Richard Barone is an acclaimed recording artist, performer, producer, and author. Since his beginnings as "The Littlest DJ" on Top 40 radio at age 7, to pioneering the indie rock scene in Hoboken, NJ as frontman for The Bongos, Barone has produced countless studio recordings and worked with artists in every musical style. Rolling Stone magazine described his first solo album "cool blue halo" as 'chamber rock’, helping give rise to the popular genre. Recent collaborators and cohorts include Lou Reed, Tony Visconti, folk-rock legend Donovan, and Pete Seeger. He has scored shows and staged all-star concert events at such world-class venues as Carnegie Hall and the Hollywood Bowl. His memoir Frontman: Surviving The Rock Star Myth was published by Hal Leonard Books. His most recent studio album, Glow(Bar/None Records), was produced by Visconti, and a deluxe CD/DVD set, “'cool blue halo' 25th Anniversary Concert” was recently released on the DigSin label and it will be available for sale here at The Record Collector !
1:30 pm - Anker
Anker is a solo acoustic singer/ songwriter from Upstate NY but now resides in central NJ. He has performed all over the tri-sate area, raised thousands of dollars for numerous charities.
Anker's self-produced debut CD “Deliver Down” was released August 2012. "Deliver Down" is the organic middle ground between solo-acoustic and a full band. Anker layers his acoustic guitar, a ukulele (and a bass on some tracks) to bring out the hooks and melodies. This album gives Anker the chance to explore his songs and present them with more detail and fuller arrangements without getting lost in the noise of a band which would take away the charm of his acoustic roots. ANKER has received 3 nominations for the JAM AWARDS !
Both artists will have merchandise for sale here at The Record Collector and will be doing a meet and greet following their performances!
