How many breaks do you take? How long are they?
For solo piano performances, minimal breaks would be required. During 2 - 3 hours' play, approximately 15 - 20 minutes break.
For duo / vocal performances, one break of at least 15 minutes in between 2 sets would be required.
My favourite tune is not on your list. Will you be able to play it?
Pete has been playing piano for almost 40 years and is able to perform a very wide variety or music across multiple musical genres including classical, ragtime, jazz, blues, rock ‘n’ roll, rock, soul, pop, Latin, folk, indie, alternative, T.V and film music and so on. His repertoire covers literally thousands of songs from hundreds of years’ worth of music and it is constantly being added to. He can often source the sheet music for any published piece of music. Even where sheet music does not exist, Pete can also create his own arrangement of any tune that has a strong melody and is feasible to play on the piano.
If you have any requests for specific songs to be played at a Wedding, Function or other Event, please get in touch with your requirements.
Often, it is the case that tunes can be performed with little notice.
How much space do you require?
For solo piano engagements where Pete provides the digital piano equipment, he would need approximately 3m x 3m, plus power points.
For duo engagements, there would naturally be a requirement for a wider space, to accommodate a PA, speakers, guitars, mixing desk etc.
Do you have Public Liability Insurance and PAT tested equipment?
Do you have your own PA and lighting?
When performing solo piano engagements, Pete can provide suitable keyboard amplification appropriate to the venue.
When performing in a duo with vocals, a PA would be used with lighting.
How long do you play for?
Pete can provide solo piano music up to around 3 hours or more if required
When working with a singer, a duo or trio would usually provide 2 x 45 minute sets - more by arrangement
