David Bromberg

“The reason man created stringed instruments. David touched them with a lover’s fingers and they moaned that true love right back at him. Wood and wire and flesh spoke.”—Jerry Jeff Walker on David Bromberg

David Bromberg is a master’s master, a string wizard whose virtuosity led him to be a first-call, “hired gun” guitarist for recording sessions, ultimately playing on hundreds of records by artists including Bob Dylan (New Morning, Self Portrait, Dylan), Link Wray, the Eagles, Ringo Starr, Willie Nelson, and Carly Simon.

He’s played with everyone and he’s toured everywhere. He can lead a raucous big band or hold an audience silent with a solo acoustic blues. Influenced by Pete Seeger and the Weavers and, through them, Reverend Gary Davis, he discovered Big Bill Broonzy, Muddy Waters and the Chicago blues. At the same time, he was listening to Lester Flatt and Earl Scruggs, Bill Monroe, and Doc Watson. Over time, Bromberg’s range of material, based in the folk and blues idioms, grew to encompass all of these influences: bluegrass, ragtime, country, and ethnic music.

After years of recording and touring, Bromberg and his wife, Nancy, decided to leave performing and moved to Wilmington, Delaware, where they became part of the city’s artist-in-residence program and where he could establish David Bromberg Fine Violins, a retail store and repair shop for high-quality instruments. Frequent participation in the city’s weekly jam sessions helped rekindle Bromberg’s desire to make music again, as did the encouragement of fellow musicians Chris Hillman (the Byrds, Desert Rose Band, Flying Burrito Brothers) and bluegrass wizard Herb Pedersen. So, in 2007, he returned to recording and touring.

His newest album, released in July 2011, features Bromberg collaborating with and being produced by friends such as John Hiatt, Levon Helm, Los Lobos, Tim O’Brien, Vince Gill, Widespread Panic, Dr. John, Keb’ Mo’, and Linda Ronstadt. The San Francisco Examiner described the album as “a delightful romp through familiar terrain for David, terrain that he navigates with the expertise and energy of a Formula 500 driver.”

“Great session players easily cross genres, and guitarist Bromberg is one of the great ones.”— Bill Beutler, Boston Globe

“His impassioned playing and surly vocals summon the spirits of Howlin’ Wolf and Muddy Waters.”—Lee Zimmerman, M: Music & Musicians

“The ever-humble Bromberg continues to astound us with his mastery.”—Jim Hynes, Elmore Magazine

About:

David Wilcox

Cleveland-born David Wilcox, considered a “songwriter's songwriter,” has been covered by artists such as k.d. lang. But as a performer and storyteller Wilcox holds audiences rapt with nothing more than a single guitar, thoroughly written songs, a fearless ability to mine the depths of human emotions of joy, sorrow and everything in between, and all tempered by a quick and wry wit. His lyrical insight is matched by a smooth baritone voice, virtuosic guitar chops, and creative open tunings, giving him a range and tenderness rare in folk music.

Catie Curtis

Catie Curtis defies categorization: pop, rock, alternative country, indie, folk? The Boston-area “folk rock goddess” (The New Yorker) has played everywhere from Lilith Fair to the White House. She released her eleventh album, Stretch Limousine On Fire, late last year. With her Aspire to Inspire Endowment providing musical instruments to seven youth-oriented music organizations, a busy schedule officiating nontraditional weddings, and the fulltime job of raising two daughters with her partner, Curtis is stretching her own boundaries to ensure that, despite the rough edges in life, there will always be those moments of beauty.

David Berkeley is an evocative singer-songwriter with, "Emotional story-telling lyrics, charismatic stage presence, and hilarious anecdotes" (June Wulff, THE BOSTON GLOBE). Dubbed, “A musical poet” by the SAN FRANCISCO CHRONICLE, David was named one of WXPN's “Artists to Watch,” wrote his song “Fire Sign” for the CBS series Without a Trace and went on to perform on World Café, Mountain Stage, XM’s Loft Sessions, WFUV with John Platt and radio and television stations across the country. He received ASCAP’s Johnny Mercer Songwriter Award and, perhaps most notably, performed on PRI’s ‘This American Life’, telling the awkward and hilarious story of a private serenade he was hired to perform to help a guy win back an ex-girlfriend.

Good For The Jews: Putting The Ha! In Hanukkah Tour feat. Rob Tannenbaum + David Fagin

Good For The Jews: Putting The Ha! In Hanukkah Tour feat. Rob Tannenbaum + David Fagin

They've appeared on "The Today Show" and on NPR (twice, even), and have played in rock clubs and synagogues, at the Boston Jewish Film Festival and the Brown University Hillel, the Kansas City JCC and the historic Sixth & I Synagogue in D.C., as well as the Leeds (U.K.) International Jewish Arts Festival. They have an especially strong appeal with young Jews, though our following extends to anyone with an unorthodox sense of humor.

Rob was named one of "New York's Best Emerging Jewish Artists" by the Museum of Jewish Heritage. Time Out New York featured him in a cover story on "The New Super Jews," The New York Times included him in an article on "the Jewish hipster," and Heeb magazine elected him to their "Heeb 100," a list of "young, smart and innovative" Jews in the arts.

As evidence of Good For the Jews' fresh approach to Jewish music, we've amassed a huge press kit, where the words "hilarious" and "Jon Stewart" frequently appear.

 

Good For The Jews are a hilarious musical duo from NYC who have been profiled on NPR and appeared on "The Today Show."

Mixing music and comedy in an irreverent and unorthodox way, they sing about Passover, Jewish girls, and relatives who live in Florida.

Their vow: "No songs about dreidels. And no Israeli folk-dancing." Hear their songs at GoodForTheJews.net or MySpace.com/GoodForTheJews.

The words "hilarious" and "Jon Stewart" appear frequently in articles written about them:

"This is not your father's Judaism: Jews with an edge and proud of it." -Baltimore Jewish Times

"A hilarious musical act. Don't miss them." -National Public Radio

"The voice of the Jewish hipster movement." -UR Chicago

"Good For The Jews' have been called 'hilarious' from coast to coast." -Philadelphia Weekly

"Like Sarah Silverman and Jon Stewart, this show is wickedly hilarious." -Village Voice
