Geoff Berner: “Fantastic” – Billy Bragg

Geoff Berner, highly acclaimed by none other than Billy Bragg, makes a rare appearance at The Roomz on Friday July 5th. We present a preview by John Knowles of Fetch.
Geoff Berner returns to Hastings on his European tour and hot foot from the fields of Glastonbury. Jewish, Canadian, accordionist Geoff Berner is quite simply mesmerising in his performances, with a dry wit which could soak up the Atlantic, he has the ability to keep a room hooked with his pregnant pauses and frequent sips of whiskey. An accomplished player, word-smith and self deprecating, Geoff is, ‘The Avenging Angel of Klezmer’.  For fans of Geoff the good news is that he returns this time with his new band and a fuller Klezmer sound. Miss this and you will kick yourself.  This is a Contribute gig, free to get in but please put money in the hat (recommended contribution three pounds).
“Cherish him, cherish him, for there really is no one like him. Fantastic.”
— Billy Bragg

Geoff Berner

An evening spent with Geoff Berner’s music is, in the words of the good Dr. Hunter S. Thompson, “a wild combination of menace, madness, and genius… fragmented coherence that wreaks havoc on the mind of any listener.” – Vue Weekly, Edmonton
