Coffeehouse gets in the groove

October 17, 2012 by  

In a couple of days’ time, the Bronxville Women’s Club will be hosting one of its coffeehouse series events, hosted by Sal Casabianca.

Casabianca is going to perform while also being the emcee. He has had a career in the music business for over 30 years with his material representing a mash-up of styles, including rock, jazz, blues, and folk. His most recent release is entitled ‘The Sound of Love’ and focuses on his love of music and songwriting.

Kelly Flint is the second of the three artists. She has not performed music since 2009 when she decided to focus on her career as an agent and to spend more time with her son Ben, who suffers from autism. Her songs are known to be witty and entertaining and she is a local favorite.

The final artist is David Ray, a famous folk performer. He has had his songs performed by artists like Shawn Colvin and Kathy Troccoli and produced by such names as Arif Mardin and Rick Wake. His early recordings are part of the permanent collection in the Smithsonian Center for Folklife and Cultural Heritage. His latest album, ‘Time Wounds All Heels’, is currently available on iTunes.

Admission is $5 and includes coffee, tea, and food, and people are welcome to bring their own drinks as well. Patrons are encouraged to donate money to the performing artists. The BWC will probably be hiring print companies to create promotional materials for this event to draw in patrons from nearby areas like Mt. Vernon or Mamaroneck.

The event will take place this coming Friday, October 19, and runs from 8:00 pm to 10:30 pm.
