Sam started playing piano at 7 years of age. As a teen, he helped a friend of his repair and rebuild player pianos, which quickly brought him to the world of stride piano and piano player Fats Waller among others. Today he both plays and restores pianos. Sam played piano at the original DejaVu Tavern on Lincoln Avenue for several years at the Sunday night jazz jam sessions.
