Martin Obidans Musician
Martin was resident pianist in the Royal Yacht Britannia for 5 years, including the time when the yacht was used for the honeymoon of Prince Charles and Princess Diana.
He achieved this prestigious role because he was a renowned member of the Band of the Royal Marines. During the Royal honeymoon he became very friendly with Diana. He remembers fondly playing duets with her in the exquisite lounge of the Britannia and has many wonderful tales to tell of those magical years on the Royal Yacht.
He has also played the piano for many heads of state including Margaret Thatcher, Indira Ghandi, Anwar Sadat, Pierre Trudeau as well as all the other commonwealth heads of state. He has performed all over the world and in every state capital in the USA.
Martin will take you down memory lane as you tap your feet and sing along with him. His musical knowledge is vast and his quiz is legend as he plays songs and has you guessing the titles that you remember but can’t quite name!
Indoors or outdoors Martin can perform as background music at functions, weddings, parties & corporate events or, he has his own covered stage in a gazebo with organ, piano and PA. His show is fully self-contained and he can perform on grass or hard standing.
He travels with all his own equipment including a small generator. He prefers it if the show can provide a couple of dozen chairs for people to sit, sing along and listen.
