Update on Block Party & Caffe Vivaldi

Filed under: Updates — Hope on August 17, 2010 @ 1:09 pm

Thank you so so much to those who made it out to my last two shows! I was able to hit up the East Village and the West Village in one weekend.

The City Light Church blizzock partaaaay (block party) on Saturday (East 7th ST, btwn 1st Ave and Ave A) was a lot of fun, the weather was PERFECT! We had a few technical issues as the keyboard was overheated and we had to switch it out mid song, but it’s amazing that there was even another available to us. The band held it together, tried and true. It still played out very nicely and it was a lot of fun. I also enjoyed watching a crazy man point in random directions and dance in odd motions around the stage during our set. That might have been my favorite part. I’ve included a photo of him here, in which he looks pretty calm and euphoric.

Block Party 8-14-10

The other performers all sounded really great. I enjoyed walking to the different tables and was very tempted to buy something from just about every one. I only ate two hot dogs but I definitely killed a cupcake from Butter Lane afterwards and then I went along to play with the kiddies while monitoring the sack race game. They were excited to be able to win free prizes. Good times.

I was blessed to get a last minute gig this past Sunday night (8/15) at Caffe Vivaldi (32 Jones st, in the West Village). It was such a neat place to play. When I arrived I was graced to hear the beautiful voice of Denitia Odigie (www.denitiaodigie.com/), her music is that of an edgy alternative soul feel. I liked her so much I bought a c.d. My set went really smoothly and it felt great! It was a nice little acoustic show: David Glickstein (guitar) and Jason Arce (keys and sax) killed it in such a beautiful way. It was good to play in such an intimate place to such a new crowd. I stayed after to hear Blessing Offor (www.myspace.com/blessingoffor) perform, which is always an a fun, soulful, jazzy treat. He played a lot of love songs, I admit I cried during one. I know…sap.

There will also be kids games, a moon bounce, several vendors and even more performances!!!
