‘Glad to say we are up and running at Kemoll’s Chophouse in Westport, St. Louis USA. Having restarted back in July, things are moving again! FYI, Kemoll’s has implemented movable clear dividers to break up the open areas and patio dining is now available (with flame heaters when needed!) I am glad to note the recent posts from some Stanford University researchers and other experts stating that in light of new data, the scary projections have been tamped down quite a bit. I don’t know how else to state it. Personally, it’s wonderful to be performing and sharing my music with you again! The elegant, new KEMOLL’s Chophouse in Westport Plaza St. Louis County must be experienced- so check it out! My hours are 5- 8pm Tuesday thru Saturday except when noted otherwise. Kemoll’s is a St. Louis culinary gem dating back 93 years to 1927. Still run old-style by the original family. Their homemade $7. appetizers include T-Ravs, amazing meatballs, hand-stuffed Peppadew peppers, Bangkok chicken and more. Happy Hour pricing is all the way to 8:30, and you are welcome to a table too! –Also please note that I am still available to perform for special events, so don’t hesitate contacting me through this site and thanks! -Alan
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 Kemoll’s (see article left), as well as playing years at Ruth’s Chris and 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
(Previously posted) There’s An Alien In My Soup is a musical stage play based upon actual interviews of military and governmental personnel. Coming LIVE to ‘Theater In The Park’ in O’Fallon MO July 18th, please see below! 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, COMING UP perhaps in YOUR town! (If you know of a great venue for this production, please use the CONTACT page and write to me!) See more at the website dedicated to the play, AlienInMySoup.com and make plans to attend! (Presently booking theatrical dates the world over).
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!
