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.
"We were lucky enough to have Carl play at our wedding back in December and I can honestly say we could not have been more delighted. The dancefloor was packed from the very first song all the way through to the last one, with the added bonus of some Christmas songs along the way. All our guests have commented to us about how fantastic Carl and his band were! You should 100% book these guys for your weddings!!"

"We just wanted to say thanks again to you and the band for your amazing music on the night. It was perfect, exactly what we wanted and everyone commented after how good you guys were and how it was the best wedding they’d been to for dancing. We’ll definitely recommend you to anyone getting married in the future and we’ll no doubt see you playing in Leamington in the near future"

"A huge thank you from the McClymonts to Carl and his band! Simply put, they absolutely made our wedding reception and they were one of the top things my friends and family couldn’t stop talking about. Everyone had sore feet the next day because the dancefloor was never empty when Carl was playing! The energy the guys have when playing is incredible and it’s not just the fantastic music, it’s the pure entertainment of a live set that really made it an amazing and unforgettable evening for us and our guests. Thank you so much to Carl and the guys, anyone thinking of booking a live band for their event should not look any further for a professional, talented group that will not disappoint!"

"We had the Carl Sinclair Trio for our wedding on Saturday! We can not recommend these guys enough, there wasn’t a single moment the dance floor was empty when the band played, they made songs personal to us and there have been so many positive comments about the music at our wedding. Thank you for helping make it the best day of our lives, it was so amazing seeing so many of our friends and family enjoying themselves!"
