Grant has been a professional pianist his entire life. With over 40 years of playing full-time, the list of gigs is ridiculous, but included in the link below if you’re interested.
This is a brief over-view of the my experience:
1980 – 1984 (Vancouver Island and B.C.) Pubs, Restaurants, Clubs and every other kind of gig one can think of. During this period I also had the honor to study with and be mentored by some of the finest musicians in the business: Louise Rose, Fraser McPhearson, Elmer Gill, Ralph Sutton, Dave McKenna and Dick Wellstood.
1984 – 1989 (Caribbean, Mexico and Alaska) Explorations Cruise Lines. Pianist, Musical Director and Entertainer
1989 – Current (Whitehorse, Yukon) Musical Director of Frantic Follies Vaudeville Revue
