A Truly Solo Bobby Previte Show

Drummer Bobby Previte has confirmed a series of unique solo shows. Bobby Previte’s Diorama will be a solo drum concert performed for one listener at a time. According to the drummer’s camp, “Each listener enters a small room and sits directly behind the drum set. Unaware of their identity, Previte plays an improvised piece for his solo audience member. The strange, heightened intimacy of the interaction and the expansive, panoramic view of Lower Manhattan from the space create a concert of extremes and oppositions.”

The performances will take place on the 31st floor of New York’s 14 Wall Street. This landmark site was formerly the private residence of legendary financier J.P. Morgan, and most recently existed as a French bar and restaurant.

“I have wanted to play a concert in this format for 25 years: no applause, no words, anonymity between performer and audience member,” Previte said in a statement.

RSVP required. Please email to reserve a 15-minute appointment. Admission is free.
