It’a great to be playing piano in such a lovely spot again Every Thursday evening 5-7pm; The Ritz-Carlton Lobby Lounge St. Louis located at 100 Carondelet in Clayton/ St. Louis 63105.

Treat yourself to the newly refurbished plush surroundings, enjoy a martini and partake in the LL sushi bar. Scheduled for EVERY THURSDAY (not Thanksgiving- I will be at the Millennium Hotel BRUNCH that day). Ritz-Carlton (314) 863-6300. Ciao !
ALSO, on Every Sunday Evening: Oceano Bistro in Clayton 5pm till 8! This was just added (Bless them!) Oceano, known for its fresh seafood, open kitchen and massive marble bar never disappoints.

(314) 721-9400.
There is no ‘Joe’ at Joe’s, and by the way, it’s not really a ‘Cafe’- but this near-the-loop art studio and bohemian beerless-tavern is one of the best kept secrets in the STL music scene and has been called, ‘An absolute hidden gem’. This promises to be a night of good, original music skillfully conveyed by three jovial chaps, aka SilverFreak! In this Joe’s Cafe concert, we will be featuring the songs of pianist/ vocalist Curt Landes as backed by myself on vokes and drums and the talented singer-guitarist Vince Martin. Curt will be debuting his tune Joe’s Cafe (opening lines here borrowed from it!) and we will be reprising some of his other cool diddies such as Loads Of Love and Choo Choo. Other hits, surprises and requests will be covered! The trio will start about 8:00, with an intermission then going to about 10:30. There IS a $10 admission fee charged by the house. But no minimums, and you are welcome to bring your own wine, beer and picnic food or sandwiches from home or any of the loop restaurants! Hope to see you! Located in an apartment building area at 6014 Kingsbury Ave at Des Peres, STL MO 63112. Neighborhood: Skinker/DeBaliviere area. Easiest access is from the FP Expressway, just east of Skinker, Turn LEFT at Des Peres Ave., then go north to Kingsbury. See YOU!
So serious at the piano ! ! I will be more light-hearted this evening at Talayna’s restaurant in the west Creve Coeur/ Chesterfield area at 141 and Olive Blvd (in the Dierberg’s Center) 6:30 start time. Celebrating 35 YEARS of business in THIS LOCATION means that they’ve been doing things RIGHT (not the least of which is choosing their music talent!). So consider stopping by to order the famous TALAYNA’s salad or hand-tossed pizza (or even some Mid Eastern dishes). And request a tune! Chesterfield, MO 63017 314 469 6650.
