They couldn't wait to have us back.

The Irresponsibles Return to The Delancey. 

 

New York Magazine: "The Delancey is that rare breed — a shockingly nice nightclub without the velvet-rope hassle. And this three-level playground provides a variety of spaces for disparate Lower East Side elements to mix it up. During summer months, the rooftop is the main draw."
 

 

Time Out Magazine: "In terms of rooftops, this is about as close as you're gonna get that tropical island trip you've been planning with your boo. Watch out for the palm trees and lean back in a comfy lounge chair with your margarita."

 

 

Fodor's Travel: "From the palm-studded rooftop deck (heated in wintertime) down to the basement, where noisy rock and punk bands hold court, the multifaceted Delancey at the foot of the Williamsburg Bridge strikes an invigorating balance between classy and trashy."

"Redding's talent had a great deal in common with the talent of an actor. Each song is an example of voice control for the purpose of expressiveness. The notes are really nothing. Much less was his ability related to the creation of pleasant or harmonious sounds. He would never hold a clear note the way Sam Cooke would do. That kind of thing had nothing to do with his genius. The things he could do with his voice were amazing, but none of the effects he could achieve were gratuitous. Viewed in this light, every one of his songs is a masterpiece. The effects are remarkable because they are so perfectly communicative. The excitement Redding provided comes from seeing the ingredients of humanity communicated so lucidly. It's possible to understand him completely and implicitly. It is impressive that the human mind is capable of such subtle communication, and this is the satisfaction he provides."

- Christopher Bello, 1968

 

==========================================================

 

"Basically, I like any music that remains simple and I feel this is the formula that makes 'soul music' successful. When any music form becomes cluttered and/or complicated you lose the average listener's ear. There is nothing more beautiful than a simple blues tune. There is beauty in simplicity whether you are talking about architecture, art or music."

- Otis Redding
