Main Street pianist performs 'Grim Grinning Ghosts'
Musician Alan Thompson Jr., currently at the ripe ol' age of 29, has already earned the John Philip Sousa Award and a Marine Corps Award for marching band performances - but while marching at Disneyland as a teen, he became enthralled with the Main Street pianists. Studying with some of them, he became an accomplished ragtime pianist and was hired by Disneyland to perform when he was barely 20 years old.
Thompson continued as a Main Street pianist at Disneyland until 2006. He has since gone on to follow other pursuits, but has allowed DoomBuggies to publish a special live recording of one of his performances of Buddy Baker's "Grim Grinning Ghosts."
