    Re: Pianos in Pubs

    Long story short. I was once offered a job playing piano in a pub on Nantucket after Labor Day. Regular player was quitting. Had to turn it down to go finish law school. I never could play decent boogie woogie though like this guy. 55 years later - I still can't. I do have a gig tonight - playing ukulele in a pub in Westport with my group. Gotta run now.

    There once was a piano player in Nantucket
    Who couldn't play boogie in a bucket.
    He quit for law school,
    And 55 years later.....

    Oh, wait. Can't do ditties like that without getting thrown out of here.

    This is one of my favorite star undercover things, all those people coming and going and so few stopping and only one knowing who he even is.

    Cheers,
