PIANO BAR CRUISIN'

"Dear Lorraine: Just wanted to say you were so much fun to be around and your music was awesome! You really know how to put on a show and I had the best time ever hanging out in the piano bar and listening to you and playing in the air band.

Your Number 1 fan, Rockin' Kyle " - Email from Kyle (Carnival Ecstasy Guest, 2011)

For the past seven years I have had the privilege to develop as a piano bar performer on cruise ships. My first ships to perform on were the Carnival Destiny and Holland America's Ryndam. I continued to perform on Carnival ships, developing my pop repertoire, singing voice and entertainment skills. I have come to realize that performing in the piano bar is a true art, one that combines the skills of playing piano, singing and entertaining all at once. I love connecting with people and making them smile.  I love the participation part of the piano bar where the guests sing along and create a party with me (yes I do have props!). I provide a request list and sing along book to help with the piano bar fun.  My repertoire for upbeat sing along piano bar includes the pop, rock, blues, boogie, ragtime and country genres. For my current performance schedule, please see my "Public Performances" page. If you happen to be cruising with me, please drop by the piano bar to say hello! 

I have also had the privilege of performing in the Disney Wonder's Cadillac Lounge in 2010. A much quieter affair, but I enjoyed playing a different segment of my repertoire and creating a quiet, classy background for their beautiful lounge. My repertoire for piano lounge includes the Classic Jazz, Show Tunes, Easy Listening and Classical genres.

"Hi Lorraine, Just listening to Billy Joel and it made me think of seeing you on the Carnival Ecstasy cruise.....we managed to have the most fun listening to you in the piano bar. We had so much fun that I even looked into piano bars around our city in Houston!." - Email from Brandy (Carnival Ecstasy Guest 2009)
