JON DUNMORE KEYBOARDS
Studio--Live--Tours

Rock organ, piano, synth.
Classically trained. Driven by rock.
Influences: Jon Lord, Billy Joel, Ken Hensley, Beethoven, Freddie Mercury.

Available for any musical project: commercials, studio, live, tours, songwriting, arranging, producing, tabulation, composer, Musical Director, Band Leader.

As well as band situations, I also work with solo vocalists, songwriters, studios, small businesses, solo artists who need one or two songs tracked, etc.; any situation that needs keyboards, piano or organ.

STYLES
My playing styles cover the musical spectrum, from classical piano, to 70's rock organ, to 80's pop synth, to r&b, funk, rap, country, progressive rock, mainstream, alternative, etc. I do not do jazz.


STUDIO
I am available for any type of studio work, in any type of studio: have worked in all the big Los Angeles haunts (Paramount, Aire LA, Westlake, Clearlake, Capitol, etc.), down to well-outfitted private studios, or directly into a computer in someone's living room.

LIVE
Onstage, I can slot into whatever your band requires from a keyboard player: from a backing player, holding up many different sounds and textures, to a frontman, holding court with scorching lead solos.

TOURS
I am available for extensive travel, anywhere in the world; all passports and paperwork are in order; no "day job" to hold me down (at the risk of sounding like Greg Brady: Music is my day job!).

LIVE
If you're a Band or a solo Musician, you want a hired musician to learn all your gig material BEFORE a rehearsal, and you want that musician to walk onstage and perform your material as if they've been doing it all their lives with you. I know you do, because when *I* hire musicians, that's what I expect from them.

You should expect nothing less from me.


I am a lightning-fast learner; can learn full sets the night before a gig; and I only need minimum rehearsals, saving you time and money.

An intense performer at rock gigs, my keyboards must survive body damage, multiple key replacements and the occasional ritual burning...

SOLO PIANIST
Consider a pianist or organist during your wedding or reception, or consider a pianist and female vocalist in the background of your engagement party or special event.

As you can see from these pages, I am also a lead vocalist, and can perform as a vocalist/keyboardist, but I generally keep the disciplines separated--unless the money is good enough to do 'em together!

TOURS
I am based in Southern California (Van Nuys, Los Angeles), and available to travel anywhere in the world.

If you need a reliable road animal, who will not enter into political intrigue with other band members or crew (no backstabbings, gossip or rumors), call on The Dunmore. My experience as a Band Manager means I know the importance of only communicating with the band leader or management.
