Solo Piano

piano_2I’ve been playing solo piano in various forms for many years. From my naive beginnings playing soft rock at Cassidy’s Pizza Parlor as a teen and performing jazz standards at the iconic Sacramento hangout, Alhambra Fuel & Transportation Restaurant, to currently playing in restaurants and clubs around the local area—I’ve done a lot. (Read my blog post, Zen and the Art of Piano Bar for an introspective POV at this dying art.) I’ve also performed for special events for business openings, retirement or Christmas parties, automobile shows, and simple background music (a lot classier than a DJ).

Currently, I do a lot of solo piano and vocals, and my song list includes John Mayer, Jason Mraz, Coldplay, Norah Jones, John Legend, and Maroon 5, as well as some more classic pop tunes from Elton John, Steely Dan, James Taylor, and Eric Clapton. To hear a short demo, please click the following:
