Comedian Big Jay Oakerson has a new full length album “An American Storyteller” on Comedy Central Records. Oakerson’s story-based style of stand-up comedy got its start after a series of dead-end jobs, including driving strippers and escorts around his hometown of Philly. Now the New York City resident has made comedy his full-time job, flooring audiences with true tales of odd threesomes and bizarre sexual encounters. “An American Storyteller,” recorded at Stand-Up New York, is an one-hour onslaught of unbridled awesomeness and raunchy rock n’ roll hilarity.
Oakerson is recognized from many of his television appearances, most recently on the Late Show with Jimmy Fallon and his starring role on the hit IFC show “Z-Rock,” where he received critical acclaim for his performance as “Neil,” the sexually ambiguous owner of a NYC rock club. His television credits include Comedy Central’s “Premium Blend, ” “Comedy Central Presents” and “Tough Crowd with Colin Quinn, ” along with multiple appearances on BET’s “Comic View” and HBO’s “P. Diddy’s Bad Boys of Comedy.”
The past summers for Jay have been busy ones — he performed stand-up comedy for over a quarter of a million screaming rock n’ roll fans by hosting Jager’s Korn tour and Rock Star Energy Drink’s Mayhem Fest. Jay wowed for a fourth time at Montreal’s Just for Laughs Comedy Festival, performing on (and closing) the “Nasty Show” — a festival favorite — and took his performance to a whole new level with the debut of his solo show “The American Storyteller.” Last year he was invited to JFL Sydney to perform at The Sydney Opera House. Jay has been a guest on WTF with Marc Maron and “The Artie Lange Show.” He is a fan favorite on “Ron & Fez” on Sirius XM and his own podcast “Legion of Skanks” is available on itunes.

Named "a rising star violinist" by Downbeat magazine, 2011 Nightlife Award winner Aaron Weinstein is quickly earning a reputation as one of the finest jazz violinists of his generation. Aaron and his trio-Tedd Firth on piano and Tom Hubbard on bass-will make their Metropolitan Room debut together in a new show entitled "Have Strings, Will Swing!" Selections from the show include "I Won't Dance," "Someone To Watch Over Me," "A Sleepin' Bee" and "Cheek to Cheek." As a featured soloist, Aaron has performed at Jazz at Lincoln Center, Carnegie Hall, Wolftrap, the Blue Note, Birdland, Iridium, and abroad at festivals in England, France, Switzerland and Israel. He has performed with an array of jazz icons, including Les Paul, Bucky Pizzarelli (who calls Aaron "a perfect musician"), John Pizzarelli, Scott Hamilton, and Dick Hyman, as well as the late NY Pops founder/conductor Skitch Henderson. With the release of his Arbors Record debut, A Handful of Stars (called "the rebirth of hot jazz violin" by Hentoff), Aaron became the youngest jazz musician to have recorded as leader for this prestigious traditional jazz label. His newest release, Blue Too, is a duo with John Pizzarelli. "A sensational talent in the tradition of Stéphane Grappelli and Joe Venuti, Mr. Weinstein...is an inventive melodic improviser who doesn't go in for flashy gymnastic flourishes. He turned "Just One of Those Things" into a mini-marathon of swinging endurance, at the end of which you were left a little breathless." - Stephen Holden, The New York Times "The funniest guy with a fiddle since the hilarious Jack Benny." -David Finkle, Theatermania "...so fierily invigorating that you have to move to his music." -Nat Hentoff, Wall Street Journal
