The Piano Van on the Streets of LA

Posted by The Bay Area Crew, May 20, 2013 06:16pm | Post a Comment

Bay Area transplant Chris Stroffolino is a former Silver Jews member, a Ph.D.-holding Shakespearean scholar, published chris stroffolino piano vanauthor of eight books of poetry, AND a one-time Amoeba Music Home Grown Artist of the Month. Now in Los Angeles, Stroffolino and his rescued, upright piano reside and perform in his 1980’s Ford Econoline van. The van serves as his part-time stage, rehearsal space, recording studio, and full-time living quarters. A prolific singer/songwriter, a chalkboard paint-covered sliding van door announces his influences: Indie, Punk, Brill Building, Motown, and Velvets.

This guy is the real deal and he's mobile. You can catch him playing wherever the van takes him -- Griffith Park, outside a Trader Joe's, in parking lots of music venues -- but we suggest following him on Twitter at @Piano_Van to get updates on his next coordinates.

Jeff Feuerzeig, the director of the documentary The Devil and Daniel Johnston, is recording a series of videos with Stroffolino. Here's the latest, his infectious interpretation of Toby Keith's "I'm Just Talkin' About Tonight."
