About David Zipse, virtuoso pianist
DAVID ZIPSE, virtuoso pianist & GOOD FOOT dance band

Virtuoso? Well, that's what the critics say:

"The music's best asset is VIRTUOSO Zipse at the piano..." -Jeff Murphy, News-Journal.


*WINNER* of the 2010 & 2011 "Bride's Choice Award" -Martha Stewart & WeddingWire.


Hello, I am a pianist who plays festivals, concerts, conventions, casinos, theaters, restaurants and clubs, as well as weddings, parties and corporate events. Besides playing solo piano or doing a one-man-band (w/ NO canned sequences) I also have a rock duo, a jazz trio, and an excellent dance/party wedding band.

You see, I just simply LOVE to play! As I tell my students, it's easy to be good at something if you love it. That's why I've been a full-time musician since graduating summa cum laude from Shenandoah Conservatory of Music. This IS my day job, and I love it!

I also play in church, and perform free at various fundraisers and charities, for talent is a gift, and what I do with it is my gift back.

Now I would be honored to provide the music for your wedding ceremony, reception, cocktail party, dinner dance or corporate event. From classical music for a ceremony to jazz for cocktails, from soft romantic music for dinner to dance party music for a reception, whatever you prefer, I know I can provide the perfect mix to please all your guests. I have a vast repertoire of over 1000 songs FROM MEMORY, (including Rhapsody in Blue) and am able to play most all requests.

But instead of my words, read what others say:

Wedding Ceremony in Wilmington, DE on 05/18/2013

Words can not describe how absolutely pleased we were with David. I had read many good revews prior to booking David and would have to agree, you can't go wrong selecting David for your entertainment for your event; I would highly recommend him. He was so accommodating, he had an extensive repertoire of music he played and I even sent him pieces that I did not see on his list and he accommodated every one either playing himself, or when I asked, had him play the original recording. We received so many compliments, some of the guests even asked for his card . He made our day extra special !" - Lizabeth M.

Wedding in Philadelphia, PA on 10/06/2012

"David was great. We hired David to play for our small-medium size wedding in downtown Philadelphia. We had a few special requests which he was able to accommodate, and otherwise let him read the party. David did a great job playing the party; everyone raved about how good he was. He was professional and accessible before the show and during. I highly recommend David for any event." - David K.

* funk * R&B * soul * rock * 80s & 90s dance * West Chester based dance rock party band Good Foot has been packing dance floors in South Eastern Pennsylvania, Maryland, and the New Jersey Shore for the past several years!

With Leon Spencer's soulful lead vocals, Chuck Whiteman singing and wailing on his saxophones, Mickey Rast's rockin' voice and pumpin' bass lines, Jimmy Littman's exquisite guitar riffs, and Doug Wolfe's consistent drumming, THIS BAND IS TIGHT! And with David Zipse on keyboards, this six piece band sounds like ten! These great musicians have fun playing together, and FUN IS CONTAGIOUS! If you or your guests love R&B, Motown, Oldies, Soul, Rock, Funk, Disco, Dance music from the 80's and 90's, as well as some reggae, blues and current hits, and you're looking to hire a wedding band or entertainment for your next party, definitely check this band out. With GoodFoot providing wedding music for your reception, or dance music for your holiday party, anniversary, birthday celebration or corporate event, your guests are sure to have FUN and DANCE the night away! "Good Foot was FANTASTIC! From our first contact through the day of our wedding, David made us feel totally at ease: he helped us to organize all the details from announcements to special songs to timing, and made great suggestions when we asked. Our wedding day was VERY hot, but the band didn't skip a beat - the dance floor was packed all night long! "Never Sit Down" is their motto and they mean it. We were blown away by this band's talent and energy. My mum said that she had never seen people race to the dance floor with more enthusiasm! Good Foot was undoubtedly the BEST decision we made in wedding planning, and my husband and I give our highest recommendation!" - Heather H., Wedding Reception in Conestoga, PA on 06/01/2013 "Wow... Good Foot exceeded my expectations. Not only were they super easy to work with and communicate with...but also VERY accommodating. Dave always answered my emails quickly and was very helpful. And on the day of the wedding reception, they had EVERYONE on the dance floor for the entire night. What a great band! I would highly recommend GOOD FOOT!!" - Amy F., Wedding Reception in Philadelphia, PA on 09/15/2012 "Good Foot was AWESOME! I found Good Foot after doing some research and decided they were the best for the job and boy did they deliver. The comment we received most from the guests was how great the band was. Like they say on their site, their goal is for people to never sit down and that was the case for our wedding 100%. The events coordinator at our reception location asked us for their info as a recommendation for other people planning their wedding because she said it was the best they had seen and they have seen a lot (Hershey Country Club)! Do not hesitate! They are well worth it!" - Tom R., Wedding Ceremony in Hershey, PA on 08/25/2012 "AMAZING!!! This band is professional, talented, and fantastic to work with. They were very flexible and great communication. Learned a few new songs just for us! They did a great job announcing entrances and events throughout the night. They played a good mix of oldies and current music and kept everyone dancing almost the entire night! I couldn't have asked for a more perfect experience with a band and they were VERY affordable! I was so pleasantly surprised. I want to throw a party just so I can hire them again. And I have already been recommending them to everyone I know who wasn't at the wedding to see them live. Gotten many compliments from the wedding guests. " - Michael J., Wedding Reception in Philadelphia, PA on 07/22/2012 "Not many bands can have the entire dance floor full ALL night long but they did! Our daughters wedding was fabulous because of Goodfoot. I wish I could afford to have a wedding every weekend to hear them play. All our friends told us how great they were too. Dave is the absolute nicest guy and so pleasant to work with over the phone or e-mail. They traveled three hours to play for us and then after playing till 11pm, packed up and drove 3 hours home, not many bands are willing to do that! I would highly recommend this band if you like the versatility of quite piano music, soft dinner music and great get down funky dance music! Goodfoot is the BEST!!!" - Patricia B., Wedding Reception in Reston, VA on 10/22/2011
