Here Comes Everybody

I have been playing Piano for many years.  I am available to play your wedding or event.   I can accommodate a venue with or without a piano.  I own a nice set up of keyboards and equipment that is available to make your event special.  I have performed many weddings at wineries, Timberline Lodge, The Ainsworth House, various McMenamin's venues, many churches, and smaller venues.  I have performed solo and with my band, Here Comes Everybody, in art galleries, clubs, colleges, festivals, and toured the West Coast as well as opened for local and national acts, featured on several cable and radio shows both local and national.  Give me a call to discuss music and details for your special event.  I love to perform and strive to make every event run as smooth as possible.  References available. Here is a list of some of the most popular songs I play.

NOTE:  I am able to learn most any song if given enough lead time, (a month is preferred, but I can learn a song in a week or even days if need be).  I also have access to some of Portland’s finest established male and female singers and musicians.  Extra charges apply.  I do not take requests during a performance, or do show tunes (unless specifically discussed beforehand).  I endeavor to make your event as professional, classy, and as enjoyable as possible.


Originals from “Here Comes Everybody”, written by myself over the last 20+ years:  Songs are contemporary and jazz-pop oriented.
