Marc Berger and the RIDE Band
“A well choreographed mix of deep country folk songs with touches of bluegrass, roots, Americana, a little spicy cajun, and even a little indie with an effects laced lead acoustic guitar. It's near impossible to sit through a set without feeling amusical kinship to something in every song, even if it's just the basic joy of watching a well seasoned band rip through every song as if it was the final number of their farewell tour.” -The Living Room, NYC
Marc is based out of NY and tours nationally. He's performed at Austin’s SXSW and the Kerrville Folk Festival, and opened shows for Bob Dylan and other national acts. His song "The Last One" was a staple of Richie Havens' concerts. Marc's critically acclaimed current release, RIDE, is a collection of cinematic songs capturing the vastness and romance of the American West.
At this special concert, the band will perform songs from RIDE along with selections from his in-the-works project FOLK MUSIC
(hint: it's not quite gonna sound the way you might think).
