This gig was our farewell to this New York City establishment and former home of the recording studio Media Sound which spanned twenty years of American music history. It was regarded by many artists as their favorite place to record. The great acoustics stem from the historic space which was originally the site of the Manhattan Baptist Church. Our record producer, Mike Sosna www.sosproductions.com recorded sessions at Media two decades ago. A partial list of artists who recorded at Media is as follows:
John Lennon, Jimi Hendrix, Aretha Franklin, Stevie Wonder, The Rolling Stones, George Harrison, Guns and Roses
Barbra Streisand, Frank Sinatra, Aerosmith, Luther Vandross, James Taylor, Billy Joel, The Isley Brothers,
The Ramones, Kool & The Gang, Barry Manilow, Sister Sledge, Donald Fagen, The Grateful Dead, and Lou Reed.
Le Bar Bat continued the tradition of great music created from the vibe of this legendary space.
Le Bar Bat became our home base for performing live over the past 2 years.
We will miss this rich music room.
