New Piano Jazz bar in New York's West Village. Here's a NY Times article about it. Small (very) and unamplified (which is really nice!). Solos, duos and trios - no room for drums. Saw the much underappreciated Anthony Wonsey there last night, with Dezron Douglas on bass.

A Piano Marathon happens regularly in the lobby of the Raue Center for the Arts in Crystal Lake Illinois. Every year there is the National Piano Conference. The video link is a sample of the lobby entertainment on Liberty the custom Baldwin Flag Piano. Mike Potts and Tom Steffens perform

The National Piano Conference at Raue Center is a great source for Live Piano Music throughout the year. Here is a video sample of Live Piano in the Raue Lobby during a recent conference piano marathon

There is a Yamaha grand piano in the lobby of Mercy Hospital, Fore River.
175 Fore River Pkwy
Portland, ME 04101

I will be there playing it the next couple of days as my Kathy is going in for the first of two complete knee replacements.

I'm happy they have a piano I can play (it even has a card on top saying to play it), it will take my mind off worrying about Kathy :-)

Just about any place in New Orleans that has live music.


Always working to improve "Chopsticks". I'll never give up on it.

There is a nice satin black K Kawai ~5'8" near United baggage claim #13 and the closest elevator in the Minneapolis airport (code MSP). It is in great condition, ready for a concert on full stick, and has an adjustable bench. I played Chopin Mazurkas there yesterday and today. Yesterday, someone left a pile of pennies on the music desk. Hmmm???

In the Sacramento, CA region, I know of the following pianos:


In Woodland, CA there is:

- "Guinevere's Cafe and Bistro". A new Italian place with a vertical Schafer piano (tuned by me). I play there pretty often and they have had an open mic.

- "Common Grounds Woodland". A coffee place with a vertical Cable piano (tuned by me). I play there most Wednesdays in the morning and they have an open mic once in a while.

In Sacramento, CA there is:

- "Biba". An Italian restaurant and bar with three pianists covering Wednesday-Saturday. A nice grand.

- "Arthur Henry's Supper Club and Ruby Room". A new small place with a small stage and a digital piano. Live music sometimes.

- "Sheraton Hotel". They have a Yamaha grand. I heard they used to have someone play it but I don't think they do now.

- "The Back Door". A bar with a grand in Old Sacramento. The piano is not played and has not been serviced for a while. Recently they had a popular lounge singer on weekends but he did not use the piano.

- "Coconut Grove". A bar with a nice Kawai grand, also in Old Sacramento. The piano used to be in the front of the bar but is now in the back and I don't think it gets played.

- "Sammy's Astro Club". A bar in West Sacramento with a grand covered with a 'piano bar' top. It was a popular place in the 80's but the piano is not played now.

In Davis, CA there is:

- "Our House". A restaurant with a Kawai grand piano (tuned by me). They have a jazz trio Thursdays and often a solo pianist Saturdays.

- "Palm Court Hotel". They have a Stodart grand (tuned by me), but don't feature any music. This piano will probably not be around much longer due to upcoming renovations.

There is one in the train station in Venice, Italy. Piano is in tough shape, located by widows looking out to where you get the water bus.

Also one in the bar on the island of Certosa (Venice).
The restaurant is called Il Certosino.
Food is excellent as is the service. Old upright piano in the bar is actually in pretty good shape.
Not much to see on the island, but worth the trip if you have a vapperetto pass (water bus).
We had lunch there, under a giant umbrella, could see both sides of the island from our table.
Waiter spoke good English and he had a great personality.

If you are visiting South New Zealand and would like to pop down to the city of Timaru, you could have the opportunity to play the world's longest piano, built by Adrian Mann; which is situated in St. Mary's Church, Church Street, Timaru. Adrian and other artists hold concerts in the church periodically. Adrian began building the piano about 11 years ago, when he was around 16 years old; and has made a fantastic job of it. It has been on countrywide tours occasionally. It is now housed in the church, and Adrian welcomes visitors to play his piano. Adrian may be contacted via his website: www.alexanderpiano.yolasite.com

Studio City, CA:

La Loggia restaurant 11814 Ventura Blvd. has an Ehrbar grand. They used to have a pianist, but now it isn't played except rarely by customers. Lunch time is often quite slow there.
