Woody Allen is coming to town

"In my house I'm the boss, my wife is just the decision maker."
Woody Allen

Woody Allen (born Allen Stewart Konigsberg; December 1, 1935) is an American screenwriter, director, actor, comedian, jazz musician, author, and playwright.

Allen developed a passion for music early on and is a celebrated jazz clarinetist. What began as a teenage avocation has led to regular public performances at various small venues in his hometown of Manhattan, with occasional appearances at various jazz festivals. Allen joined the Preservation Hall Jazz Band and the New Orleans Funeral Ragtime Orchestra in performances that provided the film score for his 1973 comedy Sleeper, and performed in a rare European tour in 1996, which became the subject of the documentary Wild Man Blues.

For over 35 years Woody Allen and his New Orleans Jazz Band have been entertaining the public with an exciting mix of music inspired by New Orleans. The band's sound is strongly linked to musicians that Woody Allen has loved and from whom he drew inspiration since his childhood, like the legendary Sidney Bechet, George Lewis, Johnny Dodds, Jimmie Noone and of course Louis Armstrong. Over the last 10 years the band has been playing every Monday at Manhattan's hotel: the Carlyle. An appointment Woody Allen has missed only once, when he won an Oscar.
