ABOUT ME

With over 10 years of experience as a Pianist and Musician, Christian has performed hundreds of shows, including Weddings, Private Functions, Classical Recitals, Jazz nights, Film Screenings and more! He has performed at VIP events, Football Stadiums, some of the UK's most Luxury Hotels, as well as National monuments including the historically significant Harrow. With a repertoire that spans Jazz, Blues, Pop, Classical, Motown, and Funk, there is something for everyone in Christian’s set-list.

His USP as a performer is that he bring two copies of his setlist, one for him and one for the audience. His setlist is then shown to the audience, and they are able to pick and chose songs as they like. This is great for audience participation.

Christian’s goal with each booking, from Weddings through to Corporate Functions, is for the music to reflect the individuality of each event. When booking, Christian’s Clients have the option to curate their own set-list which he will learn, or alternately, they can chose from one of his existing set-lists. Currently Christian plays a Jazz Cocktail Set list which contains self composed jazz arrangements of some of the biggest tracks of the last 50 years. In addition to this, he also has a standard Wedding Set list which contains over 150 love songs.

Weddings, Birthdays, Anniversaries , Corporate events; no two events are alike, so why should the music be the same? Whether you’re looking to add a touch of class to a drinks reception / private dinner, or give a wedding ceremony the grandeur it deserves, then hiring a pianist is the perfect way to bring your event to life.

Christian provides his own PA and Electric Piano – The Nord Stage 2. He is happy to provide this industry leading instrument, if your venue does not have a tuned piano.

    Solo

    My USP as a performer is that I bring two copies of my setlist, one for me and one for the audience. My setlist is then shown to the audience, and they are able to pick and chose songs as they like. This is great for audience participation and has gone down well every time. I like to think of it as a live dukebox.

Christian played for our event and it was amazing! All of the guests loved the music and the fantastic atmosphere he created! The booking process and correspondence was also entirely flawless and Christian was a pleasure to work with.
Excellent stuff and I would have no hesitation in placing another booking in the future. Many thanks 👍

Booked Christian Smith for a Wedding
5.0   Verified review

We booked Christian to play at our wedding whilst guests ate and milled about, as we thought he'd be perfect because his repertoire was filled with modern songs done with a jazz twist. We could not have been more thrilled with Christian. Not only was he super communicative leading up to the wedding, but he also allowed us to suggest some songs that he would learn for the big day.
On the day Christian was fantastic. Everyone loved the vibe he created and his rendition of Taylor Swift's 'Shake It Off' went down particularly well! ;)
I'd have no hesitation in recommending Christian to anyone wanting a fun, yet classy, pianist to play at their function. Thank you so much!

We wanted to make sure our wedding was a celebration with friends and not an ‘occasion’. Christian understood this and provided the perfect musical accompaniment that complimented the reception and was enjoyed by everyone in attendance"
