At least once and likely much more than that, a certain line will be uttered at Hightail over the next six weeks. "Six us a song, you're the piano man" will be rather a fitting thing to say, admittedly — because the Melbourne hangout is hosting a pop-up piano bar between Tuesday, July 17 and Thursday, August 23.
On Tuesday and Thursday nights across that period, Matt Ganim will tickle the ivories and play whatever you ask for — including the Billy Joel track you might now have stuck in your head, we're guessing. Go on, be more adventurous than that with your song selections. He really will play whatever you wish, even if it's an old piano classic or your favourite pop track.
Singing along is both encouraged and expected. That's one of the joys of piano bars, after all. Plus, if you gather the gang, get organised and book a booth for four people in advance, you'll get something extra — a free beverage on arrival.
