We are excited for the First Annual Funny Songs Fest to kick off tomorrow night.  Organizer Jessica Delfino has been working around the clock with her team, securing cheap drinks, fun treats for goodie bags and over 50 talented musical comedians at some great venues here on the LES.

Delfino, who lives in the neighborhood, has been playing ukelele and singing “dirty folk” for almost a decade.  She told us she wanted to hold the event here because she is “focusing on developing the comedy music community,” and wanted those developments to enhance and benefit her neighbors and local community, as well.  “Plus,” she said,  “it’s just a few blocks away from my apartment, so I can party hard and stumble home with ease.”
