Jul-21-17 12:00 AM Early Elton performing 'Madman Across The Water' in its entirety, plus a set of favorites! - Sold out, Join the wait list About:

As the story goes, Elton's label didn't have the funds to send him out to tour the US with a full band, yet Elton needed to promote his imminent releases. Having decided on Dee and Nigel, Elton then rearranged the songs and vocals to fit within the limitations of his new lineup. Suddenly, a new sound emerged that was both raw and poignant.

While Jeff, John and Rich have painstakingly scoured the net for rare video, bootleg recordings and even Elton's own home demos in shaping their collective vision of Elton's Trio Period, they blur the line slightly between replication and innovation -- while still capturing and utilizing the spirit, mood and energy from those early tours.

The Gospel/Funk of "Take Me To The Pilot", the soulful storytelling of "Levon" and "Amoreena", the epic-sounding "Burn Down The Mission", the countrified "Country Comfort" and the grand scale of "Madman Across The Water" are just a few of the fantastic chapters that make up the Early Elton song book. The band has also been known to perform Tumbleweed Connection and the live concert, 11 - 17 - 70, in their entireties.

Early Elton is dedicated to continuing the spirit of this period—arguably, his finest in terms of material, production and performance.

Biography - Mollie Battenhouse

It's not a widely known fact that a BFA degree can make for a good entry into the food and beverage industry, but that's how Mollie Battenhouse found her way. A student of painting and sculpture, she supported herself through school by working in restaurants. She graduated cum laude from Wesleyan College in Macon, Georgia , but the pace and energy of restaurants beckoned, and she made it her mission to assemble a stellar resume. She enrolled in The Culinary Institute of America and graduated at the top of her class. She would go on to work at acclaimed restaurants like Payard Patisserie and Bistro and Pondicherry in New York City. Battenhouse's move into wine began with a part-time job at Joshua Wesson's Best Cellars wine shop in Manhattan. Battenhouse found her home in wine at the store; what started as a part-time gig turned into an eight-year tenure. She returned to the restaurant world to work as head sommelier at Tribeca Grill, where she was responsible for maintaining a Wine Spectator Grand Award-winning wine list. Following Tribeca Grill, Mollie moved to the distribution side of the business, and was the Director of Sales and Business Development for V.O.S. Selections in New York and New Jersey. Mollie is currently employed by Jackson Family Wines as the National Director of Wine Education.  Mollie is also an Advanced Sommelier with the Court of Master Sommeliers. In her free time, Mollie is a WineRing Wine Expert, she teaches classes at The International Wine Center, swims, and trains for half-marathons.

Jul-23-17 10:00 PM Toad the Wet Sprocket VIP M&G Package About:

Toad the Wet Sprocket VIP Includes

  - One premium ticket
  - One Meet & Greet with the band from 5pm-5:30pm
  - One Photograph with the band
  - One Exclusive Merchandise Item

Toad the Wet Sprocket (Glen Phillips on lead vocals and guitar, Dean Dinning on bass and vocals, Todd Nichols on lead guitar and vocals, and Randy Guss on the drums) share in the kind of musical chemistry that can only come from meeting in high school and writing, recording and touring on albums over the course of those 25 years. After “Bread & Circus,” they followed with “Pale” in 1990, “fear” in ’91, “Dulcinea” in 1994, and “Coil” in 1997, as well as some compilations and rarities compilations along the way. While most will feel the comforting familiarity of the Billboard-charting hits, “Walk on the Ocean,” “All I Want,” “Something’s Always Wrong,” and “Fall Down,” new fans will also be well familiar with their new hits such as “California Wasted” which continues to climb the charts. Even with a period of the band members weaving in and out of each other’s musical lives, the same creative curiosity that inspired the band to form in 1986 has brought them full circle to come back together again. Toad the Wet Sprocket’s last album “New Constellation,” which was launched with an impressive #3 most funded Kickstarter Campaign in music for the year, was the bands’ first new album in 16 years when released in 2013, and features the singles “New Constellation”, “The Moment”, and “California Wasted.” The band’s current release, the EP “Architect of Ruin” was released in June of 2015.

 

 

 

Jul-24-17 12:00 AM The Resistance Revival: A Restoration of Force About:

The Women’s March presents THE RESISTANCE REVIVAL: A Restoration of Force. We are calling for a resistance revival, a revival of our spirits, of our commitment to the movement, of our joy and of our power. The Resistance Revival is a regular series of musical events where we bring song to life in the spirit of collective joy and resistance. We aim to bring together, in community,  a group of diverse artists to join in songs of resistance and protest with the foundation that JOY is an act of resistance! Our movement must be fueled by equal parts protest and culture. The Women's March will host monthly song nights and encourage organizers to hold similar night’s nationally. Music and protest songs have always been a hallmark of the great civil rights movements. We honor this tradition by uplifting these songs and creating new ones for the new resistance.
