Hello world, my name is Mo,
I’m the cutie on top of the piano, together with my partner: Piano Man Danny Kean. Other dogs would call him owner, well not me…
I know what Danny’s like as a partner; he’s my buddy as much as I’m his! To other humans, he must be a very friendly person, given the thousands of people that he’s welcomed to play our piano over the years. Without exception, all those people stepping onto our truck showed clear signs – remember I’m half Beagle, I’m a sensitive dog – of curiosity, friendliness and joy. Worth saying, they’ve all be kind to me, petting, hugging me and calling me by name. Our new friends have been filming Boner and me in more US-States and from more different angles than Boomer and Lassie together, I might humbly add…
Now back to our mission! Our journey took us from original base Philadelphia, Pennsylvania to Mexico and from post-Katrina New Orleans to Alaska. Having said that, we’ve been called out by local friends more than just once after tragic happenings (school shootings, hurricanes) and celebrations. Most of the times though, we paid unannounced visits to countless Counties and Villages to meet, invite and inspire new communities. Once back in our current base Las Vegas, Nevada, we are mostly working the streets through community outreach in the poorest of neighborhoods to lift spirits and to give attention and care to those that need it most. As Danny puts it:
“the Flight of Peregrinating Musical Exploration, using spontaneity and synchronicity to create music for people to discover, with musical empowerment and inspiration and, without commercial, organizational or political affiliation. The vehicle is called the Traveling Piano.”
We’ve been fortunate enough to meet Danny, Mo and dozens of bystanders being welcomed to play the Traveling Piano in our presence. Be so kind – as we did – to support their journey with a small financial contribution. Follow their daily blog and who knows you’ll experience the pleasure they bring to the world, in person.
Stay safe, enjoy playing!
