Nate has been playing piano as long as he can remember. Bringing joy with music is his greatest passion and so he loves making music his full-time career!
Nate is both classically and jazz trained, and as a result can adapt to every situation. He is experienced in reading crowds, and adapts on the spot to make sure he is setting the right mood for the event and making everyone happy! He takes requests on the spot and even leads sing-a-longs.
He is most famous for his party trick, playing piano upside down and backwards. This always gets phones and cameras out and will get people talking!
He also loves singing Rat Pack, jazz and light pop to make the music even more engaging and energetic.

Nate graduated with a music composition degree from Concordia College (Moorhead, MN). He was both classically and jazz trained here and among his accolades was winning the concerto competition. This allowed him to play Britten's Piano Concerto with the Concordia Orchestra. He also had numerous original compositions debuted by many different ensembles.

After college, Nate played piano on high end cruise ships for three years, traveling to over 65 countries in the process and playing with world-class musicians and entertainers, such as Melissa Manchester and Wayne Newton.

Nate has recorded 6 piano albums of his beautiful and relaxing original compositions and arrangements. He has recorded over 100 YouTube videos that are fun and unique, from eating hot peppers while playing piano, to his greatest hit medleys, to fun covers of popular tunes.

He prides himself on his versatility, professionalism and grace under pressure. He has played for countless weddings and high end corporate events, and works great with event planners. He is available to take any request, even on the spot, and his experiences ranges from classical and jazz, to top 40 and country. Nate prides himself and always showing up early and catering to requests to make every event flourish.

There aren’t enough superlatives to describe his skill :) He did background music which helped to set s great tone for my husbands 60th birthday party - we had many theater and choir people there and he played and they sang for hours! :) Everyone loved him and we were blown away by his ability to vamp and play any request. Highly recommended! (But don’t book him on any nights when we want him to return!) :)

Nate was fantastic! He had very few requests of him and just let him do his thing; he's the professional! We had a beautiful grand piano in our venue and wanted to utilize it. Our guests recognized his music, could see them bobbing a long to the beat and he played a variety to appease different generations. He came early and played longer than he had to. We never asked him to but did it for a seamless transition from cocktail hour to dinner. I'm finding reasons to have more parties just so I can have Nate come play for us again. Nate, thank you! You made our evening and more memorable and our guests loved it!

Nate is wonderful. He came early to get himself situated. Very professional and obviously knows how to handle a crowd of people. HE added exactly what we wanted to our holiday open house. Charming and very talented. We will have him back again. We entertain a lot and usually have 50 to 100 guests in the house. Nate is perfect for any occasion and we will certainly have him back. Our guest we impressed by his talent but he did not insist on being in the lime light. People came and went and stayed and he just made them all comfortable and welcome. Thank You Nate!!

Nathan arrived on time, played beautifully, and played selections geared to our crowd and the flow of the event. When the Governor was late, and we needed to put the program schedule on hold, Nathan played an hour longer and trusted us to pay him later. Thank you, Nathan.
