Trifonics is an outstanding flute and strings trio with unimaginable performance skills. Being in the UK's premier league of classical musicians, these three ladies have performed on stages all around the world.

As an accomplished saxophonist and pianist, I've been fortunate to play all over the world for artists including the Supremes, the Temptations, Nick Heyward from Haircut 100, Curiosity Killed the Cat, and the Drifters. As well as being an instrumentalist I also sing in a relaxed and swinging style. I perform regularly at the Celtic Manor Resort and my experience as a musical director includes several years with Carnival Cruises and as bandleader at the London Hilton on Park Lane.

What people say about the UK Pianists:
Niké played at our wedding on Friday 24th June at Botleys Mansion, Surrey. She was amazing, her voice is truly fantastic and her piano skills, faultless. To come down the stairs and walk down the aisle to the lovely dulcet tones of Nike (which our guests had been enjoying in a pre-ceremony reception already) was amazing, and when she launched into our ceremony songs, so touching, so beautifully orchestrated, it was emotional! Niké then played to our guests after the ceremony during the drinks reception, she was beautifully presented and poised at all times, delivering song after song of beautiful melodious music. She is a true professional, needed little to no direction and came early and stayed on to ensure she delivered a flawless performance and service. All of our guests were very impressed by her, and have asked of her since. Truly one of the best decisions we made for the day was hiring Niké.
