David Yazbek, becoming a household theatre name with his The Full Monty, began his known musical life with a pop band, and it's with his band - the self-titled “Yazbek” - that he'll play Nov. 27 at New York City's Knitting Factory.

Currently performing as a six-piece unit, “Yazbek” originally featured three players - David on piano and guitar with a bass player and a drummer. At Knitting Factory, they won't play any Full Monty but will play some new Yazbeck songs. For those who think "Big Ass Rock" and "Big Black Man" were just his theatre-style writing - have no fear. Yazbeck's previous albums have included tunes titled "Schmuck in a Vacuum," "Here Come the Ducks," "Tool Calendar Girl" and "Fight the One Armed Man."

Yazbek has produced for XTZ, Space Hog and the late Tito Puente, while opening as a singer-songwriter for the acts Verve Pipe, the Samples and Ben Folds Five. His albums include "The Laughing Man," named Pop Album of the Year by NAIRD/AFIM, and 1998's "Tock."

Tickets are $16 in advance, $18 at the door. The Knitting Factory is located at 74 Leonard Street and is on the web at http://www.knittingfactory.com. David Yazbek is on the web at http://davidyazbek.com.
