I’m looking for a piano player for our cocktail hour (or 1.5 hour) who is reasonably priced. So far, I have one quote for $400, which seems crazy to me for approx. 1 hour. Any one you can recommend?

That seems really high.
I’m not familiar with any pianists but I’m hoping someone else from the Hive can chime in.

Consider posting at local colleges that have music majors, or even contacting local piano teachers. I remember playing several receptions when I was in high school for closer to $50 an hour, and was thrilled to get that (I was only 16!). The bargain you can get probably depends on what kind of music you want, and how much experience the pianist has.

I know we are from different areas – but if it helps, I paid $150 per hour for my pianist…

May I ask what kind of music are you looking for? Jazz? or just music that will fit the cocktail hour?
I am a bride-to-be but also a pianist working to be a music therapist. Not sure what exactly you are looking for but if you want, you can email me [email protected].
If not, hope you find one!!! 🙂

Oops…I forgot to add…I’ve done many weddings before since I was in high school. I’ve played for ceremonies and receptions so yeah…haha 🙂
