Piano By RiaanLocation: Based in Pretoria
Riaan Eloff is a versatile and passionate pianist, providing the perfect mood music for events. Riaan performs a selection of well-known and -loved melodies, from light-classical and Jazz to well-loved pop songs and melodies from the musicals.
His varied repertoire includes several favourites such as "Love is all Around Me" - 4 weddings & a funeral, "Tears in heaven" - Eric Clapton, "Must've been love" - Roxette, "The prayer" - Celine Dion, "If Tomorrow Never Comes", and similar "piano-able" pop-tunes. He also performs several Jazz standards, such as "Autumn leaves", "Fly me to the moon", "Summertime", "Girl from Ipanema", "Misty", "Crazy" etc., as well as some his own compositions.
For a visual feast, Riaan also offers a small lounge band (piano, upright bass, brush-kit drums and guitarist/violinist/vocalist), enhancing Riaan's much-loved genre..
Riaan, who comes from a musically gifted family (his mother plays several instruments, his father guitar and trumpet and both his sisters play instruments and sing), started playing piano at the age of eight and received Grade 8 qualifications in theory and performance from UNISA.
He has been performing publically since the age of 14, and has been doing so ever since at churches, restaurants, weddings, corporate events and the like. As session musician, he has recorded on close to 40 albums for various arists, and has been involved in numerous other music productions.
Despite also being recognised as a producer and engineer (he owns his own studio), and having excelled in many areas of life and music, the piano is and will always remain Riaan's first love, which is why he loves his job!
