I will provide solo piano or piano and vocals for your event to make it fun, entertaining, or just straight up classy. I can provide background with light jazz, a more lively atmosphere with a heavier blues/jazz dance feel, or even an upbeat party feel with popular songs. I am always willing to learn new songs for events and I can also play along with other musicians for an event if they are provided. I am very easy to communicate with and willing to accommodate most any special requests. Please feel free to contact me about any musical opportunity as I am open to all types of gigs.
Joe not only came and did an incrediable job sight reading, but communicated several well thought out ideas and cues for the band. His jazz comping is tight, and great humor was extremely inviting. It was an absolute pleasure working with him.

What to Expect
I can provide background music or entertainment services through solo piano or piano and vocal performance in any of the following styles or combination of styles: jazz, blues, folk, musical theater, or pop. I will play any type of event in the Philadelphia area (I am occasionally in the NY/NJ area as well). I am willing to travel farther, if necessary, so please contact.
I am a current graduate student at Drexel University. I have a degree in physics and a minor in music from Lafayette College. I have played in jazz combos for formal and casual events for Lafayette College and private events. I currently perform with a blues band playing keyboard and main vocals and I have directed and performed with an a cappella group in the past.
I have been playing piano for 14 years but throughout my time in high school and college I focused specifically on jazz and blues piano. My singing began in musical theater and choirs but transitioned to blues as I began singing in a blues/folk group.
My musical influences mostly reveal themselves in my improvisation which can range from Ray Charles and Dr. John influenced blues playing to Bill Evans and Oscar Peterson influenced jazz.
If I am booked for an event I could play jazz standards, blues, popular party songs, classic or new folk music. I have a wide repertoire of music and influences which I can pull from and I am always willing to learn music.
Additional Booking Notes
I can provide keyboard, amplification, and vocal mic (if vocals are requested).
*Having a piano provided is preferred but not necessary.
