Our customized mobile piano bar (a pickup truck decked out with a keyboard and PA system) will make stops at five Harlem and East Harlem hot spots. At each location, we will pass out songbooks and microphones so that you can sing your favorite Ella tune along with piano accompaniment. Be a star for the day!
