Queen Keyboard Player – Looking for someone who plays Queen’s music on keys?

Are you looking for someone in Ireland who plays Queen piano/keyboard parts, either for a one-off gig or perhaps as Queen Keyboardist in a We Will Rock You schools musical production? Are you looking for a keyboard player for a Queen Tribute Band? If so, check my details below! I’m the frelance Spike Edney (who plays keybaords for Queen)

I play all of Queen’s back catalogue and most of it as per the record, i.e. I do my best to emulate Freddie’s piano/keyboard playing style. I also play all the songs in their original recorded key, as I believe that Freddie chose the best keys for the songs – plus, they don’t sound the same in a different key. There are a few songs such as Who Want’s to Live Forever and Friends will be Friends which Queen dropped by 2 semitones (e.g. as Queen themselves did at Wembley ’86) but those are the exceptions.

I am based in Waterford, Ireland so I wouldn’t be able to cater for any short-notice gigs etc outside the area (unless of course it is Brian or Roger reading this, or you want me to go on the road with a Queen Tribute Band, in which case, I will drop everything !) … however, I can certainly consider any opportunity once enough prior notice was given.

I’m currently working with a band calledCustom 160 and there is a bit of Queen in their setlist … so if you see us advertised please do drop by. I am Keyboardist and Musical Director with a US Based Queen Tribute Band called ‘Celebrating Queen‘ and I will have more news on this later in the year.

Below you will find a list of all the Queen songs I play on keyboard – These are performed as much as possible, as per the original recording or as close as is possible live.
