Kaltenbach presents "An Evening with Russ"
Director David Kaltenbach traveled to Manhattan to meet and film famous artist Russ Elliott. On a chilly evening in December the Copacabana opened the doors to present Elliott's "Oasis" mural, a 40' custom mural at the supper club. Also displayed were Russ's personal collection of the Copa. Soothing music permeated through the soul, lushed with friendship and excellent food.
Mr. Elliott has worked with John Juliano, owner of the Copa, for 45 years. John this evening had time for an interview and explained how the story and song of Barry Manilow came about. Another interesting story was the night Desi Arnez asked to play one evening and ended up staying for 17 years. Rich in history and entertainment the fourth location of the Copa is a must-stop-by when in the City.
