They are a rainbow of talent, known to many as the best damn band in New York City. Capable of showcasing a variety of music, the Cafe Wha? House Band entertains any judging ear. Song to song, musician, the power of melody is underlined and highlighted by individual passions. Every band member possesses an allure that stands on its own and compliments another. Forget about in one night, but in the matter of one set, The Wha? Band takes you through generations of music and the emotions they evoke. Reggae and rock, R&B and soul, these guys can cover any Bob Marley, Doors, Radiohead or Beatles tune; brilliantly they own it like their own. Playing outside the formulated charts, this fervent band is complete with climatic guitar solos, intoxicating bass lines, and vocals that will take you places.

Wednesday through Sunday the aisles of the Cafe Wha? are absolutely jammed packed with a party, there's a thick chemisty between the band and the audience. More often than not, the band calls guest musicians to the stage. These sometimes soul and sometimes Latin entertainers are sure to get the chair dancers off their booty. If you're one of those who like that spot right in front of the stage, don't be surprised if you're brought up to shake it!
