Piano Tuning for Harry Connick Jr. at the FRAZE

I had the opportunity to tune for Harry Connick Jr. last week at the FRAZE in Kettering, Ohio.  I tuned his personal Steinway which has a really cool wrap on the case that makes it look like stone when combined with the stage lights.  Emily and I got to hang out back stage and enjoyed the concert.

Take a listen to the piano and the genius playing of Harry Connick Jr.
