Amateur Night at the Apollo is live entertainment with a history. This weekly talent competition began in 1934 and within months became a leading showcase for emerging performers. Among its early winners was a 15-year-old Ella Fitzgerald. Since then the series has launched the careers of James Brown, Stevie Wonder, Michael Jackson, and Lauryn Hill.
Today Amateur Night attracts performers and audiences from around the world. Audience members, known for their toughness and expectation that contestants "be good or be gone," gleefully choose the winners.
BAMcafé Live is a free weekly performance series, featuring a mix of live music in a bar and lounge space. Performances span jazz, R&B, Afro-pop, Latin, rock, experimental music, and spoken-word poetry. Duncan Sheik, Billy Martin, Survival Soundz, Tracie Morris, and Carl Hancock Rux are among the series' alums.
This musical journey takes audiences back in time — specifically, to when "soul" emerged as a style of music. Berry Gordy's Motown label and his studio band the Funk Brothers helped popularize soul music, as did Stax Records' Booker T. & the MG's. Before long, James Brown became the "Godfather of Soul" and Aretha Franklin its queen.
Now vocalists Prentiss McNeil (of the Drifters) and Bruce Wayne (of the Midnight Movers, Wilson Pickett's backing band) lead this classic soul revue. Their energy is unmatched; their showmanship, breathtaking. A Decade of Soul is a passion-driven tribute; the passion may even drive audience members out of their seats and onto their feet.
Emmy Award winner Adrienne Danrich, star of her own creative one-woman shows This Little Light of Mine and Echoes of the Harlem Renaissance, makes her Feinstein's/54 Below debut in celebration of the release of her debut solo album, Love & Trouble: Five Personas, One Voice, produced by Roven Records. Joined by pianist Mila Henry (the Apollo, Feinstein's/54 Below) and guitarist Jack Cavari (Lennon, Thoroughly Modern Millie), the effervescent, multitalented Danrich brings you a show combining classical, jazz, blues, and gospel, all written in collaboration with critically acclaimed composer Dave Hall.
With guest performances by Kelly Hall-Tompkins (Broadway's "Fiddler" violin soloist in Fiddler on the Roof), multi-genre recording artist Candice Hoyes (TED Talk, Music at Google) and sensational divas Olanna Goudeau & Ashley Renée Watkins (Acte II, America's Got Talent), Love & Trouble promises a toe-tapping, emotionally riveting, and uplifting evening of song!
Discover the secrets of your favorite neighborhood or museum on a Watson Adventures Scavenger Hunt. You won't be collecting objects (put back that statue!) but searching for answers to tricky and humorous questions. You can decipher a message in the sky in Central Park, find out what to do with a "fun goon" in Chinatown, track ghosts in Greenwich Village, solve a murder mystery at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and much more. No knowledge of any hunt location is required — you just need a sharp mind and a good pair of shoes.
