PRE DINNER MUSIC

- Are you looking for a professional musician to play well-known songs as your guests arrive at the hotel?
- Want your guests to be able to hear themselves speak instead of loud music over-powering the banter and conversations at your wedding reception?

You've come to the right place! Give your wedding that extra special touch! While you, the newlyweds, are off having your wedding photos taken, why not treat your guests to an enjoyable setlist of songs played on the piano by a highly sought after musician!

Keith offers 3 different options to couples searching for pre-dinner wedding music. It all depends on what suits YOUR requirements for your big day! Options are outlined below...

Option One - Instrumental
Keith will play a setlist of 2 hours comprising of various hits, both new & old. The songs will be played on the hotel's piano and are not accompanied by any singing.
A lot of people book a singer for pre-dinner muisic and find that the guests cannot enjoy their conversations as it's just too loud over the mic/speakers! This is never a problem with Keith as the melodies are played on the piano as backround entertainment - and of course, the guests are welcome to sing along if they like!

Option Two - Piano & Singing
Keith will play a full set of well-known songs, including a little something to suit all musical tastes! From classic hits to contemporary chart songs, your guests will enjoy just the right blend of songs to really get them in the mood to celebrate the occasion!

Option Three - Best of both worlds!
Can't decide between the singing and instrumental options? Why not try the best of both worlds! As your guests arrive, Keith will play instrumental versions of well known songs to set the mood. It gives people a chance to get into the room, maybe get a drink and settle at the venue. This will continue for approximately one hour - half of the set. After which, he will continue with a further hour of playing but this time with the added element of singing to give it that something extra! At this point, the guests will have started to settle at the hotel, drinks in hand, and can now enjoy the music and banter!


Whichever option you pick, your guests are sure to be impressed!
Keith will select what songs to play on the day and will ensure there's a nice variety of music to suit the crowd. For bookings, it is essential. to check Keith's availability for your date. It is also important to read Keith's Terms of Business in full to ensure you are happy to proceed with a booking.

IF THERE'S NO PIANO AT THE HOTEL
That's not a problem! If the venue does not have a piano or the piano is unsuitable, Keith will provide a digital piano at no extra cost!

Keith uses the Yamaha P120 digital piano. It is an amazing piece of pro-equiptment with each individual note based on dynamic acoustic sampling from a real Steinway Grand Piano! The Yamaha P120 boasts the full 88 weighted keys you'd find on a grand piano. It also features what some people say is "the closest thing to a real grand piano sound" so the guests will not be disappointed!

CIVIL CEREMONY
MUSIC


Civil ceremonies are becoming increasingly popular and can vary greatly when it comes to music, each and every ceremony is different! Keith's large repertoire of songs gives you plenty of scope to be creative for your civil ceremony music. He encourages couples to pick songs that hold special meaning to them, making their ceremony memorable for both the wedding couple and the guests alike!

Keith can bring along a digital stage piano and speakers (a small, compact setup) and can sing your chosen songs or play them instrumental if preferred. Civil ceremonies give more freedom than church weddings when it comes to choosing your songs, and that's why Keith is an ideal musician for this type of wedding! He can play lots of different styles allowing you to pick songs that you really love, even if they're not the norm, so your ceremony will be unique and special for you & your partner!

Keith also uses an acoustic guitar from time to time if he feels it would suit the song better than piano - this is usually discussed with the couple before the wedding day and if they'd prefer to keep it piano-only, that's not a problem either!

For your civil ceremony songs, you may choose from any of Keiths songlists below (except the church songs list - because this is not a religious ceremony, it means that religious songs/hymns are generally not permitted by the registrar). Frequently requested songs can be found here.
Keith will learn two new songs per couple free of charge and they must be discussed with Keith in advance of the wedding to give him adequate time for preparation.
