Too Classy For Me

At, we believe that the world needs to be shown how to do REAL things, like how to yodel, how to host a classy dinner, how to get a fabulous Lindsay Lohan tan, how to dress up like the Olsen twins, how to record a smashing #1 single, etc. Really - important - things.

A Spotlight on John Guernsey, The Pianist ...

While pianist John Guernsey may be found performing at the Old Post Office Pavilion on most Tuesdays from 12 noon until 1 pm as was the case when I captured him last 18 December 2007 during my Holiday Season in Washington series when researching the internet for the purpose of this blog posting I learn that the Takoma Park resident is not only a Tin Pan Alley jazz and blues pianist who did a spell as a rocker in the hippie generation and once wrote an edgy song that Emmy Lou Harris recorded but, that, the Montgomery County pianist instructor is also an accomplished artist.

Here is a Google document that I prepared that highlights pertinent information found on the internet regarding the musician and artist John Guernsey of Takoma Park, Maryland.

Here is my Pianist John Guernsey - Old Post Office Pavilion / WDC - 18 December 2007 video compilation.
