Bios:

Bruce Weber's No Chance Ensemble has been performing since the fall of 1996. Their pieces range from edgy, insightful dram-entary to moody psycho-rantasy covering topics from love, relationships, family and violence to nature, god, death, and spirituality. Members of the group featured in today's performance are poets Bob Hart and Bruce Weber, and the fiction writer and painter Joanne Pagano Weber. The ensemble has been directed for the past several years by Joanne, and has performed regularly at venues in New York City and the surrounding area, including Dixon Place, the St. Marks Poetry Project, and HERE theatre.

Bruce Weber is the author of five published books of poetry, These Poems are Not Pretty (Miami: Palmetto Press, 1992), How the Poem Died (New York: Linear Arts, 1998), Poetic Justice (New York: Ikon Press, 2004), The First Time I Had Sex with T. S. Eliot (New York: Venom Press, 2004), and the just released The Break-up of My First Marriage (Rogue Scholars Press). Bruce's work has appeared in numerous magazines, as well as in several anthologies, including Up is Up, But So Is Down: Downtown Writings, 1978-1992 (New York: New York University, 2006), and Riverine: An Anthology of Hudson Valley Writers (New Paltz, New York: Codhill Press, 2007). He has performed regularly in the tri-state area, both alone and with his performance group, Bruce Weber's No Chance Ensemble, which has produced the CD Let's Dine Like Jack Johnson Tonight (members.aol/com/ncensemble). He is the producer of the long running Alternative New Year's Day Spoken Word/Performance Extravaganza. By day, Bruce is Senior Curator at the National Academy Museum, and splits his time between his homes in New York City and Saugerties, New York.

Joanne Pagano Weber is a writer of fiction who is also a visual artist and performer. Among other places her work has been published in Word Thursdays Anthology, Curare, and Breukelen Magazine, and performed on Let's Dine Like Jack Johnson Tonight, a CD by The No Chance Ensemble, of which she is a member and director. She has performed at numerous venues in New York, including The Knitting Factory and Dixon Place with the ensemble, or as a featured writer.

Bob Hart took a poetry class in high school. Some time later his memory was wiped. Years afterward he found himself an old man with a fund of work written during years of his forgetfulness, work which he considers could be much improved by intelligence and imagination. He is the author of two books, and has been published in numerous magazines.
