What You'll Get
Charismatic Greenwich Village, industrial Flatiron District, and grungy Lower East Side. Walk the pavements where Bob Dylan, Miles Davis, Jaco Pastorius, Hiram Bullock, David Bowie, Jimi Hendrix, Allen Ginsburg, Jack Kerouac, and Roy Lichtenstein congregated to inspire and create. Legends of folk, jazz, funk, beat poetry, and pop art gravitated towards the industrial charm of Manhattan below 14th Street. Home to famous ‘Electric Lady Land Studios' as well as intimate, no-frills music clubs.
Expect the Unexpected! Three venues with an optional fourth for the night-owls. Type of venues vary according to the program available.
Subway and easy walking between venues.
Sometimes, there may be a line outside a venue. We try to avoid these lines but sometimes they are inevitable. You will meet many musicians while waiting in line.
Our venues do not have kitchens and we recommend to eat before the tour. There will be a chance between venues to pick up a slice of pizza at one of NYC’s famous establishments.
