Raymond Keys
Biography:

Raymond Keys is a vastly experienced pianist of international renown. If you need a pianist of any style for your event, look no further than this world-class performer.

Raymond first came to the piano through blues and jazz, relishing the freedom these genres gave him to improvise and express himself through music. But soon, he realised he wanted to perfect his playing and embarked upon full classical training, achieving a degree in music and a diploma in piano performance. This means when you hire Raymond Keys for your special occasion, you're getting an impeccable musician who is comfortable performing in a huge variety of styles.

Raymond Keys' wide-ranging repertoire includes beautiful classical music like Clair de Lune and Pachelbel's Canon, smooth jazz and swing covers of songs by the likes of Frank Sinatra and Bobby Darin, and piano interpretations of modern chart tunes by Ed Sheeran and Coldplay. Raymond's versatility makes him perfect for a wide range of events, including weddings, soirees, corporate functions and charity dinners.

Whichever style of music Raymond is playing, he imbues every note with energy, life and feeling. While he is performing, the piano becomes an extension of himself, singing out and expressing the emotions within a piece of music, making those precious moments even more poignant and memorable. Of course, with his background in jazz and blues, Raymond can change gears and lift the tempo with rousing funky grooves that'll have everyone tapping their feet and nodding along in appreciation.

Raymond's musical CV is seriously impressive: in addition to performances at countless weddings and events, he's been seen on stage all over the world and has performed and illustrious venues like Symphony Hall, the CBSO Centre, Alexander Palace, The Landmark Hotel London and the Belfry Golf Club and Hotel.

This wonderful West Midlands wedding pianist is available for hire throughout England and Wales.

"Raymond played the piano for our drinks reception at our wedding. Personally he was a very pleasant guy. Polite and chilled, before the wedding date I had good contact with Raymond, with fast replies and very helpful. He found his groove and played for 2 hours. He was a fantastic player and with some recommendations he put together a great playlist and set a really good tone four our big day. He was a really great part of our perfect day and definitely helped us make it a day we will never forget. I would recommend him every time! Great piano player, friendly face and lovely guys! Thanks Raymond"

"This is just to say thank you for playing for us yesterday. I had many positive comments about your choice of music, and the entire event seemed to go well. I would recommend you wholeheartedly to others for their parties and events."
Pianist Review
"Hope you're not too shattered today after your late night - just wanted to say a big thank you for yesterday - great meeting you, fabulous 'tinkling of the ivories' and loved your playing!"
Event Pianist
"Thank you so very, very much for playing at our wedding. You were incredible and we were so happy that you learned the Philip Glass piece for us and played it so beautiful for my entrance! We were so pleased to have booked you and would book you again in a heartbeat for another event. I'm only sad I didn't have time to pull up a chair next to you and just sit and listen for a while!"
Wedding Pianist
"I booked Raymond Keys for my Wedding in Leicestershire on 19th August 2018. Raymond was on time. He patiently waited as we were running late! He played beautifully during our wedding dinner. Our guests were very pleased, as were we! He even agreed to stay behind on an ad hoc basis as we needed the music to last a little longer :)"
Wedding Pianist Review
"5/5 for satisfaction, communication, punctuality and professionalism. Raymond Keys made contact before the event to cover any detail. He was a delightful addition to the entertainment adding that little touch and making the meal memorable for all."
