touch. Squeaky pedal needs WD-40. It was a pleasure.
George did a great job!
George was perfect - prompt and professional
George is fabulous- absolutely fabulous, and so very talented.
Response from George Gerich:
Thank you, Maria, it's always nice to be appreciated.
George arrived on time and played beautifully. I would book him again.
George was a wonderful addition to our New Years Eve party. He provided excellent live music, interacted with the kids and adults alike, and very open to requests. I would highly recommend George, and will use him for future gatherings.
George was wonderful at our Christmas party. Our guests immediately felt welcome with George playing beautifully as they entered our home.
Several guests offered compliments on the extra touch of having George playing the piano and he delighted guests with a wide range of music.
Thank you for making our party such fun!
George Gerich's piano playing was a wonderful addition to our Christmas sing-along. Guests keep raving about his music.
George was a very accommodating and talent pianist. He played a wide range of music genres throughout our party and happily accompanied us while we sang Christmas carols.
George is a very talented pianist and a wonderful entertainer.
He turned our holiday office party into a fabulous, memorable evening.
George totally made my birthday party perfect - he is extremely talented, has a great personality and is very engaging. I would hire him again for any event I have in the future. Have George at your party - your party will be a memorable one!
What to Expect
Whatever the event or the audience, I try to play to what would be appropriate to the setting and the ambiance of the situation. I have a very wide repertoire to handle most requests by various age groups. My intention is to always do my best in presenting music which is familiar and beautiful!
I've been involved in music my entire life. I began classical piano lessons at seven. As a teenager I formed my first pop group. I soon discovered jazz music and went to Boston to study at the Berklee College of Jazz. Later I was a member of various ensembles in Boston and New York. The last 30 years I have been performing as a solo pianist in and around Washington DC.
Additional Booking Notes
I always prefer playing the piano while facing, in some degree, the audience.
