Pianist Vocalist East Lodge Derbyshire Wedding

“We are looking for a pianist vocalist!” said Franco. “I am a pianist. But do you sing too?” This was the start of our first conversation.

Last night, I finally got to perform at Franco and Ita’s wedding at East Lodge Hotel in Derbyshire. The award-winning hotel was very impressive. The service was excellent too. However, after so many courses, the Italian-themed wedding breakfast had run way over schedule.

Guests eventually made their way out to the lounge. I imagine there were about 20 people. The weather outside was pretty shocking but inside we already had a few dancers!

The bride and groom wanted a professional pianist vocalist to play specific piano & vocal versions. These included songs by the Rat Pack, Billy Joel, U2, Eagles, Killers, Coldplay, etc. They also wanted some familiar Irish and Italian songs and then requests on the night.

Franco played piano during my breaks including a great version of Video Killed The Radio Star. He could be a pianist vocalist after all. It was non-stop!! Desidero per voi tutta la felicità di questo mondo! xx
