Live From Gramercy Park – Sxip Shirey
Live From Gramercy Park is a continuing concert series featuring evenings of eclectic entertainment that celebrate the best of New York City’s cultural landscape, in the tradition of The Players, the historic club where the series is presented. Curated and hosted by Emmy Award winning composer/performer Lance Horne, “Live From Gramercy Park” is dedicated to presenting celebrated music, theater and cabaret stars as well as introducing dynamic rising talent from around the world.
Poppies, penny whistles, bells, beasts and improv. A lover of novelty and self-professed rebel, Sxip Shirey describes what he does as “telling stories with sound” —intentionally cutting through the BS of what is considered “good” in the music world. Reflecting on the idea of the "child mind”, his process is one of "bumbling to a spontaneous eruption" of the avant-garde. Expect the unexpected, as he will rock your concept of what music is.

A yellow bird, a herr-icane, some heavy drumming and a distorted guitar. Brother-sister team Emma & The Hungry Truth is an audible cocktail reminiscent of Kate Bush with primal rhythms, heartbreaking lyrics, and epic harmonies rolled into an explosive sound that’s all their own.
Live From Gramercy Park – Karine Plantadit
Visual heart cleaning, spontaneous collaboration, a solo bass, and a negligee. Alvin Ailey dancer and Broadway performer Karine Plantadit reflects on the "art form of loving.” Her embodied poetry spins us through rhyming rhythms of love and life. In her unique French fashion, she spells out the secrets of overcoming ones own narcissism, encouraging us to dig for that which makes us alive while challenging us to give to another.
