About Sanford

Sanford Guerrero is a pianist and keyboardist based in Cherry Hill, New Jersey. His playing style is based on the influences from timeless performers like Billy Joel, David Foster, Peter Cetera, Chicago (band), Brian McKnight, Earth Wind & Fire, Jim Brickman, Buddy Rich (Jazz), and The Beatles.

Sanford started playing piano when he was 9. His first public gigs were providing piano accompaniment and singing at middle and high school choirs in Pennsauken, New Jersey.  Later, he expanded to playing some comps and licks in high school jazz band.  Since then, he went on to perform with countless professional singers and instrumentalists at various special events and church services.  Later starting in 2009, he self-taught and started performing some of his repertoire on the church organ.

Sanford founded Piano by Sanford (formerly "Sanford Guerrero Music" and "Sanman Music Philly") back in October 2017 and has played at many elegant weddings, cocktail hours and other entertainment gigs at special event venues throughout Philadelphia, surrounding suburbs, and New Jersey.

Outside of this music venture, he is a freelance special event and substitute pianist and church organist at various churches within the Archdiocese of Philadelphia.  His recent performing stints include: St. Peter the Apostle, St. Augustine, St. John the Evangelist, Annunciation BVM (South Philadelphia), Our Lady of Calvary, St. James (Elkins Park, PA), and St. Hilary of Potiers (Rydal, PA).

Also, he is presently a rotating accompanist with the Filipino Choir at St. Peter the Apostle Church in Philadelphia.  Since joining this all-volunteer, parish’s Filipino community music program in June 2001, he has been their longest-serving in-house pianist and organist in history.
