Richard Barone (of The Bongos)

"I've always been impressed by Richard's version of 'I'll Be Your Mirror.' It is as pure and intimate as I would want it to be. How enticing." - Lou Reed

Richard Barone is an acclaimed recording artist, performer, producer, and author. Since 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 described his first solo album "cool blue halo" as chamber rock, helping give rise to the popular genre. Recent collaborators and cohorts include Tony Visconti, Beach Boy Al Jardine, Sean Lennon, folk-rock luminary Donovan, the late rock legend Lou Reed, and American folk icon 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), was produced by Visconti. Other recent releases include the deluxe CD/DVD set, “'cool blue halo' 25th Anniversary Concert” (DigSin) and the legendary “lost” Bongos album, Phantom Train (JEM Records). Barone lives in Greenwich Village, NYC where he is also a Professor at the Clive Davis Institute of Recorded Music at NYU.

+ Pocket Hotties

"Irresistibly hot! Pocket Hotties are bringing the rump-shaking good times to the dance party landscape. Individually they've performed with, opened for or otherwise parleyed with Dance Party luminaries including: Tom Tom Club, Caravan of Thieves, Saint Bernadette, The Step Kids, Run DMC, Talib Kweli, Jose Feliciano and just gobs more. They are 'Lord of the Flies' gone right. Catch them if you can as they booty shake their way across the galaxy."

An Oddball Event.
