Mary Chapin Carpenter & Melissa Etheridge
We finally had the opportunity to bring Melissa and Mary Chapin to the room in a special co-bill performance last January. Definitely one for the books. Hope to have them both back for headline plays very soon.
Marc Roberge (of OAR)
The lead vocalist of American rock band OAR performed a two intimate sets in our room earlier this year. Emotions were through the roof as Roberge performed solo acoustic sets. The show was a real tear jerker according to Instagram. We can’t wait to have him back next year!
An intimate night with Allen Stone performing his favorite tunes that date back to his early career as a troubadour of sorts, playing coffee shops and traveling telling stories. Great energy filled the room for both the early and late shows and was a notable highlight of 2016.
Grammy Award winning artist Patty Griffin delivered two incredible, sold out shows over Halloween this year. Joining her on stage was Joan Shelley and together these two amazing talents captivated a packed room each evening.
One of America’s finest female singer/songwriters Lucinda Williams released her 12th studio album earlier this year and we had the honor of hosting her for five nights in support of The Ghosts of Highway 20. This album is a follow-up to her 2014 effort, Down Where The Spirit Meets The Bone; her first ever double studio album which was jam-packed with her own original material.
Amanda Palmer & Jherek Bischoff
It was an emotional night as Amanda Palmer & Jherek Bischoff teamed up to perform Strung Out in Heaven: A Bowie String Quartet shortly after the legend himself passed away in January this year.
The Head & The Heart (WFUV Show)
It was an incredible treat to host The Head & The Heart for an exclusive WFUV & VinoFile underplay show last September. The band covered songs from their latest album before being joined on stage by one of our favorite radio hosts, Rita Houston for an interview.
Justin Hayward (of The Moody Blues)
The Moody Blues vocalist and lead guitarist showed no signs of slowing down at the age of 68 as he performed songs from his latest album and hits of the past. Some fans may have had reservations about a stripped down version of their favorite Moody Blues songs, but Hayward managed to capture their musical complexity providing incredible depth and a provocative performance.
Skull Juice Live w/ Tina Fey, Stephen Colbert, Andy Dick & Louis CK
City Winery New York was honored to host an all-star lineup of renowned comedians last summer. Fans packed the house last August to witness a rare reading of a comedy pilot that never actually made it to the screen. This special night that had the crowd roaring the entire evening with a surprise guest appearance from Louis CK.
GZA the Genius, co-founder of one of hip hop’s most influential groups, graced our stage to perform Liquid Swords in its entirety this fall. The room was elated as he performed tracks from this 90’s classic album mixed in with Wu-Tang classics, and even payed homage to the late ODB with Shimmy Shimmy Ya, which was a crowd pleaser. The response was so great that we added a second night with another packed house.
