New favorite neighborhood resident: oldies/torch song player on Park Road

There are a few neighborhood characters in our area: the "Music Man" with the boombox on his bike, for example. But I think I found my new favorite resident: whoever plays the torch songs and oldies on Park Road between Holmead and 13th.

A few times I've walked by the evening and there's a speaker playing old standards, jazz, torch songs and the like, and it's pretty awesome to hear walking around. Once I saw local musician (and Grammy-nominee) Christylez Bacon hanging out there, so it might be his place (or his musical choice) but I'm not sure.

Anyone else hear and enjoy his music? Always like hearing music around the neighborhood.

Every time I see the "Music Man" it brightens my day. It is so pleasant, in times like these with such (perceived) turmoil in the news, to encounter such lightheartedness.
