Ben Folds meets Sting. Some Elton and Billy thrown in, along with the Eagles and The Beatles, and yes, Cole Porter still works...hey, at least it works for me!

Biography

Lawrence has been entertaining since he can remember. Born into a musical family in Philadelphia, he naturally followed his gift. “I was genetically predisposed to be a musician” After earning a degree in Music performance from the University of the Arts, he hit the road, with some lengthy stops in Los Angeles (Dante’s), Las Vegas (New York, New York), Reno (Fitzgerald’s Hotel), Lake Tahoe (Harvey’s Casino), Hilton Head Island (Beachfront Hyatt Hotel), and of course, many more….and then off to Europe where he worked a full season, plus the summer with Opera Barga, in Florence Italy as an accompanist. From there he returned to Los Angeles, where he spent several years as a studio musician, and dueling piano performer, but then hit the road again, only this time, the road was an ocean. He has spent the last several years, cruising the world, playing piano bars on a number of Holland America ships, as well as being a sought after solo pianist in New York, performing often on Embassy Row, as he has become a favorite at embassy functions, where his diverse repertoire and sense of humor have proven great assets. He has recently come off successful extended engagements in both Ireland and Denmark, receiving high praise from both audience and press alike.

Set List

Set List:
The following is a list of songs I do in my piano bar gigs. The actual set lists are driven by audience participation, requests and at times, some good humored ball breaking. I will do any song, anywhere, anytime. The following list is performed without sheet music. I wouldn't want to go to a play and watch the actors read off a script...so why would anyone want watch me read music? So while I can read the classics, I perform with my wits.
