In 2018/2019, Woody, Alix, and Richard (the Food of Love trio) performed "BAD FOR YOU!" at 53 Above in Manhattan, and from there took it to the famed Cornelia Street Cafe in Greenwich Village. Cornelia Street liked it so much, they asked us back to perform on New Year's Eve! Sadly, Cornelia Street Cafe was battling their landlord (and lost), -- the whole place closed down New Year's Day. :( We loved performing there the past few years (one of our favorites!), and hope to work with them when they move to a new venue (TBD). We then went back to 53 Above with "BAD FOR YOU!" for several performances as part of the new Featured Artist Series produced by Jason Ellis.
This show was, and is, a ton of fun! A repertoire filled with wonderful songs about drinking, drugs, high cholesterol foods, gambling, illict sex, and falling in love with the wrong people. All those things we know darn well are bad for us, but in a perverse way often make life worth living. Go figure.

The Food of Love
The Food of Love is a trio who've been singing around NYC for several years.
Our performers, Alix Elias, Richard Marshall, and Woody Regan are seasoned veterans
who've performed on Broadway, off-Broadway, on TV, and in film.
Our "Bad For You" show includes lots of songs about things we love, but know darn well aren't good for us.
Terrific songs which celebrate our love/hate attitude toward alcohol, drugs, sex, gambling, high cholesterol food,
falling in love with the wrong person, etc. Some obscure, some new, some antique,
some hidden (what's "Wacky Dust"?), -- all GREAT fun!
The Food of Love is available for your entertainment, bookings, and performances anywhere.
BAD FOR YOU!
