The monthly Music Series and the Caribbean Nights Series

This monthly Music Series is being introduced and hosted by Horse Trade/Frigid NY and Music Event Producer Salli Squitieri bringing both up and coming and renowned performing artists of all genres from near and far to these two historically rich, funky chic, unique east village flavored theatres. 

 

With so many of the smaller venues disappearing, this series not only helps to fill a void by creating a new forum for musicians, but likewise offers the regional clientele the experience of an off the beaten path, nostalgic and intimate music sojourn. 

 

Many of the performers who are eager to be part of this series and help kick start it are specifically customizing their shows and designing performances just for this series.

 

As part of the Music Series, which showcases a variety of styles from folk, blues, jazz, funk etc., Salli implemented a Caribbean Nights Segment as a means to create a new forum and multimedia event enabling Caribbean voices and music to be heard. This series will also include nearby regions on the out skirts of the Caribbean.

 

This Series is taking the music series to another aspect, where not only would the artist be presented, but likewise a means to present the richness and beauty of each artist’s homeland.  The Caribbean Night Series includes a video/slide presentation of the artist’s country, sometimes a supporting performer, an interview with the artist(s), full performance, and after the show free door prize drawings and meet and greet with artst.

 

There are limited Caribbean music venues and many of them have disappeared as well. Further, there is so much emerging talent with limited opportunities to be heard.  And we hope to be able to present a new forum for Caribbean Artists to be heard...and a forum to help enhance awareness of what treasures the Caribbean truly holds...

 

Award Winning Vincentian Soca Artist-MaddZart (accompanied by the “_King Band”) was the founding artist who launched the series and shook the stage leaving the audience wanting more. The Caribbean Nights has become a popular affair and is in high demand with artists. The Caribbean Nights Series has since included Soca, Reggae, Garifuna Music, Hip Hop, Rap, Calypso and so much more showcasing artists from throughout the Caribbean.

 

The Caribbean Nights Series has expanded to shows on the 2nd Friday of each month at Under St Marks Theater and the 3rd Thursday of each month at the Kraine Theater,

 

The regular Music Series takes place on various nights throughout each month and performers range from folk, blues, jazz, avant-garde, etc.

 

We are continually exploring the plethora of talent and working to present a multicultural and abundant array of styles from Blues, Folk, Jazz, Avant-garde, Americana, Soca and more for an exciting and memorable experience for all age groups and all walks of life.

 

This is an up close and personal affair for true music aficionados.

 

Attendance is  the key to success for this fun and smokin’ event o please join us in support of these artists, the theater and the efforts of all involved.
