This native New Yorker with the big, bluesy voice plays piano, harmonica and, when the mood strikes, accordion.Whether delivering standards or sing-alongs, dance music, gospel, Tom Waits or Bob Marley, Art Now entertains.
"I don't just tickle the ivories," says Art. Indeed, he presents stories, jokes, rib-tickling asides, getting people involved, smiling, mingling and ordering that extra drink.
Art was the lead singer with The Hanoi Swing Band in Vietnam and has performed in Thailand, throughout Europe and the Caribbean—wherever people want to party. An award-winning advertising writer/producer in the Big Apple, he's composed many songs, written a book about his experiences on the road,The World for a Song, and received a master's degree in theater.
He's taken his act to all sorts of venues across New York City and can handle any crowd.
