This monthly music series is being introduced and hosted by Horsetrade productions and music event producer Salli Squitieri bringing both up and coming and renowned performing artists of all genres from near and far to these two historically rich funky chic unique east village flavored theatres.

With so many of the smaller venues disappearing this series not only helps to fill a void by creating a new forum for musicians, but likewise offers the regional clientele the experience of an off the beaten path, nostalgic and intimate music sojourn. Many of the performers who are eager to be part of this series and help kick start it are specifically customizing their shows and designing performances just for this series.

The first presentation was a sold out show featuring New York Blues Hall of Fame Inductee Singer/Songwriter Marc Black-Life One Song at a time taking the audience footstep by foot step Marc's life via song presentation, New York Blues Hall of Fame inductee singer/ songwriter Marc Black , will be performing his collection of new and old classic songs in his new engaging one man show , "LIFE...ONE SONG AT A TIME", an all American, rollicking confessional Marc has performed and recorded with many luminaries including Art Garfunkel, Rick Danko, Richie Havens, Taj Mahal and Pete Seeger.
