Many know Rod Miller as the amazing Ragtime Pianist who performed in Disneyland’s “Coke Corner” on Main Street.
In the video above, Rod Miller performs at the Walt Disney Family Museum in San Francisco. And he takes a break to tell the story about how he was hired by Disneyland back in 1969.
He is retired now, but he has become one of the symbols of the Disney experience, and was one of the musicians who helped bring Ragtime Music into the spotlight.
As a child, I always looked forward to watching him amaze audiences who passed by only to stop and listen for awhile; a happy diversion from the rides.
Also check out a rendition of this amazing ragtime piece, by yours truly.
