Paul Orsi - Mission Viejo, Ca

Paul Orsi

A ragtime aficionado since “The Sting” ragtime revival in the 1970s, Paul Orsi became a member of the Maple Leaf Club in Los Angeles as a youngster. He began performing ragtime piano professionally at age 13 in pizza parlors in and around Los Angeles and has performed his high-energy ragtime style in a variety of restaurants and venues throughout Southern California. In 1983, Paul joined the elite group of Disneyland pianists at Coke Corner, where he performed for 10 years. In addition to his active performance schedule throughout the ’80s and ’90s, Paul composed piano rags, recorded piano rolls and produced a solo CD. This year, after a 25-year hiatus from ragtime music, Paul is making a comeback on the ragtime scene, with more energy and pizzazz than ever.
