Sofia's Downstairs Theatre and it's sister restaurant on West 46th Street--the site where the Luca Brasi murder scene was filmed for The Godfather--may now sleep with the fishes, but Vince Giordano and the Nighthawks, who for the past five years and more than 500 shows have been playing at the venue and keeping alive the big band music of the jazz and swing eras of the 1920s, will be swimming upstream to a new home at the Iguana Restaurant on 54th Street (between Broadway and 8th Avenue). Giordano was forced to move when earlier this summer The Hotel Edison decided not to renew Sofia Restaurant's lease (after jacking up the rent exponentially). The Nighthawks, who played at Sofia's downstairs club every Monday and Tuesday nights from 8 to 11pm, will have the same weekly performance schedule at Iguana beginning on September 9. The cover will be $15 with a $20 food/drink minimum.

Have you ever wondered why some people advance in their careers with sustained movement while you seem to be swimming upstream? Or why some deals reach 'the event' and some fade off into the distance? In his book, Relationship Momentum: The Secret to Making Ideas Move entrepreneur and business owner, Brian Church grapples with the art and science of why some ideas progress and some dissipate. In his search, he stumbled upon a formula, an equation rather, for the secret of success backed by historical research and the study of his personal successes and failures. It may surprise the reader to learn that, according to Church, that success has little to do with natural ability, personality type, business environment or unique giftings. Rather, the key to success - the secret to making your ideas move - hinges upon one thing: 'Relationship Momentum.'
