Last night I was playing a request of “Ribbon in The Sky” (and killing it) for one of the lovely patrons at Larsen’s Steakhouse in Valencia and she busted out her phone and took a photo or a vid. (nice)! : )
Anyway I followed it up with “You Are the Sunshine of My Life” just because…Stevie..you know!
And she and I loved/love that one too! : )
But then…on my break she told me she was super good buds with Stevie and had sent him the vids and she knew that he would love them. : ))
This is what I love about being a Pianist?vocalist in Los Angeles. Legends are locals!
No big deal! : )
So I will just mention in passing my other blog post where I played for Bonnie Raitt and didn’t even realize it was her…until she was leaving after she had made her table tip me very well indeed!
Or the time I played for Drew Barrymore and Will who sat right next to the piano for several hours as we became “bros” in The Varnish downtown Los Angeles.
I might even mention private events I’ve had the honor to play for one for one of the coolest people I ever met John Travolta!
Or how about accompanying Tom Jones at a party one night!
Rosanne Barr…Cameron Diaz…I love Los Angeles! : )
It is the City of Angels!
It’s where I play the piano and sing for a living and make it even more beautiful for all the cool people! : )
