“There is a time for everything…” by Pure-Piano

“Hi Josh, My Mom passed away on Saturday, just 9 days after you had played for her as she looked out at the view of the bay she had grown to know and love the best. Your music for her was one of the very last enjoyable times she had, and I just wanted you to know that. Thanks for making that time for her, despite the fact that you were scheduled elsewhere that evening and for sharing your wonderful gift of music. We are all forever grateful to you for making Mom’s performance so memorable and joyful!” 

Back story: About a month ago, I received a call from a wonderful lady all the way from MA. She asked me if I would play for her 88 year old Mom behind her condo overlooking the bay on Park Shore Blvd as a Mother’s Day surprise. Although I already had an evening engagement, I was more than delighted to make this happen. And I am so glad I did. You see, Mom had COPD and dementia onset and unless I could arrive to play where she lived, she would never be able to leave her home to come and hear me or any entertainer for that matter due to her failing health.  I will never forget this beautiful woman sitting and smiling and tapping her hands and feet to some of her favourite tunes from years past. Her heart was singing and the gleam in her eyes told the whole story. For that short 2 hours, she forgot about her troubles and soared on top of my musical landscape filled with some of her favourite songs and sounds. It was not long after that memorable musical gift that I received the email that started this post.

“I cannot stress how wonderful it was to hire Josh Isenberg for my parents 50th wedding anniversary. As a surprise we had Josh come into our home and perform while we had a casual home cooked dinner.

Naples Pianist Isenberg is, “Wonderful… Stellar… Memorable!”

Wonderful... Stellar...  Memorable...
Wonderful… Stellar…
Memorable…

With my parents living in a gated community I was concerned about not ruining the surprise and timing had to be perfect. Josh was beyond flexible and helped me plan the perfect anniversary surprise for a month in advance. Not only did he learn all of the special songs that we requested but his performance was on a grand scale that literally brought tears to the room. With myself being a musician, I was prepared to tolerate a hired gun to “phone it in”, but Josh did an
immaculate job with my personal highlight being his rendition of “Take Five”…Not an easy piece and definitely not dial toned. In addition to his fantastic playing, his easy going persona melded right with my family and their friends, making him seem like “one of us”. Josh’s prompt arrival, pleasant manner and stellar performance will go down in mine and my parents lives as one of the most memorable nights ever.”

Backstory:  “Brian was searching for a pianist in Naples, FL and immediately called me from his home in NY, NY. He shared a logistically challenging albeit touching plan to surprise his mom and dad for the occasion of their 50th anniversary in their condo here in Naples. While he and his wife prepare the meal for Mom and Dad,  at some predetermined time, I would ring the doorbell and in I come to set up my piano and all accoutrements in the living room for an intimate celebration with Pure-Piano providing 2 to 3 hours of live piano entertainment for the evening just 10 feet from the dinner table.  Having done many of these through the years, I jumped at the chance to be involved in this memorable event. What follows is the “thank you” I received from Brian and his family.”
