I have been a professional musician in the GTA (Toronto and environs) for over twenty years. As a keyboardist/singer I've led my own band, concentrating on the special event industry: weddings and corporate events (fundraising balls, employee recognition etc.)

Classically-trained, I perform for all aspects of the wedding day: solo or duo for ceremonies, jazz duo/trio for cocktails and dinner and my party band for the dance portion.

My band is generally 6 to 8-piece in number but we perform as large as 19-piece, providing great dance music for weddings of all sizes. The musicians are all full-time professionals - and that makes a big difference! With a repertoire of over 1600 songs and a wealth of experience, we keep the dance floor full. Read less

I booked Graham almost one year and half in advance because I loved the way he played jazz. He was reasonably priced and great to work with. He also was able to do a duet with my sister who sang my first dance. He was able to do one practice with her and it went great! They really set the vibe during our cocktails! Thanks so much Graham!!!

We found Graham at a venue open house where he was playing background music. After doing some rearch and listening to his music, we decided he was perfect. Graham offers electric keyboard, 3 piece band with keyboard, bass and sax/flute, 9 piece band and even 9 piece band with vocals. Whatever you need he can provide.

We selected Graham and his 3 piece band for the ceremony, reception and dinner music. Of course, being the younger generation, the bride and groom wanted music that wasn't so traditional. Graham knew almost everything they wanted and when he didn't know it (or wasn't up to his standards) he would practice and/or suggest other options that were as good or even better.

Graham is interesting to work with. He's not a formal, need a contract and half the fee now kind of person. He respects you as a client and believes a handshake and your word is as good as any formal contract. Thus, you wonder if he is really as good as he seems. And he is!

A week or so before the wedding, he contacts you to ensure everything is in place, answer any questions and make sure whatever you need is ready. He arrives early, gets set up, then disappears and reappears looking quite dapper in his performance suit!

His band members were friendly, professional and did a lovely job. They were able to move quickly and efiiciently between the ceremony location, reception hall and back to the ballroom for dinner with minimal disturbance or musical breaks.

Great job Graham! Many thanks for being part of our special day.
