Shopping for a digital piano? I recommend the Casio Privia PX160BK 88-Key Full Size Digital Piano.
Two weeks before our wedding at Kanapaha, we heard Eric playing for another wedding and were immediately taken. After the other wedding, I came over and spoke with Eric as he loaded his equipment. He was very kind, courteous, professional, and knowledgable. We visited his website with the very useful music planning page (use it!) and booked him for our wedding. The day of he arrived looking very sharp and had his (very high quality) equipment ready to deploy. I was so busy I did not see him again until he was already playing during the seating of our guests. He adapted his music to the flow of the ceremony and was completely aware of appropriate timing. His music made the ceremony feel warm and genuine, and having had him play, I would insist that any friend of mine be sure to give Eric a call. Wonderful music, professional, no hassle for a very busy event, what more could we want? Thank you Eric!” ~ Joseph, Kanapaha Botanical Gardens, Gainesville, November 2008
For venues without a quality, well-tuned piano, I can bring my portable, digital piano for just $150.
My digital piano sounds exactly like a perfectly tuned grand piano. It has all the same notes as a full grand piano, but takes up much less space (the piano with me seated on the bench is 5′ wide and 3′ deep – it is a stage piano similar to the picture above). My piano has the black, velvety drape to hide cords, the stand, books, etc. My goal is to make the set-up elegant and unobtrusive.
If you’d like to hear how a digital piano sounds, you can listen to a sample from my Wedding Ceremony Music Guide, which was recorded on a similar digital piano:
I also have sound equipment that will cover the needs of almost any setting (microphones, mixer, amplifier, speakers, cords, and adapters).
Eric played for my wedding in October of 2008. I was a little worried, because the ceremony was outside and the nearest outlet was a long way away. Eric made sure everything was set up correctly without hideous cords in the way for me to trip over! His music was absolutely beautiful and he was right on cue for everything. I couldn’t have asked for anything better! Thank you Eric.” ~ Kimberly, Rustic Manor, Newberry, October 2008
