Melvin Vines Kortet

Featuring Various Artist

Every Week
There is something extraordinary going on at St. Nicks Pub. First of all this is indeed a night club in Harlem. Second the audience is aggresive about talking loud and having  a good time no matter what.   

The first site you'll see around 9:30 pm is an attractive Japanese woman  (Kay Mori) perched on a stool in the middle of the stage with a guitar who's  beatiful voice shatters the place with Japenese and American folk songs while everyone sings along.

So you think thats unique? Well when the night continues after Melvin Vines Kortet has played a number or two and  the Special guest is invited up and that's where another unique phenomonom occurs.
