Most everyone in Essex and surrounding had heard of Piotr or at least heard him working his magic on the Barn Door Taverns piano. He learned to play by watching a player piano spin its musical sheets. He grew up surrounded by musicians--in particular his step dad Russ Bailey - who is 1/2 of the famous 'Bailey Brothers' duo. They clearly passed their musical genius down to Piotr-- we often refer to Piotr as Essex child piano prodigy.
Butch set up the lighting and sound system for Essex Theatre decades ago. HE MUST KNOW what he's doing because the original infrastructre has lasted over 35 years. He's dedicated to his craft and to the Theatre and we are grateful to have someone with his experience to rely on year after year. Butch is a member of the Masons (who own the building) and is also on the board of the Essex Theatre. He's played in integral role connecting the Essex Theatre with the Masons on a wide range of projects currently under way, and continuing into the coming years.
