Interview with Jazz Pianist Mike Markaverich
If you live in or around Sarasota Florida you and have probably heard extraordinary Jazz pianist Mike Markaverich play. Although blind from birth Mike was trying to play the songs he heard on the radio on his toy piano by the time he was three years old. A neighbor generously provided little Mike with his first piano, but pursuit of the music that would become his life, was very challenging. Listen to this extraordinary man describe the dedication with which he pursued his passion, experience his delightful sense of humor, and listen to cuts from his CD, Solid. And come to the Venice Art Center – 390 Nokomis Avenue South, Venice, FL on Tuesday, 6/10/14 from 2-4 PM for a very special event; the recording of the Mike Markaverich Trio with Ernie Williford, on Bass & Vocals & Johnny Moore on Drums. All those attending may sign up to receive a free copy once the recording is released. Admission is free.
