I play a high energy piano bar show that is request driven and audience engaging. The goal is to let the crowd run the show and have a great time singing along to all of their favorite songs.
Patrick is an incredible talent. His singing and piano playing are on a very high level and his ability to engage the crowd and work a room are unmatched. He gives his best performance every night. And he has a quick wit and great sense of humor. Saw him on a Carnival cruise. The late night piano bar crowd was great with Patrick at the helm! Great job Patrick.
The piano bar was by far the best experience from my cruise because of the talent and energy that Patrick had. He was extremely friendly to everyone in the bar and was tons of fun! Patrick has great musical talent, can relate with others, knows how to keep the energy up and is actually very funny! In the future I would for sure come back to see Patrick, it was a great night of music, dancing and laughs!
Saw Patrick on a recent cruise; he was the best musician on the ship! We spent almost every night sitting at his piano singing songs and doing toasts. Pure entertainment!

What to Expect
Singing along, Comedy
I taught myself to play the piano when I was 13 and got my first job as a musician that same year playing for my church. I knew I wanted to be a performer from that age on. My greatest achievement in high school was getting accepted to a college music program without having formal piano lessons. After college I held a series of jobs as a piano teacher and audio visual technician until I was hired by Carnival Cruise Line as a show band musician. I was promoted, by Carnival, to a Piano Bar Entertainer position after my first contract and am currently taking a few months off to tour the U.S. as the Assistant Music Director for the FLASHDANCE National tour (A Broadway musical based on the hit 80's movie).
My real passion is as a piano entertainer though, which brought me to this site to promote myself for when I'm between ship and touring contracts. My show is high energy and uses comedy and blue humor to keep the audience engaged and entertained. I also do roasts for people who are celebrating special events (birthdays, weddings.....) and I play a wide range of music.
