I play 'feel good music' with energy and showmanship!
Coming from a family of strong musicians, I first started playing the piano when I was six years old. I had classical lessons to the age of twelve (just listening and learning to copy the sounds) and went on to win 'Young Musician Of The Year'.
A few years later, I switched to a teacher that gave me more direction on improvisation, jazz and pop.
By the age of eighteen, I'd mastered the art of playing boogie woogie piano - relying on a strong left hand and a quick technique.
Since 2007, I have become one of the resident pianist at Jools Holland's live music venue 'The Jam House' in Birmingham. I'm also very privileged to have performed at some of the countries top music festivals and theatres. I've played at countless weddings and private parties - and even done a few for some celebrities!
I cover various genres of music ranging from the 60's to the present day. I play songs from the likes of Frank Sinatra, Top Loader, Maroon Five, Ed Sheeran, Oasis, Take That, Bon Jovi, Jerry Lee Lewis, Kings Of Leon, The Killers, Justin Timberlake, Pharrell Williams and Jess Glynne to name but a few.
Just ask me for an up to date ‘typical set-list’ and it will give you a great idea of the music that I play.
"Yourself, Nick and Luke absolutely made our wedding the evening it was. I couldn’t now imagine our wedding without you. Absolutely fantastic and fab guys. Thank you so so much for your wonderful sets, all our guests couldn’t stop talking about you the following morning"

"After almost a week on we are still receiving compliments about how wonderful you all were at our wedding! We booked Carl over 3 years ago to play at our wedding and he certainly didn't disappoint. The atmosphere was out of this world and the surprise Saxophone for my now husband was the icing on the cake. Can't wait to see you all live again one day"

"We had Carl as a 4 piece band (Piano, Bass, Saxophone, and Drums) at our wedding and he provided amazing entertainment! Everyone has made comments on how amazing the band was and how they had never seen so many people dancing at a wedding! The atmosphere was perfect and Carl even changed parts of the songs to be about us, which was a really nice touch. We couldn't recommend Carl more."

"We just wanted to thank you again for such an amazing night. You and the band were absolutely amazing and we couldn't have asked for anything more. Everyone enjoyed themselves and said how brilliant you were. We all danced like we hadn't danced for the last 18 months!! Thanks for learning that song too. We had a wonderful wedding and this just topped it all off!"

"Carl and the band were absolutely incredible at our wedding on Saturday! The dance floor was full all night and everyone loved the music. Carl was so lovely on the lead up to the wedding especially with having to postpone. So amazing, 100% recommend and cannot wait to see you guys playing somewhere again soon. Thanks so much"
