It's been way to long since I've been to Hedo, so I'm out of date on who's playing in the Piano bar.

I've heard a rumor that Dion broke up with Stephanie [sp?]. True?

I also heard a rumor that Dion was no longer there. True?

Respect.

Our last trip, April 2019, Dion had been replaced. He apparently had heart issues and was released. Stephanie was still performing with the new piano player. The new guy I believe was a member of the stage group. He was still learning the ropes back then, and the piano bar wasn't the same as when Dion was there, which wasn't as good as the piano player that preceded him.

No Stephane or Dion. The pianist since last year is (Rasta) David - he's excellent and very talented if left to his own devices. He also manages to simultaneously play the trumpet on some pieces. Come on down!

Is Rasta David playing an electronic keyboard (aka loud) or the piano (aka normal level of sound so people can sing along)?

Are there groups of people singing again these days...like 20 years+ ago? Or still just really good or really bad singers individually? Does David sing? Does he do "name that tune" game stuff? Can he play Bo-Rap?

Chris...during our visit in early Jan/20, I recall David playing the electric piano and the volume level was fine. I sang a couple of times during our seven nights. Of course my recollection of events, are well seasoned. As always...your mileage may vary....;-)

Chris, The real piano is so out of tune that Dave doesn't play it and uses his keyboard instead. As soon an the bar fills up and/or gets loud I grab a cigar and sit on the smoking deck behind the piano and listen outside. I have no idea what games he plays.

Chris (and others),

Lenworth was working at Couples Sweptaway.

Check whether he is still there, and if so, what nights he works.

Then you'll have to spring for a night pass there to enjoy him.

We did that one time a few years back, and he still remembered me. Amazing!

And he was playing guys vs girls on the Name That Tune game that night. It brought back good memories.

Respect.

I'm with Chris and many other old farts. No one has ever come close to the fun and wonderful music of Lenworth in the piano bar. I have been threatening to spend an evening at Couples for years to just see him preform again. Chris, I am certain he will remember us!

I agree. Lenworth hasn't been beat by any of his successors in my opinion.

When did Lenworth depart from H2
I remember our first visit to the piano bar was terrific, just want to know if it was him that set the standard I remember.

I don't remember the year, but Lenworth went by a stage name of "Ultimate" which you might remember.

Dave the Pianist came in the late 1990s to replace Lenworth Brown (aka Chocolate Ultimate) who was gone from Hedo by 1997.... my understanding is that the smoke from cigarettes became so bad his eyes suffered...and likely the wage was not as high as he wanted. He's worth it...Julliard trained (unless I was told wrong).

I recall Lenworth introducing himself as the "Ultimate Man" and he often wore a hat that read "Ultimate" across the forehead area. I really enjoyed my evenings with him as he saw that Hedo was not necessarily a swinger resort but an exotic resort for adults.
