in the Thrust Theater
Witty Cindy is a musical comedy duo from the windy city that combines the class and elegance of the piano with the authenticity and earthiness of the African djembe drum. Their act blends ultra-catchy, graceful melodies about the nature of existence with powerful musical and harmonic precision that you’ll be singing in your head for days to come. Witty Cindy leaves no stones unturned in search of the answers to life’s greatest questions. Like, who the hell is Witty Cindy?
This music comedy show is what you get if Ben Folds and Flight of the Concords had a lovechild. Griffo sings, plays ukulele, guitar and piano, backed up by cellist Leyla I. Royale and Ivan Pyzow on Trumpet. Their performances are “both toe-tapping and rib-tickling” (Chicago Sun Times).
