Hello everyone,
I hope this email finds you well and adjusting to the very challenging times we are in. 
It’s been a while since you’ve heard from me.  All is well here now.
Obviously I’ve had no live performances in the last 2 1/2 months.  Occasionally I post a music video on my YouTube channel or Facebook.  I’ve posted some new YouTube links for you below!
I invite you to subscribe to my YouTube channel, John Bianculli if you get a chance. 
Eventually I will be doing some “live” streaming. 

Looking forward to the day that I will be keeping you posted again about my live performances! 
In the meantime I’d like to let you know a little about my online teaching...
About 75-80% of my current music students have resumed lessons with me online now using Zoom or Skype.
As it turns out it appears to be working very well.  Many are saying they now see things they hadn’t seen before due to the new clear audio, visuals and software I am now using during the lessons. It’s very exciting. The students also have the option of recording the lesson if they choose for review.  With the new software and technology many students are growing in leaps and bounds. I’d rather not bore all of you with all the details now but please contact me if you’re interested. 
Learn more about playing, theory, harmony,  improvisation, songwriting, composition, or accompanying yourself while you or someone else sings.  I offer homemade tracks to play or sing along to depending on your needs.

During this pandemic I’m offering a FREE 30 minute online virtual lesson to any new students.

  Limited slots are available.

"John Bianculli is always spot on.  I don't get a chance to see him often
but when I do it reminds me why I love his playing not only is he a wonderful technician on the piano
but the versatility of his tune selection is what really made the day for me.
 He brought bassist Earl Sauls and drummer, Taro Okamoto and the trio was in sync throughout the brunch. Gershwin's "Loved Walked In" opened.  Among tunes he played were "Too Soon" and "Try a Little Tenderness."
- all were great favorites.  The tunes had just the right amount of balance as they bounced from piano to bass and to drums throughout..."  -Andrea Tyson, former President of New Jersey Jazz Society


“It invokes beauty and playful fancy, stirs the imagination,
and goes straight to the heart. It is unique, lyrical, dynamic,
rich, and uplifting. . .“ - Home News and Tribune
“It is music that will draw you in and make you listen. . .”
- The Star Ledger

“...A beautiful touch.” - Earl May

“Everyone enjoyed your playing very much, John...
I'm still getting compliments about it. Thanks to you
it was one of the best parties we’ve been to in a very long time!
- D. Sansanelli

“When you leave, you’ll leave singing. The next
morning, you’ll wake up humming. And if you’re
not a die-hard fan yet, you will be.” - M. Kushner

The John Bianculli Group
_____________________


It bubbles... It brims... And then...
It explodes with the driving energy of World Beats:
jazz, Afro-cuban, Brazilian, Latin, rhythm & blues,
funk and gospel.
Here is music on the edge of a new century;
The sounds of four continents brewed
and blended together
by a band of masterful musicians led by composer and pianist, John Bianculli,
who was born and raised on the apron of the jazz world, Greenwich Village.
From Birdland, the Blue Note and Smalls in NYC
to New Jersey’s supper clubs and coffeehouses to
African-American churches and outdoor jazz festivals,
John Bianculli’s berth is wide,
creating rhythms and melodies
that reach deep inside the audiences
who embrace his music.
Bianculli is indeed, a master of melody and rhythm.
You can’t help but feel the original passion that drives him
to compose each piece.
The incredible excitement of “Hoofin’ Home”,
“Cueste Lo Que Cueste” and“New Brasilia”
literally brings crowds to their feet,
not to mention, dancing in the aisles!
When you leave, you’ll leave singing.
The next morning, you’ll wake up humming.
And if your not a die-hard fan yet, you will be.

John Bianculli was the DJ at my wedding reception this past summer. He arrived early, brought all his own equipment, and set up everything so that our guests heard music as they entered the room. He played some live music on the keyboard and also did traditional DJ-ing. He played all of the artists and songs we had requested in the preliminary form he asked us to fill out. He was also able to accommodate spur of the moment requests on the day of the wedding. We had a few last minute changes to our itinerary for the day and John handled all of them without a hiccup. Overall, he was professional, cheerful, and a pleasant presence at our wedding reception. I would highly recommend him as a DJ!  -Ariana and Eric
