Stephen Kingsbury - Pianist / Keyboardist - UK, South East Event Location: The White Hart, Hingham, Norfolk 22nd April 2017
We were both impressed and very appreciative of the effort that you went to in order to ensure that the 'singalong' at my mother's birthday party was a success. You had been so helpful prior to the event that it came as no surprise to us that you 'went the extra mile' for us on the evening. Your piano playing and singing were a joy to listen to. We hope to have an occasion when we can use your services again. With thanks again and very best wishes, Tony (and Rita of course). (10 / 10)

Stephen was Amazing. I am not sure who enjoyed it more myself and my guests or Stephen as he had a Steinway Grand Piano to play. He played great mix of songs and was very happy to accommodate my song choices. Several of my friends found themselves singing along, from the young to the old. (10 / 10)

He was perfect, personable and won the praise of many of my guests. Stephen was flexible to the needs of the evening and was committed to ensuring the music complemented the event. We would absolutely recommend him! (10 / 10)

Experience

I have almost thirty years experience playing in restaurants, lounges and bars for weddings, parties, corporate events and all sorts of other special occasions. In addition, I have also spent considerable time playing on cruise ships around the globe. My repertoire includes light jazz, well-known classical pieces, musical theatre and classic modern pop hits. I will happily tailor these styles to suit your occasion, your tastes and requests. I prefer to play a well-tuned real piano if possible but I do have a great sounding digital piano if necessary.
