With a mix of jazz, classical, contemporary, and an unwavering passionate energy from start to finish, Adam Narimatsu is a premiere pianist in NYC. His musical travels have taken him from private fundraisers for Kevin Spacey’s charity foundation to friends’ weddings down the street.
Born and raised just outside of Annapolis, MD, Adam has been gigging professionally since 2011. While almost entirely self-taught on the piano, he studied guitar and some keyboard under Peabody graduate Bryan Pallett, and had a year of instruction under jazz pianist Stef Scaggiarri. His earliest influences included any sort of boogie woogie, George Winston, James Booker, and Liberace, but, as he immersed himself more into jazz, the influences grew to include players like Oscar Peterson, Erroll Garner, Bill Evans, and Cory Henry.
Since then, he has played dozens of event fundraisers, private cocktail hours, weddings, rehearsal dinners, anniversaries, birthdays, and corporate parties. In 2013, he worked on piano arrangements for the Kennedy Center’s production of “Violet,” and served as leader, arranger, and director of the 13 piece Rock and Roll Revival band from 2013-2015. Adam brings a wide variety of styles, experience, and enthusiasm to every gig he plays, from the first note to the last.
