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