Greenwich Village Showcase Holiday Party

Featuring Rupert Wates and more, brought to you by your host, Jeremy Aaron

Rupert Wates' music is an eclectic mix of acoustic, melodic art/folk, with flavors of jazz, vaudeville and cabaret. He has released seven solo CDs. They have been very well reviewed in the online press and tracks from them have been played on radio all over the world. In addition, Wates' songs have been covered by other artists in the UK, Canada and the US.  No less than two full length tribute CDs to his material have been recorded: 'Crazy Puzzle' (2015) by Nashville-based performer Roxie Rogers, and 'Wide Open Heart' (July 2017) by Los Angeles vocalist Susan Kohler. Both these CDs were initiated and funded entirely by the artists themselves, and comprise exclusively songs taken from Rupert Wates' back catalog.

Rob Holzer

Veteran singer/songwriter Rob Holzer is enjoying his second year in residence at Caffe Vivaldi. Born and bred in New York, Rob brings a soulful and intimate writing style to his solo performance, stepping out of the band environment he's enjoyed through the years to dive deeper into his material as a solo artist. Playing songs he's written over the past 20+ years in and out of the city, his music tells the stories of love and loss, isolation and connection, and ultimately revelation in the thoroughly human experience of a life well-lived. Rob is often joined by some of the city's finest musicians for guest appearances. The vibe is laid back with a community feel and is quintessentially West Village ...more akin to a living room performance.

Pete Muller & Friends

Pete Muller & Friends

Pete Muller has been a resident artist at Caffe Vivaldi for over 10 years.

Some people know Muller as a pioneer in quant investing. Not as many know that, while he was emerging as a giant in the financial world, he was also busking in New York City subways, sharing his original and wholehearted songs with harried New York City commuters.

Muller, trained early in jazz improvisation and honing his skills hosting a songwriting circle in New York City, his music has captured the attention of such varied outlets as The New York Times and Forbes Magazine. Inspired by the likes of Shawn Colvin, Patty Griffin, and Elvis Costello, Pete's lyrics tend toward the honest and the straightforward and his latest album, Two Truths and a Lie, was produced by the Grammy-winning Rick DePofi.

Most recently, as a Berklee College of Music Trustee, Muller partnered with the music school and the City of New York to renovate and revitalize the storied Power Station Recording Studios in New York. With an emphasis on โ€œreinventingโ€ music education, the new facility will concentrate on continuing education for school-age children, teacher training, and providing internships to current Berklee students. 

Do better. Keep going. Muller's message is as simple as it is inspiring.
