beachplayerA California pianist, who gives performances on the beach, is getting ready to take a final bow.

The seaside Mozart uses a damaged piano that’s in such bad condition, it’s impossible to keep in tune.

But instead of giving up on it, he wheeled it down to the beach and gives concerts at sunset.

But now the city told him he needs to stop because he doesn’t have a permit.

In his final concert, he’ll be taking the piano out on a boat and set it on fire.

He said “”I’m going to be playing while it burns. So hopefully I can do the whole piece. It’s kind of saying goodbye and hello and thank you to all these people who have been around and it’s just been wonderful.”

His last show will be this Friday.
