I’m starting on Monday…mostly because it’s where my week started! First off two of the regulars at Parkway came in with a bunch of family and friends and brought me – yes me, a CD of ….ta da! Real Portuguese music!! Beautiful.
These wonderful people have been coming in for months and it’s always a great exchange talking to them about music and songs etc…
The husband is from Portugual and he has often asked me to play any “Portuguese” music. I have been at a loss…What is it? It’s not Brazilian even though Brazil speaks Portuguese..Okay, Now that I have had a chance to listen a bit, I know! And it’s of course unique and beautiful and the best thing is that now I can learn some real Portuguese music!! Cool!
And then- who else comes in? This awesome party of very bright people who want to hear- amongst others-”It’s a Wonderful Life!” ( “What a Wonderful World”)
The exchange with these people is just fun and the lady even asks me to come out to the table and see what else they would like to hear.
One of the party it turns out is a writer who writes for magazines in England and almost played golf recently with…… Rick Wakeman!! What? Wild! I shook his hand because he promises me he is going to play golf with Rick Wakeman in the near future and, he will shake his hand for me!!!! So now, I shook hands “once removed” with Rick Wakeman! Now that’s awesome!
Plus they did love my rather over the top version of Piano Man!! Let’s just say it brought the whole table into the piano area from the Dining room for the big finale!! : ) Amazing night!
