it has to be experienced live, they’re not simple in terms of structure nor in terms of emotional content."

THE PAUL TOSHNER

show 

singing and piano

click here to make a booking

My show has a blend of variety in dynamic and material:

Billy Joel, Neil Diamond, Elton John, Bob Dylan, Frank Sinatra, Pavarotti, my own songs (which sometimes go down the best of all), I sing and play piano in a totally acoustic way, and with microphones in the piano going to a looper pedal.

The real piano gigs are really the best. I also sing Sinatra and Opera songs against a track while also playing piano,

and sometimes get up from the piano. There is a bit of chat and I develop aspects all the time.

The singers and songwriters from the 70's

Elton John

Billy Joel

Neil Diamond

Bob Dylan

The Beatles

Frank Sinatra

Pavarotti

😎 IT CAN BE DONE 😷

Recently I do shows where I perform with proper

social distancing in place. A little bit of the clips are enclosed

above so you can see how it really works for social distancing.

If you know anyone remotely connected to a care home or assisted living facility please forward this page to them.

Many thanks, and have a lovely day.

I have dedicated the greater part of my life to my equipment, processes and a repertoire that I understand well, and make people happy with. I realise more and more that people get something from it.

 

Looking forwards to meeting you and providing entertainment.

Paul

LIFE IS GRAND

A bit about me 😁

New York, Washington, Baltimore

BIO

I was born in the Victoria Infirmary Glasgow, Scotland.

I have been a resort concert act in Swiss ski resorts, community halls, and hotels in Londons west end. I perform lyric based song with a bit of chat. I took classical voice lessons for three years with Lidea De Rosa, and piano with Jim McDowall in Glasgow

 

I dream music, probably because my subconscious is exposed a lot, I then take the melodies and shape song structures and evolve them. I love the process.

 

My influences include: Bob Dylan, Miles Davis, Billy Joel, Mahler, Frank Sinatra, Pavarotti, Elton John, and of course The Beatles.

“It’s Beatles, it’s u2, its Bob Dylan, Lenny Kravitz and Billy Joel, its jazz – you write this style and that style– you have obviously been influenced by all the songs you have been playing through the years. The world would welcome something like this now with open arms, the songs are timeless, it’s an album like Sgt Pepper”.

"Paul's songs are alive, you have to live with them.

Paul also sets the standard, when it comes to camaraderie, and healthy artistic sharing."
