Review for An Evening on the Battery:

What do you get when you take a retired Pentecostal preacher, a fiddle player with a mohawk and a self professed liar from the River City Sessions, stir them up and put them on stage in front of a big old piece of art and ask them to interpret it?  An evening of storytelling and music inspired by John Quidor's Peter Stuyvesant Watching the Festivities on the Battery, with local author, musician, and humorist, Michael Gray, accompanied by the musicians Robert Cyphers of And The Devil Makes Four along with Joe Stryker from Strung Like a Horse.  

Tickets will be available at the door; free for members, $9.95 for non-members.

I’ve been sprayed by champagne in the Dallas Cowboys’ dressing room after they won the Super Bowl. I’ve stood both at the top and at the bottom of the Grand Canyon. I’ve snorkeled in the Great Exuma islands, learned to snow ski in the Austrian Alps, and ... (click for more)
