Michael Dorf, founder of the iconic Knitting Factory music venue in New York, became one of the earliest pioneers of innovative live music in the 1990s.
He later launched a wine-making facility in Manhattan for patrons who could also have dinner in a cozy three-hundred-seat venue. They could watch concerts by artists such as Elvis Costello, Steve Earle, and Esperanza Spalding.
Michael Dorf discovered that his City Winery concept worked beautifully so he expanded it into a national network of clubs. His venues are sold out nearly every night, from Boston to Nashville. Patrons are eager for the visceral and sensory experiences he offers them.
