Jazz Funk Band Winchester

Jazz Funk Band Winchester Louisa Revolta Band Steve Christie Joe Pickering

Jazz Funk Band Winchester ‘THE LOUISA REVOLTA BAND’ can be hired as either a two piece (female vocals/sax/flute/drums + Piano/bass), a three piece (vocals/sax + piano + drums) or a four piece (vocals/sax, piano, bass and drums!)

We are a very versatile group of performers including:

Louisa Revolta (Vocals/Sax/Flute), Steve Christie (Piano/Bass keyboard/Organ), Joe Pickering (Drums) and Doug Revolta (Double Bass)

We can perform a wealth of music in varying styles, and can learn special requests very quickly (for a first dance, for example).  As a duo, Louisa and Steve can provide music for a wedding ceremony, corporate party or product launch.  They both have wide experience playing for funeral services and wakes.  Please contact Steve at stevechristiepianist@gmail.com or call 07530 532767 for more information.

We can play background music for a dinner, gala, or special event. We can also play for Christmas parties and corporate occasions. Themed nights and events are also enhanced by our music, and Louisa and the band are always willing to dress accordingly to suit an occasion.   Steve Christie holds the accolade of being able to play literally thousands of songs from memory – always a good one to break the ice – ask your guests to try and catch him out!

Louisa Revolta is an amazing Jazz singer, but is equally at home singing pop, blues or even classical.  She is a classically trained singer, and both herself and Steve are classically trained pianists.

Here is a recording of ‘Seven Days’ by Craig David, played in our own Jazz arrangement:

For more information and to see some videos and hear more sound clips, see our web page: http://stevechristiemusic.com/louisarevolta.html

We will travel to anywhere in Hampshire, Dorset, Wiltshire, Surrey or Sussex, and are prepared to travel to London and anywhere else (with travel expenses)

As a Southampton Funeral Organist, what can I offer you?

I have been a Southampton Funeral Organist for over 20 years, playing for Funerals and Cremations many Churches and the Crematoriums around the Southampton area.

Provided the Organ is in good working condition, I am able to play it.  Otherwise, I have a Yamaha Keyboard with fantastic organ sounds.

Any Hymns required are no problem, and I have a lifetime’s experience playing for and accompanying singers professionally.    All Hymns are given proper introductions which will be obvious to the congregation.

Prior to the ceremony I can either play organ preludes or soft reflective piano pieces, and for the Entry, Reflective and Exit music, you can choose anything you like. Pop, Jazz, Classical etc.  During the Committal, I usually play some soft, peaceful music, but whether you have this is entirely up to you.

For Roman Catholic and other services in Church, I can play for a Requiem Mass, and similarly, will play soft music during Communion if you so wish.

CDs/Ipods are great, what could be better than having a real live musician playing music that is tailored especially?

You and your family could be looking for a piece of film music, or an obscure song which is not available either as sheet music, or even on CD or download.  If you can provide me with the film clip, I can work the music out for you for no extra charge.

Prices for a standard 30-45 minute Funeral service start at £75 – No VAT applicable. Please email me at stevechristiepianist@gmail.com  or call 07530 532767.

Once a booking is made it is no problem to arrange a meeting to discuss music, and I can play some pieces for you if you are undecided.

If a venue doesn’t have an organ or piano, this is no problem as I can supply an excellent Yamaha Piano Keyboard and BOSE speaker system, which is both incredible sounding, and very compact, so can fit into the smallest of areas! This comes as standard with any booking for no extra cost. I always bring it with me in case of emergencies, even if the venue has a piano.

You can also hire my stylish Baby Grand Piano Shell (which is basically a nice looking enclosure for a keyboard) which comes completely flat packed, and can be carried up small staircases.

As a New Forest Wedding Pianist, what can I offer you?

I have been a New Forest Wedding Pianist for over 20 years, and have played in all the major venues in and around the New Forest, including Limewood, Burley Manor, Rhinefield House, Careys Manor in Brockenhurst, Beaulieu Road Hotel, Beaulieu Motor Museum (The Domus) and the Forest Lodge Hotel, Lyndhurst.

I can also play Church Organ, and have played all around the New Forest area for Weddings and other occasions for many years.  Provided the Organ is in good working condition, I am able to play it.  Otherwise, I have a Yamaha Keyboard with fantastic organ sounds.

I can play music on the day which will fit the Bridal Entrance perfectly, so there’s no need to worry about choreographing your walk-in to the second.   If the Bridal Party takes it’s time to process in, I will play and can extend any piece of music as I’m playing so it fits. Similarly, if everyone rushes in (nerves sometimes do get the better of you!) I can play to fit, and will come to an appropriate close once everyone has arrived and is in position, so it all looks meticulously rehearsed!

If a venue doesn’t have a piano, this is no problem as I can supply an excellent Yamaha Piano Keyboard and BOSE speaker system, which is both incredible sounding, and very compact, so can fit into the smallest of areas! This comes as standard with any booking for no extra cost. I always bring it with me in case of emergencies, even if the venue has a piano.

As a Southampton Wedding Pianist, what can I offer you?

I have played for all of the major venues in and around Southampton who hold civil ceremonies, including Southampton Registry Office, the Art Gallery, and De Vere Grand Harbour Hotel.  I can also play Church Organ, and have played all around Southampton for Weddings and other occasions for many years.  Provided the Organ is in good working condition, (all of them in Southampton are) I am able to play it. Otherwise, I have a Yamaha Keyboard with fantastic organ sounds.

Southampton Wedding Pianist

Steve Christie playing Southampton Art Gallery’s Steinway Grand Piano

 

Southampton Art Gallery (see above) is a fantastic venue for a wedding ceremony and drinks reception, and they have a superb black Steinway Grand Piano which is tuned regularly, and they are usually able to move it to either end of the gallery.  If this isn’t possible, I can either supply a wireless speaker system (to mike up the piano) and pipe the music to the other end of the gallery, or I can provide a Yamaha digital piano keyboard – all for no extra charge.

If you are having your ceremony at Southampton Registry Office in Bugle Street, you may not have thought about having live music owing to the relatively small space in the venue.  However, my keyboard set up is able to fit into the smallest of spaces and the sound I achieve is very close to the sound of a real concert grand, as I use Yamaha digital pianos and high quality BOSE speaker equipment.

See here for my compact keyboard setup information.

Southampton Wedding Pianist  The Medieval Merchant’s House in French Street, Southampton is also a great venue for Wedding Ceremonies and Receptions, and where wedding ceremony music is important to you, what could be better than having a real live musician playing music that is tailored for you?

You and your partner could be looking for a piece of film music, or an obscure song which is not available either as sheet music, or even on CD or download.  If you can provide me with the film clip, I can work the music out for you.

Pianist at Rivervale Barn Yateley

Pianist at Rivervale Barn YateleyI have been hired as a Pianist at Rivervale Barn Yateley on many occasions, and the photo above shows my portable Grand Piano Shell in situe in their Wedding Ceremony room.

I can also set it up for the Wedding Breakfast area (and use a keyboard on a stand for the ceremony and/or drinks reception.)

My bespoke piano recording service has also been called upon for use at the Rivervale Barn, where I recorded a selection of music for a Wedding Ceremony.

Please email or call me for more details:

Tel: 07530 532767

Email: stevechristiepianist@gmail.com

The venue has easy access to the rooms, and my piano shell is such that it all comes flatpacked and fits into a small car, so can be brought in through the smallest of doorways and up any stairs.  The piano shell adds a touch of class to the proceedings, and is a fraction of the cost of hiring a real grand piano, and as it is used to house a digital piano keyboard (Yamaha) there is no expensive tuning costs involved!

I use a Bose speaker system to give a realistic sound to the piano, which while crystal clear, is not intrusive to general speech or social gatherings, offering the perfect accompaniment to any wedding, party or corporate event.

On November 29th 2014, Steve Christies wRong Playing Live Piano – Louisa Revolta (saxophonist) and I played a twenty minute set of brand new material from mine and Dave Yates’s forthcoming album ‘GHOST I.D.’ which we will be releasing under the name of PRUFROCK.  For this gig, part of the Forbidden Planet evening at Chaplin’s / Cellar Bar in Boscombe, I played piano to pre-taped accompaniment (owing to Dave’s absence due to illness) and coined the phrase ‘Pianoeoke’ which seems to become a brand new genre of music!  Hooray!

Louisa played Sax on ‘Love Song To Emu’, and I played ‘Met A Girl, Crazy For Bees’, ‘Summer Is A Coming In’, ‘Daffodils’, and ‘Witches Mildren’ which had some of the original wRong line-up playing flute on the backing track.   A limited edition EP entitled ‘Tomorrow Pylons’ will be out soon on purple 7″ vinyl on Regale Records, and the new PRUFROCK album will be soon available on CD with booklet, and digital download.

Pianist for a wedding at Stanton House

Pianist for a Wedding at Stanton House

I was hired as a Pianist a for Wedding at Stanton House, and played for Becky and Chris’s fab wedding, including their drinks reception and their wedding breakfast!

The choice of music for the day was a wide selection of old and new styles, including lots of music from Disney’s ‘Frozen’, which was popular with parents and children alike! Other choices included tunes by David Bowie, Adele, Billy Joel, The Beatles, Michael Jackson, Neil Young, Nick Drake, Carole King, Alicia Keys, Kings of Leon and Coldplay.

During the wedding breakfast, I performed my Ice Breaker Quiz, in which I play a medley of 15 TV themes and in teams, the guests try to work out what they are!

I played my Yamaha Keyboard for the Drinks Reception, and had the Portable, flat-pack Grand Piano Shell set up ready for when the guests entered the Wedding Breakfast. The keyboard was moved from the Drinks area to the Wedding Breakfast, into the Piano Shell before the guests arrived.

The venue itself is excellent for Weddings and Corporate Events, and lends itself to having live entertainment. A pianist or small band would fit perfectly into this venue for the wedding reception.

It has loads of free parking, and easy access for the piano shell and equipment, which is always a bonus.

All the best for the future to Becky and Chris!
