Start with Boogie Woogie!


Recommended Posts

I can’t believe someone here knows the Refreshments! Betty Grable is one my staple tunes when I wield my brushcutter. To attend one of their concerts, in Sweden, where the crowd’s all jitterbugging has been a bucket list item of mine for a long time.

Thanks for getting my foot tapping!

Thanks @Lawdog Dago Dom:D
 

Love that music! :)

 

My Dad took piano lessons as a kid. Much to my Nanny’s (grandmother) chagrine he came away with a talent for playing Boogie Woogie and not much else. :lol:

Welp, since it’s Saturday Night and the thread’s still rockin’, one more Refreshments tune won’t hurt.

If you find Sweet Little Lisa on a jukebox in the US, it’s likely Dave Edmunds w/Albert Lee. In Europe, it’ll be Albert Lee and the Refreshments. Our piano man is still pounding it out

I remember seeing this when it happened on an old late night music show on NBC called "Night Music."  That was decades ago.

Wow. There’s nothing missing to the ear, it’s like the upright bass is there, only it’s not. 
Who is the Dad? Tell me someone that good isn’t a stock broker by day and he’s just helping his daughter out at her drum recital.

 

Martin Pyrker is the name of the dad.  He's an Austrian Blues/Boogie Woogie piano player with quite a name in the area.  His daughter Sabine Pyrker is the drummer.  She's quite talented.  Both are professional musicians.
