Peter Boie

09/14/16 – Join us for a stretch of performances by Peter Boie- running Sep. 14, 15 &16th, 7PM shows + Oct. 31st 8PM show !!! Peter first became fascinated with magic at the age of eleven when he stumbled across a magic book at his local library. He now travels around the country performing his award winning magic that will defy your reality. Peter's show is about two things, astonishing magic, and having a good time; and he doesn't skimp on either. You might recognize him by his trademark orange sneakers, or from the group of people around him freaking out at his magic and having a good time. The title Magician for Non-Believers is about being honest with his audience. Magic isn’t real... but Peter will make you believe it is for the length of his show. Combining original mind blowing magic, and a heavy dose of humor is his secret to success and why it’s made him one of the top booked college acts around the country. Peter recently showcased his talents on national TV, where he performed for the CW Network's hit show, Penn & Teller Fool Us. He was also nominated for "Entertainer of the Year 2015" from Campus Activities Magazine. Other nominations include ‘Best Variety Performer’ (2010,2011,2012, 2013), ‘Fastest Rising Star’ (2010 & 2012) and ‘Best Male Performer’ (2011 & 2012).

Somewhere Between: Not an Ordinary Life

09/23/16 – SOMEWHERE BETWEEN: NOT AN ORDINARY LIFE is an autobiographical solo show written and performed by two-time Grammy nominee Cidny Bullens. The story begins with Cindy’s arrival in Los Angeles in the mid-1970’s, taking us through her fateful meetings with songwriter/producer Bob Crewe and Sir Elton John - brushing ever so close to stardom - and covers her unlikely journey as a wife and mother, then as a bereaved parent, and finally as a grandparent. We learn throughout about Cindy’s private struggle with gender identity and how, finally, she decides to jump headlong into the fire of gender transition - to become Cidny, the person he always felt he was. Cidny Bullens’ SOMEWHERE BETWEEN is a personal, poignant and powerful story of perseverance, tragedy, triumph - and ultimately unconditional love. With a unique perspective on life, Cidny tells his story in an intimate setting with a guitar, images and a healthy sense of humor.

Lucy Wainwright Roche & Matt The Electrician

11/06/16 – Join us on Sunday, Nov. 6th for a 7PM show for a performance featuring Lucy Wainwright Roche and fellow touring musician Matt The Electrician! Tickets $18 Advance/$22 Door Lucy Wainwright Roche was born in NYC into two influential musical families (daughter of Loudon Wainwright III and Suzzy Roche). A full time touring musician, with an ever-expanding solo career, Lucy is known for her crystal clear voice, straightforward, humorous stage presence, and insightful, melodic songwriting. Her recordings include: 8 Songs, 8 More, Lucy and her brand new 2013 release CD called There’s a Last Time For Everything. Fairytale and Myth is the first collaboration between Lucy and her mother, Suzzy Roche and has been nominated for Best Singer/Songwriter Album of the Year by the Independent Music Awards. Matt The Electrician despite the name, is no longer an electrician, focusing instead on a music career that has spanned the course of two decades, a dozen records, and literally thousands of shows. It’s folk music for a modern age, rooted in lyrics that focus on the realities and challenges of the 21st century as opposed to, say, the old-school thrill of hopping trains. Throughout 2015 and 2016, he’s focusing on a string of 7-inch vinyl singles. Every new release will focus on collaborations with different artists who’ve crossed Matt’s path over the years, including the bluegrass band Wood & Wire (who appear on the very first installment of the vinyl series), experimental solo musician Little Brave, and others.
