Erv Raible, Founder of Cabaret & Concert Artists International, Passes Away

Founder and Executive Director of Cabaret & Concert Artists International Erv Raible has passed away after a long illness. He was 68.

On the organization's website, John Hoglund writes: "Cabaret impresario Erv Raible, 68, died on Wednesday, February 19 at Lenox Hill Hospital after a long illness. Funeral and memorial arrangements are pending and will be announced.

"For many years, Erv Raible played a prominent role in the cabaret and nightclub scene in Manhattan. He owned four of New York's most popular and legendary cabarets and piano bars including: The Duplex (1978-1984) , Brandy's Piano Bar (1980-1985), Don't Tell Mama (1982-1989) and was also an owner and booking manager of Eighty Eight's from 1988 to 1999.

"Erv was colorful, controversial, mercurial. intelligent - and caring. A natural teacher, the thing that made him happiest was nurturing those who wanted to learn. A very sad loss of a great man for cabaret."
