Rocket Piano Bar Bio 

Rocket Piano Bar started playing piano at age 6 with classical lessons, performing Mozart in school auditoriums at age 10, rock ‘n roll bands at age 15, jazz groups at age 20 and piano bar at age 25. That was over 50 years ago and in the intervening years he has played and performed in almost any venue you can imagine. Through these years he has developed a style on the piano with unique interpretations of classic rock, jazz and popular songs.

I create exciting musical experiences by performing classic rock 'n roll songs on the piano, often with completely new interpretations. Favorite melodies from the past 60 years that are the soundtrack of your life. All styles from psychedelic rock to mellow jazz with the amazing variability of the sound of a piano from goodnight lullaby to intense angst. 

I call the show Organized Random Chaos. 

First, my music is organized in that I play songs with beginnings, middles, and endings often with specific structure. 

Second my music is random because I improvise so ever song is always different every time and the choice of songs depends on random events. 

And Third, my music is chaotic because that’s what happens when organized meets random – you get chaos. So sometimes phrases will come from nowhere and when I listen back I have no idea where it came from but I haved learned to love those moments because they are rare and sometime positively inspired. 

So, enjoy the music and make requests. Tell stories. Sing along. A Piano Bar is a place where people come to share music and camaraderie.
