?About The Iridium:
The Iridium and its legacy as "The Home of Les Paul" has established the audiophile venue as a musical landmark in New York City, known as a destination for intimately experiencing the best jazz, blues and rock artists in the world. Over the last 20 years, The Iridium has built up a reputation for attracting iconic instrumentalists and vocalists seven nights a week, and as a result has grown in the diversity of its music offerings as emerging songwriters seek to join in the room's rich history of music discovery. Among the superstar acts that have graced The Iridium stage are Les Paul, who played weekly at The Iridium for more than 14 years until his passing in 2009, Jeff Beck, Steve Miller, Buddy Guy, Joe Walsh, Zakk Wylde, Joe Satriani, The Rolling Stones' Mick Taylor and Charlie Watts, Max Roach, Michael Brecker, among many others. Today, in addition to its consistent draw of legendary rock guitarists and jazz and blues musicians, The Iridium regularly showcases next generation talent spanning a variety of genres including folk, indie pop, alt rock, R&B, cabaret and world music, as a host to Front and Center, public television's critically acclaimed series, and MTV Live Setlist, a new monthly music series. The "Father of the Electric Guitar," Les Paul is revered as a pioneer in electric guitars and music recording, having designed the sound system The Iridium uses to this day. This influence has led to The Iridium becoming one of the only NYC concert venues to double as a live recording studio boasting its own music label - IridiumLive. Since 2011, notable releases on the IridiumLive label have included Grammy-winning guitarist Albert Lee's 'Live At The Iridium' and 'Les Paul Trio And Friends: A Jazz Tribute to Les' featuring Les Paul's band performing with special guests Nels Cline of Wilco, jazz guitar legend Stanley Jordan, Jane Monheit, and Bucky Pizzarelli. Jeff Beck's Grammy-nominated 'Rock 'N' Roll Party Honoring Les Paul' is also among the historical recordings at The Iridium. For more information. visittheiridium.com
