a great mix of modern and classical - joe was fantastic!

5 stars - JG Piano (Pianist) are Highly Recommended
booked JG Piano for their Wedding February 2022

“On the lead up to the big day Joe was fantastic and so thorough in helping put together our music choices for the ceremony, prompting us to provide information that made the whole procession and ceremony go without a hitch. Our ceremony music on piano and violin sounded so beautiful and definitely made a few people well up (including both of us!) All the music was perfectly pitched and at the right volume and so many guests commented on how beautiful it sounded. Our drinks reception was made all the better for the lovely music which was a great mix of modern and more classical throughout. We were both so impressed with Joe and Jody the violinist's professionalism and talent throughout our whole day.”

Professional, Exceptional, Passionate!

booked JG Piano for their Wedding at Pendrell Hall in Staffordshire

“Joe and Heidi (on violin) were the most professional, exceptional performers on our wedding day and my husband and I cannot thank them enough for helping make our day so memorable and perfect. I first contacted Joe on Alive Network 3 years ago. Since then Joe has been in contact continually, checking in to see that we are okay. He has been approachable, flexible, kind and caring. In all honesty, out of all of the services I spoke to Joe the most and trusted him and Heidi so much as I knew how much they cared about their work and how passionate they were in getting it right for me, my husband and our wedding guests. The wedding ceremony was beautiful, they performed classical pieces and that was something that the guests loved, they even allowed me to choose a wedding entrance piece that was very close to my heart and perfected it, making it my most favourite memory of the whole day. After the ceremony they gathered into the drawing room and performed a mix of songs, mostly pop classi...”

The perfect party player!

5 stars - JG Piano (Pianist) are Highly Recommended
booked JG Piano for their event in Gloucestershire

“We engaged JG Piano to play the piano during my mother’s 90th Birthday party. Joe was marvellous from the moment he arrived to the moment he left us after joining us for a lovely post party cup of tea. He was charming, pleasant and considerate throughout the five or so hours he was with us. His musicianship was clear for all to hear, his playing was excellent but what was especially nice about Joe was his willingness to allow us to choose the pieces that he played.— and he had a broad and varied repertoire. There was a lovely moment during the afternoon when Joe gently coaxed Jacob, a 10 year old member of our family, to accompany him at the piano and sing a song. Joe put him at ease and played the piano in a way that brought the best out in Jacob. It was a touching moment that had the room in tears. We could not recommend Joe more highly!”

the music simply MADE the day!!

5 stars - JG Piano (Pianist) are Highly Recommended
booked JG Piano for their event

“JG piano was excellent and so reassuring right through the whole wedding planning. He knew exactly what needed to be done and helped me find exactly the music I wanted for my big day! He also coordinated an unforgettable bridal entrance for me by playing a duet with my best friend on violin. There was not a dry eye in the room! He then played throughout the rest of the day and although I was busy with photos for much of the time, all my friends and family said how brilliant he was and what a great choice of songs. We are very grateful to you for helping make our day so special.”

the absolute best party pianist

booked JG Piano for their event

“Yet another wonderful Christmas Party and yet another sparkling performance from JG piano! Our guests now always ask if Joe will be performing before they arrive and he is the absolute highlight of the festivities! We relax over drinks and enjoy such a variety of wonderful music from all genres, right up to the modern tunes that our daughter loves… and then follows the annual festive sing-along which Joe manages so skilfully and with such flair and charisma! Thank you so much once more for making our party the talk of the town!”

Full Biography


JG Piano trained at the Birmingham Conservatoire to achieve a distinction at grade 8 in 1992. As a professional musical director, choir director and performer since 1997 Joe can tailor his performance to suit the atmosphere of any wedding ceremony, evening reception, private party or corporate dinner.

Covering every style and genre from classical and jazz right through to modern pop tunes, Joe is the perfect 'cocktail lounge' piano player and improviser. Joe is well versed in all the popular standards and requests are welcomed.

Joe gives a sensitive performance to suit all requirements and with his friendly and professional attitude this pianist will make all of your guests feel welcome and relaxed.

Joe is available as a duo with the highly-experienced and talented jazz vocalist Colette.

Colette’s professional career began with the world arena tour of Riverdance as a part of the Riverdance Singers, where she became the featured soloist singer within a year. She spent 2 years touring internationally across Europe and the Far East; and took part in the 5 year ‘homecoming’ to Dublin’s Point Theatre. She was then asked by Irish dance show rival, Michael Flatley’s Lord of the Dance, to become their only singer. Since then she has sung in numerous settings and for many high-profile occasions. Colette has been invited by Shrewsbury Choral Society, Worcester Male Voice Choir, and the Westbury Singers to sing the soprano solos in various large scale works. And has also appeared as a featured soloist in many other concerts, for example an evening celebrating St Cecilia’s Day, a showcase of local talent in Worcester, a Proms concert and a concert arranged by The Rotary Club, Bristol. She has recorded with both folk and rock bands and is able to turn her hand to any style of music. During her time living in Australia from 2011-2014, Colette has also toured with the Irish dance show Rhythms of Ireland and with the Irish dance/illusion show Celtic Illusion. These shows have seen her tour through New South Wales, Queensland and Northern Territories. She also appeared as a part of vocal group, Angel Voices. Once again being in demand as an ensemble performer and soloist singer.

Joe and Colette, together with mat on sax, james on drums and mark on double bass make up the sizzling jazz quintet The Jazz Magnets (see booking options)

Joe is also available as a duo with a talented professional violinist such as Antonia Finch, Heidi Nixon or Julie McRae. All of whom are highly experienced and classically trained but are equally at home with modern repertoire - see lists below.
