Bob Goldstick - I am piano man who has played everywhere you can think of. I've played in elementary school shows, Hollywood musicals; piano bars in New York City, Paris, and San Francisco; blues, jazz, and rock-n-roll bands around the country. From 1987 to 2001, I played at Clint Eastwood's Mission Ranch in Carmel, California, where I perfected the piano bar experience.

For the past 25 years I have been performing regularly in nursing and retirement homes and had the experience of seeing the amazing power of music to improve the quality of life for folks in these situations. I have always felt that having a quality, live show every day would make life a little better. Now with the power of Concert Window and the internet I can provide these shows, if not in person, at least a live, interactive experience of enjoying music that they love . and have it available for everyone for FREE. I will usually be performing Mon-Fri at 1:30 PM Pacific Time

My first love is playing the piano and I am lucky enough to have been given the gift of being able to perform every style of piano music--from rock to jazz, show tunes to Dixieland, latin, country.  This ability, combined with years of entertaining and singing in piano bars around the world, brought me to a place where singing and playing just comes naturally.

I started in the 50’s playing for high school dances and weddings. In college at Penn State University Istarted playing jazz and performed with The Jazz Spokesmen who later appeared at The Villanova Jazz Festival. After a short diversion as a chemical engineer, I started playing piano bars in New York City while also playing with a variety of rock ‘n roll and blues bands. Have many stories of how I came this close to “making it” but, alas, I was lucky enough not to connect.

In the early 70’s I traveled to Europe and the Canary Islands performing in London, Paris, and the Canaries before coming back to the states and taking on Hollywood. Again, piano bars were his main endeavor but he also started writing and wrote music and lyrics for the musical comedy “Shrink” that was produced at the Matrix Theater. He also provided the live soundtrack for a mime troupe, Mad Mountain Mime, who opened for Blood Sweat and Tears during a 6 month tour from Las Vegas to the East Coast.

I eventually wound up in Santa Cruz, California where I performed at Clint Eastwood’s Mission Ranch in Carmel for over 10 years. It is there I perfected the piano bar experience and learned how to turn every night into a party.

Now, being the gypsy that I am, I eventually returned to New York City in 2015 and started performing here, there and everywhere on piano, steel drum, melodica and Hammond organ.

I have also played more than my share of "fancy" restaurants for dinner music and has developed a simple, effective style in presenting a song in a melodic and rhythmic fashion without being too dynamic or intense. It turns out that this style is particularly effective in creating a calming atmosphere in care giving situations. After recording these songs and seeing the results on long-term care residents with continuous exposure, I developed the Piano Magic and Musical Memories Series that can be used to improve conditions in all facilities and home care situations. This music also works well combined with pretty images and I created videos using the piano sounds and the images. These are available for free on youtube and can provide hours of pleasant experience for anyone in a care situation with lots of time on their hands, particularly those with Alzheimer's disease.
