This is a great thread, looks like an excellent resource to study. I am very interested in finding out about good piano venues.

Ask, and ye shall receive. TBROWN put Live Piano Venue map together, linked on the previous page:

Frank,

Have you compiled these wonderful suggestions into a single spreadsheet? It would be something great to refer to when I'm traveling.

This week is the grand opening of the first theater specifically built for jazz in the world, the SF Jazz Center, corner of Franklin and Fell in San Francisco. The Steinway D has arrived, and the Yamaha CFX and other pianos are due soon.

In the gigantic atrium of an office building in NYC(on 53rd Street between Madison and Park Ave. and next to Mason's Tennis Mart)the stride pianist Chuck Folds plays on weekdays from around noon-3pm It's completely free and he is sensational. He is also a walking encyclopedia of jazz history which he is very glad to share.

Just down the street from us in Duluth (NE Atlanta) is a great intimate venue for live music. Eddie Owens Presents at Red Clay Theater. The focus tends to be on singer/songwriters, but many are piano-centered now that we have a Hailun grand in there. Tickets are affordable, and they are attracting great musicians.

For example, this Saturday, March 16, you can see Jimmy Webb at the piano. The seats are comfortable and I love the staff at the venue, too.

There is a recently opened piano bar in Pécs, Hungary in case anyone ever wanders around here. The owner is an English pianist, they have regular classical and jazz evenings too. No website, just a facebook page:

And for something entirely different...hear the 1927 Wurlitzer Theater Organ played daily at the Organ Stop Pizza in Mesa, AZ.
This 400+ seat venue is a treat for everyone. Kids love it. Open 7 days a week, but check the hours.

I tuned today at the Sheba Piano Lounge at 1419 Fillmore Street in San Francisco, about halfway between the Fillmore Auditorium and Yoshi's San Francisco.

New Piano Jazz bar in New York's West Village. Here's a NY Times article about it. Small (very) and unamplified (which is really nice!). Solos, duos and trios - no room for drums. Saw the much underappreciated Anthony Wonsey there last night, with Dezron Douglas on bass.

A Piano Marathon happens regularly in the lobby of the Raue Center for the Arts in Crystal Lake Illinois. Every year there is the National Piano Conference. The video link is a sample of the lobby entertainment on Liberty the custom Baldwin Flag Piano. Mike Potts and Tom Steffens perform

The National Piano Conference at Raue Center is a great source for Live Piano Music throughout the year. Here is a video sample of Live Piano in the Raue Lobby during a recent conference piano marathon

There is a Yamaha grand piano in the lobby of Mercy Hospital, Fore River.
175 Fore River Pkwy
Portland, ME 04101

I will be there playing it the next couple of days as my Kathy is going in for the first of two complete knee replacements.

I'm happy they have a piano I can play (it even has a card on top saying to play it), it will take my mind off worrying about Kathy :-)
