        — THE SKINNY–
        Our goal during this unprecedented time is to help bring people together from all over the world who share common interests; and provide musicians & performers the opportunity to share their craft with like minded people passionate about music & dance. The QUARANTINE SPEAKEASY now live streams every other Saturday from NYC averaging hundreds of views from over a dozen countries and half the US states.

        Eileen’s note: Time’s are tough for everyone, but if you do have time to watch, please make sure you kick in to support these efforts. There is a lot of time and production effort that goes in to shooting these videos.
