Music comes full circle for Puleo family at Tavern 27

LACONIA — Sunday, November 10 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., local Jazz pianist Michael Puleo will play at Tavern 27,  some 40 years after his father played there.

Puleo, a graduate of Belmont High School, just returned to the area after living and playing out west for the past couple of years. A former drummer with the Belmont High School Band, Puleo studied at Concord Community Music School and has been playing Jazz piano for about seven years.

"I am excited to have the opportunity to play at Tavern 27. In the early 70's, my dad would bring his electric Wurlitzer piano and play when this place was the (Aquadahtan Fireside Restaurant," states Puleo. Michael will be playing Tavern 27's George Steck grand piano that is estimated to be 130 years old.

Tavern 27 opens at 11 a.m. on Sundays and will have the full menu available as well as brunch specials for the event. Reservations are recommended, 603-528-3057. Tavern 27 is located at 2075 Parade Road, Laconia.
