Steve Lawless at the Tudor House
We used to enjoy listening and singing with Steve Lawless at a piano
bar on third Sundays. That fell by the wayside with the closing of the
Royal Oak in Blue Jay, about a year ago. Since then, Lawless has been
playing on a cruise ship, at Bin 189, and at the Piano & Song once or
twice a month in Crestline. We have seen little of him, though.
That could change for the better. The new Tudor House in the Lake
Arrowhead Villas aims to fill the vacuum left by the Royal Oak.
Lawless will be playing there twice a month on Sunday evenings from
6 to 10 pm, in October through December.
The first occasion with Lawless at the Tudor House is on Sunday,
October 13. Let's go find out if this is like the favorite old piano bar
Dress is casual. Reservations are not required. There is a cover or
minimum (I'm not sure which) of $15.
To get to the Tudor House, simply drive down Arrowhead Villa Road
from Hwy 18. You'll see it; it's the only thing around that looks
anything like one. A map is below.
Pianist Steve Lawless has a passion and a gift for
communication through music, and works so fluidly
with the audience that the audience becomes the
performance. A composer, Lawless can play a piece,
without sheet music, having heard it only once.
When some from the audience are coaxed into singing,
(and it doesn't take much coaxing!) Steve can shift and
rearrange the piece to adapt to the singers as they sing.
This is a long-time favorite among locals. It is certainly
one of my favorites, so join us!
