Al J. is an experienced professional pianist singer based in Edinburgh, performing everything from Sinatra to Elton....Robbie and everything inbetween!

Providing quality wedding and corporate entertainment throughout Scotland and the UK, Al will play piano and sing for the duration of the champagne reception or wedding breakfast.

Al is completely self contained and can provide everything - electric portable piano, microphones and PA system, which means venues and clients do not require to have a piano.

For up to two hours without a break, al will deliver piano and vocal renditions of classic hits from the last seven decades. Everything from Ratpack standards like 'That's Amore', 'Fly Me To The Moon', 'New York New York' to classic pop from artists like Elton John, Billy Joel and Robbie Williams.

Al can be quite unobtrusive or can be more 'audience participation' and 'sing-a-long' if your guests are so inclined!...you'd be amazed what a couple of glasses of champagne does for the inhibitions! Forget having piped in CD music, spontaneity like this can only ever be provided by a live entertainer.

A natural warm charm is essential to entertain and connect with your audience. Reading and engaging with a crowd is a key part of what al does and, by selecting suitable songs from an extensive and varied repertoire, his goal to ensure people of all ages enjoy themselves to the max! Facebook
