We in the entertainment/service industry, like all of you, live well by including live music as a part of our ongoing regimen. The last nine months we’ve all been dealing with unprecedented challenges during the COVID pandemic exacerbated by many mixed messages regarding the rules and protocols regarding operating live music venues.
It’s with an abundance of concern and caution for the safety of our staff and guests that we’re postponing the Piano Bar Live! Spotlight at Ribbon 72 music series that would have kicked off Tuesday December 8 with Hilary Kole and John Dimartino. Ribbon 72 remains open with strictly adherence to all the NYC GUIDELINES regarding indoor dining at 25% capacity as well as for pick-up and delivery.
