Introduction: At just 29 years old, I've been performing professionally for over 18 years, since age ten. Over 1,500 performances, including Carnegie Hall. Award winning pianist. Jazz, Pop, Classical, all genres/styles, huge repertoire. Singer too. Easy and fun to work with. Highly experienced at high end corporate events, weddings, and private events. Extraordinary and memorable music at your event is guaranteed! I've been called the 'David Copperfield of Piano' because of the magical way I 'talk' to a piano to get remarkable sound from it. I guarantee you that I'll make music magic on your piano (or my keyboard) that you and your guests and clients will be talking about and complimenting you on your choice of pianist both during and after your event. At my website you can hear and see tons of performance clips from live events, playing and singing all genres and styles and where you'll get in-depth information on my music background and experiences. My client list reads like a 'Who's Who' of prominent people and top corporations and organizations. I service clients here in the Los Angeles area where I live, also back in my home town of Chicago and I perform nationwide. I have clients that hire me again and again for their corporate events and personal special events over many years. I will provide remarkable background mood setting music at your corporate event, wedding or special private event. I will provide you the talent, experience and reliability you need from a pianist during a wedding ceremony. I can do a performance for your corporate clients, provide you the kind of music you desire at old fashioned or hip contemporary Hollywood party or intimate dinner or put on a special show for seniors where I play and sing the old hits, standards and patriotic songs they love or put on entertaining music shows for the kids that is interactive and fun. Sing a-longs, 'Name that Tune' shows and more! Please visit my websites for more extensive info, lots of client testimonials and view tons of video and audio performance clips that cover all styles of music... StevenSolomon (dot) com On youtube just search my name. Btw, in some of the clips here on Thumbtack and on my websites you'll see me identified as "Skatterplot." This is my band's name ....performing original pop/rock music :) I love being a part of helping to make someone's personal or corporate special event an even more extraordinary and memorable then they had envisioned. It's rewarding to see the direct and immediate positive impact that my music has on guests. And I love interacting and talking with guests, taking their requests, answering questions about my music and hearing the nice comments about my music that they like to share with me (one very unique skill I have, is that I can chat with your guests and play the piano at the same time, without missing a note or the beat :) Few pianists here on Thumbtack, in their mid-twenties, can claim the experience, variety and depth of musical experiences and services that I can provide for you and your guests and clients. I've played at venues in Los Angeles including the Westin LAX, Disneyland, Luminarias, Crystal Cathedral, Gibson Guitar Showroom, the Towers at Laguna Woods and many more venues and at private exclusive high end events (both large and intimate) for some of Hollywood's top stars and industry trendsetters (I am very discrete and respectful of my clients privacy). I've performed around the country, including my debut at Carnegie Hall in NYC at age 20, at the Grand Lodge in Yellowstone National Park, Rincon Center in San Francisco, Liberace Museum in Las Vegas to name a few and extensively in Chicago, my home town, at nearly every major music venue in the city and at major city Festivals and at numerous high end weddings, corporate and private events. I have many clients that hire me again and again for their special events.

Steven performed for my wife’s surprise 40th birthday party and did an amazing job. He played everything that was requested, elegant classic music in the befinning and then it turned into a dance club by the end of the night. It was a great time and very memorable. Very professional and nice guy to have at yoir party.

Thanks, Tim! It was cool to be a part of the 'surprise' and play your wife's favorite song as she walked into the house...loved her reaction! You pulled off a wonderful surprise party, with tons of musical fun all evening! It was an honor to be able to play for you and your guests!

Rudy M.

Pianist

I hired Steven to play piano at my birthday party, for a fun sing-along event. At first I was nervous that no one would sing, but Steven knows so many songs and he quickly got people off their feet singing and dancing! My friends have all told me what a memorable and unique idea this was to have Steven play live piano music and I couldn't agree more. Steven was very kind and professional from the start, clearly laying out the terms in advance, he responded quickly to emails, and the follow through was a breeze. He could play all the songs my guests requested, transpose key, read sheet music, sing, and play from memory. He's very talented! We all had a blast!

From the first conversation until he left our home on the night of the engagement it was pure joy having Steven and Kim Soo! He is not only accomplished...he is accommodating and flexible to adapt to requests or changing moods of the evening. He is professional but also very charming and a delight with guests. Our highest recommendation!!

Steven was a pleasure to communicate with- we discussed all details and I am looking forward to him coming to our school to rock the piano for our teacher appreciation day!
Pianist to the Stars - Steven Solomon's reply
Thanks, Noni for the nice comments on my pre-event communications :) I always make sure I know everything about the event and the services my clients are requesting from me and that my clients know everything about the services I'm providing to them. This ensures that everyone at the event is going to have an extraordinary, memorable and fun experience with me and my music! I'm very much looking forward to 'rocking' the teachers at the piano at the wonderful event you have planned for them!

Mio F.

Wedding Ceremony Music

Steven helped us at our corporate event, I pushed him to make me look really good by hiring him...lol Steven was awesome, from the very beginning to the very end, very pleasant, patient, prompt, responsive, communicative, happy, accommodating, professional and all.... needless to say very talented. I had seen/listened to his work prior to hiring him so I was not worried about his work(I wish we could have a grand piano for his talent, unfortunately due to the venue we had to compromise with a keyboard), and he did not disappoint me/us. In addition to his professionalism his fee was very fair, I have no hesitations in recommending him to anybody, I would hire him for my wedding if I ever have a chance... :)
Pianist to the Stars - Steven Solomon's reply
First to clarify to those reading this review, this was not a wedding, it was a corporate event :) Thanks Mio for the very kind review. It was lots of fun entertaining your colleagues. And it was great when everyone started singing along to 'We Are the Champions' :) Congratulations to everyone on a record breaking business year for the company. It was a privilege to be of service to you and your company and to work with you in helping you to put together a very successful event.
