The Wednesday Word: Joy and Michael Kevin Walsh

Michael Kevin Walsh, (pianist, singer, actor, recording engineer, coach), is the creator and proprietor of The Smooth Spot digital recording studio in New York City and leads The Smooth Spot Jazz Trio. He enjoys hosting musical soirées, as well as providing musical entertainment for private functions, benefit concerts, night clubs, cruise ships and resorts. In the musical theatre, Michael has performed numerous leading roles including Billy Bigelow in Carousel, Fred Graham in Kiss Me Kate, and Chuck Baxter in Promises, Promises. There was a time when you could see him tinkling the ivories, singing and harmonizing with the staff and guest singers weekly at Sam’s Restaurant, the oldest theatre bar in NYC. He travels the world as part of the very entertaining vocal quartet, The New York Vagabonds. Michael has entertained at upscale venues throughout the country and Europe including The Grandhotel Giessbach in Switzerland and The Greenbrier Resort in West Virginia. In NYC, he has performed at The 21 Club, The Firebird Café, The Carnegie Club, Swing 46, Blue Fin, Chicago Blues, The Bitter End, The Triad and Merchant’s. Visit his website: www.thesmoothspot.com. This handsome, talented man stepped for last year’s Carole King tribute and Lifebeat fundraiser as one of the New York Vagabonds and harmonizing with Missy Keene and Ken Lundie. Working with him is pure musical joy. Come on out to The Stonewall Inn on April 28 to see him work his magic on the keyboards and sing his heart out—7 to 9pm upstairs in the cabaret.

(Thank you, Mike Salinari)
