Singers, songwriters, musicians and actors gathered for a fun evening tonite at The City Winery in New York City to show off their talents for a fundraiser benefiting The Enough Project, an organization that advocates gun safety. City Winery even sold a special wine called “Enough” to help raise money for this event. Michael Dorf, founder, owner and CEO of The City Winery, in a heartfelt speech, committed his efforts to the cause including his venue located on Pier 26 of Hudson River Park. Saturday Night Live music director, Eli Brueggemann, assembled a house band that effectively backed up and musically integrated with the performers of different genres. Technical issues were seamlessly executed.
The highlight of the evening was Dionne Warwick singing “What the World Needs Now is Love” accompanied by Paul Schaefer. Other performers included John Cameron Mitchell, Amanda Palmer, DJ Logic, Resistance Revival Chorus, Gracie Lawrence, Tash Neal, Dar Williams, Ira Kaplan (of Yo La Tengo), Dida Pelled, and Loudon Wainwright III.
