BMI and Nashville comedy club Zanies will present Off The Record: Songs For Gilda’s Club tonight (Feb. 16) at 7:30 p.m. at Zanies. Bob DiPiero and Bobby Pinson will share some of their irreverent, humorous tracks. All proceeds from the event will be donated to Gilda’s Club Nashville.
“We’re excited to bring together our licensees and songwriters for a fun night,” says BMI’s Mark Mason, Executive Director, Writer-Publisher Relations. “Zanies is a longtime BMI licensee and we’re happy to host this entertaining evening for a worthy cause.”
Additional singer-songwriters slated to appear include Bruce Wallace, Kim Paige, Wynn Varble, Amanda Flynn, Phil Barton, Joe Denim, and Brandon Kinney. The show will be hosted by comedian and musician Andrew Dorfman.
“I am proud to be part of the ‘Off The Record’ show at Zanies for Gilda’s club. I think she would have loved the idea,” said BMI songwriter DiPiero. “This has inspired me to dig deep into the vault of my ‘THINGS YOU SHOULDN’T SING ABOUT’ collection. It’s gonna be big fun!”
“It’s an idea we’ve had for a long time. Zanies is all comedy and Nashville’s all music, so you put them together and it’s going to be really cool,” says Zanies owner Brian Dorfman. “Every musician wants to be a comedian and every comedian wants to be a musician. It’s going to be a fun night for a good cause.”
Tickets for the show are $15 and available on zanies.com or by phone at 615-269-0221. Doors open at 6 p.m.
