Pianist George Foley's virtuosity, warmth and humor have endeared him to audiences for over thirty years. His wide-ranging repertoire includes jazz, rags and other gems from the ragtime era, standards from the teens, 20's and 30's, swing tunes, blues, short 20th century classical pieces and occasional forays into modern jazz and movie themes. He is sometimes referred to as "Lefty" due to the power and dexterity of his "killer" left hand.

George also sings in a style reminiscent of Fats Waller, Jack Teagarden and Mildred Bailey.

George is in great demand as a soloist, with his own band and as a featured member of other bands. He appears regularly as a soloist at Nighttown, as pianist with the Mercuries and with the Night Owls, and in a duet setting with bassist Gene Epstein.

George's ability to swing and improvise contribute to the intensity and drive of his performances.
