Keys On Fire – A Visual Piano Experience
Reuel’s latest show Keys On Fire features virtuosic piano performances accompanied by a rock band, string duo, and electrifying LED visuals. Keys On Fire explores new realms of Rock, Pop, and Crossover with a style influenced heavily by Reuel’s upbringing as a classical pianist and 15 years composing film-scores and producing electronic dance music. The genre-merging show arrangements include: Aerosmith, Queen, Tchaikovsky, Elton John, Bon Jovi, and Beethoven to name a few, along with original works from Reuel’s Piano/EDM album Transformation.
“My live shows always vary in style, size and structure,” Reuel explains. “I perform concerts of solo classical material, as well as solo pop piano with live string players and custom synched backing tracks. I have a five-piece pop band and a classically trained trio, with a cellist and violinist. I customize each show to what is needed, or affordable, for the venue or client. I’m continually adding more original music to my shows, along with creative arrangements of popular music and I am always looking for ways to present my music in the biggest, most straightforward fashion.” Reuel is also available as a dynamic trio with cello and violin.
