Elixir is very excited to bring to you our very own Cairns local esteemed pianist, Kingsley - The Piano Man..... This will be a very special evening indeed pls book your seats!
"After a 30 year career as a professional musician "hired gun" touring and recording for numerous acts I am returning to music as a solo pianist and vocalist. Based in the beautiful Far North of Australia in tropical Cairns my audiences are entertained with classic piano man songs with a repertoire of over 400 songs in many and varied settings.
I was introduced to music by my grandfather when, at the tender ago of two, I received my first musical instrument for Christmas. My grandfather, using the stage name Harry Hathaway, performed in a vaudeville act with his twin brother which toured Australia and was a regular part of the show at the Tivoli Theatre in Sydney. He later joined the Royal Navy Band.
Coming from a long line of Irish story tellers and entertainers, I was destined to continue the family tradition. At the age of 16 I was asked to join my High School music teachers busy wedding reception band, The Rondels. Thus my professional career as a musician began.
I have toured Australia, Asia and the USA multiple times, performed over 3000 gigs, received numerous music awards and played on dozens of albums. I had achieved all I had dreamed of doing and hung up my entertainers hat in 2012. Then in early 2017 I was hit by a car and seriously injured resulting in 7 months unable to work. One day I dragged myself out of bed and sat at my piano. I started playing songs and singing and before long I had a large repertoire of songs.
Today, weddings, corporate functions and public piano bar gigs serve as a medium for me to share my experience and skills with audiences. From rowdy singalong environments to sophisticated quieter milieu, the solo piano/singing formate fits many settings. Someone once said, “The nobelist art is that of making others happy”. This is my inspiration."
