Richie Williams: A Valentine's Open Mic!
This show will feature two special guests, Jo Marchese and Mary Lovelace, followed by an open Mic for all of the brunch participants. Richie will host this gift of song. Come one, come all, but dont forget to get your tickets early to this much, anticipated event. Bring a love song in your key please and if you dont sing, just bring your ears! Is your figure a work of art? Is your mouth a little tart? When you open it to sing we will all take heart! Looking forward to hearing some of Manhattans most melodious voices for this very special Valentines soiree.
Richie William's returns to Pangea, this time, sharing the mic! As a Poet, Singer and Jazz Historian, Richie seems to carry the entire American Songbook in his hip pocket and is often referred to as The downtown Bobby Short. Richie's voice and style echo the mellow tones of both Nat and his brother Freddie Cole. This, coupled with his charismatic charm, funny-bone good humor and off the cuff style, often serve up a fun filled and edgy performance that leaves The Song Book Smiling. And this same upbeat wit has spilled over of late, to a possible second career as an MC?

Downtown's intimate supper-club Pangea is the ultimate in alt, playing home to some of the best in alt cabaret. The New York Times recently called it a bohemian oasis not unlike the fabled Max's Kansas City from days gone by."
