Another amazing week!
Man, I love December–People really “party” ! : )
Christmas Eve was a treat. I had two amazing Parties. The first one was for a family in Fontana who had a special request for me to play a favorite song that Grandpa used to play on a family piano for “Dad”!
This was a very amazing answer to “what do you get for the man who has everything”…and it turned out AMAZING!
An intimate family gathering!
I played “Laura’s Theme” which went over very well and then another spontaneous special request which I found on my awesome ipad on the spot! And I think we all became best friends for life.
Then I just took request from the family which ran from Debussy and Beethoven to a Rocking Boogie Woogie version of Jingle Bells!
One thing that made it amazing for me was that the piano, a Baldwin was very similar to the piano that I spent many hours playing when I was in my school years!!
And the other thing I loved was that the whole family was just so fun. One grand daughter came up to the piano and her and Grandpa did an impromptu version of “Baby it’s Cold Outside”!
And everyone joined in on “Rudolph” and “Silent Night” and “White Christmas” etc… such a blast! From my experience there is nothing as beautiful as good friends and family singing together!
It was a one hour beautiful experience and such a beautiful way to start Christmas Eve magic.
From there I went down to Laguna Beach to play at one of the fanciest and wonderful larger family and friends gatherings ever!.
Right on the Ocean! Amazing dream home…Steinway Grand piano. Over the top Christmas Eve party for all the amazing family with kids of all ages running around with the adults too.
I mean…Party! This one featured amazing food catered by An Catering! ( OMG!! ) and Polynesian dancers, Christmas Carolers, Piano and Vocals and topped off with an amazing Magician!
And non stop fun!
It was a particular treat to work with Joe Blatchford with An Catering who put it all together. Wow! He made it look easy!
I made some friends at both Parties I think I’ll have forever!
I can’t wait for the next one!
Let me know if I can help you make your next party, event, wedding, Birthday…more amazing!
I love my “job”! : )
