Introduction: FOR MORE INFORMATION ON HIRING BRIAN FOR AN EVENT, GIG, OR PRODUCTION/STUDIO WORK, PLEASE SEE THE ENTIRE PROFILE Hi, thanks for your interest in hiring me to play at your event, party, or venue. While I often perform solo or as a duo, I also play with my trio, quartet, and, if needed, my nine-piece band. One of the keys to my success over the years is my ability to perform so many varied styles of music. WHY HIRE BRIAN ? 1) The list of players I regularly play with in my band is a “Who’s, Who “ of Bay Area talent. 2) I have never had a negative review or dissatisfied client. Because of this, I form relationships with clients that continue to grow over the years. 3) I custom-piece together the perfect musicians to match the style or styles of music you enjoy or require for a venue or themed party. Some musicians are good at jazz, some at pop, and some at Latin or rock, but they rarely excel at all styles. When you hire a band, you get what “they” like to play instead of what you want to hear. 4) I can read the room. I know when to ramp up the musical energy and when to take it down a notch. 5) Music is more than a job; it is my life. I am a full-time musician, so I work harder and care more. Here is a list of venues Brian has performed at: Yoshis, Yoshi’s S.F., The Fenix, Silos Napa, Slims, Biscuits & Blues, Bimbos 365 Club, The Rrazz Room, Plush Room, DNA Lounge, The Boom Boom Room, Carnelian Room, CafeDuNord, Sweetwater, Broadway Bar & Grill, Great American Music Hall.

I had several interactions with Brian by email and phone in order to set up remote piano lessons. While I ended up not being able to start the lessons (due to circumstances on my end), I was extremely impressed with Brian's efforts to get me started - he was proactive and willing to do whatever necessary to accommodate my needs. His commitment to me (not even a student yet!) was clear and I would not hesitate to contact him in the future if my situation changed. Highly recommended!

Details: 65 years or older • Yes, the student can read music • 4+ yrs of formal training • Jazz • Yes, the student has a keyboard • 45 minutes • Remotely (phone or internet)
