Since 1986, George has worked with a local food bank in every tour market to hold a CANNED FOOD DRIVE at the show. George has been raising money for food banks and service organizations for over 21 years, and will continue to do so with the continuation of his U.S. touring this year. Additionally, he donates 100% of his merchandise sales to the organizations. The food bank at this show is TBA.
In February of 2010, George released a new solo piano album, Love Will Come-The Music of Vince Guaraldi Vol 2, a collection of a wide range of Guaraldi interpretations. The 16-song album is available on Sony Records.
George is best known for his seasonally themed recordings including Autumn, December, Winter Into Spring, and Summeras well as Linus & Lucy-The Music of Vince Guaraldi and Night Divides the Day-The Music of the Doors.
George has performed over 4,000 shows, which include renditions of his most beloved solo piano works in the three styles he uses: melodic folk piano, New Orleans R&B piano, and stride piano. He also plays some of the late Vince Guaraldi’s Peanutssoundtrack pieces as well as performances on harmonica and Hawaiian slack key guitar, the name for the beautiful solo finger-style guitar tradition, unique to Hawaii, which began in the early 1800’s.
The piano music George is working on is about two-thirds New Orleans R&B oriented, and about one-third melodic music played in his folk piano style. He is also working on solo guitar and is recording the masters of the Hawaiian slack key guitar for an extensive series of albums for Dancing Cat Records.
