The Gasparilla Inn and Club in Boca grande is wonderful for that special occasion. Here are just a few of the highlights that the dining room has to offer:

  • Great food by master chefs
  • Great service and wonderful decor
  • A newly rebuilt vintage Steinway grand piano
  • The Steinway is played by David Ohrenstein

David is particularly excited about playing this year. Famed piano technician Larry Keckler from Sarasota Florida was called to recondition and fine tune the dining room Steinway.  It dates back to the early 1920’s. Mr. Keckler loves this Steinway. He told me that after he worked on it, he is bowled over by its incredibly sweet and  beautiful tone. I can’t wait. My piano playing is all about melody and singing tone.


This year David’s contract in Boca Grande spans approximately four months. He plays six nights a week. The timing corresponds with the peak busy season in Florida. He has also worked as the pianist at Scott’s Oquaga Lake House in upstate New York.  For some 15 years his contracts were for almost five months at the time. Most often, in New York he worked seven days a week. He and his singer-actress wife Sharon would also perform two featured shows weekly. So many say there is little work for musicians. On the contrary, David knows musicians can pick and choose. He offers piano lessons in Sarasota for aspiring students.  Meanwhile, see you at the Inn! Yes, I take requests. Sample of David’s playing below:
