The Night Owls / Brunch at Pangea
THE NIGHT OWLS incorporate TV theme songs from the 60s (Room 222, Courtship of Eddie's Father, Get Smart); 70s (MASH, Sesame Street, Sanford and Son); 80s (Hill Street Blues, Golden Girls); and present era (House of Cards, Phineas and Ferb, Orange is the New Black, The Wire) into a set that mixes jazz standards with covers of pop and R&B tunes (Under My Thumb, Sunday Morning, Daydream Believer).
This will be a fun and musical brunch (with a side order of nostalgia)!
THE NIGHT OWLS are Lee Feldman (piano), Ben Gallina (bass) and David Berger (drums).
Lee Feldman is known for both his piano playing and songwriting. He was signed to Mercury Records and has put out four critically acclaimed albums. "Lee Feldman plays the piano in just the dry, subtle, understated manner that his dry, subtle, understatedly hilarious songs call for." Atlantic Monthly "Reviving a bit of Brill Building artistry, this New York piano man makes you think and swoon and hum all at once." The Village Voice
Ben Gallina's bass playing has made it's way onto film, television, and radio and has brought him to the stages of Lincoln Center, Broadway, and over half of the Fifty Nifty United States. As a Producer, Ben has released two albums of original compositions/arrangements that have been described as "cinematic in scope" (NYC Jazz Record) and praised for having "smart tunes with great ensemble writing" (All Music Guide).
David Berger is a drummer from St. Louis, MO. by way of New Orleans. His drumming can be heard on recent release: 'I'm Hip' by Ana Gasteyer, and the soon to be released album from Amy Helm & the Handsome Strangers, where he shared duties with the legendary drummer, Levon Helm. Berger has also recently backed American Jazz & Blues vocalists Cassandra Wilson & Catharine Russell, American Soul singer William Bell, children's music composer/performer Elizabeth Mitchell, Steely Dan front man Donald Fagan & downtown luminary, Bridget Everett's: Rock Bottom!
