The Piano Bar is that special place where we can gather, entertain, support and create as we connect with live music.

Amanda Brasher is thrilled to be back at PBL! She has been a soloist with Keith Lockhart and the Boston Pops, the West Virginia Symphony Orchestra, the Syracuse Symphony and Symphoria!, with programs ranging from classic Broadway to Holiday pops. In the jazz idiom, in NYC, she has appeared with Alex Nguyen and The Jazz Conceptions Orchestra as well as with Ben Stapp. Favorite theater roles include Maria in the Sound of Music (Capitol Rep ) and Laura in Swing! (Carousel Theater). Brasher has a BFA in musical theater from The Boston Conservatory and is a proud member of Actor's Equity.

Chris Dilley has shared stages with such artists as Sting, Jennifer Lopez, Patti LuPone, Hugh Jackman and Lorna Luft. He sings with the Tony Award-winning Broadway Inspirational Voices. He teaches Private Voice at NYU as well as through his own vocal studio.

Antonio Edwards is originally from St. Louis, MO and now resides in Wilton Manors, FL. After many years working in corporate America and customer service, Edwards decided to move to New York City to pursue singing as a career. He worked as a singing waiter at a famous midtown eatery for over 10 years as well as working as a contract musician. After visiting many times, he decided to make the move to south Florida to again pursue singing full-time in paradise. He currently works as the Music Director for the Center for Spiritual Living in Fort Lauderdale and is also the lead vocalist. You can catch him at Georgie's Alibi in Wilton Manors every Wednesday on the main stage at 9:00 pm.

Cool Jay and Savion Glover and Dionne in Hair in the Encore series. Her favorite Regional credits include Lorrell in Dream Girls starring Jennifer Holiday at The Fox Theater, Amunt in Jasper in Deadland at The 5Th Avenue and Apollo Singer in The Buddy Holly Story.

Ménage a Trois are Lacey Angerosa, Nyseli Vega and Bianca Madison. Angerosa has performed regionally and in New York theater, including "Patti" in Smokey Joe's Cafe and "Mimi" in Rent. Vega has appeared Off-Broadway in iLLa: A Hip Hop Musical and in Orange is the New Black. Madison has performed professionally throughout the U.S., was seen as "Nora" in HBO's Vinyl and has appeared onstage in The Life and In The Heights. The three forged a friendship working as part of the singing waitstaff at a popular eatery in the Times Square area. Not only were they proud feminists, but they also had strong ties to the LGBTQ community. Soon, Ménage a Trois was born.
