“The Pianist” Michael Kaeshammer LIVE in concert
RENOWNED PIANIST MICHAEL KAESHAMMER CONCLUDING CONERT TOUR IN PRINCE GEORGE
PRINCE GEORGE, BC – KeyNote Productions is excited to present “The Pianist” Michael Kaeshammer LIVE in concert on Thursday, March 3, 2016 at the PG Playhouse as the final stop on his Canadian tour.
Kaeshammer, whose family moved to Canada from Germany in the mid-90s, is a jazz and boogie-woogie pianist, vocalist, composer, arranger, and producer. Classically trained, Kaeshammer began playing jazz and boogie-woogie in clubs all over Europe as a teenager. The “incendiary piano player”, as he is often described, has released ten studio albums, and has been nominated for seven JUNO Awards, winning two. Kaeshammer has also been named Musician of the Year and Entertainer of the Year at the Western Canadian Music Awards.
Michael Kaeshammer doesn’t simply wow you with his chops; he invites you in and talks to you. Yes, he’s a gifted singer and songwriter, a highly trained technician, interpreter and piano player. But also, on stage and off, he’s a consummate host.
Kaeshammer’s performances, on record and on stage, are an invitation to join the party. He doesn’t play at you. He plays with you. At one of his shows, you’re all in it together – not only part of the story, but virtually part of the band.
“For me the performance is as much about the energy coming off the stage as the energy coming from the audience. It’s about being myself, writing from the heart and showing my love for life. That’s what I want to convey. After the show, people ask me, ‘do you really have that much fun?’ And I say ‘you don’t know the half of it. It’s even more exhilarating than it looks’.”
A night with Michael and his band isn’t the kind of show where you just sit, watch and applaud politely every now and then. Their goal isn’t to intimidate you with the scholarly depth of their music, it’s to entertain, inform and include you – A wild ride with no fixed destination except where he feels he and the crowd want to go.
KeyNote Productions is thrilled to host Michael Kaeshammer LIVE in Prince George, BC at the PG Playhouse on Thursday, March 3rd at 7:30 pm. Tickets can be purchased online at www.TicketFly.com or at the door on the night of the event.
