Warren Carr has other posts on this blog. Please use the search facility at top left to locate them.

Wazza was born in Newcastle NSW (according to one of my sources) and spent most of his life at the piano.
Warren played with John Konrad's Kaydets (1960) and in Johnny O'Keefe's backing band. Warren made many recordings for the Leedon label from 1961 to 1964, they are mostly in what has been described as "honky tonk" style. He went from backing and session work, to early appearances on Bandstand and Six O'Clock Rock, then to a long running gig on ABC TV Playschool as "Mr Music". His sons Darren and Mark have careers in country music nowadays. Warren's wife was also a performer.

Albums include:

"Li'l' Ole Me & My Piano"
"Party Time Piano"

"50 Years of Evergreens"
"36 Hollywood Hits"
"Warren Carr Plays Twin Honky Tonk Pianos"
"40 All Time Honky Tonk Hits"

E.P.s include:

"Li'l' Ole Mr Sunshine" 1961
"Warren Carr Plays Johnny O'Keefe" 1961
"Warren Carr Plays Rondo" 1962
"Toy Piano" 1963

Singles include:
