"Erin Hall is silly. She's also a self-professed "kook" who got dropped on her head as a baby. Now Hall is using her experiences and distinctive sense of humor to create a type of performance art that almost defies description. Hall plays the cello… Her songs cross many genres… Her lyrics run the gamut between the sublime and the ridiculous, but she draws audiences with her ability to describe ordinary experiences in ways that are both poignant and funny.” - Back Stage
Four short years ago, Erin and Her Cello began charming audiences with their hilarious and heartbreaking new songs. From childhood tragedy at the zoo, scary checkout girls at Duane Reade, to the joys and pitfalls of life in NYC-- the music of Erin and Her Cello will leave you laughing out loud and humming her tunes of disastrous woe.
This dynamic, young trio comprised of beat-boxing flutist Greg Patillo; cellist Eric Stephenson; and upright bassist Peter Seymour are exciting audiences with their energy and innovative style. PROJECT organically fuses classical, jazz, and hip-hop styles in their live show, providing an unexpected musical experience for audiences that is not to be missed.

Joe's Pub at The Public Theater debuted in October 1998 and has quickly became one of New York City's most celebrated and in-demand showcase venues for live music and performance. With its genre-blind booking and vast diversity of interests, the stage at Joe's Pub gives voice to a world of varied and stellar artists.
With impeccable sound and lights, the warm and intimate candlelit atmosphere of Joe's Pub is filled with plush velvet couches, softly glowing lucite tables and gorgeously understated architecture. Joe’s Pub is open seven days a week, regularly hosting as many as three shows a day.
