James is a modern musician and entertainer from Yorkshire, who has played at hundreds of weddings & special events, ranging from intimate occasions with a handful of guests, to the largest, most lavish of celebrations.

He adds a beautiful ambience to any occasion with his unrivalled & fabulous repertoire of piano interpretations of contemporary pop and rock music. With the natural ability to play by ear and also read sheet music, James is understandably very much in demand on the wedding and events circuit.

He began learning the piano and organ at the age of 7, and by the age of 12 was playing with high school ensembles, bands and in musical productions, alongside being a local church organist. He rapidly obtained grade 8 standard on piano, drums and percussion, and joined Calderdale Youth Symphony Orchestra as principal percussionist.

James continued his interest by studying Music Technology BSc at The University of Huddersfield, specialising in Composition and Performance, whilst playing in rock, soul, funk and indie bands on the piano, hammond organ, keyboards, drums and occasional electric and bass guitar.

If you are looking to add an unsurpassed level of sophistication to your wedding or event, James provides the only music you should consider.

Everyone needs some James Robert magic at their wedding!

5 stars - James Robert are Highly Recommended booked James Robert for their event

“We are so utterly grateful for all your hard work in the run up and on the big day itself. Tom and I truly believe the musical elements of our day made it just so perfect and magical. The piano playing outside and during the meal was so classy and elegant and Tom and I loved it when we suddenly heard one of our songs being played, it’s moments like that that make memories. You were so subtle with the setting up, I didn't even notice it was just all so professional. Everyone needs some James Robert magic at their wedding! I have honestly found you the most kind, professional, easy to contact and helpful person during the planning of our wedding. It is not an easy task but you have just been amazing to work with. Really can’t thank you enough James, Tom and I and especially my parents will be supporting you in the future and will recommend to all!”


Absolutely wonderful

“Our day was magical, made even more so by James. If anyone thinks they have got everything covered for their special day, please think again and definately book James. Alison could hear the playing as she walked down the staircase to the ceremony room and wanted it to last forever. Our guests were very impressed too and made lots of lovely comments. Absolutely wonderful.”


James was amazing from beginning to end.

5 stars - James Robert are Highly Recommended booked James Robert for their event

“James Robert made our wedding one to remember. James was amazing from beginning to end, he helped us choose our music as we had no idea what sounded good on the piano. It all came together perfectly on the day and the music sounded so amazing i was in tears before i'd even entered the ceremony room, it just made that perfect moment all the more special. Six weeks on and people are still telling me how lovely the music was. James is so friendly and polite which was very important to us as wedding planning is stressful enough but he made it all so easy and fun. I honestly can't recommend James highly enough, if you're looking for a pianist to play at your wedding or event James is your man, you won't be disappointed. ”


James was professional, willing and flexible.

5 stars - James Robert are Highly Recommended booked James Robert for their event

“Having James play at our wedding made our day so perfect. From first contact via email to the end of his time with us on the day James was professional, willing and flexible. James played during our ceremony and for a couple of hours outside in the gardens of Holdsworth House (on a mega hot day!!) whilst we had photographs and drinks and was more than happy to accommodate all of our requests for specific songs to be played at certain times, even learning a new piece for Emma to walk down the aisle to. All of our guests are still telling us how amazing the 'piano man' was and how his music made the afternoon. James was also great value for money, we would have paid a lot more to have him present as we were so impressed!! Many thanks James for creating a wonderful atmosphere on our perfect day. ”
