About Vendor

Learn more about this vendor for your event.

Currently serving Charlotte, NC and the East Coast, Kevin has been performing all over the US for nearly 25 years. Kevin has accompanied such entertainers as Jhn Legend, Adele, Luther Vandross, Reba McIntyre, and Andrea Bocelli. He has performed as a soloist with a variety of orchestras including the Tampa Bay Symphony Orchestra, Silicon Valley Symphony, Fresno Symphony, and the Pensacola Symphony Orchestra to name a few. Kevin has lived in musical cities across the country such as New York City, New Orleans, Washington, DC, and most recently San Francisco before moving to Charlotte in 2021. Kevin's primary background is as a pianist, Music Director, and conductor for Broadway musicals. He has accompanied such Broadway stars as Audra McDonald, Alice Ripley, Betty Buckley, Liz Callaway Kristen Chenoweth, Idina Menzel, Sutton Foster, Judy Kuhn and Laura Benanti among many others. While living in DC, Kevin was also the house pianist at the infamous Willard Intercontinental Hotel and was also one of the regular performers at the White House, the Vice-Presidential Mansion, the White House Correspondents Dinner, the Metropolitan Club, and The Georgetown Club. Kevin was the musical director at Mimi's American Bistro for 10 years, DC's only cabaret restaurant that featured nightly live professional singing servers. Kevin has also played for numerous Broadway National tours including Wicked, Book of Mormon, Annie, Something Rotten, The Addam's Family, Hamilton, as well as over 20 other shows. As a cocktail pianist, Kevin has played for hundreds of weddings, parties, business functions, fund-raisers, and other social gatherings around the US. Some of the people Kevin has played for and entertained in the DC area alone include former Presidents Bush, GHW Bush, Clinton, Obama, Vice-President Cheney, VA Governor & Senator Mark Warner, David Bradley, Chris Matthews, Tom Brokaw, Steven Spielberg, Tony Kushner, Goldie Hawn, Bernadette Peters, Elaine Paige, John Legend, Adele, and Brian McKnight to name a few. No performance is too small or large. I often play in-home private concerts or dinners for couples on their anniversary or other special occasions for larger groups. If you do not have a piano, I can arrange for one (if the space allows and at an additional cost) or bring an electronic piano and sound system. I also sing upon request and I have a variety of fun games such as Name That Tune, and Medley Time that really get your guests involved. I hope you will consider me for your upcoming event.

Review by Jeff R.

Wedding CeremonyReviewed on April 16, 2011From Alexandria, VA

Kevin was prompt, accommodating, and rolled with the punches. He played wonderfully. He was able to improve a few tunes with a trombone because the wedding was running a little late. It was a stormy day, and Kevin was able to play without interruption or complaint. Very talented, and very professional.

WeddingReviewed on June 27, 2009From Vienna, VA

Kevin was great to work with all around. He was easy to get in touch with, responsive to any and all questions we had, made great suggestions on music selections, and most importantly played beautifully. My wife and I would have no reservations about recommending Kevin to play at your event, everyone was very complimentary of his play during the wedding ceremony and afterwards in our cocktail reception. A+

Review by Margaret S.

Cocktail PartyReviewed on April 1, 2011From Washington, DC

He was terrific. Extremely talented and every guest was impressed with his song list and ease of transitions into songs. He was $ well spent and I was asked about his availability from many guests. We were more than pleased to have him for this group that is very particular with musicians. I wish I had another event to have play for us again.
