A Bronx Tale, One Man Show starring Chazz Palminteri

Known for A BRONX TALE, Chazz originally wrote the script for the stage and performed it as a one-man show in LA. One night Robert DeNiro walked in to see the show and as they say ”the rest is history.” He moved the production to New York, where it played for four sold-out months, earning him nominations for the New York Outer Critics Circle for acting and writing. While in NYC he completed the screenplay of A BRONX TALE and soon found himself starring opposite DeNiro, who chose the script for his directorial debut.

Gaelic Storm

After nearly two decades and more than 3,000 live shows, Gaelic Storm — the chart-topping, multi-national Celtic band — is looking sharper than ever with their latest release, Matching Sweaters. The new album mixes traditional Irish music with modern influences, creating a sound that's as wide-ranging as the band's own audience. From bluegrass fans and country cowboys to Deadheads, rock & rollers and Celtic fanatics, Gaelic Storm has built one of the most diverse fan bases in modern music. Matching Sweaters helps explain the broad appeal. Rooted in the songwriting of founding members Patrick Murphy and Steve Twigger, the album moves from drinking songs ("Another Stupid Drinking Song") to energetic instrumentals ("The Narwhaling Cheesehead") to rootsy pop/rockers ("Whiskeyed Up and Womaned Out"), gluing everything together with the spark and spirit of a band that's spent close to 20 years on the road.
