With a vast experience of performing both solo and in various bands, Mark performs his own rock piano arrangements of classic pop and rock songs from the last 50 years, from the Kinks to the Kaiser Chiefs!
Far from being laid-back, many of his arrangements have been adapted to give them a more aggressive rock piano feel and are often unassociated with solo piano.
This includes his own interpretations of songs by The Clash, The Kaiser Chiefs, and Razorlight as well as classics by Billy Joel, Elton John, Joe Jackson and Scouting for Girls.
Using a Roland electric piano together with a 'stomp' box, all performances are live with no backing tracks.

Thank you Mark the Piano Man playing at Coombe Lodge for our wedding last week. Absolutely superb!! Full repertoire of tunes to suit the occasion and various parts of the day from welcoming guests, to walking down the aisle. Fully recommend Mark - top pro!!!
We can't thank you enough for being a part of our day and keeping the guests all happy. We had the most amazing day and all the guests commented on how nice and different it was to not have a disco blaring and how amazing your playing was, it was thoroughly enjoyed. I will certainly pass your details on and if we can think of an excuse to have another occasion will certainly contact you first!!
The music at our wedding was an important part of both the ceremony and the evening reception, so we wanted to ensure it was right. Many thanks for playing the piano so beautifully at our wedding ceremony, but also ensuring a good proportion of our repertoire of music was played so well in the evening. You made our day run so smoothly. In the run up to the wedding we met with Mark a number of times and went through our music options for the wedding ceremony.
