Nigel Baines - Wedding Pianist & Vocalist

This Sussex pianist can be hired as a soloist or in a variety of combinations including professional jazz singer and/or instrumentalists as a duo, trio, quartet, quintet or jazz band.

A top quality, portable, digital piano and sound system is always available which can be played both outside (weather permitting!) and inside as required.
 
He is an atmospheric jazz pianist, composer and arranger based in East Sussex, who sets out to create a warm, background atmosphere whatever your event and plays a wide ranging repertoire to suit your special occasion specializing in wedding ceremonies, wedding and champagne receptions and, if required, can advise on wedding music.

The most popular approach is to have a wide repertoire of carefully selected, relaxing music with which most people are familiar.

A wedding is a coming together of family and friends who perhaps, not having seen each other for years, will want to chat in a relaxed environment, certainly at the beginning. The music should add to the occasion by remaining unobtrusively in the background and certainly below the level of conversation.

Relaxing, mellow dinner-jazz interspersed with romantic, popular songs allows conversation to flow comfortably and proves to be most popular with wedding parties.

Nigel Baines - Wedding Pianist & Vocalist Feedback

"He is a true professional always arriving well ahead of the start time. He is presentable and comfortable with the guests and plays a well chosen and varied selection of music to create and sustain a convivial and relaxed atmosphere throughout. He recently played alongside Rick Wakeman at my 70th birthday party which, thanks to them both, was an enormous success. Highly recommended!"
Ralph Gold, Director, Birmingham City FC

'We are both so pleased we booked you as the music you played created that extra ambience we were looking for both prior to and during the wedding breakfast. You were a pleasure to deal with, your assistance with our entrance music was appreciated and your piano playing was exemplary"
Steve Canning, Selsdon Park Hotel,
