Church of Betty 30th Anniversary Concert


A fixture in the Downtown art scene since 1988, Chris Rael’s groundbreaking world pop orchestra CHURCH OF BETTY celebrates 30 years with a blowout concert for the ages at Drom. The show will mingle the group’s classic late-90s/early-00s lineup with the current ensemble of New York’s finest: Rael (voice, sitar), Deep Singh (tabla), Jon Feinberg (drums), Joe Quigley (bass), Marlon Cherry (guitar, bass), Rima Fand (violin), Pinky Weitzman (viola), Leah Coloff (cello), Claire de Brunner (bassoon), Katie Scheele (English horn), Chris Cochrane (guitar), Brian Geltner (drums) & Vlada Tomova (voice) will grace the stage in various combinations. Performance legend PENNY ARCADE will host the evening, which will feature a cameo guest appearance by STEW, the Tony-winning star of Broadway’s Passing Strange. 

Beloved NYC rockers LIFE IN A BLENDER, long-time friends of COB, will kick off the evening in style at 7:30. Join us for a dynamic, ecstatic, unforgettable night of India-flavored orchestral rock n roll, rich pop melodies, hard world grooves & a chorus of soaring voices. COB classics & brand new songs-about-now will blast from the stage with equal abandon. Find out why COB has been called “irresistible” by the New York Times, “brilliant” by Billboard & “musical and cultural fusion of the first order” by the Boston Herald. Headlines getting you down? This cavalcade of dazzling, passionate artists will lift you up!
