March 16, 2018 @ 7:00pm – Caffe Vivaldi, Greenwich Village
32 Jones Street, (off Bleecker Street, near Seventh Avenue), New York, NY 10014, USA

SOOO EXCITED to be playing the renowned Caffe Vivaldi! When Joseph Brodsky won the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1987, he gave international press interviews while sitting down at Vivaldi and enjoying his favorite drink. When Woody Allen and Al Pacino wanted to make movies featuring the timeless quality of Greenwich Village, they came to Vivaldi. Over the last thirty years, Vivaldi has been a haven for New Yorkers and creative people from the world over. However, it has always been a gathering place for musicians. It is, after all, named for the Italian composer, Antonio Vivaldi. With live music seven days a week, The Listening Room at Caffe Vivaldi has become New York’s premier spot for original music by uniquely creative singer-songwriters. SO PROUD to be invited to play here – Can’t Wait!
