Welcome to the Portland Crooner Website

swing-musician-portlandMatthew Casey is one of the NW’s premier Swing Era crooner/pianists, playing the biggest hits of the 1940’s – 60’s ~ great music by artists like Frank Sinatra, Nat King Cole, Bing Crosby, Duke Ellington, Tony Bennett, Mel Torme, Glenn Miller, Andy Williams, and many more.

Whether solo or with his Swing Duo/Trio, Matthew always brings top-notch musicianship with unsurpassed professionalism.

As both a trained vocalist and professional jazz pianist, Matthew brings a classic style of jazz crooning to all his performances.  A Portland native, his diverse musical abilites have taken him across America and include countless live settings, albums, and extensive radio and television work.

Closer to home, Matthew has performed in some of Portland’s finest venues such as Pittock Mansion, Portland Golf Club, the Benson Hotel, The Marriott, Persimmons Country Club, Evergreen Aviation Museum, Mittleman Jewish Community Center, serving on the piano staff at Lloyd Center Nordstrom, and has been a featured entertainer at Portland International Airport (PDX). His rich musical expression and warm, entertaining style are much loved by all his listeners, and are a perfect fit for parties, concerts, and wherever top-notch Swing Era crooning and jazz piano are in demand.

Music is such a great way of brightening someone’s day, and of making a special occasion “unforgettable.”  I know you’ll find my style of entertaining – whether solo or with my Swing Duo or Trio – to be the perfect addition to your next event… I look forward to serving you.

Warmly,

Matthew
