Chef & Song is a community of patrons hiring the best local singers to perform in our favorite restaurants. (Then, we invite our friends to dinner.)
Chef & Song commissions singers to create original concert experiences intended solely for dining audiences. Then, we bring together communities of patrons who feature these artists, in our favorite restaurants.
Our musical dining clubs bolster and embolden a crossover of the culinary and performing arts that is robust, emotional, and intimate. Manifested in restaurants, bistros, pubs, and bars, this supper club culture has a unique footprint in local economies, creates the third places that anchor neighborhoods, and fosters shared experiences people carry with them for a lifetime.
In 2015, a group of friends started hiring local artists to perform in their favorite restaurants. In three evenings, the group welcomed 240 guests, hired a total of eight artists, and increased menu sales 25%.
Elevate musical performance in restaurants and gather people together to experience it.
