Melanie Fiona | Performance at 7:45 PM (Included with $375 Cocktail Benefit Ticket)
Offering a throwback sound to complement her rich voice, Melanie Fiona is a Grammy-winning R&B artist from Toronto, Ontario, Canada. Born Melanie Hall, she grew up in Toronto to Guyanese parents. Fiona developed a passion for music at an early age, influenced by groups and artists such as the Ronettes and Whitney Houston.
The Cutting Room | 44 E. 32nd Street
The Cutting Room builds on a decade of history that includes some of today's top performers - John Mayer, Lady Gaga, Sting, Sheryl Crow and David Bowie are just some of the artists that have graced the stage of the Cutting Room.
Created by original owner Steve Walter (Berklee Alumnus) and co-owner Chris Noth, the new Cutting Room continues the tradition of extraordinary performances and special moments, with a fresh take on what a rock club & lounge should feel like.
The Cutting Room is located at 44 E. 32nd Street, between Park Ave. and Madison Ave. The closest subway stop is 33rd Street (6 Train).
