Eric Richards - the piano man

Portrait Eric Richards transforms a fine location into a place just brimming over with charm and atmosphere.

Many events can be rounded off perfectly by live music - private or business anniversaries, birthday celebrations, dinner or cocktail parties. Eric Richards provides a fitting setting with the finest background music consisting of evergreens, standards, international hit songs, jazz and blues, songs from musicals and a little classic.

Eric Richards also hits the right note for you and your guests at parties in your own home: first class piano music unobtrusively played but nevertheless creating a very special tone!

Reviews of the piano man:


Not only can Eric Richards create a wonderful setting at your champagne reception or play unforgettable piano music and love songs while you and your guests are dinning (and at small parties even music to dance to as well) but he can also enhance the tone of the wedding ceremony itself! Here are some pieces that are popular with my customers at present:

- Ave Maria – Bach (Praeludium No. 1)

- Pachelbel’s Canon

- River in You (Yiruma)

- Comptine d'un autre été : L'Après-midi (Amélie)

- I only want to be with you

You can of course request me to play your favourite music: if possible, I will play it!

Should you prefer vocals I have singers with whom I work regularly

e.g. male singer:

- Can you feel the Love tonight?

- Is this Love?

- Just the way you are (Bruno Mars)

- Somewhere over the Rainbow/Wonderful World

and many more. If we don't know it, if possible we learn it.

e.g. female singer:

- Hallelujah

- Ja (Silbermond)

- Dir gehört mein ganzes Herz

- (To) Make you feel my Love (Adele)

- Du lässt mich sein wie ich bin

and very many more. Again, if we don't know it, if possible we learn it.

Simply mail me or call 0049 171 7440989 to discuss your plans...........

My News

Now it's spring time and the wedding season is underway again and apart from the usual offerings of piano solo (Pachelbel's Canon in D, River Flows In You, etc.) in the church or registry office I am now pleased to announce that I shall be accompanying wedding singer Vanessa Cymerman at many weddings.

On May 28th I'm playing a wedding at Dieckmann's with a little help from my friends! Apart from music for the reception and dinner we shall be playing a two hour dance set with vocals, drums, bass, guitar, sax and piano - main emphasis: Beatles!

Over the last few years I have played at numerous Golden Weddings, 80th and 90th birthdays as well as many performances in retirement homes. Now from these experiences I have prepared a excellent alternative set for the older generation with such gems as Bel Ami, Lili Marlene, Tanze mit mir in dem Morgen, Aber Dich gibt’s nur einmal für mich: everything is there from pop to even a little classical music…………

Here's a demo recording of Stevie Wonder's song All in Love is Fair with Dian Pratiwi on vocals and here is our new demo medley.
