Open Mic Night who? Yesterday, some guy played the beloved piano outside the cafeteria for ten hours straight! From 3 pm to 11 pm, Piano Guy played hits like: Don’t Stop Believin’, “You’re Beautiful,” “She Will Be Loved,” and other hit classics that take a simple three-chord progression.
During this 10-hour musical bender, Piano Guy hit on some freshmen girls, played unimpressive ballads to any of them that stayed for more than three minutes to listen, and made a wonderful environment for all participating in lunch or supper, if wonderful meant mediocre mid-2000’s pop hits that could be played by any with a concept of what a note is.
Piano Guy has yet to contact us on his next performance, but rumor has it that he will be starting to tour full time next year, with stops in Bjorling, the Chapel, and that one room with a piano in it in Vickner. No keys will go unscathed in this pilgrimage- no unwary girl un-swooned.
When asked if he was looking to form a larger musical group rather than stay a solo artist, Piano Guy responded, “Hey there Delilah. What’s it like in New York City? I’m a thousand miles away but girl tonight you look so pretty…(etc)”
His best friend, Guitar guy, has yet to actually play in public anywhere, but he has brought his guitar in its case to the Caf on three different occasions just so people think that he might sort of know what to do with it.
