EP1: Piano Music Show Podcast-Soothing Melodies for Work

Piano Music Show Podcast offering great live piano music to get you through your day at work, at home, in the car. From Dan Gloglee at www.PianoMusicShow.com

Tell us what you think and how you would like the show to go in the future.

Is This Really A Cubs World Series?

Really?!? A Cubs World Series

A Cubs World Series? Did this really happen? Are the Cubs actually in The World Series this year? It’s hard to believe. There are many things that are tough to get our heads around this year. But what if? Cubs fans, like me, are finally allowed to think about, “What If … ?”

So we will see. I am a True Cubs Fan. I don’t really believe anything will happen. Something always does. Let’s face it, they ARE the Cubs.

While other Cubs Fans are excited, I remain skeptical. Dubious at best.

Something is going to happen. Then we’re left to think let’s wait’ll next year. But this might be different. This might be the real deal. Maybe the Cubs won’t be like the old Flubs. We’re going to enjoy this while we can.

But … What If? cubs_world_series

Do you think Hell will freeze over? Many of the people who are running for office this year are trying to tell us that if we don’t vote for them, then hell will definitely freeze over. But as I was watching the Cubs this year (and last) you can see these guys are really talented. They’re dialed in. They’re up to the task.

Our oldest boy, Keaton, is a professional broadcaster. So I believe him when he says, “Watching this team is like catching lightening in a bottle.”

So I am going to watch. Every game. Every pitch. I’m glad my schedule not only put me back in Chicago for this (I sort of planned it that way). But I’m also glad I’m not working. I don’t have any gigs scheduled for this weekend. I want to enjoy this.

I remember during one of the Bulls’ championships back in the 90s, I was working a steady gig at a restaurant down on Rush Street. I was scheduled to play right during the game. So they would have me play for a bit during pre-game warm ups. Then the game came on. I sat there and watched it. Then I went home.

I don’t want to do that. I want to catch every bit of these games. Lightening in a bottle.

I was over in Europe this Fall. I was getting excited then. But Europeans don’t care about baseball. They care about football. The kind you play with your feet. When I mentioned it, they only replied, “What’s a Cub?

cubs_nl_champsSo I’m here with my hometown folks. Family. Friends. Cubs fans from all over. Wrigleyville is going to erupt. It already has.

If the Cubs do manage to win the World Series this year, Then you might want to go and locate your warm winter clothes. Because Hell just might freeze over.

Or maybe that’s just the politicians talking.

Company Event Entertainment Just Got Easier

So I want to talk about all the company event entertainment coming up that we have on tap for everyone, now that I know you all like my new logo,

As you know the Holiday season is upon us. If you’re not sure, then just turn on your TV or your radio> It’s okay. It’s safe to do so now that the elections are over and done with. When you do, you will see a semblance of Christmas ads already in full swing. I guess advertisers are getting a good rate now that the politicians are out of the way.

company event entertainment with live music and comedy

Company Event Entertainment

We have a wide variety of live music acts available for your company Christmas party again this year. Most importantly — it is very affordable when you go with one of the great piano players we have on board. Namely Me. Dan Gillogly. Okay … so it ain’t bragging if you can do it. But as much fun as you guys have, it is more fun for me. I’d love to hear from you so we can get things rolling.

We had another fantastic night of entertainment last Saturday night. People came together singing songs that everyone knew the words to and laughing along with all the improvised comedy and having a great time listening to live music as their entertainment.

Your party planning never got easier. Just pick up the phone and call Amber at +1 773-527-7417. We may still have your date available. It’s hard to say. There’s always one way to find out. If you’re the one in charge of finding great entertainment for company event this year, give her a call. I can GUARANTEE  you will have fun! You guys will be talking about the great laughs for months — possibly years after the superior night of live music and comedy entertainment at your company event.

Why Live Music is So Important

Sometimes we really can’t explain why or what we’re doing onstage when we’re playing live music at company events or as party entertainers. But we do know this: It Is SO-O important.

I had a woman come up to me after a show this last weekend. She was so emphatic about letting us know how good she felt.

She said, “My husband and I haven’t been out since our house was destroyed in a tornado.”

I think the Greeks were right. Music helps to heal. It moves large internal objects that we can not see. God gave us music so we could pray with out words.

She was positively invigorated after an evening of live music and comedy. When I see that happen, I just want to tell everybody. It is so essential that we work to get ourselves back in balance — especially after Mother nature changes our lives forever in a single act.

The tornado that took their house changed their lives in an instant. Hard to explain why. Never may be a good one. But I do know this. Music can change your life for the better in an instant too. Hard to explain why. We just know that is does. Sometime music may not get rid of all the lousy things that are going on in between your ears or in your neighborhood. But will change how you feel so that maybe — just maybe you can get through all the stuff you can not explain.

Our jobs as entertainers is to help people feel better — in spite of what is going on.

I don’t know her name. But I know I will never forget her. We don’t know how important live music is for our souls. But I do know this. I am truly honored and blessed and every time I get onstage. Thank you in advance for letting us help you.

PIano Music Maker Satisfies The Masses

As a piano music maker in the piano bars around Chicago  

I get the opportunity to meet and greet some of the finest of citizens.

It is my pleasure to introduce to one such group of fine patrons from the late night gig last week. Just a warning Poison Squirrels, I mean, Boys and Girls, alcohol was involved in this particular encounter.  

This is just one cute little tale I’d love to pull on your coat tails about, Gather ’round kids . . .

;/;/;/;/;/;/;/;/;;/;/;/;/;/;/;/;/;;/;/;/;/;/;/;/;/;;/;/;/;/;/;/;/;/;

I took a break and walked around the room to talk with people at the club and see what they wanted to hear for the next set.

One highly energetic and slightly giddy trio of young women had a request of sorts.

The first one said, “Let’s find you some good songs to play. Do you play any Shania Twain?”

No. I haven’t played any of her songs in years.”

The next wanted to know, “Do you do any Taylor Swift?”

Do I look like I know any Taylor Swift?”

So the next one says, “How about some N’Sync?”

I said, “I thought you wanted to hear something good.”

To All My Friends

They finally laughed. In fact, it was as if someone flipped a switch because then the first one said, “Well I just thought you could spice things up. What Lionel Richie do you know that will really rock the house?”

I smiled and told them, “Ummmmm … how ’bout none?” They got the joke.

I quickly changed the subject by getting someone to take our picture. I love my job!

-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

The best part is I get to play to all kinds of people. When folks have an idea about what they think is going to be a good song, I can usually play it. But as a professional, I know which songs are going to work. Stress the word ‘KNOW’. I’ve been doing this awhile now. I’ve got a repertoire that expands decades. Anything you want to hear will fit. However, as a profession piano music maker, I can tell you, without a doubt, that Lionel Richie will never get the room rocking. Sorry my dear.  Thanks for playing along though. We sure appricate the thoughts and condolences.
