About Paul

Paul playing for a wedding

Chicago pianist Paul Goldman has earned a reputation as one of Chicagoland's most respected and versatile corporate entertainer and Chicago wedding musicians. Highly regarded for his professionalism and sheer technical virtuosity, he sets a standard of excellence for musicianship, integrity, and entertainment. Paul has shared the stage with a diverse array of internationally-renowned artists across multiple genres, and has had the pleasure of working with some of Chicago's most in-demand wedding bands, corporate bands, and "Dueling Pianos" providers.

Paul connects with his audience, sharing a part of himself with each listener. Whether performing instrumental piano at an elegant cocktail hour, or leading sing-a-longs at a rowdy piano bar, Paul is able to masterfully balance the spirit of the music with the requirements of your event. Most of all, he exhudes passion for ALL music equally - nowhere else will you find a musician capable of AUTHENTICALLY channeling Beethoven one minute and Blink-182 the next! Paul plays each composition in his songlist with 100% attention to the character of the piece.

Paul is the regular Thursday and Saturday entertainer at the Big Shot Piano Lounge, where he can be found taking requests and rocking out into the later hours. Make sure to check out the calendar to find out when you can catch him perform live next!

When not providing world-class piano entertainment, Paul likes to develop software, learn new things, play chess, watch standup comedy, and spend time with his lovely wife and kids.
