Laurie Krauz and the Daryl Kojak Octet return for one very special night with their widely acclaimed and Bistro Award-winning Carole King tribute, “Tapestry Rewoven.” Join the band as they kickoff the Campaign to Record the award-winning "Tapestry Rewoven!"
“Tapestry Rewoven” is a thrilling jazz, blues and R&B-infused re-imagining of the Carole King classic, “Tapestry.” Heralded as “brilliant,” “genius” and “a hurricane of entertainment,” the tribute show presents novel interpretations of the iconic original in its entirety and has been touted for being fresh, new and musically inventive — while still being reverent to the brilliance of the original. Experience “Tapestry Rewoven” and Feel the Earth Move!

“... it could be a masterwork not unlike her idol's.” David Finkle, Back Stage
"Three decades after its release, jazz thunderbolts, Laurie Krauz and Daryl Kojak are reweaving the soft rock of Carole King's Tapestry, and the audience is feeling the earth move.... Tapestry Rewoven is a unique work of contemporary jazz.... Although it is not yet a CD, Tapestry Rewoven promises to deliver its own stamp of 'classic.'" Elizabeth Ahlfors, Cabaret Scenes
“From the moment the show began, the audience completely came on board for the ride. And what a ride it was.” Ligia Fernandez, Broadway Café Society
