Studio Café takes place on Saturday, November 3, 2018, at the Pelham Art Center. VIP entry is at 6:00PM and General Admission is at 7:00PM.  This fundraising event brings together community to support art, education and free outreach programs. With live music, performance art, live art demos, signature food from local restaurants, and hot music this event is not to be missed.

Live music with exceptional jazz guitarist Dan Haedicke and vocals by Sarah Rayani begin the evening. This contemporary jazz duo combines classic jazz with a contemporary twist and covers some old school hip hop. Sarah Rayani uses sultry sounds of classic jazz and soul and makes it cooler.  DJ Dick at Nite – aka Dick Burroughs the Brooklyn based Writer, DJ, Curator, and TV Personality will be spinning funky sounds to keep this party hopping.

There will be live art models being rendered by our key teaching artists at the Pelham Art Center such as Frank Guida, Donna Ross, and JC English.
