Friends in the Tri-State Area,
I'm playing with a version of my Manhattan All-Stars and a great vocalist (and when I say great I mean great, because it takes a lot for me to give props to a vocalist) Svetlana Schmulyan tonight (and every Monday) at The Back Room from 9-12am, no cover! This is my favorite spot in NYC to play. The vibe is happening. Three weeks ago Samson, Ludovic et al showed up so you never know what might happen. The drinks are reasonably priced for Manhattan and there are lots of single girls or if you're looking for a hip spot for date night, this has that flavor as well. Couches, fireplaces, hidden rooms, the whole bit.
This was indeed Meyer Lansky and Lucky Luciano's hang out back in the day so it's got that trippy gangster ambiance that most places try for but never get. This band is all heavy hitters so come on down! The password is: "Cigarette me, big boy"
All the best,
