Andrea Shaut is one of the Hudson Valley's most in-demand pianists and organists. With experience performing at hundreds of weddings and a network of highly-respected musicians, Andrea is an excellent choice for wedding ceremonies and cocktail hours. Andrea has a very large repertoire ranging from the standard classical repertoire through contemporary popular music - all tastefully arranged to add the perfect touch to your wedding. Andrea works closely with her clients and is very detail-oriented in terms of the planning for a ceremony.

Beyond weddings, Andrea's resume includes being the pianist for the world-famous West Point Military Academy Glee Club, a role that has led her to many incredible performance opportunities for important government and military officials and dignitaries, as well as to exciting opportunities such as performing at The Grand Ole Opry in Tennessee with country music superstar Trace Adkins. Andrea is also the music director for a church in the Hudson Valley, where she plays piano, organ, and directs the church choir.

INFO FOR CEREMONY MUSIC

What ceremony music arrangements can you provide?
Instrumental - Duo, Instrumental - Solo, Instrumental - Trio, Soloist / Vocalist
What instruments does your group play?
Flute, Organ, Piano, Saxophone
What is your usual attire?
I wear wedding-appropriate attire, which depending on the client's requirements, can be customized as necessary.
Do you offer live sample performances or CDs?
If you are in the Hudson Valley, I am more than happy to share with you my performance schedule to come hear me in person. Otherwise, I recommend that people check out my website at www.andreashaut.com. The site has performance MP3s - including some solo classical piano music well-suited for weddings.
How much time do you usually need for setup?
If I am playing solo piano, I only require a few minutes of setup time. Playing with a keyboard requires that I will probably arrive about an hour prior to my starting time.
How much space do you usually require?
As a solo pianist, as long as there is enough room to sit comfortably at the piano, that is plenty of room. If I will be providing a keyboard, there will need to be a nearby electrical outlet, but once again, I do not require very much space to perform.
Do you charge for travel expenses? If yes, how much do you charge?
Any expenses associated with travel will be incorporated into my stated fee. There will be no additional charges beyond the price that you are quoted.

Andrea Shaut is so talented! She is so talented in picking the right tunes to play during our ceremony/cocktail hour. Her versatility in going from jazz to rock to funk is one that cannot be beat. She was just another one of the pieces of the puzzle that made our wedding complete. Thank you Andrea and we recommend her and Kazz Music Orchestra!

We booked Kazz Music and Andrea's cocktail hour was an additional benefit - a no-brainer decision. She played wonderfully, and, despite the fact that cocktail hour is a chaotic, really fun time, she still managed to shine. Definitely book Andrea when you book Kazz and you will not regret it - not just from an ease of coordination standpoint, but also because she is an awesome musician.

Andrea was amazing! She was available last min and was easy to get ahold of. She was very flexible and was able to do modern songs, as well as, older/classical stuff. She was helpful in my decision making when it came to pick a song. She was very professional. We couldn't have been happier!

Andrea provided the ceremony music for our wedding in March 2014 in Poughkeepsie, N.Y. Andrea was amazing! She walked us through the whole process, giving us the opportunity to tailor the ceremony music to our needs. She was flexible, attentive and truly cared that our ceremony was exactly what we wanted. We received so many compliments on the music! The best part was that because Andrea had explained all of the music selections to us so thoroughly, I entered the church without any concern or stress about it and could just focus on my handsome husband to be at the end of the aisle!

Andrea did a fabulous job playing our ceremony. We went a non traditional route with our ceremony music, picking three Motown songs. We were very appreciative that she was willing to be flexible and do something different. She took the songs and made them work perfectly. I would absolutely recommend her!!

Andrea did my ceremony and cocktail hour. Couldn't be happier with how everything turned out. I was behind on getting things to her and she was still able to accommodate above and beyond my expectations. Andrea ended up writing a solo piano arrangement of Tenderness a few days before your wedding which added to how perfect my day was. If you book the Kazz music orchestra it's a no brainier to book Andrea and anyone else in the group for ceremony and cocktail hour.

Andrea played at our ceremony before joining the band, Kazz Music, to play at our reception. The ceremony was music was delightful and exactly what we had hoped for. In addition to playing the somewhat traditional classical songs that we had asked for Andrea was incredibly accommodating in helping us add some very special personal touches. We had an uncle sing a Beatles song at the end of the service and Andrea graciously came early to help rehearse the song; we needed extensive wiring, sound and mics to be set up for our outdoor garden ceremony, all of which Andrea and Kazz made sure was done professionally and hours in advance. Our ceremony was exactly as we pictured it to be (or better.)
