Buster Poindexter (aka David Johansen, NY Dolls) returns to Café Carlyle, September 29-October 10
(Published: September 14, 2015)

ROCK ICON BUSTER POINDEXTER (AKA DAVID JOHANSEN, NY DOLLS) RETURNS TO CAFÉ CARLYLE WITH A BRAND NEW SHOW, SEPTEMBER 29-OCTOBER 10, 2015

As a founding member of the New York Dolls and in a prolific solo career, David Johansen has been a seminal force in rock and roll, influencing countless singers and bands to this day. Buster Poindexter, Johansen's celebrated alter ego showcases his elegant crooning through R&B ballads. As Poindexter, his previous engagements have been sellouts and he has become one of the most revered artists to grace Café Carlyle. In Buster's own words: "I like to do a show that's a ‘total entertainment package' with great songs and a lot of laughter, it's my vision of what great New York cabaret should be. In the all-new show I'm bringing to Café Carlyle, I'll be singing songs by Chet Baker, Cab Calloway, Mel Tormé, John Lee Hooker, Bobby Rydell, some Broadway, Slim Gaillard, even a Sinatra just to name a few. Playing The Carlyle gives me the opportunity to perform some of the myriad of songs and musical styles that I love and to tell a few jokes. In the Coney Island of my mind, this is the show I'd like to see!" In what continues to become a Café tradition, the audience favorite returns to Café Carlyle for a two-week residency, September 29-October 10.

Stephen Holden of The New York Times praised his recent Café Carlyle performance: "Buster Poindexter aims dead center at a novelty tradition that traverses musical styles and eras and embraces blues, jazz, doo-wop, rumba and calypso. He rang the bell every time." Additionally, Theatermania called Buster Poindexter "one the of the most satisfying musical acts you're likely to encounter in New York." The Hollywood Reporter wrote, Johansen "seems to be born for a room as intimate as this one."

Performances will take place Tuesday through Saturday. Reservations made by phone at 212.744.1600 are $75 ($125 for premium seating, $55 for bar seating) Tuesday-Thursday; and $90 ($140 for premium seating, $75 for bar seating) on Friday and Saturday. Reservations made online at www.ticketweb.com are $80 ($135 for premium seating) Tuesday-Thursday; and $90 ($150 for premium seating) on Friday and Saturday. Café Carlyle is located in The Carlyle, A Rosewood Hotel (35 East 76th Street, at Madison Avenue).

At The Carlyle, Poindexter (vocals, harmonica) will be joined by Brian Koonin (guitar), Richard Hammond (upright bass) and Ray Grappone (drums).
