But I'm actually referring to Broadway Bullet, which is a pretty cool group that does pod casts which increase a show's exposure immensely! If you are in the industry and haven't gotten a chance to work with them, they're great people. And on February 8th, you can meet them and see a great Cabaret event!
Broadway Bullet is extending an invite to Small Pond to host the February 8th show. If you come to the show and say "Small Pond" at the door, you get in for $10 instead of $15! Details are below. This a great opportunity to network, meet us, see a great show, and meet the team at Broadway Bullet. I hope you'll join us!

Broadway Bullet Spotlight

This new album, THIS PART OF TOWN, was made with Connecticut based bluegrass musician/arranger/producer, Dick Neal. The sound they came up with is a funky or bluesy bluegrass.
8:00pm – Spotlight on Joe Iconis -a Long Island native and a grad of the great NYU/Tisch Graduate Musical Theater Writing Program. He is the proud recipient of a 2007 Ed Kleban Award, a 2006 Jonathan Larson Award, a Backstage Bistro Award, and a 1992 Garden City Elementary School Vocal Music Award. Joe proudly rips off from The Ramones, Dolly Parton, Weezer, The Rolling Stones, and many of his other idols. He is greatly inspired by Robert Altman movies, Dunkin Donuts coffee, and the visciously talented gang of actors/singers/musicians he frequently surrounds himself with. You never know exactly what to expect with Joe live, except that it will be a lot of fun!
