I'm a Singer-Songwriter ( http://www.PhilRo... ), who performs regularly around NYC, both solo and with my band, The Bliss Jockeys. I'm very grateful for the musicians and fans which have formed the warm, nurturing community around the music!
I'm a fan of the earnest singer-songwriters who convey a message through their music and build real community around a set of values or ideas (Bruce Springsteen, Cat Stevens, Woody Guthrie). Musically, I love the creative use of roots, rock, blues and gospel sounds to ENGAGE and INVOLVE the audience. When I perform, I love hearing the entire audience clapping, stomping and singing back at me!
I'm a Singer/Songwriter who performs solo as well as with my band, The Bliss Jockeys. The Bliss Jockeys is a large rock/pop band + gospel choir. We create a delirious, over-the-top experience!
People to bond with over the music.
Ani DiFranco, Dan Bern, Noe Venable, Rachael Sage, Mike Rocket ...and me :-)
Those beautiful open gardens in the East Village (eg. the one with the weeping willow trees). Central Park. The Brooklyn Bridge.
This meetup offers up a series of wonderful music nights with some of the best musicians NYC has to offer, in fantastic settings. The members who come are a great and hip community with excellent taste and it's a joy to spend time getting to know them. I'm looking forward to many, many more events from this group in the future!
Hey Phil, my name is Myra:) Since we are in a couple of the same groups, I was wondering if you could possibly recommend a place/ group for me: I'd like to find a group that meets up to sing gospel... like a community choir, band, or open mic type thing, etc. Mostly something collaborative vs. a regular open mic. Any suggestions are appreciated. Thanks!
Peace and Blessings,
Hi, Phil, welcome to STSANY! We'd love to hear you perform, so come to a meetup, soon. What is your repertoire? You'll have some performance opportunities with our group.
Welcome to Bklyn Drum Circles Phil! Hope to see you at our next in November.
phil, i got your email looking for vocalists, I emailed 2 women that I know, let me know if it works out: Daralyn and Ayana?
Hi Phil -- I'm still trying to figure out how to navigate the meetup pages -- I signed up to come to this Friday's Culture Circle, and can't come. I see there's 1 on the waiting list, so want to be sure my spot is open for someone else. I'm new to your group -- and will be coming to February's Circle -- and, I'm so looking forward to meeting folks tonight at Kenny's Castaway.
I will be there this Friday with poetry,
Prof Barbara Foster/belladonna
I have a question about how I might tell your group members about a Jungian-inspired iPhone/iPad App I developed (www.inyourdreams.mobi). Let me know if there is a way to do this. Thanks!
Thanks, Phil. I wasn't able to make Thursday's jam but plan to make the next one, whenever it is. Wally
