Leave a comment
Kenneth O’Connor says I shall play some tunes for you lovelies Tues evening. I swear there’s this warm glow forever surrounding that place…you should come see it for yourself.

The 11th St. Bar
Songs from the album, Angel Sings The Blues. And other beautiful chaos.
With Brian Sanders: The sweetest spirit in NYC playing Cello

These peculiar days have been filled of politics and death.
I’m not sure of the state of things, really.

When it feels like nothing is left inside you just keep singing still.

Tues Jan 31st
8:50-9:45pm
The 11th St. Bar

Hi everyone!
 
This year has been filled with a lot of new projects and I’m honored to be working with such incredible writers and actors that have woven my music into their material and performance! Writer and Director, Jack Feldstein and I will be putting on a bit of a Storytelling/Cabaret reading at the wonderful Duplex Cabaret Theater in NYC’s Greenwich Village. Do come out for a night of storytelling, silliness and a bit of my bluesy, Caba-Rock singing. It would be fantastic to see all of you there!
 
A Wondrous Tale About Emma Brooks
 

A Wondrous Tale About Emma Brooks combines the exquisite songs of Rivky, musically directed by David Seamon and narration written and performed by Jack Feldstein. With music and story, the tale of sixteen year old Emma Brooks unfolds, as she jumps into mad rivers and meets memorable characters along the way. Some of them are friendly; some of them are sly. All of them lead her to a most curious, wondrous adventure—and, ultimately, into self discovery.

Hey, how’s about a Christmas eve festivus party with some friends, at some local Brooklyn bar this Thursday. And afterward, We’ll feed you all some Chulent and potato kugel with your beer, y’know to wash a few of those jingles off. Yes, I’ll bring some candy canes and belated dreidel playing.
I’ll share some Chanukah memories from when I was kid, like, this one time, when it was freezing outside and I got my tongue stuck to this massive, silver Menorah in the schoolyard and -oy, what a scene, like out of a movie, I mean, all those kids, just staring and, oh, the Rabbi wasn’t pleased. I was a little ferklempt, when suddenly I realized my body started to morph… into something…strange…this hideous, frosty, Ice Beetle, let me tell you. What a Shmetamorphasis that was…
Lori Leifer, Mimi, Rivky, Jack Feldstein:
Dreidels, candy canes, stories, poems, friends and -oh maybe a tune thrown in from the Chassid Jinglers..
When:
This Thurs, Dec 24th, 8-9:45ishpm
(We’ll do our best not to follow Jewish standard time…’Tis Christmas eve, after all).

If you’re feeling reeeeally creative with food, find singers/musical groups who have animal band names…Maybe even go a little word crazy!! Soup (Snoop) Doggy Dog…Jelly Phish? You can write the name inside a folded piece of paper placed beside your art piece so that people can guess who!

Use any ingredients as long as their edible! Make it fancy, simple or just plain silly.

A Creative Stew of Art and Music.

Rivky will sing some of her original compositions, read some of her poems & present some of her paintings.

Rivky Grossman is a self-taught artist, Pianist, singer and writer who is thankful to have discovered a way to uniquely & unexpectedly blend all of her skills into a curious routine of creative exploration, bringing her passions to life, while living with the challenges of mental illness and fighting its stigma. Her artwork has been shown in NYC & The Hamptons & is currently exhibiting in Endicott College in Massachusetts. Some works, like the controversial piece, “Teffilin Nude” and “Haiku Swaying In The Sun”, have been sold to art collectors, Heidi Rigney amongst them. As an artist, Rivky primarily works with pastel, acrylic and collage. You can find Rivky blogging about her latest art projects, including “The Positivity Project”, (ask her about it!).  For current artwork you can visit http://fountaingallerynyc.org/ .
