The Scot Ranney Trio we hired for our holiday party was AMAZING. They were very talented and played a great mix of holiday & jazz music. They were easy to work with and very friendly and the price was just right. I would definitley recommend them to others looking to hire a jazz trio.
"Scot has been a delight to work with. Professional and pleasant with every dealing. His performance was perfect and complimented the casual elegance of the venue." ~ Heather Magee, Vancouver, B.C.
"Scot was the centerpiece of the party. He's a fantastic musician, able and willing to play solo jazz piano as well as accompany singers. Scot was able to read anything put in front of him, to interpret, to embellish. He has whetted my appetite for a more relaxed sort of party with more solo piano." ~ Barbara Ryan, Bellingham

Scot led bands in Asia for much of the 90's, then moved back to Seattle where he played extensively several years.

While in Aspen, he also composed and recorded several soundtracks for children's NPR radio shows and performed at the jazz festival each summer.
After Scot moved back to the Northwest he picked up where he left off and now performs for private or public events throughout the area on a regular basis, including regularly playing for private events at one of Seattle's most prestigious restaurants, Canlis.
As a solo pianist or with a band, his music ranges from relaxing cocktail piano and Broadway standards to salsa parties and funky blues jams. His music and pleasant disposition are the reasons people have been hiring him for their parties, festivals, weddings, and other events for years.
