McKee Thatcher Plays Impressive Piano at Vicky's Of Santa Fe

It is so satisfying to find young adults who appreciate classical music, but to find one who also loves the songs from the  "Great American Songbook",  popular songs written in recent years and Jazz is truly exciting.  Vicky's has welcomed to its music showcase, McKee Thatcher, a 17 year old gifted pianist who lives in Bermuda Dunes.  McKee has been playing piano since he was 3 and has a very welcoming personality in addition to being a wonderful musician.  He loves Classical music but has the ability to cross over into many musical genres including Jazz.  He also has written many Classical compositions that are remarkable.  I knew little about McKee before I made a visit to hear him early one Tuesday evening.  He exceeded my expectations and provided two hours of pure musical enjoyment.  One of the pieces he performed was Beethoven's beautiful "Fur Elise" in a Jazz format!

McKee performs at Vicky's on the first Tuesday of the month from 5:00pm to 7:00pm and I absolutely recommend all of my readers to go to see him.  You will not be disappointed; you will be up-lifted!  Young gifted people like Robert need our support and encouragement!

McKee also fills in at times, so check Vicky's entertainment schedule to see when he might be playing.
