Multi-Instrumentalist Roots Pioneer David Bromberg comes to the Flying Monkey on June 15th.
Plymouth, NH. The Flying Monkey Performance Center is excited to present high-octane multi-instrumentalist David Bromberg with his quartet on Friday, June 15th at 7:30pm. David tours rarely, and reputedly only for the joy of sharing a stage with his favorite musicians. Local up-and-coming roots sensation Occidental Gypsy will open the night. Tickets for this concert start at $35.
After spending several years off the road, David -- and his extraordinary guitar picking and exceptional stylistic range -- are back on the live concert scene. As The New York Times has noted, “he has such control of his audience that he can, at one moment, hold it in his hand with a tender, touching yet funny anecdotal song, and then set it romping and stomping with a raucous bit of raunch. He is electrifying.”
A virtuoso on guitar, mandolin and dobro as well as a talented songwriter, David Bromberg has amassed a cult following since the Greenwich Village folk revival of the mid-60’s. His wry vocals and exceptional guitar-picking skills can be heard on more than 15 albums as a leader and more than 100 as a sideman, including recordings with Tom Paxton, Chubby Checker and Ringo Starr. Following a 20-year hiatus during which he studied violin-making, Bromberg now performs and records alternately as a solo artist, and with the David Bromberg Quartet, the David Bromberg Big Band and as a member of Angel Band’s back-up ensemble. Bromberg’s first studio album in 17 years, Try Me One More Time (2007), was nominated for a Grammy® Award for Best Traditional Folk Album. His most recent release, Live New York City 1982 (2008), features a live performance with his quartet. Bromberg currently owns and operates a violin repair shop in Wilmington, Delaware.
Occidental Gypsy is pioneering the sound of Gypsy Pop. Their combination of uptempo, high-energy rhythms of Gypsy music, melded with the catchy hooks of Pop music promises to deliver a thrilling experience to concert goers.
