Marc Black is one of those rare artists who's music has found a home in folk, pop and avant-garde radio formats. His most recent disc reached #6 on the Folk/DJ Chart. But whether he’s singing about his morning coffee or his dreams for the future, Marc brings a passion and a tenderness that somehow makes us feel better about where we are today.

He was inducted into the New York Chapter of the Blues Hall of Fame for his unique take on the blues. His laid-back finger-style guitar, in the tradition of Mississippi Hurt, blended with a sultry vocal that might remind you of Tim Hardin, with a dose of Woodstock funk and soul. Over the past several years, he has performed and recorded with Art Garfunkel, Taj Mahal, Richie Havens, Rick Danko and Pete Seeger, to name a few. “No Fracking Way,” which he wrote and recorded with John Sebastian, has become a worldwide anthem for the movement, while some of his YouTube videos have been viewed more than 50,000 times. In the words of folk legend Happy Traum, “Marc is a master at delivering the joy of music.”

What’s in a Friend? Just ask 747 – a rock and pop act from the Hudson Valley born out of several lasting musical friendships. With the sharp technique of experienced players and chemistry from past musical partnerships, their sound is immediately accessible and full of feeling. The material draws on “hidden gems” - the kind you say, “I LOVE this song, but you never hear it anymore!”- as well as new songs written by the group.

Jerry Kitzrow, singer/songwriter/guitarist, started in the industry as a teen with NYC faves, The Bandables and later formed Wild Honey with his favorite NYC drummer - Charlie Shaw. Meanwhile, Lead guitarist Tony Ercole and bassist Hal Coopersmith were playing with the seminal Greenwich Village act, Broken Hearts. Independently, all four players “Got Out of Dodge” and moved north to the Hudson Valley (and why not!?), and their paths started crossing again, 75 miles to the north, in Beacon, NY.

Jerry came out of a musical retirement and formed The Flurries in 2014 - meeting Tony in the process and becoming fast friends. With a pending 2017 solo gig, Jerry invited Tony, who invited Hal, and somehow Charlie showed up out of the past with impeccable timing ... the timing of a drummer! At the very first rehearsal, connected by their friendship … and music … each felt they’d found something special – and their audiences have been telling them the same ever since!
