Introduction: As far back as I can remember, I have always enjoyed being in front of the piano trying to make it sing. I was inspired to do so by the talent of my mother and older brother. After giving my family members one too many headaches when I was much younger, I was given the opportunity to take piano lessons in order to refine my technique. Through the course of the years, I developed an eclectic approach to my music. My attitude has been if I enjoy playing it, I will play it regardless of the genre. I would like to think the result has been a wide scope of music that appeals to a broader audience. I look forward to performing at your functions. Thank-you in advance for the opportunity. What I enjoy about my work is the opportunity it gives me to do something that I appreciate doing, as well as learning songs that I would otherwise not have heard or played.

Amazing….absolutely fabulous. Andrew played at our engagement party at the Wentworth by the Sea Country Club and delivered not only an amazing performance but Andrew knew how to blend in with the evening always keeping up with the flow of the party. His knowledgeable range of music allowed our guests to enjoy everything from Classical to Country/Rock. Guest enjoyed very much picking out their own songs to be played and we ended the evening with Moonlight Sonata as my fiancé & I slow danced, truly magical & just perfect! Thank you Andrew!

My daughter and I recently hosted a fundraiser for Ukraine. Most of the attendees were Ukrainian. When they first arrived, several told us of recent bombings near their hometowns, and how worried they were about their families. Then Mr. Kaplan began to play for the crowd....he transformed the room into an atmosphere of love, support, and unity. His beautiful music brought such joy to the occasion. He even performed live over the internet to bring more people to the event. Toward the end of the day, several attendees hugged us and thanked us for hosting this gathering. Serving an Eastern European buffet, along with Mr. Kaplan's talented performance, really made this fundraiser a success. He touched many hearts that day. Donations are still coming in from people who weren't able to attend, but heard how wonderful it was!! I feel blessed to have found Andrew Kaplan. Whoever includes his graceful and professional presence at their next event will surely feel the same!!

Details: Fundraiser • 76 - 100 guests • 31 - 50 years old • Guitar • Other strings • Piano • No preference • Other • Jazz / Blues • Banquet hall / ballroom

Andrew is very good entertainer. He keep in touch with me before the event start. He call me 2 to 3 times prior to the event to make sure that he is ready for the party. He came to the restaurant early, very friendly and Courteous toward me and my guests. I highly recommend him to anyone who is looking for a pianist for their event.

Details: Birthday party • 26 - 50 guests • 31 - 50 years old • Piano • Pop / top 40 • Other
