He plays piano. He talks. He raps, complains and sometimes waffles....and now Gonzales is playing every Thursday in February at Joe's Pub in New York City.
Taking time out from putting the finishing touches on his new full-length, Ivory Tower (due out later this year), co-writing and producing the debut album from Beaston-fave, thecocknbullkid, and co-writing songs with Jarvis Cocker, NYC (and myself) are warmly welcoming Gonzales for a string of 4 dates in which he'll tease, tantalize and titillate audiences with his uniquely-talented flair.
Fresh from his Guinness World Record for longest live piano performance (27 hours, 3 minutes and 44 seconds) his piano battle with Andrew WK in New York, and a sold-out run at London’s La Pigalle Club, Paris-based pianist and showman Chilly Gonzales crosses the Atlantic for four Piano Talk Shows in New York City this February.
The self-proclaimed "Entertainist" will play every Thursday at Joe’s Pub, finally giving NYC a taste of his futuristic cabaret performance. Each show will feature a guest from Gonzo's extended musical family to keep the surprises coming.
