Description

Price from: £300

Jazz & Blues singer pianist Jeremy is one of the UK’s most in-demand singer/pianists. Either solo, or accompanied by his band, he’s been wowing audiences with his natural, soulful voice and a repertoire of his arrangements of jazz, blues and soul classics.

Jeremy can perfectly re-create the Jazz, Swing era, playing foot-tapping Sinatra or Bobby Darin classics, or the intimate atmosphere of a NY piano bar accompanied the sounds of Elton John, Billy Joel and Stevie Wonder, or capture; or even try the blues and soul of Ray Charles or the lilting sounds of Bob Marley

It’s for these reasons Jeremy plays at top locations in Manchester, London and the UK; The Shard, The Boisdale Club, The Cinnamon Club, The Arts Club, Claridges and the Dorchester Hotel. In addition, he has performed at iconic jazz venues such as the North Sea Jazz Festival, Ronnie Scotts Jazz Club, the 606 Jazz Club and The Jazz Café

In addition, he’s been picked to entertain by high end clients like the Americas Cup Sailing Regatta, the UEFA Champions League Final, Ralph Lauren, Hugo Boss, Manchester United, Visit Britain, NW Regional Tourism Awards, Selfridges, Kodak, KPMG and Shell UK

Jeremy says his secret is he treats all his gigs with the same respect no matter how big or small and because of this, his clients always tend to rebook him. He has already this year played for a dinner party for two and a concert hall for a thousand!

"Booking Jeremy as our wedding pianist was one of the best decisions we made!! He played whilst our guests arrived at the church and during the signing of the register and then again during the wedding breakfast. His repertoire is fantastic, his voice amazing and he really got everyone in such a happy mood. At some points he even had all of our guests singing along during dinner. A real wedding highlight!!

"Hi Paige - I've written one review for Jeremy but more than happy to write another in response to your email.

Jem is quite simply a gem!

He gave an absolutely fantastic performance - cool, subtle, punchy, emotive and he's clearly a brilliant professional artist. An extremely talented and charming guy both vocally and on the keys - and lovely with it.

He put up with my timings on the night which altered by the minute and everyone remarked upon the high calibre of his singing and playing.

I would recommend him for any occasion which requires someone who knows what they are about and has the skill, confidence and expertise to execute superb renditions and keyboard skills. For me he was playing at a private house party but I am certain he is equally at home in the larger arena.

Jeremy Sassoon deserves every success - thank you."

Jeremy Sassoon played at The Unsung Hero Awards 2018 on Friday the 23rd of February to an impressed audience. He was not only a great musician, who I had total faith in, but a very friendly and easy person to work with. He communicated with me leading up to the event and on the night itself he was prompt and set-up quickly. Jeremy played not only his two allocated sets, but extra songs when we had projector issues - it was not an issue for him! As soon as Jeremy started to play the room took on a new feel; warmer and more intimate. The MC of the night was so surprised to hear Jeremy sing that he mistook his voice for a recording - he is that professional sounding. My personal highlight of the night had to be when Jeremy was playing Hey Jude. He had the audience singing along and waving their arms in the air. He made sure to interact with the audience in a way that was personal, but not distracting. Jeremy uses his talent to make people feel at ease and doesn't overly-focus on himself - a rare quality in a person, as well as a performer. Jeremy made sure to inform us when he was leaving and I had a lovely chat with him post-performance. He thanked myself and my colleague for being equally easy to work with and gave up tips on what sorts of musical accompaniments would work well in the future. Would we hire Jeremy again? In a heartbeat. Only next time we hope to be able to have some of those musical accompaniments to enhance what was already a stellar performance, which made our event feel that little bit extra fantastic!

Jeremy played at our wedding in March 2018 along with his drummer. He was absolutely fantastic and made our wedding extra special. Having a live singer pianist and drummer was something a little different but our guests loved the music and Jeremy chose the perfect songs throughout the 3 hours. Thank you.

"I just want to thank you for the wonderful sound and ambience you created at our wedding; it was a beautiful start to the evening and, as the sun started to set on our big day, we couldn't have asked for a better transition to the night's events. Our guests loved the relaxed atmosphere and commented on the number of great songs you played. Thank you so much! Michael

"I've booked Jeremy for 4 private events including a family wedding. He just has that knack of ""hitting the right note"" every time. It's great to hear a variety of styles, and he's a lovely guy to deal with. I'd recommend him to anyone. But not on the same date I need him next time.
