    Benjamin Christian
    Biography:

    Breathe life and class into any occasion with Benjamin Christian, a supremely talented pianist with an established reputation for magnificent compositions!

    Benjamin Christian performs an extensive range of genres, including rock, pop, classical, jazz, soul, blues, latin, cocktail, easy listening, musical theatre and film and TV themes. With such a broad repertoire and 10 years of experience as a pianist and musician, Benjamin will supply music to perfectly match your desired mood. Benjamin's skill has seen him perform at hundreds of weddings, jazz nights, private functions, classical recitals, film screenings, and even theme parks.

    Individuality is the order of the day. For elegant receptions and dinners, Benjamin performs a jazz cocktail set list combining self-composed jazz arrangements from Frank Sinatra to Ed Sheeran and more of the biggest tracks from the last half-century. Benjamin aims for each performance to be a unique expression of the event at which he plays.

    Benjamin Christian gives you the opportunity to curate your own set-list, or choose from one of his existing set-lists. With nearly 200 tracks in his repertoire and a standard wedding list containing over 150 songs, you'll be spoiled for choice!

    Covering pieces from the fathers of classical music like Chopin, Vivaldi and Bach to modern masters like Ludovico Einaudi, Benjamin's playing will allow you to experience once again iconic symphonies and modern masterpieces. His elegant play style will have everyone falling in love with classical music, again and again.

    Multi-talented, it's not merely covers of the greats that have honed Benjamin's skills as one of the finest lounge pianists in the country; he has composed music for films and television, his most notable clients being Mercedes-Benz, O2, the Faroe Islands tourism board, and even an International Royal Family - twice! He has performed at the internationally renowned Affordable Art Fair in London, as well as at prestigious hotels like The Savoy and Kimpton Fitzroy for tech entrepreneurs, hedge fund managers and the biggest banks and legal firms in the UK. Benjamin's skills and experience make him an ideal choice as a wedding pianist or a pianist for corporate events.

    If your venue doesn't have a tuned piano, it's no trouble for Benjamin. With his own PA and electronic piano - the beautiful and industry leading Nord Stage 2 recreating the melodious sound of a grand piano - your venue will come alive with superb coverage and lifelike string resonance.

    There are plenty of optional extras to make the sound bigger and the performance longer. Choose from a variety of set lists or add extra performances of 45 minutes or 60 minutes - and why not add a ceremony set to really add some grandeur to the big day? You can specify a 1am finish for Benjamin to keep the elegance flowing, and if you feel like going all out on the sound, a vocalist can be hired to accompany his playing.

    Get in touch now to hire this exquisitely talented musician for your event!

    "I picked up Benjamin just before the event and he immediately came across as easy-going, professional and relaxed. He was kind enough to learn a typical Bollywood wedding song and the bride's family appreciated it very much. He is very attentive to the timings and the details that are so important during a ceremony. He knew better than me when to start or to stop to fill up the blanks of a civil ceremony, he must have built a great experience from playing at weddings. Huge repertoire, nothing worries him. He is the one you need when you want to truly get classy. Everyone enjoyed. 5/5 stars!"
    Stefano - Wedding - Greater London
    "Benjamin Christian went down a treat and everyone enjoyed his wonderful talent. We appreciated his time and effort as well as the lovely music he played for us.'
    Kesley - Corporate
    "Benjamin Christian played at our wedding, he played as the guests were arriving, the walk in song, after the ceremony and during the fizz and canapes, he was sensational, it really set the mood and emotions throughout this time and was perfect. Benjamin Christian himself is very friendly and talented, he even learnt a song he wasn't familiar with, with only a week to go until the wedding. I couldn't recommend having him play at your event enough. I can honestly say it was the perfect touch to our special day."
    Emma - Wedding
    "Benjamin Christian was brilliant! Really professional and flexible and he happily learnt lots of new songs for our wedding drinks reception. Our guests loved him. We would most definitely recommend!"
    Abby B - Wedding
    "We booked Benjamin Christian to play at our wedding whilst guests ate and milled about, as we thought he'd be perfect because his repertoire was filled with modern songs done with a jazz twist. We could not have been more thrilled with Benjamin Christian. Not only was he super communicative leading up to the wedding, but he also allowed us to suggest some songs that he would learn for the big day. On the day Benjamin Christian was fantastic. Everyone loved the vibe he created and his rendition of Taylor Swift's 'Shake It Off' went down particularly well! ;) I'd have no hesitation in recommending Benjamin Christian to anyone wanting a fun, yet classy, pianist to play at their function. Thank you so much!"
