About this Act

As a performing musician Chris Bebbington has played in concert halls across the UK including The Colston Hall in Bristol, the Bridgewater Hall in Manchester and the Royal Albert Hall in London.

As a jazz pianist/vocalist his solo work heavily features the standard jazz repertoire but the artist’s flexibility means he can turn his hand to many different idioms. This, combined with many year’s experience of playing for cocktail receptions and dinners, means that he can instantly read a room and know exactly what to play to add a certain sparkle to any occasion.

Where no piano is available he uses the very best equipment on the market to deliver a superior musical product. He also strives to cultivate just the right ‘look’ and takes pains to dress in a manner that fits the occasion. His approach to entertaining is deeply personal and he likes to try to make every performance special by playing tunes from the hosts' favourite musical or tunes by their favourite bands.
