Upcoming November Performances & Events

Jerry PerrineOLD TIME PIANO
Jerry Perrine
Jerry Perrine specializes in the classic American piano styles of ragtime, traditional jazz, blues and boogie-woogie. As a teenager, Perrine became fascinated with the ragtime piano music of Scott Joplin and others, and he taught himself how to play ragtime piano. As he studied the music and the history of that piano style, he learned of other styles and pianists such as Eubie Blake, Jelly Roll Morton, Fats Waller and many others. He learned how to play and compose in each style, and he has enjoyed performing old time piano music for nearly thirty years in Ann Arbor, Detroit and Chicago. Recently, he has been a featured performer at the Greenfield Village Ragtime Street Fair in Dearborn, Michigan.
