Pianist George Foley's virtuosity, warmth and humor have endeared him to audiences for over thirty years. His wide-ranging repertoire includes jazz, rags and other gems from the ragtime era, standards from the teens, 20's and 30's, swing tunes, blues, short 20th century classical pieces and occasional forays into modern jazz and movie themes. George also sings in a style reminiscent of Fats Waller, Jack Teagarden and Mildred Bailey.
George's ability to swing and improvise contribute to the intensity and drive of his performances. Audiences never fail to have a good time!
