Mayor Bloomberg Invites Avi Wisnia to Perform at Private Event on June 15th

A man of many hats, Avi Wisnia was asked to perform at a private Jewish Heritage Event by Mayor Bloomberg at the Gracie Mansion on Tuesday, June 15th at 5 pm. The event is by invitation only, and is truly an honor to not only play for Mayor Bloomberg but to perform in a historical landmark estate. The release date for Wisnia's Something New is getting closer and closer, hitting shelves June 29.

Gracie Mansion has a beautiful history, built in 1799 in New York by Archibald Gracie, the grand house overlooks the East River. Gracie sold the home in 1823 and by 1896 the City of New York appropriated the estate and its 11 acres. According to their website, the house was restored in 2002 into the "People's House,: "With increased accessibility to the public and to City agencies. It has also been used to accommodate visiting officials and dignitaries, such as former guests First Lady Rosalynn Carter and President Nelson Mandela."

"The Gracie Mansion Conservancy is a private not-for-profit corporation established in 1981 to preserve, maintain and enhance Gracie Mansion - one of the oldest surviving wood structures in Manhattan and a member of The Historic House Trust. The Conservancy's mission is to raise funds to restore the historic structure and acquire furnishings that illustrate the rich history of New York; improve the surrounding landscape and gardens; and provide educational services, including publications and tours."

The Big Takeover's Jack Rabid, says of Wisnia, "Like a cross between Dr. John, Professor Longhair, Ben Folds, Joni Mitchell, and early Billy Joel. But his approach is refracted through the prism of Brazilian bossa nova, occasional acoustic guitar folk forays, and ‘70s singer/songwriter fare—“I Wish That I Could Stop Writing Songs About You” and “The Back of Your Hand” are especially Mitchell-esque, and “Goodnight” sounds like Art Garfunkel doing jazz—then sings with a smoothly smoky voice that recalls Elvis Costello and Joe Pernice both in sound and delivery.”
