Description

Videotaping the Official Oral History of St. Nick’s Pub

Featuring the Sugar Hill Quartet and a Jam Session


On March 22, 2018, the famed Harlem nightspot, St. Nick’s Pub, burned down.


For decades the Sugar Hill Quartet was the house band for the Monday night jam sessions.


While We Are Still Here will be taping the oral histories of the members of SHQ—Patience Higgins, Marcus Persiani, and David F. Gibson—as well as Bill Saxton, who was also a Pub presence, and other musicians, patrons, and some of the proprietors, for a film.


Bill’s Place is a former speakeasy, where Billie Holiday had her first gig in New York City.


If you would like to share you oral history of St. Nick’s Pub, call 929-266-3952.
