Our senior center loved Walt's show! He is such a personable guy, who was able to really connect with the audience. We had him come out as Santa one time, then the next time he came to do a regular piano and singing performance. Both were a huge hit!
Response from Walt Frasier, Piano Singer:
Thanks, Emily. Both gigs were a lot of fun. Mom is from Brooklyn so I love every chance to get back there!!!
