Andre Montgomery is a singer & actor and well known in the piano bars of NYC. He worked at the old Duplex (on Grove Street) as a lighting tech and a singing waiter/bartender. Erv Raible (then owner of The Duplex) convinced me to do cabaret shows. I worked with several talented music directors (Mark Christopher, Glenn Kelly, Gerry Deiffeinbach and David Pearl) with most shows directed by Gerry Geddes. Besides shows at The Duplex, I also did shows at Don't Tell Mama, Joe's Pub, The Ballroom and Eighty Eights, just to name a few.
