Cynthia Sayer to Premiere THE BANJO SHOW at Joe's Pub, 3/7
by BWW News Desk - Feb 14, 2014

CYNTHIA SAYER, the internationally celebrated jazz banjoist, will lead her all-star quartet in 'The Banjo Show' at Joe's Pub at the Public in a rare New York City concert appearance on Friday, March 7 at 7:00 PM. The founding member of Woody Allen's jazz band, who honed her virtuoso chops playing with many legendary artists, is on a mission to popularize the 4-string banjo, the cultured cousin of the familiar 5-string bluegrass banjo. Sayer's vocals are divine and her banjo a driving force of nature - think Django Reinhardt meets Bela Fleck - as she swings her audience through the colorful story and surprising range of what the 4-string can do, including hot jazz, tango, Great American Songbook, vaudeville, classical, roots music and more. Joe's Pub at the Public located at 425 Lafayette Street in Manhattan. Tickets: $20. For more information: T: (212) 967-7555 or www.joespub.com or www.cynthiasayer.com. (more...)

VINCE GIORDANO & THE NIGHTHAWKS Move to IGUANA Restaurant After Closing of Sofia's Theatre; Opening Night on 9/9 at 8pm
by Stephen Hanks - Sep 01, 2013

Sofia's Downstairs Theatre and it's sister restaurant on West 46th Street--the site where the Luca Brasi murder scene was filmed for The Godfather--may now sleep with the fishes, but Vince Giordano and the Nighthawks, who for the past five years and more than 500 shows have been playing at the venue and keeping alive the big band music of the jazz and swing eras of the 1920s, will be swimming upstream to a new home at the Iguana Restaurant on 54th Street (between Broadway and 8th Avenue). Giordano was forced to move when earlier this summer The Hotel Edison decided not to renew Sofia Restaurant's lease (after jacking up the rent exponentially). The Nighthawks, who played at Sofia's downstairs club every Monday and Tuesday nights from 8 to 11pm, will have the same weekly performance schedule at Iguana beginning on September 9. The cover will be $15 with a $20 food/drink minimum. (more...)
