Grand Piano Shell
If the venue you are holding your wedding or event doesn’t have their own piano, Steve can provide a fantastic shiny black ‘Grand Piano Shell’, into which his keyboard fits. This looks and sounds like a BABY GRAND, but comes flatpacked and can fit just about anywhere! All the parts are moveable on a small trolley and it takes approximately 10 minutes to assemble or dismantle. Ideal if you want a quick turnaround after a wedding meal, in order to make way for the evening entertainment. This definitely beats paying hundreds for the hire of a real grand piano!
See photos below – the piano shell is shown at a wedding drinks reception at Woburn Abbey Sculpture Gallery in September 2011, and before a wedding reception held at the Mansion House at the De Vere, Wokefield Park in Reading, 2010.
The sculpture gallery shown is huge, yet the piano sound filled the room in exactly the same way as a real concert grand. UPDATE AUGUST 2012: Steve has recently upgraded his sound equipment with a BOSE L1 compact and a custom built speaker system.

Please note that at this time, the piano shell cannot be hired out on its own, and Steve is not currently looking to make any further models.
