rolf 1

Rolf at the piano is a favourite for people who want something a bit different and quirky, along with great piano music! 

He is often to be found busking in the North Laines of Brighton…here’s a vid taken by a passer by http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZvWosTr8T_A&sns=em

You can listen to a Rowlf playing some of his faves here;

The sight of Rolf tickling the ivories at any event gives guests an instant smile and an unforgettable encounter, which usually leads to lots of entertaining photos with a large dog…

The Rowlf costume came from the first ‘Redbull Flugtag’ in 2004- a competition to build and fly a plane into the Serpentine from a 6m high runway! The muppet-themed ‘Miss Piggy’ flew to victory in front of 150,000 people, and the Rowlf suit continues to entertain… Masterminded by Tim Simpson (Gonzo) of www.plungeproductions.com.
