Ambient Piano


Combining years of experience from different bands and different styles, Francis McGrath creates a unique mood for formal or casual events.  He seamlessly switches from jazz to classical to pop to new age with just the right amount of improvisation.  Guests passively enjoy the background music until their ears are tickled by a familiar melody or pleasant memory.

Quotes from clients:

Everyone loved you!  Thanks for hooking me up at the last minute and saving my soul.

Quotes from guests:

Thank you so much for your beautiful rendition of The Foo Fighters’ “Everlong”.

It sounded like Keith Jarrett playing The Who.

This guy played “The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway” then transitioned to “On Broadway” by George Benson!  Awesome! Chops people, that’s what that is.

Facebook posts after a recent performance at Mother’s Cafe and Garden:

Miles Davis, Cyndi Lauper, the Who… The Dave Brubeck medley was rivaled only by the vegetable medley.

It was clearly rivaled by the end credit score to “Return of the Jedi”.
