Michael Kaeshammer was classically trained in his native Germany, fell in love with boogie-woogie piano at age 13; six recordings later  - his latest on the Alert label, Lovelight, included in the ticket price - he has become Canada’s brightest triple-threat combo of piano virtuosity, vocal ability, and charisma.  The core of a Kaeshammer live performance is his extraordinary ability to stir or hush a large crowd using his piano and his sense of humour.
