Live at the Flatiron Room
Last night I performed at the Flatiron Room in New York City, it’s a very beautiful whiskey lounge which perfectly captures the vibe of Hollywood film noir era of the 1940’s and 50’s. They have live jazz every night and over 500 different brands of whiskey from all over the world. I was surprised to find out that they also have a French whiskey (I didn’t even know such a thing existed), which I was delighted to try. It tasted softer than most whiskeys I’ve had in my life and had very pleasant notes of smoked honey, which comes from the fact that it is finished in Cognac barrels: that’s what gives it its unique taste! It’s called Brenne and you should definitely try it.
My guitarist Michael Valeanu returned from Paris just in time to hop off the plane, into a cab and head towards the Flatiron Room for our concert. After a twelve hour plane ride, I consider him a hero. Below is a picture of the Avalon boys performing instrumentals while I was idly sipping my gimlet.
