Hello!



I'm a pianist/singer from Somerset, CO and I'm interested in performing at any of your venues. I've been performing throughout Colorado for decades. I have lengthy experience at dinner and cocktail party venues as well as legislative receptions, weddings, night clubs, private parties, corporate functions, concerts and farmers markets. I'm very professional about my work and I do work very hard at it. Unless otherwise requested, I wear a business suit when I perform and though my hair used to be very long, I'm now sporting a clean cut conservative look having donated my hair just minutes prior to performing a benefit concert for the grand opening of the new cancer hospital in Glenwood Springs.



I play classical, ragtime, stride, Gershwin, ballads, bossa nova, samba, world, R & B, motown, pop, bluegrass, boogie, funk, rock, Christmas/Holiday music...many familiar songs old and new. I'm particularly good at taking older songs and giving them a new feel or groove. I sing as well and will use rhythm tracks (recorded by me in my studio) to accompany some songs with a fuller, more lively and diverse sound. I'm also a composer and song writer and often include many of my own works in any performance. I have a variety of outstanding musical groups available as well.



If you'd like some third party referrals please contact Michele Kiley at Justice Snow's in Aspen (970-948-9209) or Joanna Mallory from the Snowmass Club (970-923-0915) or Alacia Gonzalez from Allred's in Telluride (970-728-7455), all for whom I've auditioned live recently. I also just finished a two year stretch as the house pianist at Fins Raw Bar in Glenwood Springs (970-945-7411). Sara Lewis is the resort manager at the Historic Redstone Inn for whom I performed in the grand dining room on Christmas Eve for a full house. You can reach her at (963-2526) for a reference as well. Pat Bingham hires all musicians at the Pitkin County Airport and you might contact her also at (970-920-5204)



I'm also an author and have some of my music videos on my author's page at amazon if you'd like to try them. On the right side of the page is a video player. Just beneath the player are tiny square thumbnails, one for each video. https://www.amazon.com/author/johnriger I only post my own compositions in accordance with copyright laws. I hope you'll like them and I hope that if ever you find a need for a pianist/lounge entertainer, please keep me in mind? I'll look very much forward to hearing from you. Thank you for your time and consideration.



Respectfully,

John Paul Riger
