The music was perfect and many people said how they enjoyed it

Party, Hassop Hall

Currently one of the resident piano player / singers at Jools Holland's Jamhouse in Birmingham, Adrian also performs regularly at The Savoy Hotel in central London. Other regular performances include The Dorchester Hotel and Piano Soho in London.

He was the main act at the opening night of The Tickled Ivory piano bar in Guildford, and can be seen occasionally entertaining crowds in his "Duelling Pianos" act which was formed when Adrian supported Jools Holland at the opening night of The Jamhouse. As well as solo piano vocals, Adrian also performs in a duo with vocalist Caron Pascoe.

You sounded great and did a fantastic job. Well done.

Paul Ross, Presenter BBC London

Adrian has played many styles of music, including funk, blues, folk and boogie. His own 7 piece soul band Sugarbeet Traffic, was fronted by Ian Dury and The Blockheads' singer Ingrid Allman.

As well as recording with the folk singer Julie Felix, he also played keyboards and toured with the ska band Bad Manners. He has appeared on the BBC Radio 4 arts programme Loose Ends twice, and has performed on Edinburgh Festival's prestigious 'Late and Live' stage on numerous occasions alongside, amongst others, Bill Bailey and Eddie Izzard. Adrian has also performed in many European countries and cities over the past years.

"It was indeed a pleasure to work with you. The clients were very complimentary about your playing and singing!"

event at The Dorchester

Theatre productions such as Moonlight Serenade (national tour) allowed him to indulge his passion for swing jazz and boogie, while 'In The Midnight Hour', a sell out show in Europe and England, allowed him the same for the soul sound of the 60's.

Adrian wrote the original score for the play "I Frida" - the story of Frida Kahlo, which was performed at The Observatory Theatre in London.

Venues that Adrian has played at include:

  • The Devonshire Restaurant @ Gordon Ramsay, London
