“I feel extremely fortunate to be able to sing and play music for a living. I wanna keep it going for as long as possible. It’s good for my soul, and I love knowing that what I create can have a real impact on people.” -Ari Hest

“Ari Hest was the 3rd ever concert at Seven Steps Up. We love that he continues to add us as a stop during tours. The single biggest reason Ari plays here is because he is an incredible songwriter who was on our personal playlists long before we ever had a venue.” says venue co-owner, Michelle Hanks.
