Sony Hall Announces Phish NYC Late Night with Nels Cline, Billy Martin, Skerik, MonoNeon
Saxophonics pioneer Skerik is teaming up with genre-defying guitarist and longtime Wilco member Nels Cline, prolific Medeski Martin & Wood drummer Billy Martin, and enigmatic bassist and former member of Prince's band, MonoNeon, for a very special post-Phish late-night show in New York City. The show will take place at the relatively new Times Square venue, Sony Hall, immediately following Phish's performance at Madison Square Garden on Saturday, December 29th.
While these players collaborate with each other frequently, this show will be the first-ever performance featuring this exact lineup, and the first time that Mononeon and Nels Cline have ever performed together. All four players are seasoned improvisers that approach their respective instruments with unbridled creativity and passion. This band will surely provide an unreal late-night atmosphere, with a mix of funk, jazz, rock, and tons of ambitious improvisation.
The new Sony Hall is primed to become a major venue in the New York City market, and will certainly be a trusted location for late night shows for years to come due to its proximity to Madison Square Garden. Sony Hall is also the venue for the previously announced late night show with Ghost Light, taking place on Sunday, December 30th.
