Hi! I’m Michael Knapp, a professional pianist for hire – playing a range of pop, jazz, blues, classic rock, or easy listening hits around Lake of the Ozarks as well as throughout Missouri and the Midwest.
I am an accomplished and experienced musician who plays a variety of events and venues including fairs, clubs, corporate and private parties, stage shows, holiday parties, restaurants, and more. And I provide my own stage piano and professional PA system if you don’t have a piano at your venue. So if you are looking for classy entertainment presented tastefully and professionally, then please consider hiring me for your venue or event.
Thanks for visiting my website!
Silhouette of a Soul is my newly released solo piano arrangement, the first to go on a new solo piano album I’m working on which will release in 2019.
Dusk to Dawn is my most recent fully arranged piece, on which I played all the instruments and engineered the recording. (I love doing this!)
Have questions? Need a quote? Complete the form below and I will get back to you.
This is a demo of my own arrangement of one of my favorite classic rock songs, smooth jazz style.
This is a small sample of my own original improv style relaxing dinner or lounge music (for restaurants who don’t purchase BMI, ASCAP and SESAC licensure).
Another sample of an improv performance where I play spontaneously whatever comes to mind. I use a track for this one, which I call, “Still.”
