I provide the perfect musical backdrop for your special event. I play a blend of Jazz, Classical and Beatle tunes to create a beautiful atmosphere for any occasion. I am happy to discuss any special musical needs you may have for your event ahead of time. For weddings, it's always best to have the bride and groom determine what music they want for the ceremony well before the big day. That way everyone knows what to expect and plan for. If you have any ??? of me, I would be glad to answer them.
Zenon did a fabulous job at our wedding! He plays beautifully and is such a nice person. So glad to have him as part of our special day!
Response from Zenon Slawinski - Solo Piano:
Thank you so much for the kind words Morgan. It was a beautiful wedding and I was honored to be a part of it.
Price Range: $100 and up
Gig Length: 30 - 180 minutes
What to Expect
Depending on the venue and event, I prefer to setup ahead of time and do a sound check to make sure the audio levels and instrument placement is to everyone's satisfaction. If there are any special requests by the venue, event planner, or wedding party those should be discussed well ahead of time for clarity and assurance about expectations.
Zenon has been playing musical instruments since a young child. He excelled at the accordion growing up in Michigan. In addition to the accordion Zenon played the violin and bassoon. While in college he learned how to play the Carillon. He graduated with Honors from the University of Michigan in Music Theory. He moved to Washington, DC and played the Carillon at the National Zoo for many years.
Zenon is also a composer. He has written music for films, radio and theatre. Most notably he co-wrote the music to the John McLaughlin Group political talk shows.
He plays regularly Sunday's at Oakbrook Church in Reston, VA. With his wife Karin, who plays flute and alto sax, they have performed for many weddings in the area. Karin and Zenon are also members of Accidental Red, a jazz band consisting of a female vocalist, bass and drums. They play regularly around the DC area.
Additional Booking Notes
My requirements are minimal. I can come and play on your piano (if it's in tune) or I can play on my portable setup. I have an amplified electric Yamaha P-155 piano (gorgeous grand piano sound) with stand and bench. When necessary I bring my Roland K-350 amplifier. If Karin joins me on flute (or alto saxophone) she plays into a mic (which I provide). That goes into the amplifier. All that we need is an electrical outlet. We can discuss any other venue requirements, if any, ahead of the performance.
