“A heady mix of stand-up comedy, music and conversation, Right NOW! is refreshingly self-aware and just the right amount of raw. Rebecca Vigil leads the house band and is both hilarious and an amazingly accomplished improvisational singer who complements Castiglia’s equally hilarious and incredibly quick-witted hosting style. No, really—I’ve rarely seen anyone as quick on their feet as Castiglia, and it works beautifully with the tone and pace of the show.” - A Women’s Thing

Erin and Her Cello
Erin and Her Cello
It all began one fateful Tuesday evening at a theater in New York City. Erin Hall, a cellist, was asked to compose and play her own music for the Naked Angels Dramatic Reading series, Tuesdays at Nine. Scared to compose solely for the cello, Erin opted to sing while accompanying herself a la pizzicato.

The result? A Career was born.

Pulling from her favorite influences– Peggy Lee, Cole Porter, and Serge Gainsbourg to name a few– Erin and Her Cello have quickly invaded music, comedy and theater stages throughout New York City. Their songs range from jazz, to blues, to French pop and 60′s girl group rock, all with a dash of humor. Catch Erin and Her Cello “solo” and they will loop harmonies into your hearts. Catch them with their full band, including piano, backup singers, horns, percussion and glockenspiel–will have you tapping your feet and singing along with “Sober” and “Walk of Fame.” In any performance, Erin and Her Cello will light up your night and leave you laughing out loud. (That’s right—laughing out loud.)

Winner, 2009 “Music is a Joke” Contest, Stand Up NY

“…the standout of the night is clearly Erin and her Cello – an NYC babe with a spunky personality and crystal clear voice who can rock a cello like it’s a Stratocaster guitar.”—philly.com.

Drawing on the everyday joys and indignations of life in New York City, Erin and Her Cello offer up songs that Strings Magazine calls “quirky, vivacious, and undeniably unique,” not to mention funny as hell! From Joe’s Pub to BAMCafe to Rockwood Music Hall, this kooky songstress and her stringed soul mate will unspool a night of original music that skillfully melds jazz, pop, comedy and blues.
