Sometimes you happen to be in the right place at the right time and when that happens it's great to have and audio recording device with you. February 15, 2014 at Path Cafe, NYC, was one of those times for me because I got to do sound for and record Sterling Ryhne who's style and voice is up there with the best of the best.
If you like Macy Gray, Phoebe Snow and Amy Winehouse you're really going to dig this unforgetable set from Sterling Ryhne!
Publio Delgado Live at Path Cafe-1/11/14 I recently hosted a show at Path Cafe, NYC, where the music is always to notch, but someting extraordinary happened recently. Publio Delgado took the stage and started playing the guitar-wait, not just playing the guitar, more like melding with the guitar. His style is truly unique and truly awesome (in the real sense of that word). It was perhaps the first time every single person in the room was fixed or transfixed on Publio's guitar and hands. No one was talking or texting. Amazing!
The first time I saw Lindsay Dragan perform was behind a drum kit with The Sky Captains of Industry and I knew right away that she was a great drummer and singer. I had no idea how amazing she is as a singer/songwriter and perfomer until I saw her do a solo acoustic set.This set is truly Fabulous and will certainly make the cut for "The Best of The Path Cafe" show on Friggin Fabulous Radio!
Jim Petrie is one of the amazing regular performers at Path Cafe, NYC. Listeners get lost in his bluesy, folky, funky brand of Americana. His songs invoke images of diverse and wonderful landscapes and tell the stories of sea captains, lovers and hitch hikers.
Dan Lipton mixes pretty jazz chords with an almost Country/Western twangy vocal style and his wife, Leslie, who usually joins him on stage has an angelic voice!Their harmonies and Fabulous and they are an amazing couple on and off the stage. They blew the room away at Path Cafe, NYC, recently and I'm hoping they'll be back very soon!
When I first heard about James Margolis I figured that he would be a solid, creative performer, but once I opened up the mic pot for him at Path Cafe I was blown away! His deep, soulful voice, incredible guitar style and sublime song writing style had me hooked!
James does a fabulous and varied set including his own tunes and those of other super talented NYC singer/songwriters such as Niall Connolly, EW Harris, Ryan Morgan, Casey Black and more!
Twiddlin' Thumbs is a folky, twangy husband and wife team that I met a few months back at the Friggin Fabulous Open Mic in Jersey City. They are living proof that folk music is alive and well in these here parts!
The Path Cafe, 131 Christopher Street, NYC, is an awewome music venue that serves some of the best coffee, beer, wine, food and desserts in Greenwich Village. They have live acoustic music every night and they get some of the most talented singer/sonwriters and bands by the New York Tri-State area!

I fell in love with the songs of Dogs on Main Street while doing sound at Path Cafe, NYC, and recently had the pleasure to play at Ceol in Brooklyn with Mac Rowe. If you like Nebraska era Bruce Springsteen, Bill Janovitz, The Gaslight Anthem and Bob Dylan, you're going also going to fall in love with Dogs on Main Street. Like Dogs on Facebook:

In 1966, Randy Burns was dropped off on the corner of Bleecker and MacDougal Street, with a bag over his shoulder and a guitar in his hand…ready for anything Randy had gotten his start a year earlier at The Exit Coffeehouse in New Haven, Connecticut but soon left to join the Urban Folk Revival in Greenwich Village.
Terry Haman is one of my favorite singer/songwriters in the NYC Area. He is one of the few performers that I consider truly original.Terry is always writing and always giging somewhere in the NYC/North Jersey area. Enjoy this live set from the Friggin Fabulous Showcase at Path Cafe, NYC, which happens every second and fourth Tuesday at 7pm.
Justin Storer and Sarah Mitchell were kind enough to play the Friggin Fabulous Showcase at Path Cafe, NYC, which happens every second and fourth Tuesday of every month! More amazing performances to come!
