Biography

Biography:

Ondrej Pivec, hammond organist & pianist

Ondrej was born in 1984 in Brno (south Moravia, Czech Republic, Europe). Firstly he studied classical piano in Brno, but as he grew older, he took part in Summer Jazz Workshops organized by the Czech Jazz Society. It was there that he was introduced to jazz music and in that context, many great European musicians were his mentors.

The first bigger engagement came in 2002. By that time Ondrej had joined the jazz
trio of the prominent Czech jazz guitarist Roman Pokorný. He had switched

from piano to the hammond organ and learned to play the bass lines with the left hand. Through working with this trio he slowly gained the experience of being a
professional sideman.

In 2003, after graduation from high school he joined Roman’s blues project - Blues Box Heroes and gradually became a professional player. Ondrej then started performing with Yvonne Sanchez, a singer of Polish-Cuban descent (Brazilian Groove). In 2004 he played over 130 gigs with these three bands, performing not only in Czech Republic but also internationally. Engagements included Semper Oper, Bluenote - Dresden, a Romanian tour, a tour in Turkey with a band supporting Billy Cobham’s Culture Mix, FIAP Jean Monnet Paris, Jazz Club St. Germain Paris, Kunstfabrik Schlott, Berlin and many more. Between 2005-2006, Ondrej also cooperated with the renowned German guitar player, Christian Rover.
