Brooklyn-based, Venezuelan-born Migguel Anggelo, returns to Joe’s Pub tonight with a brand new evening of theatrical music and poetic storytelling. A dynamic singer and dancer known for his electric stage performances , Anggelo cut his teeth in the worlds of musical theater and opera, and brings his larger-than-life emotions to this intimate performance. Backed by a group of virtuosic musicians, Migguel imagines the passions and struggles of great visual artists as a metaphor for the real life struggle of new and old immigrants striving to be heard. Through his original songs, reinterpreted works by Latin American greats like Agustin Lara and Astor Piazzolla, as well as American Pop Music, Migguel Anggelo shares a personal story that is as joyous and touching as it is unflinchingly honest.

Flow State - a contemporary music ensemble, Tonight at 9pm!
Flow State defies categorization, fusing classical, jazz and rock idioms to produce a sound that is polished yet ever-changing. Ben Brody founded the group in 2013 as a derivation of his EP of solo guitar music of the same name. The EP Flow State generated buzz throughout the modern, psychedelic, and new-music scenes, and was featured on WNYC’s program New Sounds Listeners Poll top 10 best releases of 2013. Shortly after the release of the EP, Brody teamed up with bassist Nick Lenchner to form the ensemble which includes saxophonists Bill Todd and Alison Shearer; electric keyboardist Jonathan Evers. Flow State has had a number of noteworthy performances and collaborations, including the premier of my “Three Episodes for Orchestra” with The Chelsea Symphony. Their performance at Mister Rogers Studio, presented by The Hoover Dam Collective, was described as “undeniably captivating”-(Event Source Connection) Flow State is excited for its future projects, particularly those that connect its ethos to current events
