I turned into Tampa Bay Pianist/Vocalist last November.
Actually, I arrived from Los Angeles after living there for 37 years and playing piano for years there. Sadly, I had almost nothing set up gig wise. But, now after a wild 7 months. I’m up and running.
In fact, last week I played 12 gigs. And, they were in Sarasota, St Petersburg, Temple Terrace , Clearwater and Spring Hill.
My main gig is a 5 night a week residency at Beau and Mo’s in St Pete. It’s a wonderful Italian Steak House. Chicago style. Wildly, after a crazy chain of events from playing once or twice in December I’ve ended up there a wonderful 5 nights 6-10pm Tuesdays through Saturday. So unless I have a private gig, I’m very happy there making beautiful music 5 nights a week.
I have also been paying around for seniors’ communities, of which there are many. I’ve become a regular at The Fountians at Boca Ciega Bay where I’m playing Mondays from 5-6 pm. Super fun, nice piano. A Steinway Grand.
I’m also doing a fair amount of music production for a variety of fun clients. Songwriters, Media companies, Singers, Other musicians, lots of different projects.
I’m also finding a few students that are a blast to work with. Some are adults that have alwasy loved piano and just want directions on how to play different styles but some are young students who really want to play piano! So fun. I alwasy love working with other musicians.
Being a musician is a wild ride. The one thing very missing for artists in general is a handbook on how to be an artist and live.
Maybe I’ll write my version of this some day. In the meantime I’m happy to live in this beautiful area and to have the privlidege of making art-playing piano – singing- writing songs and production music for a living.
Hope you’re having a great day.
