Petaluma Pete plays downtown

2008-03-18 14:29:01.74042+00 by Dan Lyke 3 comments

Petaluma has a number of street musicians, including "Petaluma Pete", a guy with an upright piano on a cart who plays ragtime and similar on various street corners. Petaluma360 follows Petaluma Pete around as he plays in all the stores in Petaluma that have pianos in them. Yeah, downtown really is like that.

Boulder has a street pianist as well but he plays mostly 60s and 70s pop music and gets the crowd to sing along.

There's a guy that does this in SF's Dogpatch area as well... Says that the difficuly of keeping a mobile piano in tune is the reason he plays mostly ragtime.
