Whether it’s crossing the Brooklyn Bridge or traversing the Hudson River, the quest of getting to New York has been immortalized in song many times over. With help from the dynamic dancing duo The Uptown Belles, Dandy Wellington and his band will explore the songs that hail the five boroughs as a destination number one.

This program is inspired by our centennial exhibition, This Is New York: 100 Years of the City in Art and Pop Culture.

Sets at 1:30pm & 2:45pm

About Dandy Wellington:
Dandy Wellington is a bandleader, entertainer, event producer, and creative consultant, born-and-raised in Harlem, New York. Influenced by the style and skill of classic entertainers of the past but with his feet planted in the present, it’s no surprise that he has made a name for himself across the globe. From producing stylish events all over New York to performances in St. Petersburg, London, and Sydney, Dandy solidifies himself as not only an impeccably dressed man-about-town, but a bonafide man-of-the-world. Dandy’s signature panache and eye for detail has earned him features in The Financial Times, Country Living, The Robb Report, Vogue Magazine, and various other outlets renowned for their taste and sophistication.
