54 Below

A Nonprofit Cabaret Venue

Join us at 54 Below for an enchanting evening featuring the songs of Happy Hour: The Songs of Carter McPherson! Set in your neighborhood bar, Happy Hour: a Song Cycle examines the problems of eleven bar patrons, each with an issue and solution as distinct as they are. Happy Hour runs the musical gamut. Whether you fancy a classic torch song, ‘50s rock, an ‘80s Bond theme, or the soundtrack to your favorite French film, there’s something on the menu for everybody.

Carter McPherson, composer and lyricist for Happy Hour, is an Atlanta native and proud alumnus of The University of Oklahoma. As a composer and lyricist, he helped launch the “OUMT Playground,” a student works initiative, with a reading of Look at the Stars, for which he wrote the book, music, and lyrics. Additionally, Carter served as assistant music director for the Pops Chorale in Oklahoma City Philharmonic’s The Christmas Show with Rachel York. Through the support of multiple grants at The University of Oklahoma, Happy Hour was recorded as a series of music videos in the spring of 2023.

Now you’ll see eleven of the newest and most exciting bar patrons NYC has to offer for Happy Hour’s inaugural live performance. So come join us for Happy Hour– you’re in great company. Cheers! This concert is produced and directed by Devi Peot and Carter McPherson (Music Director/Composer/Lyricist).
