About this Act

Paul Rahme has over 13 years' experience performing on his own, in bands and with singer/songwriters. He is fully classically trained but plays mostly by ear. Based in Birmingham he travels to other locations in or around the Midlands to play at wedding ceremonies/receptions, civil partnerships, luncheons, restaurants, corporate occasions, private parties, etc.

His repertoire covers all genres, including classical, jazz, contemporary, to the latest pop songs and he can take requests from guests. In the event that you would like him to play a special song which he does not already know, he will happily learn it prior to the occasion.

If there is not an adequate piano at the venue, he will bring along a digital piano with a portable stand. The digital piano has an organ sound if required, eg. if traditional music is required at a wedding ceremony.

He can also arrange a female vocalist to form a lounge duo if required, and/or a drummer or percussionist for a more uptempo feel.

Music between sets is available on a CD or mp3 player.
