Dale Storr

New Orleans Piano Show

En: Dale Storr's musical journey has taken him from his rural Lincolnshire upbringing to his own musical mecca, New Orleans. His early musical interests were inspired by his parents' record collection of early rock'n'roll and country music. Dale's interest grew deeper when he began playing the piano at the age of six, cocking an ear to the piano-based music of Little Richard, Jerry Lee Lewis and Fats Domino.

His musical journey has seen him play with a variety of musicians, including Alan Nimmo (In the original King King line-up), the late Kevin Thorpe, 60's icon Dave Berry, American soul star Earl Thomas, Texas guitar legend Rocky Athas and US R&B giant Eugene 'Hideaway' Bridges.

The evocative music of New Orleans became a passion for the young musician, leading him to perform his debut theatre gig as a soloist. Dale's ambition has always been to play the music of New Orleans, which can be anything from a classically influenced minuet, a Latin Rhumba, a back o' town Junker Blues, to a frenzied Boogie Woogie. As seen with every Dale Storr performance, he's certainly fulfilling that ambition.
