January 1st Fri  New Year's Day Residents' Dinner     Wentworth Hotel

  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, 30's, 40's'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 is 'free and easy' with 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 100 widely varied 'gigs' per year.  www.nickraison.co.uk
