Influences: Billy Joel, Elton John
Playing on various local bands around the Wexford Wicklow area for years.
Recently retired from work so looking to join serious covers band again.
Rehearsals are not a problem as I feel band should be tight going out on the road
I can cover all styles.
I have been Musical Director for about 60 variety shows and pantomimes over the years. I currently play 7 shows per year and am MD for 3 of those and asst MD for the rest. The role encompasses teaching the music to the chorus and directing the band as keys I player.
I accompany the Enniscorthy Gospel Choir for rehearsal and performances and also accompany soloists and other choirs for performances when requested.
I have played keys II in a number of musicals - Les Miserables, Addams Family, thee Musicman, Sound of Music, Oliver, Fiddler and many more.
I have good gear - 88 note Roland with sound module for brass etc.
Also play the church organ since I was 16 years of age so I have a good classical repertoire and can accompany any soloist.
I play drinks receptions either solo piano or with a sax or trumpet player where I use a keyboard with rhythms .
I can travel without any problem .
Hope to hear from you.
