“This is a pianist from Switzerland who plays some of the best Boogie Woogie anywhere.
He is so BIG over there, they hold a week-long Boogie Woogie contest every year and all the best players in the world are invited. In this video, he is joined by 2 amazing dancers.
Turn up the volume, watch and give it a listen! If you experience any trouble tapping your foot to the beat, you had better hurry and schedule an appointment with your physician. Now that is what I call some real dancing.”
Thanks to Nancy (Thielen) Ohman for providing this video clip.
Be sure to watch the entire clip. Don’t be fooled by the beginning. Enjoy!
This is a clever way to put a “senior moment” to music. A cross between Jimmy Buffett and ’60s hippy. Enjoy!
