Mandavi wrote about the importance of the cause on his instagram: “As an immigrant and the child of immigrants I want to raise as much money and as many voices as we possibly can to support the work of the ACLU and the IRC as they fight for the rights of immigrants and refugees.”

Between laughs (including one of Questlove’s Prince stories) and songs (capped by Riz’s poignant piece about stereotypes), the room was filled with solidarity and good spirits. By the time Mandavi declared his call to action for involvement and support, the crowd was ready to join him in the fight.

Thank you to everyone who joined us for this important night and helped raise $100,000 for the ACLU and IRC!

Teddy Thompson Cellar Session and 5.7 Show with Jenni Muldaur!

FINAL Cellar Session

In 2014, singer-songwriter Teddy Thompson stopped by City Winery to perform an intimate set, including his songs “No Way To Be” and “Delilah”. Since then, Thompson’s approach has changed: on previous albums, he always relied on one of the songs he’s written to provide him with an album title and a central concept to build the rest of his work around.

This time it’s different: you won’t find a tune named “Bella” on his fourth Verve Forecast effort yet the idea of “bella” — Italian shorthand for “beautiful” — is everywhere. Recorded in New York City, his latest work combines lean rock and roll with lush string arrangements on material that is both disarmingly catchy and often startlingly frank. See him perform his latest songs with Jenni Muldaur on 5.7!

Tickets available here!
