DREAMSCAPES

Craig Bidondo's Facebook Live Video Event

DREAMSCAPES is a performance of live solo piano music by Craig Bidondo, especially created to help you relax at the end of your day.

In this strange time this we're all living in, there are so many cares and concerns that are new, and others that have been amplified. Our existence has changed so much... And personally, Craig began realizing that he was having a hard time getting to sleep at night with so much on his mind. So one night he decided to listen to music from one his favorite pianists/composers, Richard Souther. He was surprised by how much his spirit and mind were soothed... And he thought, I wonder if me playing piano music live at night would do the same thing for other people that Richard's music did for me?

So that's what Dreamscapes is all about. Tune is, and let yourself rest. Whether you choose to listen while you're getting things done at home, or working, or laying in bed, or maybe even luxuriating in a bubble bath (don't drop your phone!), let your soul be soothed, let your thoughts unwind, let yourself heart rate slow down. And enjoy the present moment.

To tune in, just go to Craig's Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/cbidondo) at 8:30 pm on Tuesday evenings. Look for the live video feed!

DREAMSCAPES is free for all to enjoy. If you'd like to participate in help keep the music alive, Craig appreciates any gifts that he receives from people! Here's some ways you can choose to give to him if you'd like:

THE BAGEL HOUR with Craig Bidondo: a Facebook Live Video Performance

 —  —

Jazzy Bagels, 5 East Powell Boulevard, Gresham, OR 97030

This is a "gather-around-the-piano-bar" feeling event for the whole family! Hang out with a virtual room-full of people, all listening to the same piano music, played for you live and in real-time. Connect with other people in the comments section, leave requests for the pianist, and enjoy a unique experience with people all over the world!

This event is in lieu of Craig's long-standing (21 years!!!) gig playing at a local bagel-bistro in Gresham, OR. Due to government COVID-19 health guidelines, he's not able to play there right now. But Jazzy Bagels is still open for take-out orders during the pandemic crisis... And since we can't gather around the piano eating lunch and drinking your coffees right now, Craig's bringing the music to your home!

For the time being, he'll be doing a live-stream performance from his home each Saturday from noon - 1:30 pm until we can all be together in one room again. And as long as Jazzy's is open for take-out, you can go get your lunch there and still make it back home in time to eat it with live piano music streaming into the comfort of your own home.

Even if you don't live near Jazzy's, you're still welcome to drop in to the Facebook Live Video event and listen as Craig plays. And you're definitely encouraged to drop some requests his way in the comments section of the event! He's happy to keep the music flowing for you.

Also, don't forget: In classic piano-bar style, there's a virtual tip jar too! As all his public performances have been canceled for an undetermined amount of time, Craig would be thrilled with your financial support for the music he's continuing to bring to you all. If you're able to contribute, here's three places you can do it at:
