"My husband and I wanted to hire a pianist for our holiday party where ninety guests were invited. We were referred to Live Music Consulting (LMC) by our dentist (personal friend) who knows the owner, Dan Wions. I immediately contacted Dan via e-mail and cell phone but, unfortunately, he was on tour out of the country. Within a day the correspondence began.

He was able to find out what our needs were (both musical and budgetary) and he contacted a very qualified woman through the LMC network and connected us. Dan was such a pleasure to work with, returning e-mails promptly and always answering any questions promptly and politely. Making me feel comfortable that I would definitely have a qualified pianist for our party was such a relief and one less worry for such a large gathering. We highly recommend using LMC and will definitely do business as well as refer in the future.

P.S. Even after our pianist left our guests actually came up to us asking where the live music had gone!"

Scott's Bio >>

Scott McAllister

Consultant

Scott’s introduction to music started with his father who was an amateur organist. At the age of 7 he became interested in the Hammond Organ himself and began to learn the fundamentals of music through the instrument, under his father’s tutelage. At 12, Scott took an interest in the piano and began formal classical lessons. A fan of Chopin, Scott gave his music great attention in particular, performing many of his piano works on annual recitals.

Since then, Scott has performed all over the tri state area, and several brief performances in Chicago. He has played in such well known places as the Waldorf Astoria, the Kitano Hotel and the Water Club in NYC as well as the Somerset Palace in NJ and Penn Ryn Mansion in Pennsylvania. In 2003 he was a regular soloist featured at the Cornerstone Jazz club and restaurant in Metuchen, NJ, and in 2005 entertained crowds at Jamie’s Restaurant in Clifton, NJ. He continues to play all over the northeast for varied functions.

Scott’s repertoire includes a little bit of everything, ranging from classical, ragtime, standards, Broadway, and seventies’ music to hits of today. His style is of a “pop” nature with elements of jazz and classical interspersed throughout his playing. Always open to a request and happy to talk to any patron, Scott offers a nice mix of friendliness, warmth, and good music. In 2005 Scott was hired as a Nordstrom pianist, where he continues to entertain today.
