Eric Yves Garcia



From over the sleek black hood of a beat-up baby grand, a piano player in a bar is tossed crumpled bills and told where to steer one stranger after another. The hour gets late and thick. The room wavers, grows filmy from liquor and melody. Couples clump to each other, warmed up and hand-delivered to the mood they asked to inhabit.
‘Pour Spirits’ continues where that leaves off… where does the pianist wind up once he hits the street again, and the garish signs are winking off, one by one? He chases after stories. This show is a daring, unfiltered glimpse into those nights, those faces, those thrills, mistakes and near misses. These stories are offered without compromise. Best of all, they’re even true.
 
After critically lauded performances in New York, London and Paris, award-winning performer Eric Yves Garcia (Margaret Whiting Award; Bistro Award for Singing Instrumentalist) is armed with the songs of Johnny Cash, Kris Kristofferson, the Avett Brothers, Billy Joel, Leonard Cohen, Ani DeFranco, Bob Dillon… as well as those of Jule Styne, Sinatra, Ellington and Nat King Cole… ‘Pour Spirits’ walks down those lean, up-to-no-good hours, when the world yawns itself awake, but that restless chase for something new goes on.
 
Directed by Lauren Fox, written by Eric Yves Garcia and joined by Peter Calo (guitar) and Ritt Henn (bass).

His debut solo show "One Night Standards" received rave reviews in the NY Times and Wall Street Journal, and he’s gone on to perform it in venues and clubs around the US and Europe.
