Jonny Meyers & E77 Documentary Screening and show
Saturday, March 11, 2017
Jackson Heights, Queens
Somewhere in the mix of all these facebook conversations and plethora of images comes a picture you just can't ignore, eh? That's me and my brother from another mother, Afzal, co-owner of Espresso 77.
Many folks I know are aware that I've been playing a long stading gig at my beloved home, Espresso 77. I was the first musician to play there back in 2007, singing and strumming every Sunday night in a quiet corner, no PA system and constant vocal power battles with the Espresso machine. The gig evolved into much more than I could expect. I've made friends for life, had countless musicial opportunities that sprung from this gig, saw babies grow into full blown kids there, and I eventually came to curating the music space, having a hand in the vision of the expanded space we now celebrate. Currently, we host many diverse musicians and have become a place to be in our lovely neighborhood of Jackson Heights.
Independent filmmaker and close neighbor, Boris Cifuentes, finds everything interesting and likes to ask questions. So naturally, he took an interest in what we are doing at 77, and what a regular gig like this one is like for me, the cafe and the people that frequent the place. From this came a short film that we made together.
On Saturday March 11th, we are going to show the film at the cafe and I'll be performing live music before and after the film. We invite anyone who wants to come, of course, but if you have been at our shows, or you frequent the cafe regularly, or you are one of the many friends and family I've made through my gigs at E77, please make the time to join us if you can. I'll be bringing the family in tow, so you know it's a family friendly event!
After the event, I'll share with you a link for the film (which if you search hard enough, you'll find), but we'd love for you to watch it with us. Here's the info:

A beautiful, old-fashioned songster night that features different songwriters each week. Folks come to listen, bar patrons are encouraged to keep their voices down during the music, and past guests are some of the best in and around New York City. It's that kind of thing. Come support me and check out this cool happening in the East Village.
