About
Pianist, Guitarist, Singer, Entertainer, Performer.

My playing and singing reflects the passion I have for music and the love I have for people. I don't just play a song, I channel it, I connect with it, and I connect others through the deep relationship I have with music and with every song. I love to get people singing! When I play, I have a large flatscreen monitor either in front of me or beside me which provides the words in large print to thousands of songs, always ready to respond to requests from the full past century of music in America, covering many genres, including popular hits of today.

I always dress professionally (in most cases a black Tux, white shirt and bow tie, or when requested, Armani jeans, black shirt and Black Velvet Jacket), show up and check in with you no less than 30 minutes before performance time, one hour to 90 minutes if I am bringing and setting up my own equipment.

I do not charge for providing my own keyboard, speaker and microphone, as well as my own guitars (electric and acoustic, or just one, whatever we agree on) to the performance. I use Yamaha and Roland keyboards, Fender and Taylor guitars, a quality speaker and mic.


I am an award-winning jazz, popular and rock pianist with over a thousand songs in repertoire, specializing on Standards (Frank Sinatra, Ella Fitzgerald, Barbara Streisand, Elton John, etc.) Musicals (George Gershwin, Cole Porter, Stephen Sondheim, Andrew Lloyd Webber, etc.), Many years of playing piano for restaurants (ambiance), private parties (festive, often with singers, professional or attendees who want to sing), weddings, bar mitzvahs, holiday parties, commanding performance for a "Gloriously Gershwin" concert tour featuring custom personalized performance of Rhapsody in Blue and providing accompaniment for ensemble of vocal soloists and dancers.

Elegant, kind, talented, enormous repertoire, sang well, and adapted well to the various moods and moments of our time of celebration. His musical keyboard was very nice, too, it sounded like we had a baby grand in the room. I'd heartily recommend to Mr. JD Sebastian to anyone needing a piano player who sings and whose music invites everyone in. He's an all around 5 star musician.

We were blown away! The musician, JD Sebastian, brought a beautiful full sized keyboard, rich sounding speaker and presented the words to songs on a flatscreen monitor as he played... he was so warm and inviting and sang so well we all just naturally sang along and had a wonderful time. His electric piano and speaker sounded exactly like a live grand piano and he wore a tux was just so elegant and yet so natural. We were so glad somebody recommended JD and highly recommend him to whoever needs a pianist-singer who comes ready to get everybody in the mood, singing and dancing!

Thank you, Alvin, for taking the time to share your kind review. I—as the musician—feel the same way about what a pleasure and inspiration it was to work with you and your brilliant, romantic and creative approach to romance, your chosen outdoor location and music. You made feel welcomed into your circle and brought out my best musical performance and energy through your kind and encouraging professional engagement, so here’s “5 stars” to you! Thank you and I hope we have an opportunity to team up again. That would be awesome. Take care of the both of you, JD

JD was sensational. Before our event he kept in contact to make sure he had times date location and contact information. On day of event he was fabulous. He had a room full of adults & children singing to his wonderful music. He has a vast repertiore of music from jazz to classics to rock and hip hop. All our guests commented on how wonderful he played. Thanks JD! We look forward to having you play at future celebrations.

JD played at our company Holiday Party again this year as he has for many years in and he was even more wonderful than before. Not only did he play both Christmas songs and jazz and pop standards but he played for an extra hour and a half because folks were having such a good time! He also played recorded songs whenever he took a break so there was continuous wall-to-wall music. We thought this was a wonderful touch to an already sparkling evening. We can't recommend JD Sebastian too highly! Believe me, you won't be disappointed. Bravo JD!

Fantastic! I’m so glad to see your positive feedback! I had a wonderful time with you all, as well. Thank you for your kind, encouraging words, and thanks for mentioning the “wall to wall” music I am now providing. It is a thrill for me to be able to play certain key songs as a DJ would, playing back the original recording rather than a piano nstrumental, every now and then, such as Bing Crosby’s Hawaiian Christmas Song. Your inspired feedback has inspired this minstrel even further: thank you! And a very merry Christmas to you and all of the families of NTC in Glendale, California!

JD went above and beyond for our musical live read. He learned 18 songs in a short amount of time and managed all of the cast's personalities and requests. JD is patient, kind, and extremely talented. He has a passion for music that shines through all of his work. I cannot say enough good things about JD! He is quick and easy to communicate with both through email, text, and on the phone. He is also a skilled guitarist. Even though his talent blew me away, my favorite thing about JD was his genuine, heartwarming personality. There's no doubt that JD and I will continue to work together in the future.

Wow, thank you for your most gracious words. I felt the same with you and all the amazing talented people who you brought on your hikebox Musical cat, and of course, our star nurse whose life inspired all of this, the great Nancy Bo! Blessings to you and yes let’s collaborate again, it will be my joy.

I rated JD Sebastian with 5 stars because with all what I was gong through yesterday. He made me feel with ease every tone and sound he played was perfect. This was a very emotional time for me and my family. I received so many compliments about JD and how perfect his musicians skills were. He definitely made the service yesterday, i would like to thank him for everything you have done. Starting with his skills, his professionalism, his accommodations with changes of song and his great attitude he came in with. Thank You JD

Thank you so much, Tony, for your kind words. It was an honor to play for the very sacred and deeply loving send off of your Mother, who I played for, as much as for you, your family and friends. I still feel the spirit that/who was in that place. A sweet sweet spirit. She's always with you, you know, always! God bless!
