John Chapman’s ease at the keyboard and with audiences, stems from a long and varied career as a professional pianist & band leader—starting with his first jazz band in the 5th grade! For over 25 years, he has played throughout the United States, and toured in Europe and South America.

He now concentrates on playing his own music both as a soloist and with his group at concerts, festivals and nightclubs throughout the north and south-eastern U.S.

John also performs concerts in assisted living facilities, a practice he began when his mom entered such a facility in 2003.


“When John gets on that keyboard,
a real spirit and soul comes through that’s very powerful—
an exceptional musician and writer.”
