Vivian Green Music Without Borders MWB

Vivian Green’s sultry voice and charismatic presence has earned her a place as one of the country’s most captivating Soul singers on the scene today. “Emotional Roller Coaster” rocketed her to stardom in 2002, and she is now celebrated regularly on all the top R&B/Hip-Hop albums charts.

Born in Philadelphia, Vivian Green was raised in a home where Motown classics were always playing. She began singing at age five, started playing piano by eight, and by eleven began writing songs. By age thirteen, her career as a professional singer was on its way.

She honed her craft at the piano every day after school, writing mature love songs far beyond her years. At fifteen she began to record at multi-platinum group Boyz II Men’s studio. At seventeen she received her first professional songwriting credit co-writing the song “Dear God” on their Platinum album Evolution.

Her mature, sultry voice and knowledge of material allowed her to sing in some of Philadelphia’s premiere Jazz clubs despite her age. Her break-through moment came at age nineteen when Vivian Green sang background for renowned Soul singer-actress Jill Scott on an international tour.

Vivian Green teamed up with Grammy Award- nominated Eric Roberson to create the demo that would win her a deal with Sony Music. The demo contained the first smash hit “Emotional Roller Coaster,” from her debut album A Love Story released in 2002. This album was certified Gold and  received rave reviews from People, Billboard, Rolling Stone, and USA Today . Her second album Vivian released in 2005 and produced “Gotta Go Gotta Leave (Tired)” a no.1 Adult Contemporary /Dance hit. The New York Times called the album a “stellar sophomore performance.”

Vivian Green has several notable features and collaborations. She made her film debut in the Oscar-nominated biopic De Lovely. She also appeared in the TV Series American Dreams, portraying Brenda Hollaway singing “Every Little Bit Hurts”. Green wrote the songs for playwright-film-maker David. E. Talbert’s stage play Love in the Nick of Thyme. She is featured on Cyndi Lauper’s album The Body Acoustic and the late Guru’s Jazzmatazz 4. She was also featured on Soundtrack to a Revolution, a compilation of spiritual songs featuring artists Anthony Hamilton, John Legend, The Roots, and Mary Mary. Most recently she collaborated with Jazz pianist Brian Culbertson for his album Dreams and produced the top 10 Adult Contemporary hit “Still Here”. The song also appeared on her 4th album The Green Room.

In 2014, she became the first artist signed to rapper/producer Kwamé‘s record label, Make Noise Recordings. Vivid, her fifth studio album was distributed via Caroline Records. In April 2015, the first single released from the album was “Get Right Back to My Baby” which climbed to #2 on Billboard’s Urban Adult Contemporary chart. She was also nominated for a Soul Train Award.

 In 2016 Vivian Green released “Grown Folks MusicWork” which went to the top 15 on Billboard’s Urban Adult Contemporary chart. And in 2017, six albums into her illustrious career the aptly titled, VGVI [Make Noise/Caroline]—pronounced veegeesix,  has earned her highest chart entry in over a decade on the Billboard Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums Chart, garnered acclaim from Vibe and YouKnowIGotSoul, and yielded  a bona fide hit in the form of “Get Right Back To My Baby.”

A Music Hall/Music Without Borders Co-presentation
The Grammy winning roots/rock group fronted by Jakob Dylan returns to the Music Hall! Though he is the son of a legend, Jakob's similarities to his father are occasional -- in fact, The Wallflowers are more influenced by Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers than original '60s folk-rock, though lyrically, Jakob remains a close companion to the original Dylan. Bringing Down the Horse was a big seller throughout 1997, thanks to "6th Avenue Heartache," "One Headlight," and "The Difference," the third single pulled from the record. Early in 1998, "One Headlight" won Grammys for Best Rock Song and Best Rock Performance by a Duo or Group With Vocal. The band has remained active throughout the years, releasing a number of critically acclaimed albums.

Enjoy an evening of thoughtful songs and plenty of familial harmonies with Grammy Award-winning American Folk singer Loudon Wainwright III and acclaimed songwriters Suzzy Roche and Lucy Wainwright Roche.

Born in Chapel Hill, North Carolina, Loudon Wainwright III came to fame when “Dead Skunk” became a Top 20 hit in 1972. He had studied acting at Carnegie-Mellon University, but dropped out to partake in the “Summer of Love” in San Francisco, and wrote his first song in 1968 (“Edgar,” about a lobsterman in Rhode Island). His songs have since been recorded by Bonnie Raitt, Johnny Cash, Earl Scruggs, Kate & Anna McGarrigle, his son Rufus Wainwright, and Mose Allison, among others.

Released in 2014, Haven’t Got the Blues (Yet) is the 26th album in Wainwright’s long and illustrious career. It follows his acclaimed Older Than My Old Man Now album—“my death n’ decay opus,” as he calls it, and 2010’s Grammy Award-winning High Wide & Handsome.

After a lifetime of performing and recording, Suzzy Roche is enjoying singing on the road with her daughter Lucy Wainwright Roche. Lucy and Suzzy’s first recording, Fairytale and Myth, won the popular vote for Best Singer-Songwriter album of the year at the 2014 Independent Music Awards. The duo’s second album, Independent Music Award-nominated Mud & Apples, was released in 2016.

Originally from Park Ridge, New Jersey, Suzzy Roche is best known for her work with the vocal group The Roches, alongside sisters Maggie and Terre. She is the author of the novel Wayward Saints and the children’s book Want To Be in a Band? Suzzy is also an active member of a New York City-based experimental theater company known as The Wooster Group.

Born and raised in Greenwich Village, Lucy Wainwright Roche carries on the family traditions, although her first career choice out of college was to teach elementary school. Her critically acclaimed recordings and performances have earned her spots opening for artists like the Indigo Girls, Dar Williams, Girlyman, Amos Lee and her father.

Preceded by two EPs, 8 Songs and 8 More, she released her debut album, Lucy in October 2010. She also stars as Jeri in the Stuff You Should Know television show. Lucy has sung backup for Grammy Award-nominated artist Neko Case, including an appearance with Case on The Late Show with David Letterman. Two of her songs, “Once In” and “Starting Square” are featured on the soundtrack of the 2013 movie The Last Keepers.

Wainwright Music Without Borders MWB

Three Landmark favorite singer-songwriters return for an evening of thoughtful songs and plenty of familial harmonies. The All in a Family concert includes Grammy Award winner Loudon Wainwright III and acclaimed songwriters Suzzy Roche and Lucy Wainwright Roche.

Loudon Wainwright III has a history of success in multiple creative outlets. In 2010 he won the Best Traditional Folk Album Grammy for High Wide & Handsome: The Charlie Poole Project, and his 2012 recording, Older Than My Old Man Now, was named one of NPR's Top 10 Albums of the Year. His songs have been recorded by Bonnie Raitt, Johnny Cash, Earl Scruggs, Kate & Anna McGarrigle, Rufus Wainwright, and Mose Allison.

Loudon's 26th album, 2016's Haven't Got the Blues (Yet)--or HGTB(Y), for short -- is a 14-song, genre-bounding set ("eclectricity," he calls it) dealing with varied subject matter including depression, drinking, senior citizenship, gun control, heartbreak, pet ownership and New York City's arcane practice of alternate side-of-the-street parking.

Wainwright has also starred on TV in M.A.S.H. and Undeclared, and on Broadway in Pump Boys and Dinettes. Most recently, he appeared in Soderbergh's film Mosaic, and has been performing a one-man theatrical show, Surviving Twin, which combines his songs and the writings of his late father: Initially developed as part of University of North Carolina's Playmakers series, Surviving Twin focuses on fatherhood -- both being a father and having one -- and also explores the issues of birth, self-identity, loss, mortality, fashion, and of course, pet ownership.

Suzzy Roche's career in music began when she and her two sisters founded The Roches, a vocal group known for their rich harmonies, quirky lyrics, and casually comedic stage performances, which still performs today. An acclaimed singer songwriter in her own right, Suzzy has recorded two solo albums. She has written two books, appeared in on screen (Crossing Delancey) and has taught at NYU and Princeton.

Klezmatics Music Without Borders MWB

Since their emergence more than 30 years ago, the Klezmatics have raised the bar for Eastern European Jewish music Their aesthetically, politically and musically interesting recordings has inspired future generations and helped change the face of contemporary Yiddish culture. Often called a “Jewish roots band,” the Klezmatics have led a popular revival of this ages-old, nearly forgotten art form.

“Klezmer,” says London, “is the unique sound of East European Jewishness. It has the power to evoke a feeling of other-worldliness, of being there and then, of nostalgia for a time and place that we never knew.” The Klezmatics’ music is rooted in but is not a strictly traditional variety of the klezmer genre. Rather it is a comfortable hybrid that appeals equally to those with no previous exposure to the music and those already familiar with it. Although tradition is at the core of what they do, since the beginning the Klezmatics have adapted to the artistic sensibilities of a contemporary world.  “Klezmer has everything you want, ethnically, and yet it’s so intertwined with American culture,” says Morrissett. “We want to make sure that we are part of a living tradition, and living traditions change; they don’t stay in a pickled form.”

The Klezmatics have performed in more than 20 countries and released 11 albums to date—including their Grammy-winning 2006 album Wonder Wheel. They have also recently served as the subject of a feature-length documentary film, The Klezmatics: On Holy Ground. During their third-of-a-century existence the Klezmatics have collaborated with such brilliant artists as violinist Itzhak Perlman, Pulitzer prize-winning playwright Tony Kushner and Israeli vocal icon Chava Alberstein, plus many other prominent artists working within multiple genres.

Garland Jeffreys SOPAC MWB Music Without Borders

The legendary Garland Jeffreys doesn’t fit into neat little boxes: his thoughtful, passionate songs mix New Wave, Soul, Reggae, Garage Rock, Doo-wop and Latin influences to create a deeply personal hybrid that reflects his own multi-ethnic roots.  A New York native and veteran of the fertile mid-‘70s and early ‘80s scene that included peers like Bruce Springsteen, Lou Reed, Mink DeVille and Phoebe Snow, Garland Jeffreys’ songs range from streetwise urban-romantic love songs to penetrating social critiques tackling issues of race in America, especially on his album Don’t Call Me Buckwheat which has been called “one of the most important, hard hitting records since Marvin Gaye’s masterpiece What’s Going On (Stereo Review). With songs covered by artists as diverse as punk pioneers The Circle Jerks, neo-folk band Vetiver and Jazz trumpet great Randy Brecker, Garland Jeffreys is truly unclassifiable.

After a long hiatus, Garland Jeffreys has self-released three stellar albums over the last 7 years: The King of In Between, was featured on numerous 2011 year-end best of lists, including those of Rolling Stone, MSN, and NPR, and been recognized as “a late career masterpiece” (Minneapolis Star Tribune). Truth Serum in 2013 is “an album that’s urgent and immediate — much like NYC itself — but also filled with seven decades of gritty, street-smart attitude (American Songwriter), and 2017’s 14 Steps To Harlem had critics raving “more proof that he deserves musical comparisons that fall somewhere between Van Morrison, Bruce Springsteen and Graham Parker” (Pop Matters) and “shows the now 73-year old songwriter still reveling in the kind of wide-ranging songwriting that has today become a lost art” (Stereophile).

Garland Jeffreys’ songs have been featured in numerous films and television shows, most recently in the Netflix series The Get DownThe Deuce and Thirteen Reasons Why.

A proud inductee of the Long Island Music Hall of Fame, a New York Blues Hall of Famer and a recent addition to the prestigious Yale University Oral Music Archives, Jeffreys and his team are crowd funding a feature-length documentary, with interviews already filmed with Laurie Anderson, critic David Hajdu and Harvey Keitel.

John Oates MWB Music Without Borders

John Oates is one-half of the best-selling duo of all time, Daryl Hall & John Oates, as well as a member of the Songwriters Hall of Fame and Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

Now he has teamed up with a number of accomplished Americana musicians, known as The Good Road Band, to deliver his sixth solo album, Arkansas (Thirty Tigers).

The album pays homage to the state’s beautiful countryside and Oates’ interest in early American music. Beginning as a tribute to Oates’ musical idol, Mississippi John Hurt, the project evolved during a series of Nashville recording sessions into a unique, retrospective collection that drew from a wide range of Oates’ creative influences. John Oates’ critically acclaimed album is out now.

 “My uncle Tony, after World War II, moved to Fayetteville, Arkansas and lived there for the rest of his life. I went there to visit him,” says Oates, saying that the wide-open landscape captivated him as a youngster. Then, on a recent trip back to the area, inspiration struck. “I stood at night out in the middle of the cotton fields all along the banks of the Mississippi River and it was one of the most beautiful moments that I’ve ever experienced, with the moonlight shining on the white cotton, and I just thought, ‘Man, this is so American, in a way.'” Oates soon put pen to paper. “I went back to Nashville, and the next day I just wrote the song. It just came out of me.”

Rolling Stone hailed Arkansas as one of the Most Anticipated Country Albums of 2018. In addition, the publication said the album “pays tribute to the voices that became before him… shining a light not only on the state’s countryside, but its contributions to country music, too.”

“Listening to the sonic flavors of Arkansas is akin to a visit to a museum where the early history of music is on display – whether that genre be Country, Blues, or Rock.” – Billboard

Arkansas may be Oates’ very best album simply because the music is so much a part of him that he can deliver it with a simple intensity that evokes a range of feelings in the listeners.” – No Depression

Joe Mass nails the Neil vocals perfectly and the harmonies are spot on. Broken Arrow has audiences on their feet singing along and demanding encores at every show.

The Broken Arrow Neil Young Tribute has been postponed until Friday, January 11th. Tickets for the original October 12th performance will be honored on January 11th

Aaron Neville Duo Music Without Borders MWB

Until now, it's been easy to separate Aaron Neville's career into two separate but equal strains: the funky stuff he's favored when working with his esteemed band of brothers, and the angelic balladry you associate with him when he's punching his own time card as a solo artist. Casual fans might admit they don't know much -- to borrow a phrase -- about Neville's musical center, but they've perceived a certain split in his career. An education is about to be provided, then, in the form of Apache, a solo album that makes the case for Aaron Neville as the most holistic of soul men. Its hard R&B side matches anything the Neville Brothers ever recorded for true grit, while still allowing plenty of space for a singer who's arguably the most distinctive vocal stylist on the planet to tell it like it is.

Apache also reflects Neville's social and spiritual concerns, marking only the second time in his 56-year recording career that he's co-written nearly an entire album's worth of material. The words are straight out of a poetry journal he began keeping in the 1970s, which more recently migrated to his iPhone. Together with collaborators Eric Krasno (guitarist for the groups Soulive and Rustic) and Dave Gutter (frontman for the Rustic Overtones), Apache is a modern/revivalist marvel harking back to a golden age that produced classics like Marvin Gaye's What's Goin' On.

"I call it The Other Side of Aaron," says the 75-year-old legend, offering an alternative album title, "because people know me from doing the ballads and New Orleans stuff. They're getting another feel of Aaron" -- a record that touches on the mystic gumbo of "Yellow Moon" and sheer sweetness of "Everybody Plays the Fool" while diverging toward a third path we've never quite heard from Neville in the studio.

While Neville sometimes tours with his quintet, this is a smaller, more intimate show that features Neville and keyboard player Michael Goods. "I like the energy of the quintet," he says, "and I also like the laid-back quality of the duo, just coming off the top of my head with things, not having to worry about whether we rehearsed it. Sometimes I put Michael on the spot, because I'll come up with something he's never heard before, but then he'll catch it and that will make it even cooler. I bring the audience back to where I first started, with some Nat King Cole or anything that comes to my mind..."

And that mind is constantly racing, musically, just as it was in the days when the teachers would catch him deep in a distracted schoolboy reverie. "Because I've got about 10 million songs in my head. Some of 'em wake me up at 3:00 in the morning, and I've got to sing the whole song to myself before I can get back to sleep, to make sure I know all the words," he laughs. His middle-of-the-night song insomnia can make for his next audience's dream come true.

Amber Brown is Not a Crayon Music Without Borders

Amber Brown is having what may be the worst year of her life. She and Justin Daniels were the perfect team: they laughed at each other’s jokes, sat next to each other in class, and stayed best friends when Justin’s dad had to move away. But now things are different. Now, Justin’s house has been sold and he is going to Alabama; that’s too far from New Jersey to think about.

ArtsPower’s uniquely funny and forthright musical portrays a feisty young girl who refuses to let her problems get the better of her. You’ll laugh and cry with Amber as she learns some valuable lessons about the virtues of patience and the meaning of forgiveness.

Drawing audience members in with his deadpan self-deprecation and ability to pile punchline upon punchline, his decidedly low-key stage persona belies a deeply intelligent, often biting, occasionally absurdist worldview, one lauded by discerning fans who seek a fresh yet honest update to traditional observation and social commentary.

“Piercing, blinding, slaying, violating wit.” 
– NPR

Boasting multiple stand-up appearances on The Late Show with David LettermanLate Night with Conan O’BrienJimmy Kimmel Live!, and two Comedy Central Presentsspecials,  and his latest one hour Comedy Central special Super Crazy. Todd’s resume also includes such hit TV shows as LouieDelocatedBored to DeathTim and EricChappelle’s ShowSex and the City, and even Sesame Street. Among his additional feature-film highlights are Todd Phillips’s Road Trip, Louis CK’s Pootie Tang, and Mitch Hedberg’s Los Enchiladas.  You can see him soon at Sigourney Weaver’s right hand man in Amy Heckerling’s Vamps, and as Paul Rudd’s co-worker in David Wain’s Wanderlust. Internationally he has performed at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, the Melbourne International Comedy Festival, Montreal’s Just For Laughs Festival, the Vancouver International Comedy Festival, and Kilkenny, Ireland’s Cat Laughs Festival. 

 “Acerbic wit, deadpan delivery and wickedly smart punchlines.” 
– Time Out New York

Todd has been heard on both The Howard Stern Show and The Bob & Tom Show, and his albums Medium EnergyFalling Off the Bone, and From Heaven are available from Comedy Central Records, Amazon and iTunes. He has earned the U.S. Comedy Arts Festival’s Jury Award, praise from Ricky Gervais as one of the best comedians of 2009, and accolades from The Onion’s A.V. Club, which declared Medium Energy one of the best comedy albums of the decade.

 “Comedy savants revere this Conan and Letterman veteran’s hushed, singsong sarcasm.” 
– Entertainment Weekly

Todd was once the subject of a New York Times Arts section cover story, which referred to him as a “master of standup” and noted “when it comes to live performance, few comics are more consistently funny.” Find the Todd Barry Podcast iTunes and other platforms.

“Will the Circle be Unbroken”

Saturday, November 17, 2018 at 8PM at Emelin Theatre in Mamaroneck, NY

John McEuen

Join founding member of the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band (NGDB), John McEuen and his cast of virtuoso musicians for a special night filled with the music and memories of the landmark platinum album Will the Circle Be Unbroken and the NGDB’s incredible career. McEuen’s multimedia show chronicles the band’s fifty year journey including: 8mm footage from the earliest days in 1967; stories from behind the Iron Curtain as the first American band to tour Russia in 1977; and vintage photos, footage and audio from the famed ‘Circle’ recording session. Such hits as “Mr. Bojangles” “Will the Circle Be Unbroken” “Buy For Me the Rain” and “Dance Little Jean,” hot bluegrass, and rare early music, are interwoven throughout.

Fellow NGDB band members Les Thompson and John Cable, and guitar virtuoso Matt Cartsonis, all stellar musicians in their own right, join host John McEuen to share (in front of the screen) hits and stories leading up to this magical time when three generations came together to record Will the Circle Be Unbroken. Initiated by McEuen, the icons of Bluegrass, Country and West Coast Country Rock, including Roy Acuff, Doc Watson, Merle Travis, Jimmy Martin, Earl Scruggs, Vassar Clements, and Maybelle Carter, convened for six hot days in August 1971, to produce the benchmark record that is just as relevant today (still an Amazon top-20 album)! The Library of Congress inducted the multi-platinum ‘Circle’ as one of the most important American recordings. ‘Circle’ is also in the GRAMMY Hall of Fame.

The journey concludes with music from McEuen’s new album, Made in Brooklyn, allowing the audience to experience the entire span of the artist’s incredible 50 years in music.

ABOUT THE ARTIST
John McEuen has had a long and varied music career, first solo, then as a founding member of the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band (NGDB) in 1966. Over 10,000 concerts and 300 television shows throughout more than 3 million miles, he has pursued his passion for performing and recording, creating, producing and preserving original and traditional folk and acoustic music, and taking it to new audiences.

McEuen has performed and/or recorded with: Dolly Parton, Willie Nelson, Bill Wyman, Johnny Cash, Marshall Tucker Band, Steve Martin, The Smothers Brothers, Rowan & Martin, Clint Eastwood, Phish, Crystal Gayle, Michael Martin Murphey, Hans Olson, Tammy Wynette, Bill Monroe, Earl Scruggs, Lester Flatt, Leon Russell, Kevin Nealon, Tom Chapin, Pete Seeger, Mary McCaslin, Vassar Clements, Jose Feliciano, Sissy Spacek, Tommy Lee Jones, Andy Williams, Dizzy Gillespie, The Band, The Doors, Foreigner, John Denver, Kenny Rogers, Little Richard, Mary Chapin Carpenter, Robin Williams, Albert Gore, Robert Schimmel, Tom Petty, Stephen Wright, Little River Band, Air Supply, Doobie Brothers, Bill Cosby, Martha Redbone, Hootie and the Blowfish, the list goes on, and there are stories about all of them.

McEuen has made over 40 albums (7 solo) that have earned four platinum and five gold recognition awards, GRAMMY nominations, CMA and ACM awards, an Emmy nomination, IBMA record of the year award, and performed on another 25 albums as guest artist. He’s also produced another 7 albums, and 14 film scores (two Emmy nominated shows) and more than 300 concerts throughout his career – the first in 1965 in Long Beach California, with Bob Dylan.

In September of 2017 John was inducted in to the American Banjo Museum Hall of Fame. Arguably, McEuen’s most important legacy may be his initiating ‘Circle’, which Rolling Stone called “The most important record to come out of Nashville.”

Art Garfunkel Music Without Borders MWB

Hailed by the New York Times as a “beautiful countertenor,” legendary singer Art Garfunkel has made an indelible mark on the music world as both a solo artist and half of the unrivaled Simon & Garfunkel.  He has also enjoyed a successful film career, published a book of poetry and released 12 solo albums, the most recent being Some Enchanted Evening in 2007.  Garfunkel was originally revered for his Grammy-winning, chart-topping songs and albums with partner and fellow NYC native Paul Simon.  Their greatest hits collection, which includes “Mrs. Robinson,” “Scarborough Fair,” “The Sound of Silence,” “The Boxer” and “Bridge Over Troubled Water,” among others, is one of the best-selling albums of all time.  The late ‘80s brought two new challenges for Garfunkel: he published Still Water, a collection of poetry in ‘89, and began an amazing trek across America--on foot.

The last few decades find Garfunkel doing what he does best: singing for an audience.  “Taking on the fear and vulnerability of a live show keeps you vital,” says Garfunkel, who relishes the opportunity to perform new and classic material for fans around the world.  “I’m a singer trying to get away with a lucky job.  I try to soothe, to lift...That’s my life.”  In his intimate show that features himself, a guitarist, and often a piano/keys player, you’ll hear entertaining stories and, of course, his greatest hits.

he Willie Nile Band with Very Special Guest James Maddock

Willie Nile and James Maddock are an incredible pairing of Roots Rock singer-songwriters.

Willie Nile has toured across the U.S. with The Who and has sung with Bruce Springsteen and The E Street Band. As the induction program from the Buffalo Music Hall of Fame says: "His live performances are legendary."

The New York Times called Willie Nile "one of the most gifted singer-songwriters to emerge from the New York scene in years." His album Streets Of New York was hailed as "a platter for the ages" by Uncut magazine. Rolling Stone listed The Innocent Onesas one of the "Top Ten Best Under-The-Radar Albums of 2011" and BBC Radio called it "THE Rock 'N Roll album of the year." His single from that album, "One Guitar," was the "Top Pick of the Week" in USA Today.
Bono, Bruce Springsteen, Pete Townshend, Lou Reed, Lucinda Williams, Jim Jarmusch, and Little Steven are among those who have sung his praises.

His album, American Ride, won "Best Rock Album of the Year" at the Independent Music Awards. It appeared on dozens of year-end Top Ten lists for 2013 and was voted "Album Of The Year" at Twangville Magazine. Bono called it, "One of the great guides to unraveling the mystery that is the troubled beauty of America."
In November 2014 Willie Nile released a new album of piano-based songs, If I Was A River, to universal critical acclaim. "One of the most brilliant singer-songwriters of the past thirty years" said The New Yorker. Uncut called him "the unofficial poet laureate of New York City."


The best singer-songwriters serve the song. James Maddock, the "songwriter's songwriter," has earned the respect of masterful writers such as Bruce Springsteen and Willie Nile, and has built his acclaimed legacy on humbly honoring purity of expression. Many albums in his beloved catalog are elegantly spare, conveying his songs and sentiments in the most direct possible way.

Since 1999, James Maddock's boldly vulnerable songwriting, honeyed rasp, and distinct Folk and Americana aesthetic have garnered acclaim from icons, peers, and tastemaking outlets like NPR, American Songwriter, Relix Magazine, and CMT Edge. His consistency as a recording artist and a captivating live performer have attracted a devoted fanbase engaged and generous enough to fan fund the last two entries in his six-album oeuvre. He's performed with Bruce Springsteen, Willie Nile, Aaron Comess (Spin Doctors) and David Immergluck (Counting Crows), sang on an album with Susan McKeown, and has built a respected international profile through tireless touring from the Northeast US to Europe to Australia

An Evening with Fran Lebowitz in conversation with host Wally Lamb

Author, journalist, actress, and raconteur Fran Lebowitz stands out as one of our most insightful social commentators. Her essays and interviews offer her acerbic views on current events and the media – as well as pet peeves including tourists, baggage-claim areas, after-shave lotion, adults who roller-skate, children who speak French, or anyone who is unduly tan.

Purveyor of urban cool, Lebowitz is a cultural satirist whose writing — pointed, taut and economical — is equally forthright, irascible, and unapologetically opinionated on stage. Named one of the year's most stylish women by Vanity Fair, Lebowitz remains a style icon.

Her first book, a collection of essays titled Metropolitan Life, was a bestseller, as was a second collection, Social Studies. Lebowitz is also the author of the children’s book, Mr. Chas and Lisa Sue Meet the Pandas.

Lebowitz had a recurring role as Judge Janice Goldberg on the television drama Law & Order, and a part in the Martin Scorsese’s film, "The Wolf of Wall Street." She has long been a regular on various talk shows including those hosted by Jimmy Fallon, Conan O'Brien, and Bill Maher.

David Bromberg Music Without Borders

It is all about the blues for Americana godfather David Bromberg.  He has played with everyone, toured everywhere, and can lead a raucous big band or hold an audience silent with a solo acoustic blues. He is the master of multiple stringed instruments that he uses to guide audiences on an incredible musical journey. For his performance at the Hall, Bromberg is joined by his Big Band.

Born in Philadelphia in 1945 and raised in Tarrytown, NY, “as a kid I listened to rock ’n’ roll and whatever else was on the radio,” says Bromberg. “I discovered Pete Seeger and The Weavers and, through them, Reverend Gary Davis. I then discovered Big Bill Broonzy, who led me to Muddy Waters and the Chicago blues. This was more or less the same time I discovered Flatt and Scruggs, which led to Bill Monroe and Doc Watson.” 

Bromberg began studying guitar-playing when he was 13 and eventually enrolled in Columbia University as a musicology major. The call of the Greenwich Village folk scene in the mid-60s drew David to the downtown clubs and coffeehouses, where he could watch and learn from the best performers, including primary sources such as his inspiration and teacher, the Reverend Gary Davis. 

His incredible journey spans five-and-a-half decades, and includes adventures with Bob Dylan, George Harrison, Jerry Garcia.  A musician’s musician, Bromberg’s mastery of several stringed instruments (guitar, fiddle, Dobro, mandolin), and multiple styles is legendary, leading Dr. John to declare him an American icon.  In producing John Hartford’s hugely influential Aereo-Plain LP, Bromberg even co-invented a genre: Newgrass. 

During a period of self-imposed exile from his passion (1980-2002), he opened a shop in Wilmington, Delaware, called David Bromberg Fine Violins, and became a renowned violin expert.  In 2002 he made a triumphant return to music-making and since then has been unstoppable!  Bromberg’s musical revitalization has him playing shows on his own, or with his own David Bromberg Quartet.  He also has reunions of the David Bromberg Big Band, which we are thrilled to host onstage here at the Hall.  Listen for that joyful noise – David Bromberg’s back!   

http://www.davidbromberg.net/

Bromberg’s special guest for this performance is Loudon Wainwright.  Wainwright’s long and illustrious career is highlighted by more than two dozen album releases, movie and TV credits, and now his new autobiography, Liner Notes (2017 Penguin/Random House).  In 2010  he won a Grammy for Best Traditional Folk Album for High Wide & Handsome: The Charlie Poole Project.  His 2012 recording, Older Than My Old Man Now, was named one of NPR’s Top 10 Albums of the Year.  In 2014, Haven’t Got the Blues (Yet), marks his the 26th career release to-date.

Wainwright is perhaps best known for the novelty song “Dead Skunk (in the Middle of the Road)”, and for playing Captain Calvin Spalding, the “singing surgeon”, on the American television show, M*A*S*H. 

His songs have been recorded by Bonnie Raitt, Johnny Cash, Earl Scruggs, Kate & Anna McGarrigle, Rufus Wainwright, and Mose Allison.  He has collaborated with songwriter/producer Joe Henry, on the music for Judd Apatow’s hit movie Knocked Up.  Loudon penned music for the British theatrical adaptation of the Carl Hiaasen novel Lucky You.  He composed topical songs for NPR’s Morning Edition and All Things Considered and ABC’s Nightline, and recorded several songs for the soundtrack of HBO’s Boardwalk Empire.

 As an actor, Wainwright has appeared in films directed by Martin Scorsese, Hal Ashby, Christopher Guest, Tim Burton, Cameron Crowe, and Judd Apatow.

Brett Dennen Music Without Borders MWB

Singer-songwriter Brett Dennen shares his California folk sensibilities with sweet-natured pop with hits like “Ain’t No Reason” & “Wild Child”.  The singer's mostly acoustic tunes lean toward uplift and peace.  He's able to crank out big pop songs complete with splashy keyboards, catchy hooks and danceable beats, yet Dennen can strip his sound down to just his voice and a guitar with equally captivating results.

Singer-songwriter Brett Dennen is a contemplative introvert by nature, an adventurer by soul, and the great communicator by effect. Much of his music stems inspiration from indulging in the natural environment around him – from camping trips along the Sierra Nevada mountain range to climbing Everest and Kilimanjaro. In the consistent succession of six previous albums released since his self-titled 2005 debut, Dennen has fluidly motioned between worlds of self-reflection and discovery, and interacting with the environment outside of the self.

His last album, released in 2016, titled Por Favor which, from Spanish, translates to “please,” suggested a need for something, a desire to make a change; a word that Dennen felt alluded to asking for something to come into your life. Now, with his latest release, Let’s, he makes a conscious effort to step out, and create an open-ended invitation to band together with friends and strangers alike to create a “somewhat of a party,” he says, “a comfy environment where people can work together for common goals.”

Let’s is the first in a series of two EPs created with songwriter/producer Dan Wilson (Adele, Dixie Chicks) for 2018 release. The album is evidence of Dennen’s inherent ability to create community amongst listeners. As someone whose endeavors include a mountain town ski “Lift” series advancing environmental activism in the winter, and a beach “Vacationer” series supporting local environment preservation in the summer, Dennen has found a niche way of incorporating his love of music and the outdoors into his live tours.

Dennen is also an avid painter, most prominently with watercolors, creating artwork that can be seen in much of the branding for his albums, as well as his side projects. With an evolving appreciate for food and beverage, he developed his own line of wine Rosés, consequently named Dennen Wines, for which he also incorporates his artwork onto the labels. The California Rosé of the collection scored a 91 on Wine Spectator. Out of all wines, Dennen picked Rosé because he feels it “celebrates being alive,” and as a drink that is perfect for any gathering, any season, it goes hand-in-hand with everything that Let’s represents.

Dennen currenlty resides in Northern California.

Erin Rae MWB Music Without Borders

Erin Rae, whose genre-fusing mix of traditional folk and indie-rock has landed her collaborations with artists like Margo Price and Andrew Combs—not to mention critical acclaim from some of the world’s top music media, including Rolling Stone, NPR, and the BBC—is finally stepping out into the spotlight with her new album Putting On Airs. The album is out June 8, 2018 on Single Lock Records.

 

Buoying the release is Rae’s reputation as an enthralling live performer, which has earned her the respect of Nashville peers and music notables alike, including Grammy Award winner John Paul White, who has signed her to his Florence, Alabama-based label, Single Lock Records. Rae joins a Single Lock roster that includes Nicole Atkins, St. Paul And The Broken Bones, and White himself, who said “When I first heard Erin’s compelling voice, I knew nothing about her. It was live, with no intro (she was opening for friends of mine), and I was instantly transfixed. I couldn’t wait to engage, and that’s something I very seldom feel, much less do. I was thrilled to find out her personality was as engaging as her voice and songs, and that she was looking for a home. I couldn’t be happier to be hitching our wagons together.”

The Machine Music Without Borders

THE MACHINE, America’s top Pink Floyd show, has forged a 30-year reputation for extending the legacy of Pink Floyd, selling out theaters, premier rock clubs and casinos across North and Central America, Europe and Asia, performing at renowned music festivals such as Bonnaroo, Riverbend, and Gathering of the Vibes,  and sharing the stage with full symphony orchestras, including the Atlanta, Detroit, Pittsburgh and San Diego Symphonies.

The New York-based quartet performs a diverse mix of The Floyd’s extensive 16-album repertoire, complete with faithful renditions of popular hits as well as obscure gems.  With stellar musicianship and passionate delivery, The Machine explores collective improvisation rivaling that of an early 1970’s Pink Floyd. Their use of expanded theatrical elements and elaborate stage displays and lighting continues in the spirit of the later Floyd of the 1980’s. The band is also known for recreating entire albums as a part of their show, accepting requests from fans, and for taking an A to Z approach in which one song is played for every letter of the alphabet.  The members of The Machine include founding members Joe Pascarell (guitar, vocals) and Tahrah Cohen (drums), and longtime bandmates Stephen Bard (bass, vocals) and Scott Chasolen (keys, vocals).

“They duplicate the sound and hits of Pink Floyd with chilling accuracy, and they play for a hell of a long time.”- Matt Diehl – Rolling Stone

“These guys are great!”- Bob Ezrin – Co-Producer, Pink Floyd’s The Wall

“The Machine look nothing like Pink Floyd, but that doesn’t matter – they sound exactly like Pink Floyd, and that’s what counts.”- Matthew Webber Spin Magazine

Special appreciation to NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital for their generous support
The Kingston Trio was one of the most influential bands to emerge from the 1950’s, only to be outdone by the BEATLES. With talent and tenacity, they rose to become the undisputed kings of an acoustic musical genre that exploded onto the American scene, and still exists today! They were never actually folksingers but more a musical and vocal group that performed a variety of styles. Audiences worldwide agreed. Recently, the Kingston Trio received the “Grand Grammy” of all Grammys: The Lifetime Achievement Award.  Continuing the legacy of the iconic group, Josh Reynolds, son of original founding member Nick Reynolds, has joined forces with two of Nick’s closest kindred spirits, Mike Marvin, Nick’s nephew and Tim Gorelangton, Mike’s musical brother.  Alongside Josh, Mike & Tim have re-captured that original Kingston Trio magic with their energy, humor and crowd charming musical repertoire.

The Wood Brothers Music Without Borders MWB

The Wood Brothers hold a special place in the hearts of fans in the Capital District for their performances at Levon Helm's legendary Midnight Ramble.  This trio - guitarist Oliver Wood, bassist Chris Wood, and drummer Jano Rix - adapts blues, folk, and roots music into their own evocative sound. 

They will be performing songs from their vast catalog, as well as songs off their newest album, One Drop of Truth.  “It’s the freest album we’ve done, the most independent album we’ve done, and was the most fun we’ve ever had making a record,” says Oliver Wood. “And most importantly, this is the most purely Wood Brothers’ album we’ve ever made.”

Indeed, The Wood Brothers’ sixth outing, One Drop of Truth, dives headfirst into a deep wellspring of sounds, styles and influences. Whereas their previous outings have often followed a conceptual and sonic through-line, here the long-standing trio featuring brothers Oliver and Chris Wood along with Jano Rix treat each song as if it were its own short film. The end result is undeniably The Wood Brothers’ most dynamic recording to date.

“Often, when you’re making an album in the traditional way, there will be a unifying concept, whether that be in the approach to the music stylistically or lyrically in terms over the overall narrative. And even though there are some themes that revealed themselves later, this one is all over the place,” explains Oliver Wood. “What I really love about this record is that each one of these songs has its own little world. There are diver-se sounds and vibes from one track to the next.”

Building off the success of their previous studio album, 2015’s ‘Paradise,’ which was dubbed “the warmest, most sublime and occasionally rowdiest Wood Brothers release yet,” by American Songwriter, the band found themselves at a fortuitous crossroads. Following a tour with Tedeschi Trucks Ba­­­­­nd, high profile festival dates and sold out headline shows, the band felt free from the cyclical album release, tour, write, record and do-it-all-over-again pressures of the traditional music business. With all three members living in Nashville affording easy access to each other and a wealth of local independent studios at their disposal, they started work in January of 2017 with a new approach.

“Instead of going into one studio and recording it all at the same time, we picked a couple studios, and started to experiment,” says Chris Wood. “Sometimes we’d just make demos of songs to see if we got anything we liked. There was no pressure, and that really freed us up. We just did one or two songs a day, put it aside, let the songs simmer, and then we’d have a fresh perspective on what was working or not working. You need time to go by to gain objectivity.”

Fittingly titled, One Drop of Truth, the latest entry in The Wood Brothers evolution finds three musicians being true to themselves. At a point in their career where most artists would be looking to strategically position themselves for even greater commercial success, they instead turned to artistic expression in service of the muse. In chaotic times when honesty is in short supply and ulterior motives seem to always be at play, The Wood Brothers put faith in themselves and ultimately their audience by writing and recording a collection of songs that is honest and pure. As they sing on the album’s title track: “Rather die hungry / than feasting on lies / Give me one drop of truth / I cannot deny.”

Good magicians don’t need sleeves and great magicians don’t need pants. This show proves just that!

18+ only. Includes coarse language, sexual references and male nudity… get ready to have some fun!

MEET THE NAKED MAGICIANS

Christopher Wayne

As co-creator and co-star of The Naked Magicians, Christopher Wayne has a wit quicker than Kim Kardashian’s first marriage. He is often confused as a Macklemore look-a-like. He is proud owner of a freakily long tongue and an entertainment resume as impressive as his broad climbable shoulders.

Originally known as the “clothed” magician on Channel 10’s long-running kids TV program, Christopher then became the first Australian magician in TV history to have his own TV series, More Than Magic which aired in Australia, New Zealand, England, and USA. Christopher also spent four years as the head comedy writer for Queensland’s favorite breakfast radio show B105 and continues regular guest spots on several radio stations in Australia.

Christopher  is happiest on stage in front of thousands of fans with his sleeves up and pants down! Don’t be fooled by his nice guy image, he’s much more naughty than nice.

Mike Tyler

The complete package of funny, athletic, sexy and good with his hands. Mike Tyler is perfectly suited to be co-creator and co-star of the world’s naughtiest and funniest magic show, The Naked Magicians.

Getting his gear off has always come naturally to Mike who was a competitive swimmer competing at the National Championships and Pan Pacific Games… keep an eye out for his incredible physique and sporty tan lines on stage as proof! After attending school on a scholarship, he completed a university degree but soon realized his dream of becoming an entertainer with a quick wit, modest ego, and incredible sleight-of-hand skill.

At the age of 31, Mike is considered one of Australia’s favorite and most successful entertainers performing over 250 “clothed” shows for the biggest companies and sporting teams in the country. He has performed countless times to millions of people on TV in Australia, New Zealand, and USA while performing magic in 10 countries around the world.

Be careful catching his gaze for too long, as Mike is also a highly skilled comedy hypnotist! Flirt at your own risk.

Josh Ritter will return to the Northeast for a select number of special solo acoustic shows, highlighting brand new material, as well as songs from his extensive, critically acclaimed catalog.

Josh’s latest album, Gathering (Pytheas Recordings/Thirty Tigers), continues to receive critical praise, about which NPR proclaims, “Josh Ritter remains at the top of his game two decades into a highlight-strewn career. He’d be forgiven for loosening his grip, but his hand has never felt surer.”  Rolling Stone describes it as “midway between the country, gospel and soul camps, with thickly stacked harmonies that evoke the Dead’s own folk-rock classic American Beauty.”  Gathering features a duet with Bob Weir, whom Ritter worked with on Weir’s recent solo album Blue Mountain.

Over the course of his acclaimed career, Ritter has released seven full-length albums including, 2013’s The Beast In Its Tracks, which debuted at #22 on the Billboard 200 and #8 on the Top Rock Albums chart. The record also received widespread critical praise — ”NPR Music” called it, “…gorgeous and glorious,” while “Pitchfork” asserted, “Beast is contemplative and forgiving, a means of burying one relationship to commit to another, and Ritter nicely evokes the excitement and resignation of such a transition.” Additionally, in 2011, Ritter made his debut as a published author with his New York Times best-selling novel, “Bright’s Passage” (Dial Press/Random House). Stephen King writes in The New York Times Book Review, that the work “shines with a compressed lyricism that recalls Ray Bradbury in his prime…This is the work of a gifted novelist.”

Peter Yarrow Noel Paul Stookey Music Without Borders MWB

Peter Yarrow and Noel Paul Stookey, also known simply as Peter and Paul, along with Mary Travers founded the legendary Folk trio Peter, Paul and Mary. The group performed for nearly 50 years, won five Grammy Awards, and produced 13 Top 40 hits. They earned eight gold and five platinum albums, all the while continuing a centuries-old tradition of people raising their voices in song for the sake of freedom and social justice.

The group reclaimed Folk’s potency as a social, cultural and political force. Their performances of such songs as “Leaving On A Jet Plane,” “Puff, The Magic Dragon,” “Blowin’ In The Wind” and more are forever etched into the history of American popular song.

They recorded their debut albumPeter, Paul and Mary, in 1962. It included “Lemon Tree,” “500 Miles,” and the Pete Seeger hit tunes “If I Had a Hammer”  and “Where Have All the Flowers Gone?” It remained a main catalog-seller for decades to come, eventually selling over two million copies, earning double platinum certification in the United States alone.

They were the quintessential group of the Folk revival movement of the 1960s and joined their musical genius with songs that celebrated the common man and the virtues of freedom and activism. As the decade progressed they lent their voices and passion to liberal causes. Following Minnesota Senator Eugene McCarthy’s strong showing in the 1968 New Hampshire Primary, the group recorded “Eugene McCarthy For President (If You Love Your Country)” endorsing McCarthy, which was released without a record label. Yarrow eventually married the politician’s niece. Stookey wrote the classic “There is Love” for their wedding ceremony.

The group was inducted into the Vocal Group Hall of Fame in 1999, and received the Sammy Cahn Lifetime Achievement Award from the Songwriters Hall of Fame in 2006.

During breaks from Peter, Paul and Mary and following Mary Travers’s death in 2009, Peter and Paul have led significant careers as solo artists. They each enjoy active performance schedules and focus on a wide range of social justice efforts. Peter and Paul also come together for a few concerts each year. In this special evening, the artists celebrate through song and reflection the enduring impact of their music and advocacy.

Garland Jeffreys Music Without Borders

Legendary singer Garland Jeffreys’ thoughtful, passionate songs mix new wave, soul, reggae, garage rock, doo-wop, and Latin influences to create a deeply personal hybrid that reflects his own multi-ethnic roots. A New York native and veteran of the fertile mid-70s and early 80s scene, Jeffreys’ songs range from streetwise urban-romantic love songs to penetrating social critiques tackling issues of race in America.

After a long hiatus, Jeffreys has self-released three stellar albums over the last seven years: The King of In Between, was featured on numerous 2011 year-end best of lists, including those of Rolling Stone, MSN, and NPR, and been recognized as “a late career masterpiece” (Minneapolis Star Tribune). Truth Serum (2013) is “an album that’s urgent and immediate—much like New York City itself—but also filled with seven decades of gritty, street-smart attitude” (American Songwriter), and 14 Steps To Harlem (2017) had critics raving “more proof that he deserves musical comparisons that fall somewhere between Van Morrison, Bruce Springsteen, and Graham Parker” (Pop Matters)and “shows the now 73-year-old songwriter still reveling in the kind of wide-ranging songwriting that has today become a lost art” (Stereophile).

Dave Alvin Jimmie Dale Gilmore Music Without Borders

Roots music legends, Dave Alvin & Jimmie Dale Gilmore, have been friends for 30 years, but only recently realized they had never played music with each other before. So in 2017, Grammy Award winner Alvin and Grammy Award nominee Gilmore, decided to hit the highway to swap songs, tell stories, and share their life experiences.

Though Texas-born Gilmore was twice named Country Artist of the Year by Rolling Stone, and California native Alvin first came to fame in the hard rocking Rhythm & Blues band The Blasters, they discovered that their musical roots in old Blues and Folk music are exactly the same. Mutually energized and inspired by these performances, Dave Alvin & Jimmie Dale Gilmore agreed to hit the road again in 2018… this time with a new album, a full band and some new stories to share.

Downey To Lubbock (released June 2018)  

Dave Alvin & Jimmie Dale Gilmore have been filling canvasses with music of the American West for decades, coming from two very different directions.

Downey, California to Lubbock, Texas is a thousand-mile straight shot across the heart of the American West, with not much in between. The cities at each end of the line are one-time cowtowns that grew into symmetrically-platted working-class communities with very little to interrupt the horizon plane, making for big empty canvasses that require a vivid imagination to fill in all that blank space.

The title track explains Alvin is a Strat-packing, wild Blues Blaster, a nod to the Roots Rock band he formed with his brother Phil in 1978 before Dave peeled off to go his own way in 1986. He’s been part of the bands X, the Knitters, and the Flesh Eaters, tours relentlessly with his own band, the Guilty Ones, and continues apace on musical quests informed by his love of California and its history, and by Texas and the South, where most of the great music that was made in Los Angeles before and after the Second World War came from.

Gilmore is the old Flatlander from the Great High Plains, acknowledging his first group, the Folk-Country trio formed in Lubbock 1972 with Joe Ely and Butch Hancock who continue performing and recording today. In addition to the Flatlanders and an extended solo career, he has been part of several ensembles including the Hub City Movers and The Wronglers with Warren Hellman, who started the Hardly, Strictly Bluegrass Festival in San Francisco. 

Alvin is a rowdy baritone. Gilmore, the timekeeper of the high lonesome, warbles. Each is an avatar, an authentic, original creator with a strong sense of place and music. 

That combination might seem like oil and water. But mixed together in the forms of Downey To Lubbock is powerful stuff. 

Taking on all kinds of American music from the 1920s to the present is a very ambitious, very difficult feat to pull off. These two very particular, very peculiar, very not intellectual music-makers make it a joy to behold.

Air Supply | Music Without Borders

We are thrilled to welcome Air Supply back to the Music Hall! Australian soft rock duo with British-born singer-songwriter and guitarist Graham Russell and lead vocalist Russell Hitchcock are known for their heavily orchestrated sweet ballads. They had a succession of hits worldwide, including eight Top Ten hits in the United States, in the early 1980s including “Lost in Love” and “All Out of Love". Graham Russell & Russell Hitchcock met on May 12, 1975, the first day of rehearsals for "Jesus Christ Superstar" in Sydney, Australia; they became instant friends with their common love for The Beatles and, of course, singing. Seven  top-five  singles  later,  Air  Supply at  that  time  had  equaled  The  Beatles'  run  of  consecutive top  five  singles.  The  albums  Lost  in  Love, The  One  That  You  Love,  Now  &  Forever,  and  The  Greatest  Hits  sold  in  excess  of  20  million  copies. "Lost  in Love"  was  named  Song  of  the  Year  in  1980,  and,  with  the  other  singles,  sold  more  than  10 million  copies.

A Music Hall favorite returns once again! The Mavericks are back for a two night run, supporting their newest album Brand New Day.  The genre-defying Mavericks are declaring their independence and stepping out on their own with Brand New Day, the first studio album released on Mono Mundo Recordings, the label they founded in 2016. Brand New Day is the follow-up to the widely praised albums Mono (2015) and In Time (2013). Flashing the same exhilarating, beyond-category style that has defined the Mavericks, the new album introduces a collection of taut, energetic, economical songs sure to be embraced by both original fans of their top-10 albums and hit singles of the ‘90s and a new generation of listeners who have joined the party since their triumphant 2012 reunion. It is the mature and timely work of an exciting and underestimated American band that has embraced its own destiny. “This is the first studio record on our own label, and it is an important component in the band’s history,” Malo says, “but the real goal was just to make a great record.” The new collection – co-produced like its immediate predecessors by the band’s golden-voiced singer Raul Malo and Niko Bolas (Neil Young, Warren Zevon, Melissa Etheridge), who is partnered with the band in the new Mono Mundo imprint – features the core members of the group since their reformation: Malo, drummer Paul Deakin, guitarist Eddie Perez, and keyboardist Jerry Dale McFadden, along with auxiliary members “the Fantastic Four” filling out the set’s brawny sound with their signature accordion and horns.
