Carl Banks Music
I've known Carl over 20 years and have had the pleasure of attending many performances that he has been an integral part of. There is nothing this man can't play on keys!!!!
He has been my accompanist for weddings for a long number of years. Whether it's church ceremony He has a wonderful understanding of every genre from church to rock. Cannot recommend him enough. “... civil... blessing or drinks reception Carl puts his own stamp on each. Being accompanied by Carl is not only a joy to sing with but you know your accompaniment will be consistent... unique and top class.
Carl is a true professional, he prepares meticulously and plays outstandingly which is why he is so highly regarded in the Irish music scene.
A real gem of a human being too, always a pleasure to work with. He brings a pro attitude and pro gear. Once you hear him play live once you will understand why he is so in demand. Magical musicianship.
Carl has played with the Dublin Gospel Choir for many years and is a pleasure to work with in every respect. As well as being a very talented musician he is a consummate professional - nothing is ever too much trouble to him and he is dedicated to providing the best service possible to every single client whilst also supporting the other singers and musicians he works with!
" I have been working with Carl since 2014 and couldn't recommend him more! He is able to accommodate each couple with their own song choices and not just out of the book! If anyone can improvise, it's Carl. He has always been highly professional and great to work with . So it you;re looking for a piano player , whether it's classical or contemporary, Carl has you covered."
Carl is a joy to work with . He arrives at every gig an hour early , has PA set up and always has songs fully rehearsed and ready to go for singer and client . He has a beautiful style of playing piano . And literally plays anything perfectly . I love working with Carl as I am guaranteed my client will receive 100% quality . He also occasionally has water waiting for me!!
Always thrilled to have Carl on a gig with us. Such a gifted player. He adds a whole new dynamic to the band with all his fun sounds.
Great friendly personality too which makes things a lot easier for everyone.
Looking forward to playing lot’s more gigs together soon.
Carl accompanied me recently on piano for a friends mothers funeral. Carl absolutely saved the day for me as it was very short notice. he was so professional and relaxed, which really put me at ease. There were a lot of songs involved in the mass and he knew most of the songs already and learned anything he wasn’t familiar with literally overnight. He was very helpful too communicating with the priest before the ceremony ensuring that everything was seamless. I look forward to working with Carl again in the future.
Being in this business for close on 20 years, I've worked with many musicians and I can confidently say that Carl is one of the best.
I've worked with Carl as part of bands and also for Church and pre-dinner ceremonies. Regardless of the setting, I know, every time that Carl will not only knock the music out of the park, but he will also work to accommodate my own vocal style which is hugely important to me as a professional vocalist.
When you provide a professional service to your clients, the musicians used are such an integral part of that service, which is why Carl is always one of my top go-to musicians.
A masterclass in 'How ceremony music should be played and sung' was what I was quoted by the videographer at a recent wedding Carl and I performed at. It’s always a pleasure to work with Carl , a lovely warm friendly person and a very talented musician. The consummate Professional !
You are in good hands!!
