Pianist at Will and Susannah’s Wedding at Thornton Hall Hotel, Wirral

31st Jul 2011

I’m just back from performing at Will and Susannah’s wedding in the Torintone Suite at Thornton Hall. They had asked me to perform with the baby grand piano but no vocals (I don’t take it personally…) and just one particular request: “Nightswimming” by REM.
It turns out Will had played in several bands himself and wanted to hear a few new takes on songs that he and Susannah liked. People seemed to like the tango version of Back To Black that I’ve started doing too. 
Although I am more used to singing with the piano, the modern instrumentals and piano arrangements of requests from guests worked really well today.. plus a rest day for my voice. Best wishes to the bride and groom!
