So Bill Smith, a great jazz piano player was opening up with the Steve Watson Trio at the Hotel Indigo in Riverhead for the first weekend of Winterfest on Long Island’s East End. A terrible snowstorm hit and the gig was canceled. Bill happened to be at the hotel anyway so he sat down at the piano and played a few notes to see how the piano sounded. A few people in the lobby stopped to listen and smiled so Bill decided to finish the tune. One of the day managers of the hotel came over to Bill and said, “Excuse me, this piano is for professionals only. ” Bill said “excuse me”, stopped playing and left.
