Night Gallery arose from the dark gothic corners of New York City with a few songs and a dream. A dream that a great band could be formed from a collection of original songs which was written over the years beginning in 1986. The first song was called "Funeral Parlor" which was written from an experience Kitty had as a child. In a dream about this experience which occurred many years before, Kitty was inspired to create the bass line which was heard in her dream and remembered upon waking. Night Gallery did several recordings in the 90's, one song called "Sara" made it on a 1992 compilation album called "Hear No Evil, Volume II" which can still be found. Night Galley played many New York City venues over the following three years which culminated with their farewell gig at the infamous "Limelight". After the break-up of Night Gallery in 1995. More than a decade later in 2005, Kitty was inspired to revive "Night Gallery" with a fresh new line-up of musicians, recorded all the songs in 2013 and put out an album named "Inside Out" which can be purchased on CD Baby.
