A world-renowned pianist is pulling up a bench in Port Moody this week.

Doc Fingers has been tapped to perform for local residents at the Royal Canadian Legion Club 119 on Friday (May 27) as part of a celebration of live music's return to the branch.

He's one of the original members of the Vancouver blues jazz scene.

Fingers is known for his "eclectic" mix of blues jazz with pop music, originals and a little bit of that boogie-woogie flare.

"The Doctor has treated crowds of parties from the snow peaks of British Columbia and the Swiss Alps to smokey jazz bars in Paris, France, from Hawaii to Keffalonia, Greece, and many places in between," reads the musician's bio on his website.

"In his own words, DOC plays 'a little bit of everything and a whole lot of nothing.'"

Over his career, Fingers has played with the likes of Chuck Berry, John Lee Hooker, David Gilmour and Ian Pace.

He's also an official pianist for the International Olympic Committee (IOC), performing for athletes and private delegates at five past Olympics (1994, 1996, 1998, 2000, 2014).

Fingers is playing at the Port Moody Legion Friday at 7:30 p.m.

Tickets are $5 each, which is part of a cover charge, and can be reserved in advance by calling  604-492-1840.

For more information, you're encouraged to contact the Port Moody Legion directly.
