THIS WEEK; Al’s Public Appearances

Catch the SilverPhreek trio This Thursday Sept 20th at Joe’s Cafe in The Loop area STL USA. With myself, Vince Martin & Curt Landes. There is no ‘Joe’ at Joe’s, and by the way, it’s not really a ‘Cafe’- but this 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’.  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.

Ruth’s Chris Steak House Clayton  In St. Louis • USA- I will be performing with my TRIO on Saturday Sept 22nd & Sept 29th 630 – 930 pm. Weather permitting we will be on The Patio -if not then inside… (NOTE: Except for Sat Sept 8th, this is generally a recurring gig at least through December 2018). Please note too, my DUO also plays at the Downtown St. Louis location of Ruth’s-Chris on most Fridays.. (note: There THIS FRIDAY Sept 21st & 28th).

‘Hire Al’ for your special event! (that’s me)!

Whether you’re planning a soiree at your home, the music of your ‘Special Day’ or a corporate bash in a stately ballroom, you are welcome to contact me directly to discuss the musical needs of your event. As well as corporate events, I have performed for orgs such as the American Heart Ball, Make A Wish and Great Circle. Some regional events have included Music Festivals, as well as events at the Chase Hotel’s Starlight & Khorassan Ballrooms, St. Louis Country Club, The Fox Theater, Shaw’s Garden’s ‘Wine In The Garden’ and The Dark Room at The Grandel – My trio recently performed at Illinois’ S.I.U. Edwardsville for a college fundraiser. I have sung with the Boston Pops and at some of St. Louis’ top bistros and steakhouses including my present tenure at Ruth’s Chris, as well as playing years in The Ritz Carlton St. Louis’ Lobby Lounge.

And I love playing and sharing my music. To me, music is that positive charge that goes through to the guests… So, whether I’m creating a welcome mood on solo piano, or with a full band (or even on drums with the eclectic ‘Silverphreek’ trio), you know that my performance will help lift your event (or venue) to the inspired level you seek. Use the CONTACT page on this site or message TapGuy@ gmail. com – About the video on this page; Though I am a solo pianist, this showcases Straight Up- A Shot Of Sinatra a concert at The Sheldon Concert Hall in St. Louis. Thank you!  -Alan

Alien In My Soup!

There’s An Alien In My Soup is a musical stage play based upon actual interviews of military and governmental personnel. I portray these men who recount extraordinary experiences with UFOs, alien visitors and the resistance of governments to the open discussion of these incidents. I wrote this stage play to help reveal where we truly are on the timeline of discovery. This play is a walk along the precipice of the unknown… An entertaining look at the most confounding question of our time…. What’s up with alien life? Not just a play for ‘believers’ or ‘the initiated’ but for skeptics and those who have barely delved into the subject. As one playgoer said, “This play has to be seen by everyone.. I loved every aspect of it!” Don’t miss the next production of There’s An Alien In My Soup. See more at the website dedicated to the play, Presently booking theatrical dates the world over!

Hammer Time

My collaboration with longtime bud Al Hammerman goes back to when we were kiddos. Now years later the friendship has been rekindled through music. Al’s talent for writing good tunes has brought together musicians and engineers with Hollywood and paid off in great songs now recorded on more than five albums. What’s cool too is that the dozen or so songs I’ve recorded in those projects may now be stumbled upon in the sound tracks of various movies and TV shows- just some of which are seen here. This guy is good! Check out a couple of sample sounds on this site in the MP3 Section and check out Al’s site too . Also, here’s the Giorgio Armani ‘Made To Measure‘ video!
