In the centre of the 75th bday bash of my dad i had the joy and honour to play a boogie woogie in our living room with family and best friends of my dad. The first time I say my uncle Paul play a boogie woogie i was 5 years old. I love the vibe on this video, the movie was shot by my beautiful love which saw the moment and captured it for me since these private moments normally don’t get filmed. Very happy with this snippet, enjoy listening to it. Boogie Woogie piano playing is such a joy! :–))
