The featured artists on Thursday are:
November 10 Performance:
John Pray is a vocalist, songwriter, and guitarist from New Rochelle. After attending the Westchester Conservatory of Music, he proceeded with a long and diverse musical life. Along with live concert performances and studio work, he has been a partner in recording, songwriting, and production with Steve Katz of Blood, Sweat, and Tears, the Grammy and Emmy nominee Peter Denenberg, and the Grammy winner Rory Young. His more than a decade of volunteering time and musical talent led him to write, produce, record, and then donate a collection of songs to hospice organizations entitled Behind Sacred Walls.
Odane Whilby is a singer songwriter from New Rochelle. His brand of acoustic soul is a blend of stirring lyrics and gospel-infused rock. He is founder and curator of the Bronx-based artist showcases The Ology & The Bronx Music Project.
Sal Casabianca is a singer songwriter and guitar player. His music is an eclectic blend of rock, folk, jazz, and blues. He has been playing and writing music for over 30 years, from playing bars in Queens to his band being signed to Columbia Records, from playing the Mall of America, to playing guitar for a couple of drag queens. Following this varied history, Sal decided that it would be best to go solo and be self-produced. He enjoys wearing the many hats in this process and believes it’s all about the journey. Sal can be found performing in local venues, including his duties in hosting an enduring regional singer songwriter night in the New York City area.
