I am a Professional Pianist
Based in Southampton, Hampshire
If you are planning a wedding, summer ball, product launch, corporate function, ladies festival, dinner party or any event in the Southampton, Portsmouth Winchester or Bournemouth area or in the New Forest,
where you would like the relaxed atmosphere of live piano music being played, you could do
no better than to ask Paul Francis to be your pianist. Paul is one of the finest wedding musicians in Hampshire
Background to Paul Francis - Pianist
Many people enjoy music most when they are not fully aware of its
presence. Paul was once complimented by being mistaken for a recording. Every
note you will hear from Paul, however, is completely live and spontaneous.
Having been introduced to the piano at the tender age of four by his father, Paul plays
with the natural flair one would expect from a pianist with so much experience.
His love of all kinds of music is
evident in his wide repertoire and his ability to play almost any tune in a style which
suits his current setting.
Paul has been known to play pop tunes in a relaxed "cocktail pianist" style or
disguise Gershwin or Noel Coward pieces as light classical for effect.
Paul frequently plays in bands of all styles and sizes and also plays solo in hotels, restuarants, bars, military establishments and on cruises.
The 'state-of-the-art' digital piano (Yamaha CP4 Stage Piano) which Paul uses produces a sound quality which is second to none. This means it will sound just as if Paul is playing
an expensive grand piano without the disruption of having one delivered to your venue or the expense of having it
