Ondre J Pivec
Ondre J Pivec is, a Grammy winning celebrated keyboardist, composer, recording artist and bandleader from the Czech Republic. Though based in Brooklyn, Ondre J 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, Ondre J 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 J 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.
