Book a Pianist/Keyboardist for Party Entertainment
You may want to book a Pianist/Keyboardist for a private party! A Pianist can add a relaxing atmosphere and the guests can still hear each-others conversations! It would really put some swing into your party if you choose a cocktail Pianist as your entertainment. Imagine the mellow moods as they gently run through dazzling piano standards such as ‘Misty’, ‘Over the rainbow’, Frank Sinatra’s ‘Fly me to the moon’ and Elton John’s ‘Daniel’. If you’re concerned that you do not have enough room at your venue for an up right piano, then a Keyboard Player may be the perfect option for you.
How much do Pianists/Keyboardists cost to hire?
Our simple to use entertainment directory allows you to firstly search for the best Pianists and Keyboardists who are local (or travel to your area) and then via the contact form you may message them directly to enquire for a no obligation quote to perform at your event. Some acts will also add a rough price guide to their profile for your convenience.
What are the usual set formats and performance length for Pianists/Keyboardists?
The set formats for Pianists and Keyboard Players can vary from short sets (averaging from 15-25 minutes) to mid sets (averaging 45 minutes first half - 45 minutes 2nd half) and longer sets (averaging 1 hour for the first half - and 1 hour for the 2nd half) This will usually depend on the type of event you are hosting.
How much space will a Pianist/Keyboardist need at your event?
If you are hosting a cocktail party, then it may be worth hiring a Piano Player with a full up-right piano. If this is the case then they will need a fair amount of space because the standard width of an up-right piano alone is 5 feet. Alternatively, a Keyboard Player may be the best option for you as they can move around with relative ease. We advise to contact the musician them selves and enquire as they will often know more when it comes to what space they need to preform.
What equipment and set up requirements do Pianists/Keyboardists need?
Most Keyboardists and Pianists will be self-sufficient and will not require any extras to aid them with entertaining you. However, this can vary with each musician and by what type of show they are offering. It’s worth mentioning that a Keyboardist may need a PA and mixing desk, or an amplifier. Again, we would advise to contact the Keyboardist via our personal messaging service to find out more.
