‚Äč

On Saturday, December 10, 2011, David Ippolito took to the stage at Merkin Hall in his annual "That Guitar Man from Central Park," an evening of music and stories.

David Ippolito, on guitar and vocals, was joined by George Wurzbach (piano, vocals), Ryan Cavan (drums, vocals), Teresa Reynolds (vocals), David Marcus (vocals), Nelson Montana (bass, vocals),
and Chris Tedesco (fiddle, mandolin, vocals).

Ippolito has self-released eight albums and is best known for his weekly summer performances in Central Park, which are attended by thousands of people inspiring his title, "That Guitar Man from Central Park." Ippolito sings covers by James Taylor, the Beatles, Bob Dylan, Harry Chapin, Paul Simon, Tom Petty, Jason Mraz, Matt Nathanson, and more, in addition to his own original tunes. Ippolito also performs at venues throughout New York City in addition to Central Park, including his annual December performance at Merkin Concert Hall, as well as year-round shows at the Leonard Nimoy Thalia, Symphony Space, The Red Lion on Bleecker Street, and Jim Caruso's Cast Party, held at the famous Birdland Music Club.

Saturday's concert was filmed by Emmy Award filmmaker Dean Love for an Ippolito-inspired documentary.
