CHICAGO'S BEST KEPT SECRET! DISCOVER THE DIFFERENCE..EXPERIENCE THE PASSION: by an extremely gifted pianist that can perform jazz & pop standards of the 40's thru 80's; as well as semi-classical works for clientele who expect to see and hear a performance that sounds like a ticket attraction to New York's Carnegie Hall and not like a bargain priced student level piano lesson recital. Heavily influenced by such legends as McCoy Tyner on jazz piano and Sergei Rachmaninoff from the late classical romantic period Boise Queen has managed to reflect the techniques of these two piano giants into his own self-styled rhythm and phrasing that leaves most audiences in awe when applied to works by Duke Ellington, Sammy Kahn or to songs often sung by Frank Sinatra, Nat (King) Cole or Debbie Reynolds.
Boise Queen is certainly no stranger to the Chicago circuit. He has performed with such legends as Milt Trenier and the late Billy Gardener Trio. He once opened for the famed "Cloris Leachman"in an awards dinner tribute sponsored by American Airlines and has been highly recommended as featured performing artist at a wealth of private special events, award dinner ceremonies,fundraisers and holiday festivities throughout the midwest for the past 30 years. Its for this reason that if one were to weigh in the "quality" inherent in Boise's playing alongside the "value" in acquiring this form of art for their next event; one can easily walk away knowing that they've acquired the best of both worlds, from a pair of hands that can do a lot more than just play a song.
