Inspired by love, broken hearts, sex, alcohol, and the tricks the universe plays. Emme is a multi-faceted singer/songwriter who works in almost all genres and roles—she doesn't always play what she writes or write what she plays.
For this event she encourages you to bring your angst and flannel and travel back to the glory days of 1995...

After moving to Georgia with her Jewish Mother from the Bronx and spending what felt like an eternity in the South, Ali moved to New York as soon as she was out of school! After doing several Off-Broadway shows and landing numerous callbacks for mothers and quirky best friends, Ali decided to change it up a bit and write her own shows. Her original show, "Sin Stops Here", premiered at Joe's Pub and landed her one of five Artist in Residence spots for 2015! She and her band, The Heroes of Happy Hour, can be found mixing big band vibes with old favorites and most importantly, lots of laughs. www.aligrieb.com
