Description

Price from: £220

Lee plays modern pop, jazz standards and classical Piano. For weddings, parties and events. Accross the UK.

Biography

I have been playing the piano since I was 5 years old. I began my career on board Cruise ships at the age of 21, travelling and playing around the world for 5 years, working for Cunard, Royal Caribbean and Princess Cruises. I then moved back to land and started working in London's famous hotels and department stores where I gained residencies at The Lanesborough, Harrods and The Dorchester, where I've held a Pianist residency for over 10 years.

I specialise in wedding entertainment and I currently performcat over 100 weddings per year. I have my very own Baby Grand Piano Shell which has been specially designed to be fully portable to fit into any function room. It's also easily assembled within 30 minutes.

I play all types of music from contemporary modern songs to jazz and rat pack music - check out my repertoire for the full list. My playing is never overbearing or too noisy. I have finely tuned my art after years of playing at High/Afternoon Tea events, where sensitivity and beauty in playing is the essence.

We were put in touch with Lee through his agency and he immediately got in touch to establish what our event was, how many attending and the type of piano pieces we would like to hear. We were having a family party for 18 people at a rental house. It was my parents joint 90th birthday

Lee arrived on time and played fantastically well for an hour and a half. I’m convinced he would have gone on longer but dinner was to be served. The variety of his catalogue was fantastic and he appealed to all the family. Initially he played a variety of pieces from his repertoire. Then requests starting coming in and he played virtually all of them by ear. What turned out to be one or two requests quickly turned in a request show and Lee’s ability to hear a song/ piece in his head play it was breathtaking. His improvisation was quite astonishing. If you are thinking of hiring a pianist for an event look no further. He was simply amazing. One really emotional performance and a good guy to boot!! Ken Barclay

We recently used Alive Network to book Lee Matthews pianist to perform at our wedding on June 29th at The Haycock Hotel Wansford. Not only was the booking made with efficiency and precision but we were very impressed to be contacted by Mr Matthews in good time before the wedding to confirm our requirements, which made us feel very confident that all would go to plan. On the special day, Mr Matthews was superb - a true professional . His repertoire of tunes was extensive and provided the perfect background music to the wedding breakfast. Lee was very friendly and obliging and a pleasure to be in the company of. Not only would we not hesitate to use Alive Network and Lee Matthews again in the future but we would also highly recommend to friends.

Lee Matthews was fantastic on our wedding day. We are so happy with how he performed and constantly had a smile on his face. We had a lot of our guests coming up to us saying how brilliant he was. The music choices were so good and fit our wedding perfectly. I will certainly re-book Lee again if we have another event in the future. Big thank you to Lee for being part of our special day. Mr & Mrs Rodway

Lee was extremely professional and played beautifully for our wedding ceremony, drinks reception, and wedding breakfast! The communication beforehand was very good, and we worked out when he would be playing and when I would need music played via my iPad. I had asked him to play music from movies, and his selections were spot on. He was also very flexible with the three specific songs I requested for the various parts of the ceremony. Something happened during the processional and the bride's entrance where the songs didn't change as planned; however, I don't blame this on Lee, as the venue had him hidden around a corner where he couldn't see the people coming in. I think if we had touched base right before the ceremony we could have clarified things so that is the only thing that I would recommend for next time. Otherwise, absolutely loved Lee!

"Lee made our day pure class. From the moment he arrived to set up he put us at our ease & we realised what a professional Lee was/is. It was great to hear him playing in the hotel lobby while our guests arrived, he played the perfect mix of songs we’d asked to be included. He was great during the ceremony & for the drinks reception afterwards. Everyone loved his playing & his friendly approach to everyone who chatted to him. We could not recommend him enough to anyone who would be thinking of hiring him. We’re now just thinking of other occasions within the family where we’d love Lee to play. Cannot thank Lee & Alive Network enough. Andy & Nick
