To put your mind at ease - I'm a full-time professional piano man based near York, highly rated across multiple platforms and have years of experience providing live background music for weddings and events.

I specialise in popular hits from the past century (1920s-2020s), as well as some blues and 'cocktail jazz', and I can adapt my style depending on the atmosphere at the venue. I can play each set for up to 2 hours without a break, and I'll bring my own electric piano and sound system.

I perform multiple times at over 50 venues a year.

  3. Seamless Setup: I bring along my electric piano and sound equipment, ensuring a smooth and unobtrusive setup.
  4. Engaging Interactions USP: At many events, I mingle with guests, chatting about their favourite tunes and building the next set list from their requests. It adds a personal touch and often becomes a highlight of the day.
  5. Consistent Melodies: Being full-time, I'm dedicated to my craft. I ensure there's a continuous flow of music, setting the backdrop for your guests' experience.
  6. Personalised ceremonies: I regularly consult with couples via video chat whilst sitting at my piano, and we brainstorm musical ideas until everyone's happy.

Wedding at Sandhole Oak Barn

Finn played at our wedding in March 2024.

Finns piano playing was simply beautiful, he played our chosen songs for our ceremony perfectly - and it wouldn't have been the same without him!

Finn played a range of music - adapting to the mood, including our guests request!

We cannot recommend Finn highly enough - thank you so much!

Best decision ever!

Thank you so much for being a part of making our day so incredibly special. I was in tears from the moment I heard you start to play our aisle song. Our guests all commented how lovely the music was during the welcome reception as well. We originally were not planning on having any live music at our wedding but changing our mind was honestly one of the best decisions we made. You took all our ideas for style of music and specific songs on board at the consultation and it was amazing to hear it all come to life!

Thank you Finn

Amazing Performance

We booked Finn for our wedding. We weren't sure about the the timings for everything, but he was incredibly helpful with making sure the music kept going smoothly around the venue's schedule without us having to worry. The music itself was amazing, we sent him some requests that were quite niche and they were honestly done perfectly. Loads of the guests mentioned they were really impressed with him as well - all in all we really can't recommend him enough and wouldn't hesitate to book him again!

Seriously good.

When we first spoke to Finn, and had our video chat with him, we both knew we'd landed on someone amazing. And this was confirmed on our wedding day - he was absolutely brilliant. You will not find a better pianist. Absolutely professional, and incredibly talented, he can play whatever you want in different styles. We would book Finn again without hesitation.

Finn - the best wedding pianist!

Finn is incredible, we can't thank him enough for playing on our wedding day. We are in awe of his talent! The range of music he could play was more than we could've imagined, from Disney songs to Green Day. He was so relaxed and made everything very easy. Everyone absolutely loved his music. We will be recommending him to everyone we know! Thanks again Finn, you're the best!

Brilliant pianist!

We wanted to say a huge thank you to Finn for being part of our wedding day. Finn played during our wedding breakfast and set the perfect ambience for our day. He asked what type of music we would like playing and was able to accommodate everything. He even spent time chatting to our guests taking requests and played some really eclectic songs! Our guests have been raving about the music. Thanks again Finn!
