Personal Quote:

I'm famous for singing wild jazz tunes and playing wild rocking piano and really tearing up the joint, I was practically the first person to ever do that shit. Then came rock and roll and they all did that shit, but nobody did that stuff before me."

In 1949,'50 and '51, Harry played in and around the Miami, Miami Beach area. He drove and sometime slept in an old "wooden-body" station wagon, that were popular after the War. He was very popular with the "Hip" U. of Miami vets from WW II, who made the trip to Miami Beach nightly to catch his act. Many times he was invited out to the University area for private Fraternity parties .
