At the heart of the Janis Nowlan Band is Janis Nowlan herself, a talented pianist, vocalist, composer, and lifelong entertainer in the music and wedding industries. Janis played her first professional engagement at 19 building a steady following as a solo performing artist. Having established her name over a dozen years as a Cabaret act headline attraction at resort restaurants and clubs in Cape Cod and throughout the Greater Boston area, and then performing in New York, bypassing an invitation to experience Broadway, Janis moved to Philadelphia and formed the Janis Nowlan Orchestra, now known as the Janis Nowlan Band. From her experience in live performance, Janis finds instant rapport with her audience adding an effervescent fire of enthusiasm. After seeing Janis perform his songs live, the late Grammy and Academy Award winning Singer/Composer/Entertainer Peter Allen commented that, “Janis complements my music better than anyone!”
Coupled with her training in classical piano, Janis brings an unusual depth and imagination to the music she performs. She has toured England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales where she sang at the International Song Festival. Other tours have taken her to Singapore and Bangkok. Janis has performed as a solo classical pianist in world renowned Steinway Hall in New York City. She has given several performances on WGBH Public Radio in Boston, and has recorded three albums, two of which were recorded in Nashville, produced and accompanied by the late Grammy Award winning Country artist and author Danny Davis (Nashville Brass). Her third album was recorded during a live performance on Cape Cod. Whether playing the classics, leading her Janis Nowlan Band, or working with clients, Janis strives for perfection in every event she performs.
