Jon Abrams at The Red Piano
Piano bar entertainer Jon Abrams will be performing April 19 through May 31 at The Red Piano, located at the Simpson Bay Resort & Marina in St. Maarten.
The 28-year-old Abrams was an elementary school teacher in Massachusetts for two years after graduating college, but also played in a Billy Joel tribute band on the side. Word got to producers of Twyla Tharpe’s Tony Award winning hit Broadway musical “Movin’ Out.” Abrams was called in to audition portraying piano man Billy Joel, and three weeks later he was hired for the role as the piano man in the touring show performing throughout the United States and Canada.
More recently, Abrams had been living in Las Vegas, where he was a regular performer at The Salute Lounge, the dueling piano bar of The Palazzo.
“My mom made me take piano when I was 6. I wanted to play the drums,” says Abrams. “Thank God she did that.”
Catch his act Mondays through Saturdays beginning at 8 p.m.
