This was the first time I've seen Ms. Lavin in person, and she was wonderful!! A fun show that can appeal to just about anyone. The venue was good...not many bad seats in the house. Some areas were a little crowded together. It's best to valet...continued

My husband and I enjoyed the show, me more so than him. The guitar playing was excellent, the lyrics were funny, and I like the audience participation. The setting has a very nice ambiance, and the food was good, but expensive.

Christine's songs are funny and poignant. She even had a bunch of us come on stage and sing in the finale. Plus I love watching her twirl batons!

Lavin’s “Regretting What I Said to You When You Called Me 11:00 On a Friday Morning to Tell Me that at 1:00 Friday Afternoon You’re Gonna Leave Your Office, Go Downstairs, Hail a Cab to Go Out to the Airport to Catch a Plane to Go Skiing in the Alps for Two Weeks, Not that I Wanted to Go With You, I Wasn’t Able to Leave Town, I’m Not a Very Good Skier, I Couldn’t Expect You to Pay My Way, But After Going Out With You for Three Years I DON’T Like Surprises!!

Christine Lavin is a singer/songwriter/guitarist/recording artist living in New York. She has recorded 20 solo albums [latest: _Cold Pizza For Breakfast _on Yellow Tail Records]. She has also produced nine compilation CDs showcasing the work of dozens of songwriters whose work she loves — one of them, the food-themed _One Meat Ball, _includes a 96-page cookbook that Christine edited.

For four years she hosted “Slipped Disks” on xm satellite radio, playing CDs slipped to her backstage by compatriots, and is the occasional guest host for the City Folk Sunday Breakfast Show on WFUV-FM at Fordham University. She also writes freelance for various publications (including T_he Washington Post, The St. Petersburg Times, The Performing Songwriter_, and Delta “Sky” Magazine). Her song “Amoeba Hop” has been turned into a science/music book by illustrator Betsy Franco Feeney (Puddle Jump Press), received the stamp of approval from The International Society of Protistologists, and a “Best Book Award” from the American Association for The Advancement of Science.

The new book The Pluto Files, The Rise and Fall of America’s Favorite Planet, written by Neil deGrasse Tyson, head of the Hayden Planetarium in NYC, includes the complete lyrics to Christine’s song “Planet X,” which details Pluto’s history and planetary status debate in rhyme. The book is published by W.W. Norton. And Christine got a “D” in Astronomy in college (see kids? You CAN make up for the mistakes of your youth).

Christine performs concerts all over the US, Canada, and points beyond, and hosts knitting circles backstage prior to each show. Songs of hers have been performed by artists as diverse as Broadway stars Betty Buckley, Sutton Foster, and David Burnham, cabaret divas Andrea Marcovicci, Barbara Brussell, and Colleen McHugh, the college a cappella Dartmouth Decibelles, and The Accidentals, winners of the National Harmony Sweepstakes championship.
