Parking is a challenge, we found a meter although the kiosk was not working. Went across the street to another and it worked. The meter runs to 10pm on a weeknight so watch the clock!

More Information


Banda Magda boasts an intricate, tropical and eclectic sound, drawing from world chansons infused in South American grooves with a twist of jazz.

Exoticism, lyricism, impeccable feet-stomping groove, subtlety and depth of emotion. Inspired by music legends such as Serge Gainsbourg, Tom Jobim, The Beatles, and Pink Martini, “Magda” and the “Banda” create a unique aural experience at the crossroads of their diverse musical backgrounds, from France and Greece to Japan and Argentina.

On stage, Banda Magda has the image of an intense compilation of vibraphone, guitar, bass, vocals, accordion, piano and a cataclysmic overload of percussion surrounding the charismatic Magda Giannikou, founder, leader and singer of this hip, mod and ultimately fantastic group.

Chef d’orcheste, singer, composer, producer, arranger, pianist and accordionist Magda Giannikou comes from Athens, Greece, lives in New York, and writes songs in French, with South American musical influences (!!!). And one could easily be skeptical about how one could seamlessly blend all those elements until they hear the result on stage.

Formed in New York in 2010, Banda Magda appear regularly in venues all over New York City, blending French repertoire, original music and songs from all over the world, arranged in the Banda Magda way and sung in English, Italian, Portuguese, Spanish, Greek and Japanese.
