Thanks again for the recommendation. It's the best I've seen in the area so far. Price is not the most important consideration for me (although it is in the top three).

I still need to get down to Sarasota to catch my piano teacher in action.
If you like jazz piano running from smooth to traditional, Mike is one talented guy.
I've just started taking lessons with him, and I'm already excited. Can't wait for my next lesson (when I get back from our European piano tour).

Not that it makes any difference to his abilities, but I do find it interesting that he plays so well, yet he's completely blind. He had four or five CDs out, very enjoyable listening.

Any way, here are the places and times he plays, if anyone gets a chance to check him and the restaurants out, please let me know. I can't vouch for the food, but I can tell you it's fun hearing Mike play.

From Mike Markaverich...

"Thursdays and Fridays I'm at Caragiulos Restaurant, 69 South Palm Avenue, Sarasota, from 5 to 8 PM (except Thursday June 23) and Saturdays and Sundays I'm at Euphemia Haye Restaurant, 5540 Gulf of Mexico Drive, Longboat Key, (upstairs in the Haye Loft) starting at 7:30 PM until they tell me to wrap things up. On Saturdays that's usually between 11 and 11:30 PM, and it's usually a little earlier on Sunday nights. It depends on business".



If I remember correctly, Mike Markaverich is the piano player on earlier posts to this forum from Nick's Piano Showroom. In that earlier post, I think he actually was playing the HG 178 that I ultimately purchased. If that's your teacher, I'd be interested in hearing about his approach and your progress. I didn't yet find it on your website, but you can find him here on Nick's site (look for videos on the right side of the webpage):

Rossi's in Big Pine, CA. At least as of a couple of years ago. The food is overpriced and less than mediocre, just about anybody could make better Italian at home. The piano is an old, beat up, house painted upright, probably a Baldwin. the guy playing it looks like he was a enforcer for Sonny Barger and had just been released from San Quentin.

He's pretty good, though. An excellent sight reader, he played everythiong from the Addams Family Theme to the Moonlight Sonata.

When we left I threw five bucks in the tip jar, trying not to make eye contact.

In Kansas City t the Westin Crown Centre, I think on the third floor, maybe the second, is an old Yamaha grand. Ivory keys, I think, some of the keys are bare. It's pretty beat up, but I enjoyed playing it while waiting for a train last year. The action was pretty good. Some guy and his kids stopped by to give me a tip!

New Orleans, LA:

Fritzel's Jazz Pub
733 Bourbon St

The house band is there most nights. Who all is playing varies from night to night. There's always a drummer and bass player, and either a clarinet, trumpet, banjo or maybe 2 of them, and most nights Richard Scott is on piano. The whole band is great....but of course the pianist is what makes it for me. They play old timey traditional jazz. Tip him and ask nicely and Richard will play a ragtime solo for you :-) They have a full bar and are cigar-friendly, if that matters to anyone (it's of utmost importance to me LOL).

Pat O'brien's
718 St Peter (just off Bourbon St)

This place is a must-see for tourists. Their signature drink, the hurricane, is a must-try. Pat O's has a big open courtyard with a gorgeous fountain. Off to the side of the courtyard is an enclosed piano bar. I've actually only been there once, and it's been over 10 years ago. My memory is foggy (too many hurricanes? LOL), they play pop and cocktail-lounge type stuff. I remember hearing "Piano Man" by Billy Joel. Writing this reminds me that I should check it out on my next trip down.

I go to New Orleans fairly often, but I'm only recently had any inkling to see live piano music. Any other suggestions appreciated. I'll post up if I find some other places as well.

Thanks gahdzila, good timing.

Kathy and I are hoping to get to New Orleans the end of the month.
Our friend concert pianist Jeffrey Biegel is playing with the LSO.

We've never been to New Orleans, you can't visit without making time to hear some good jazz.

Not exactly a venue, pianist Bob Milne is sheduled to perform in Brooksville FL on Feb. 11. He plays mostly popular music (ragtime is his specialty, but also boogie woogie, blues, show tunes, pop tunes) and some classical (Bach, Mozart).

This is part of a subscription series, so individual tickets are not sold, but if anyone is interested, let me know and I'll try to get free tickets for them.

Hop,

Sounds like fun.
Kathy and I would love to go if possible.

I'm in Largo, she's in St. Pete, so not too far away (about 1-1/2 hour I think).

I'll try to get two of the tickets; I'll let you know. I think the distribution date is in early January, so I can let you know one way or the other well before the performance date.

The Sunday Brunch at Cafe Fleuri at the Langham Hotel in Boston has a Jazz Trio on Sundays that includes a pianist. Fun but expensive place for families. Come hungry as the buffet includes sushi, appetizers, breakfast with omelette station, carving station, pasta station, and the famous chocolate fountain and chocolate bar. Some of the music this weekend included the Mission Impossible Theme plus lots of jazz standards (Song for My Father, All of Me, ...) Lots of birthdays being celebrated. Piano is a keyboard rather than acoustic.

They also do the chocolate bar on Saturdays, but I'm not sure about the live music.

Okay, I gotta admit I haven't read this entire thread, but I've perused it a couple times and left frustrated. There's gotta be a better way of compiling all this info into a more user friendly (i.e., searchable by locale) format??? Any computer experts got a suggestion(s)? I'd be willing to put some time into a project if it would be something very useful to people and with strong suggestions and support!
