Phil R.


Group Founder


New York, NY
Hometown: New York

Organizer since:

July 5, 2012


What's your favorite kind of 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!

What are your own creative pursuits?

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!

What kind of people would you like to meet in this meetup?

People to bond with over the music.

Know of any MUSICIANS you'd like us to include at an event?

Ani DiFranco, Dan Bern, Noe Venable, Rachael Sage, Mike Rocket ...and me :-)

Know any VENUES where you'd like us to hold an event?

Those beautiful open gardens in the East Village (eg. the one with the weeping willow trees). Central Park. The Brooklyn Bridge.


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!

What Phil R. is saying about this Meetup Group

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!
