The Triad

We are happy to announce that The Triad Theater will be one of the first venues to reopen in NYC on April 2.  We are able to serve up to 50 people in our theater for your show and we also have the opportunity to produce a hybrid show (in-person audience combined with a Virtual Zoom Venue or Live Stream audience)   The Triad is working hard to bring everything back to pre-pandemic conditions, including staff, food, and beverage, great performances, and with the required Covid-19 safety protocols. If you are interested in booking your show for mid-Spring to early Fall, please send me an email asap to booktriadnyc@gmail.co

MetropolitanZoom will continue to serve those seeking a strictly virtual venue experience with their fans.  Learn more at metzoom.com

Covid-19 Memorial Event:  Sometime in mid-June, I’ll be producing a memorial event for those we have lost during the pandemic.  If you’d like to perform and/or send me names of artists and musicians who have lost their lives, please send to metropolitanzoom@gmail.com

Please continue to stay vigilant, stay safe, stay healthy, and stay around.  Big hugs to all of you.

“Keep doing great things!”
