BYOB is encouraged!For this winter show, Goldman has invited three talented performers, including two local Metuchen favorites to share their original music in round-robin style (made famous by Nashville's Bluebird Cafe, in which each artist sings a song and then passes on the next performer round-robin style). They are:
MARK ALLEN BERUBE
: Brooklyn-based Mark Allen Berube is far more entertaining than any single human being with an acoustic guitar is allowed to be under current law. His punchy, well-crafted songs and rapid-fire delivery allow audiences little time to indulge in the laughter he frequently provokes without feeling like they've missed something. His brand-new album is called "Sticky."
: Metuchen's own Bruce Donnola has recorded five albums and composed an abstract instrumental score for the 2011 theatrical production, Nosferatu: the Vampyre. In addition to his own recordings, his songs have been recorded by numerous artists including frequent collaborator Jono Manson, John Popper, Shawn Colvin, David Hamburger, the Barnetti Bros Band and many others.
: A native Metuchen-ite who currently lives near Asbury Park, Renee Maskin's unique, somewhat-raspy voice serves as a compliment to the whiskey soaked world of alternative folk where her songs reside. In addition to her solo performances, Maskin has played and toured with bands of a variety of genres for over ten years.
offers sophisticated songwriting for grown-ups -- the born-and-bred New Yorker (now based in Metuchen, NJ) has been called a "brilliant tunesmith" (New York Music Daily) whose vivid imagery and intelligent, inventive storytelling -- combined with clever, catchy melodies and pure, precise vocals -- take folk-pop to new, more powerful places.
Door open at 7:30 p.m. on Saturday, February 7th. The Old Franklin School is located next to the Metuchen Fire Department at 491 Middlesex Avenue in Metuchen. Parking is available on Middlesex Avenue and in the Borough Hall parking lot across the street.
