Band to Join.

ABOUT

I've played dueling pianos full-time for the last 4+ years. It's increased my repertoire to several hundred popular songs, and I can do comedic bits, work a crowd, and get people to sing and drink. I just relocated to Los Angeles and am working on getting more dueling gigs, but I'm definitely open to solo and band work. I've played for nursing homes (standards and ethnic music), bars, weddings, fundraisers, and corporate and private events. I can work as a front man or blend into the background, playing keyboard parts and harmonizing. I enjoy many different kinds of music and don't want to give it up as my living!
