I am a professional solo pianist, singer and accompanist. I recently bought a Kawaii ES7 digital piano which I can bring to your
event if you don't have a piano already. It costs $2000, but has the most true piano sound you will ever hear. I like to lead sing a longs, sing solos, and play a variety of styles, current pop, classical and Jazz are included. I am a real pianist, classically trained with clear technique and always have an clear expressive connection to what I am playing. Whatever you prefer, background instrumental, vocals or sing a long song leader, I can provide the role you need for your party or event. Any songs you want, just tell me, I will bring them to play for you.
Larry was great to work with and always professional. He really listed to what kind of music I wanted for my party unlike some who just play what they know. During the party he talked to my guests and took requests and made the party a lot more fun. He has a great personality and mixed with my guess well. He already had most of the songs I wanted played and found the sheet music for any songs he did not already have. He can play anything you want as long as he can get the sheet music. Hire him for your party. You'll be glad you did!
“Larry Evans and I recently collaborated on a cabaret evening that was a very successful, sold out event. The show encompassed a variety of musical styles which Larry had complete command of from classical to Musical Theatre, rock, blues and jazz. I feel fortunate to have worked with someone as competent and professional as Larry Evans."

What to Expect
On time, or early to set up of course. Well dressed and organized. I can help with the sound and adjust to situations that arise. I can play
later if need be and will play requests to the best of my ability. I love to meet people and share music with them and create an atmosphere with music that helps people to relax.
