Vaudevisuals Interview with Tammy Faye Starlite – NICO @ Joe’s Pub

Tammy Faye Starlite as NICO at Joe's Pub
I saw Nico perform with the Velvet Underground at Andy Warhol’s  “Exploding Plastic Inevitable” on St. Marks Place back in the last 60’s. Above the Dom and to later become the “Electric Circus“. The Velvet Underground with Nico were the house band for Andy’s club.

Tammy Faye Starlite has brought this memory back to life! What an amazing ‘channeling’ of the solemn voiced Nico. At Joe’s Pub on Sunday December 15th Tammy Faye brought NICO back to the stage.

I had time with Tammy after the show to ask a few questions about Nico’s effect on her growing up and this new show. Also posted is a video excerpt from the show at Joe’s Pub.

The wonderfully talented musicians that performed with Tammy are:

Dave Dunton: Piano

Rich Feridun: Electric Guitar

Keith Hartel: Acoustic Guitar/Bass

Craig Hoek: Saxophone, flute

Ron Metz: Drums

The show was directed by David Schweizer
