BRBRCK - (Set time: 9:45 PM)
BRBRCK
The Scranton Gangster. The Mythical Rapping White Boy from Brooklyn. The Global Citizen.

This is BRBRCK.

Mike Berberich (aka BRBRCK) is a genre-bending hip hop songwriter based in Brooklyn, New York, where he writes and produces all of his own music. His catalogue spans an eclectic range of sounds, from 80s synthpop to roadhouse blues to progressive jazz. The narratives that BRBRCK crafts are equally diverse, from old school jams about stealing rhymes to commentary on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, written during his time spent in the West Bank and Jordan. His live shows are an explosion of energy, with a full band backing the MC as he weaves his witty sense of humor through a nonstop barrage of spitfire wordplay and brass-knuckle punchlines. In 2008, BRBRCK released "Scranton Gangster," his debut album, in part because of the extensive radio play his single "Scranton Gangster" received on Top 40 regional radio stations in his home state of Pennsylvania. Since then, he has penned over 200 songs and has collaborated with a diverse group of artists, including accomplished jazz bassist Felix Pastorius, Anna Morsett of the band "Yet Cut Breath," and dozens of local Brooklyn MCs and producers. BRBRCK is currently finishing production on his sophomore album, "Pardon the Languish," and plans to tour extensively in the US and abroad.
Randy Vera - (Set time: 8:45 PM)
Randy Vera
“A consummate professional, Randy gets the party going with a great voice, great musical chops and a genuinely fun personality to boot." The Boston Herald and we heartily agree ! Randy can simply play and sing anything from the Stones to the Police to Hendrix with his undoubted singing and guitar playing abilities complemented by a highly charismatic on-stage persona which never fails to delight and entertain. His own material, though, is where Randy really shines. "Its Who I Am", "I Win" and "Bigger Better Deal" bear comparison with the likes of Ryan Adams and even Gil Scott-Heron in places, and his album simply entitled "Randy Vera" is well worth a listen.
Passion Project - (Set time: 7:45 PM)
Passion Project
Passion project is a collective of musicians dedicated to writing, recording and performing powerful, evocative music.
