CJW Echo with Ondřejem Pivcem

Ondrej Pivec is a Grammy winning celebrated keyboardist, composer, recording artist and bandleader from the Czech Republic. Though based in Brooklyn, Ondrej goes where the music is. He has been touring Europe as a member of the live band for Grammy-winning jazz singer Gregory Porter, having also recorded with Porter in New York on the latter’s 2016 grammy winner, “Take Me To The Alley.”

With Porter, Ondrej played venues including London’s storied Royal Albert Hall and the BBC’s celebrated live music show, “Later … With Jools Holland.” Ondre’s resumé already boasted dates at Glastonbury and North Sea Jazz, an opening slot with Andra Day for r&b star Toni Braxton, performance with the legendary hip-hop group Wu-Tang Clan and a tour in front of total of 70,000 people as keyboardist for French pop singer Ayo.

At home, Ondrej divides his musical time between his church and other projects. He’s also the keyboardist and music director for a swinging, soulful hybrid r&b-jazz-pop band, the Kennedy Administration, that plays a regular weekly gig at Groove in Greenwich Village.
