Gold Coast Jazz & Blues - Jan Preston - 88 Pianos Honky Tonk Town

Jan Preston Band
“88 Pianos Honky Tonk Town”

Named Australia’s Queen of Boogie, she is known for her magnetic live performances of astonishing piano playing, original songs, compositions and mastery of boogie-woogie which have captivated audiences at festivals and in concerts around the world. Jan Preston’s outstanding new show “88 Pianos” takes us on a road to piano stardom with an engrossing combination of skillfully performed piano music, images, songs and stories.

There are 88 keys on every piano, the piano often being referred to as the 88’s. But in reality Jan Preston has known many more than that. During a lifetime of composing and songwriting, Jan has recorded and performed on 100’s of instruments. “For me, pianos have individual personalities, quirks, strengths and weaknesses just like people, and I take photos of every single one that I play. They can be extraordinarily beautiful, quirky, majestic, humorous, tender, broken, and so on, and my images, songs and stories have seen audiences move from tears to laughter.” These tales weave around Jan’s boogie, ragtime and improvisatory styles of piano quartet music and songs, performed together with acoustic bass, guitar and drums, along with her thrilling virtuoso style.

Presented by the Gold Coast Jazz and Blues Club
