In the summer of 2006 David Geist collaborated with club owner Michael O'Reilly to create Pranzo's highly acclaimed Geist Cabaret. Since its beginning, Geist Cabaret has hosted Tony award-winners Jason Robert Brown and Debbie Gravitte and such luminaries as Sally Kellerman, Kaye Ballard, and Chris Calloway. In addition, Geist Cabaret hosts workshops conducted by performers and instructors who are masters in their craft. David performs regularly at this beautiful music venue, located in the mountainous resort town of Santa Fe, New Mexico.

"Bravo to Pranzo! The sweet piano music of David Geist and the soothing tree house view from the upstairs make for one of Santa Fe's loveliest dining experiences. Broadway musician and composer David Geist entertains here several nights a week. In addition to selections from CATS - which he played more than 600 times on Broadway - we heard music from Stephen Sondheim, George Gershwin and Richard Rodgers played with passion, relaxed showmanship and audience participation. The meals are memorable and Geist's music makes the dining experience even more special."
