Ortlieb's piano update

My Sunday March 13 post about Ortlieb's Jazzhaus in Philadelphia mentioned the sorry state of their house piano. Apparently, they read my blog and decided to do something about it as noted in Michaels Klein's "Inqlings" column in the Philadelphia Inquirer.

The same article mentions that Joe Piscopo (of Saturday Night Live fame) might be open to running for Governor of New Jersey. I had nothing to do with that.

The article text:

"Ortlieb's Jazzhaus in Northern Liberties, one of Philly's longer-running jazz rooms, is passing the hat for a new piano. "It's been here about 16, 17 years," says owner Pete Souders of the club's existing 88. "It's pretty well beat-up." The first of several benefits will begin at 8:45 p.m. tomorrow. Souders will allocate the door charge ($10) to the cause, and the featured act, Luvpark, will donate its fee. Souders says the club is looking for a 5-foot-2 or 5-foot-3 Baldwin or Yamaha baby grand, new or used."
