Larry Lee Lewis, multi-faceted pianist, musician, comedian, and
>> actor stood in front of the Capers and proudly boomed that he had
>> just become the proud father of a nine pound baby boy, a bouncing
>> one, of course. The amazement and pride and joy of the audience
>> turned to guffaws as he then said, "If my wife finds out, she’ll
>> kill me!" And that’s how it continued for better than an hour,
>> interspersing jokes with piano-accompanied songs.
>> Mr. Lewis is a middle-aged business man who shifted gears five
>> years ago from the 9-5 life to show business. His songs included
>> those by Fats Domino (still living), "Blueberry Hill", "My Blue
>> Heaven"; "Harbor Lights" by Sammy Kaye, Elvis’ "Blue Suede Shoes"
>> which was cleverly mixed in with "In the Mood" and on with that
>> uplifting "What A Wonderful World" by Louis Armstrong, all joyful
>> The Mashpee Senior Center, again was filled to the brim and the
>> enjoyment was palpable. Mr. Lewis played songs that made sense,
>> told of true feelings and brought back so many incidents in our
>> lives. Amazingly, no matter the age of the songs, they are so
>> imbedded in our minds that we could precisely follow the words and
>> enjoy hearing them again. Once more the phrase was repeated by both
>> the performer and the listeners, "They just don’t write them like
>> that any more".
