Jan Preston ‘88 Piano's I Have Known ‘ August tour (18 dates) 2019.

The show I’m performing is called 88 PIANOS I have known with extraordinary images of pianos (yes 88 of them) and personal anecdotes, as well as new songs (Same Sky, Olds on the Loose) and a new killer version of a tune called Nutrocker, based on Tchaikovsky’s Nutcracker Suite played in fast boogie style. I’ve been practising this a lot and my left hand is threatening to seize, well hopefully not until the end of the tour.

Come see Jan and Mike perform for the first time in Picton for a Sunday afternoon concert with doors opening at 2.30 pm - tickets online at Eventfinda or in person at Take Note in Picton pre sales are only $20 + b fee with limited door sales on the day at $25

Yours in boogie,
Jan
My latest CD PLAY IT AGAIN JAN contains 13 tracks, mostly original, ranging from boogiewoogie piano (Gold Coast Boogie, Blues and the Boogie, Pumpin Paul), poignant songs, (The Sun Shines, Your Own Life) as well as humour (Queen of Cash, Scared of the Dark).
I’m thrilled with this CD, it’s definitely my best!
