A new music series brings a wide range of musical talent to the Berwick region.
Sponsored by the Berwick Arts Association, with bookings and sound provided by The Exchange, The Coffeehouse Series features local, national and international musicians in intimate venues on the second Wednesday of each month at 7pm.
The Coffee House series kicks off Wednesday, February 8 at Anomaly Craft Brewing at 135 West Front Street, Berwick with Brett Alexander.
Formerly known as A Perfect Blend, Anomaly Brewing has added craft beer to the same food and atmosphere that it is known for.
Other performances in the Coffee House series include: Blues pianist and singer Dave Keys and his friends, April 12th.
Guitarists/singer-songwriters Claude Bourbon and Brooks Williams are set to debut at Berwick later this year. The European-based duo plans to include his Coffeehouse Series on their US tour.
Based in northeastern Pennsylvania, Brett Alexander began his career as a studio engineer in the late 1980s. There he met members of the later band The Badlees. Signed to Polydor/A&M in 1995, Brett took on the role of principal songwriter/guitarist/multi-instrumentalist, and the band’s self-produced album ‘River Songs’ was released in 1996 with ‘Fear of Falling’ and ‘Angeline Is Coming Home” spawned his two hit singles. .”
Brett has toured and performed with Robert Plant, Jimmy Page, Bob Seger, The Band, The Allman Brothers, Edwin McCain, Live, Gin Blossoms and countless others. His work has appeared in the Winter Olympics, MTV, The Real World, Extra, The VMAs, and various movies and TV shows. Brett continues to perform as he has done over the years, from duos to full bands, solo and in a variety of other formations.
The Badlees will be inducted into the Central Pennsylvania Music Hall of Fame in July 2021 and will release their latest self-titled album in December 2022. For more information on Bret, visit bretalexanderonline.com.
