A love letter to the piano and those who play it

He’ll happily play Elton John, Carole King or Peter Allen but please don’t make him play THAT Billy Joel song. After his acclaimed and hilarious debut cabaret ‘I Sing Songs’ join Steven Kramer on a journey through all the great piano hits across the ages. With his cheeky, irreverent humour he celebrates his up and down relationship with the piano and some of the instrument’s superstars. Bringing fresh arrangements of the songs you know and love this is a sure crowd-pleaser. No stranger to piano bars and sing-along nights he’ll make you feel right at home. Just don’t leave your drink on the piano without a coaster!
