ON STAGE 
AT 
THE CONWAY HALL 
LONDON

with Princess Margaret ... in full swing ...
with Famous Grouse at hand
and Nick Raison at the piano
A private dinner party in about 1980

  http// WWW.NICKRAISON.CO.UK   NICK RAISON is a highly experienced solo performer and accompanist with a repertoire mainly from “The Great American Songbook” era from the 1920's ... and slowing down just BEFORE Rock 'n Roll/Skiffle etc!. He has a huge variety of tunes which can be played (... repetitions by request only!) for up to 5 hours at a time. His style has a hint of "Charlie Kunz", "Hutch" [without the voice!] and "Carroll Gibbons". For Cocktail Piano Music and Ambient Music he plays  using a song-list on the piano of about 750+ song titles. The total repertoire extends well beyond this.  If specific songs are requested for special occasions (eg bride's entrance, birthdays, wakes etc) these can often be included … with enough warning .  He plays at about 80 widely varied 'gigs' per year.  www.nickraison.co.uk

 A Butley Priory Wedding    MUSIC   a blog from 2017

 "We hired Nick Raison, a local pianist who plays music from the Ragtime era which suited our look and feel of the venue on the day very well. He played me in to a more modern tune: Christina Perri – A Thousand Years.

During the signing of the register Nick played Elton John – Your Song and then played us all out to Louis Armstrong – What a Wonderful World. He continued to play through the early afternoon until we sat down to eat. This piano music added so much to the atmosphere ...."
