Way back in 2009, we worked with restauranteur, Sam Harrison, booking live music at his stylish Chiswick restaurant, Sam’s Brasserie. Not long after, we officially launched our business! Sam recently launched his new venture, Sam’s Riverside, in Hammersmith. Sam’s Riverside overlooks the Thames and is situated adjacent to the famous Riverside Studios. We went to see it in December, and it is absolutely stunning! We were delighted to work with Sam again, providing a DJ for their New Year’s Eve celebrations. We can’t wait to return to Sam’s Riverside to sample the food. Sam’s Brasserie was always a firm favourite of ours, so we’re thrilled that he’s back!

We recently worked with Universal Music providing our black piano shell for a music video shoot. Our piano shells are becoming increasingly popular for video shoots and events. Baby grand piano shells are light-weight and super easy to set up. If you haven’t got a piano at your venue, or you require one for a photo or video shoot, they’re a fantastic option. Here’s our white shell in situ, for a recent video shoot for singer/songwriter, John Galea.
