may 12 I David Bromberg Quintet I 8PM

David Bromberg's incredible journey spans five-and-a-half decades, and includes – but is not limited to – adventures with Bob Dylan, George Harrison, Jerry Garcia and music and life lessons from seminal blues guitarist Rev. Gary Davis, who claimed the young Bromberg as a son. A musician’s musician, his mastery of various stringed instruments 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.  

Now, with “The Blues, the Whole Blues, and Nothing But the Blues” his first release for Red House Records, Bromberg and multi-Grammy-winning producer/accompanist Larry Campbell (Dylan, Levon Helm, Paul Simon) focus on the music David discovered in high school, when, circa late 50s, he was introduced to a friend’s dad’s collection of blues 78s. He’d only just taken up guitar as a means to pass the time while in bed with the measles.

 MAY 13 I AN Evening with Gilbert Gottfried I 8PM

At the young age of 15, Gilbert Gottfried began doing stand-up at open mike nights in New York City, after a few short years, became known around town as “the comedian’s comedian.” After spending several years mastering the art of stand-up comedy, producers of the legendary NBC late night comedy show Saturday Night Live became aware of Gottfried and, in 1980, hired him as a cast member. It wasn’t until a few years later when his true notoriety would begin when MTV hired him for a series of improvised and hilarious promos for the newly formed channel. This led to several television appearances on “The Cosby Show” and “Late Night with David Letterman.”

For over 50 years, John Mayall has served as a pioneer of blues music, rightly earning him the title, "The Godfather of British Blues". Throughout the years, John Mayall’s bands have been a breeding ground for future rock stars; Eric Clapton left the Bluesbreakers to form Cream, Peter Green, John McVie and Mick Fleetwood became Fleetwood Mac, Andy Fraser formed Free, and Mick Taylor joined the Rolling Stones. It was John’s own drummer-less acoustic live album “The Turning Point” and its track “Room To Move” that solidified his place in rock history.
