Last Thursday, I was working as a corporate event pianist & singer down in Gloucester. This was a team building corporate event for Nationwide. The plan was for some background music during dinner and then live karaoke around the piano. The team also had a traditional karaoke with larger screens set up for later…
Now, for a corporate event pianist & singer, the evening can be either quite formal or totally nuts! This event turned out to be Option 2. Hosts Maggie & Chris were keen to get the singing started right after dinner. They had prepared some carol sheets so that everybody could join in.
Once everyone was warmed up around the Frozen piano (you see what I did there?), the requests started coming in: Living On A Prayer, All You Need Is Love, Hey Jude, Build Me Up Buttercup, Delilah, American Pie, etc.
I never expected these diners to order so much cheese! Nobody wanted to know about “Do You Want To Build A Snowman“. We were straight into Livin’ On A Prayer! Brilliant!
Finally, after a great night, it was time to dismantle the piano and head home. Wish I had some better shots of the evening’s action… What’s that you say? Father Christmas might be bringing a GoPro? Oh, just 3 more sleeps… Merry Christmas everyone! x
