Klay The Pianist

Klay The Pianist
Location London
Starting from £240.00

Since winning a MOBO for his band The Jazz Steppers in 1998, Klay has worked with many big names including 5 years with legendary US vibe player Roy Ayers. His solo repertoire ranges from Fats Waller to Christina Aguilera, Gershwin to Elton John. If he doesn't know it he can busk it.

Part of his current repertoire is 'Music From The Great Depression' - 1920s, '30s themed - think Boardwalk Empire, Dancing On The Edge etc. and features the music of Billy Mayerl and George Gershwin. However, he is just as comfortable playing classics, pop, Latin, Film and TV themes and Jazz.

All prices are based on 2 hour set with Klay providing an electric piano and amplification. If there is a piano available at the venue then the advertised fee will be less.
