New York, NY – VIZA is bringing its unique brand of hard fusion rock to the east coast for a special show in New York this May. The performance will be hosted at New York City’s Highline Ballroom on Saturday, May 14, 2011. As Viza is in the midst of recording its highly anticipated album, “Carnivalia,” at Frank Zappa’s Utility Muffin Research Kitchen studios in Hollywood, the band looks forward to upcoming shows across the country and in Europe this summer.
“The band is super excited about what’s in store for 2011,” stated songwriter, oud player and Philadelphia native Andrew Kzirian. “Ever since our return from our international tour last summer, we have been super motivated to write new music, grow as a group, and continue connecting with fans,” he added. Kzirian, who typically sports Philadelphia athletic gear during Viza shows such as Phillies hats and Flyers jerseys (courtesy of Manny the Actor), hopes those in the City of Brotherly Love will make the trip up to the Big Apple. “It’s a short drive up the Turnpike for what promises to be an amazing show,” Kzirian remarked.
The show will take place on Saturday, May 14 at the Highline Ballroom, located at 431 W. 16th Street, New York, NY 10011, (Between 9th and 10th Avenue) Doors open at 6 pm and tickets are on sale for $12 in advance, and $15 at the door.
