Hire Graham Cordiner with Hireaband

He is at home performing in his elegant style for pre dinner at events, cocktail parties, corporate launches and of course weddings.

Graham's repertoire is extensive and includes jazz, classical and pop selections.

Coupled with Graham's great charm and warm personality, Graham's experience can be relied on to deliver an exceptional level of entertainment.

He is a highly experienced, classically trained musician who has and does play with some of the UK's best bands in the rock pop blues country classical folk and jazz fields of music Most recently he has played piano for Paul Buchanan of the Blue Nile with whom he toured in The Netherlands and Belgium to promote Paul's recent album (largely for voice and piano) and with Mary K Burke at Loch Lomond Folk Festival and for the launch of a Congolese/Jazz Fusion CD.

Graham's interest and love for music is very diverse but he knows how to bring this expertise and varied background to the service of discreet quality background piano music.

The choice of music, played with taste and style, comes from years of experience in knowing what is suited to the occasion: Sinatra/Nat King Cole etc jazz standards, Elton John , Billy Joel, Ballads the odd Classical piece and more recent pop material where this adapts well for the piano (eg Alicia Keys If I Ain't Got You, Rhianna Unfaithful)

The mix can of course have a slant in accordance with the wishes of the client/organiser. Punctuality, appropriate dress, quality equipment (including a top of the range digital piano where the venue does not have a suitable piano) good attitude and awareness of the demands of the occasion are a high priority, including appropriate sound level which you are encouraged to comment suits you as the evening unfolds.

As Graham puts it: 'It is your evening and I am happy to ensure that I'll do everything I can to make it that bit more special for you and your guests '

Graham Cordiner

The service provided by Hireaband was great. The pianist we hired, Graham Cordiner, was fantastic - a real professional. Both his playing and his repertoire were exceptional and we would we strongly recommend hiring Graham for any function. Katie & Martin Sweeney - The Crowne Plaza
