Scott Gurney is one of the most talented and versatile keyboardists / vocalists in the Philadelphia area. He began studying music at the age of 10, studying classical piano privately with Ruth Heiss and Ruth Campbell. He has studied pop and jazz piano with Russ Faith, Adolph Sandole, Jimmy Amadie, and Charlie Banacos. He was a classical and jazz piano major at both Bucks County Community College and Philadelphia College of Performing Arts. Scott is comfortable performing many styles of music. As a pianist/vocalist, Scott runs the gamut of musical styles from Bill Evans and Tony Bennett to Billy Joel and Elton John. Scott began performing professionally in his early teens and has toured with such recording artists The Drifters and The Platters. He has also worked as musical director at both the Showboat and Harrah’s in Atlantic City. He has done extensive work as a solo pianist in some of the finest hotels in and around the Philadelphia area.
An old-school, two-fisted piano player with a strong tenor voice for all styles of popular music, CJ Steinway is the life-of-the-party. He ranges from swingin’ standards like Harry Connick, Jr. to rock and soul Piano Man-style like Elton, Billy, Ray, Jerry Lee, Dr. John and Fats Domino. With more than 20 years of playing the northeast coast, CJ plays songs you know by heart in a style that is accessible and danceable, and maybe just different enough from the recordings we all love to be interesting and fun.
