Holiday Pianist adds pizazz at Mall of America
November 29, 2015

Shoppers were in a festive mood at the MOA.  

I had great fun playing holiday piano music! 

The new North Entrance Rotunda at the Mall of America was spacious with comfy couches so visitors could relax and listen to my music. Enjoyed seeing people that I knew too!

My holiday season is filled with playing for wonderful parties. The Mall of America was a great way to start! Tonight I am at the Spilled Grain Brewery for a private client appreciation event.  

Some of my clients have me return year after year. The Snowmobile Club is my longest running gig at 15 years! I feel like family when I return every December to play for them.

A corporate client at the International Market Square invited me to set up my portable piano onsite at their location to play for their holiday party. Buca will be the caterer and I am included in the feasting!

Another corporate client has hired several aerialists to perform at Aria for their holiday party. They hired me to play for the party and also provide piano accompaniment during the aerialist act. I contacted the aerialists and met with the client early on to plan how this would be accomplished. They asked me to record the music ahead of time so the aerialists could practice with my music. I better make sure I play the songs exactly as I recorded them on the day of their event!

I am especially looking forward to performing with Harpist Serena O'Meara. A client hired us to perform harp and piano duo music for their Christmas party at a beautiful country club. It is a very classy event and our music will make it even more so!  Serena  and I perform as the Royal Event Musicians and we have a lovely repertoire for unique occasions. You can find out more at ROYAL EVENT MUSICIANS.

People love to gather at the holidays to share in a special time together. I feel honored when I am invited to be their pianist.

I love creating a festive musical atmosphere for holiday events!
