Lee John - Pianist
I have been playing the piano since I was 5 years old.
I began my career on board Cruise ships at the age of 21 travelling and playing around the world for 5 years, working for Cunard, Royal Caribbean and Princess Cruises. I then returned and started working in London's famous hotels and department stores where I gained residencies at The Lanesborough, Harrods and The Dorchester. I've held a Pianist residency for over 10 years.
I am a specialist in wedding entertainment and I currently perform at over 100 weddings per year. I have my very own Baby Grand Piano Shell which has been specially designed to be fully portable and to fit into any function room. It's also easily assembled within 30 minutes.
I play all types of music from contemporary modern songs to jazz and rat pack music - check out my repertoire for the full list. My playing is never overbearing or too noisy. I have finely tuned my art after years of playing at High/Afternoon Tea events, where sensitivity and beauty in playing is the essence

Review from Megan Frankland 01/09/2018
"Lee was superb for our wedding breakfast, he set up and played us into the meal seamlessly. My only regret is that we didn’t get much chance to thank him as he was an exceptional musician and played all of our requests beautifully!"
Review from Simon Boyson 27/08/2018
"Everyone at the wedding was really impressed with Lee's piano playing. The background music that Lee played was absolutely perfect in what was a perfect day in all. Lee gave us a choice of music before the wedding, and it was played absolutely beautifully. You can tell that Lee really loves what he does, and I know I shouldn't be saying it, but I'm sure Lee played a lot longer then the 90mins we requested, which was a delight for us and our guests. Thank you Lee, we would thoroughly recommend Lee to anyone else!"

"Lee stepped in the night before our wedding to perform on our wedding day. Lee had fantastic communication and kept us up to date with his location on the morning of the wedding and was friendly and professional on the day. Thank you for stepping in last minute Lee."
Review from Rebecca Pearce 24/06/2018
"It was so lovely having Lee play at my son's christening, everyone said how much they enjoyed hearing him play and how fantastic he was. He really added an extra special element to the day. Plus he was such a lovely person. If I ever need a pianist again in the future I would be sure to book him again. So pleased that I decided to book him for the Christening."
Review from Hannah Peach 28/04/2018
"We hired Lee to play in the background throughout our wedding day and also supply the music for the Ceremony and we were blown away with how great it was. He played beautifully the whole day and the setup of his piano looked fantastic."
