About
Holidays are here and you need an entertainer for your party? Look no more! Alla is a virtuoso pianist and a musical comedienne who aims to please every client with her brilliant technique, enormous repertoire, elegance, class and charm. She recently has been named by "Trip Adviser" as "The best entertainment on NJ Shore". There are over 30 videos of her on YouTube under her name, Alla Axelrod, or under her subscription name (lovemypiano111) that displays her various performing styles, from classical to comedy. She holds MA in piano, composition and music theory and has been entertaining on stages for the past 30 years. She can play for hours without ever repeating herself. Her repertoire covers all kinds of piano genres: classical, jazz, ragtime, standards, Broadway, oldies, blues, pop, rock, movie tunes, Italian, French, Jewish, Irish, Russian and many other international favorites -- virtually anything one's heart desires. If the client wants a specific tune for the event, she will learn it. Her effortless improvisational style can be unobtrusive for a background at cocktail parties or corporate events or filled with brilliant flair and showmanship when she performs solo. She directed over 50 musicals in Tri-State area and on Broadway, given numerous solo recitals, been featured in many newspapers and magazines such as "National Geographic" and "Asbury Press", performed in many restaurants, hotels and clubs like the famous "Don't tell mama", "McLoones", "Plaza" and "Blue note". In 2012 she went on jazz tour to Europe with "Manhattan Jazz connection" and incomparable Gabrielle Stravelli. Every summer the crowds of devoted fans gather from all over the state and beyond for her notorious "Open Mike" at the historical "Nagle's" in Ocean Grove. If piano is not available, she brings a keyboard-synthesizer and an amplifier. Alla is also an experienced and knowledgeable church organist, your best choice for the church wedding ceremonies. She is a hilarious comedienne and available for parties that like cabaret type of "adult" humor. Check many samples of her comic songs on YouTube and her website.

Alla Axelrod is a professional through and through. She is talented, witty, and knows how to 'tickle the keys' or in our case, the 'keyboard'. She was a major part of making our special wedding day a success. The guests enjoyed her music throughout the ceremony (before, during and again afterwards while having dinner). The selections Alla was asked to play were presented in a most creative manner -- arrangements were tasteful -- many times our guests were singing along to songs of the 40's & 50's. All in all, Alla helped to make our wedding day more than memorable! I would recommend her to anyone planning a special event.

Alla was great!! She can play anything and has a wonderful personality. She can be sassy and that was just great with our crowd!! I would say she was the life of the party. My guests are still talking about her and how much they enjoyed her. If you are looking for boring, that is not Alla. She worked for over 4.5 hours and did not take one break! She interacted with my guests and a great time was had by all. I would absolutely hire her again!

Alla was absolutely perfect. She literally weathered the storm on the day of my event. The day was horrific -a virtual monsoon outside, but Alla was there looking beautiful and full of energy and came and did what she does best. She is a true professional, and performed beautifully. I would have Alla at my next event in a heartbeat. I've heard nothing but 10+ feedback from the guests. Thank you Alla!

Alla was great. She arrived a little early just to be prepared and we had a delightful conversation. She played beautifully through out the evening and my guest all commented on her selection and capabilities. She made the event very special for all of us and I would gladly hire her for our next event. I would recommend her to anyone!
