Celebrity Restaurant’s Longtime ‘Piano Man’ Grateful For 30 Years Of Music, Memories

After serving Tulsans for nearly 60 years, Celebrity Restaurant is closing Saturday. That made Friday night’s performance extra special for the restaurant’s longtime pianist Mark Bryan.

Music has never been about the money or the fame for Bryan. In all his 30 years at the restaurant, it’s always been about a feeling – one he hopes won’t be gone for long.

“Music for me is just a way to connect with people,” Bryan said. “What really counts in life is love of people, and I have met the most wonderful people here.”

Gamble & Huff mark 50 years of Philly Soul and socially conscious music

By the early 1970s, Kenny Gamble and Leon Huff were regularly meeting in Gamble’s office by an upright piano with a list of titles and a tape recorder to talk about the news or what was happening throughout Philadelphia. Their chemistry as songwriters and producers, combined with those frequent chats, laid the foundation for some of popular music’s most memorable, socially conscious songs to date.

‘I see people ageing – I don’t always see us’: one family, 30 years, 30 photographs | Family

In the summer of 1991, photographer Zed Nelson, then 25, invited a couple of new parents he was acquainted with to visit his London studio. Oh, and bring your baby, he said.
