Parties & Events

Private Parties and Special Events

Guaranteed to add an air of sophistication to any party, dinner or corporate event, you won’t be disappointed to include the piano playing of Richard Sully in your plans. With a vast amount of experience behind him you’ll be impressed with his hugely varied repertoire which is always skilfully delivered. From the great standards of the past through to the current hits of the day, Richard always has something up his sleeve to please a crowd!

If a piano is unavailable at the venue, Richard will provide all necessary portable piano equipment and PA at no extra cost and can sound like anything from a solo cocktail pianist to a fully fledged jazz trio depending on your taste or requirement. Being portable, the equipment allows live piano music to be played at all sorts of venues and events, from Thames cruisers to medieval castles, from house parties to large corporate gatherings and launches.

 

‘Hi Richard, thanks for making our night so special, we had an absolute ball
thanks to you. Can’t believe AP got up and sang as it was such an emotional
day for him. Great picture, will be added to the retirement albums!!’
