    This night was a FANTASTIC success!! All three bands turned in exciting, high-energy sets, and the audience came out in strong numbers (243, just shy of a sell-out crowd of 250!). After the 3-hour concert, it was a great time continuing the meetup nearby at Katz's Deli, with the audience and the musicians themselves having the chance to hang out with each other. THANK YOU to the NY Musicians Group for making this night a big success, and a milestone event as some of our own home-team musicians got to take over such a legendary, world-famous rock club. Looking forward to the next one! More please :-)

    THE AFTER-PARTY! Following the event, all three bands will be headed next door to KATZ's DELI for the AFTERPARTY. All Meetup Members are welcome to join them! (We expect a turnout of about[masked] people for the show, so it'll be natural to continue the 'meetup' after the show ends at 10pm). See you there! -- Phil

    I'm super-excited to see The Villalobos Brothers perform-- they're true international stars and have played everywhere from The Apollo, to Carnegie Hall, & Shea Stadium... to The Latin Grammys! Can't believe that we get to share the stage with them for a night. This is a huge opportunity, and one that only the Meetup community has made possible! Thank you all!
