The Bushwick Hotel - (Set time: 9:30 PM)
The Bushwick Hotel
The Bushwick Hotel came together in the summer of 2012 when Gregory Ferreira (vocals/guitar/keyboard/percussion) was recording his second solo album, Graffiti of the Young Man's Mind, in his Bushwick recording studio, Live By the Sword. Gregory started playing professionally at the age of nine in Boston, playing with multiple bands over the years, including The Chainletter, which was nominated for a Boston Music Award. Being an accomplished producer and sound engineer, Gregory moved to Brooklyn in 2006 and started Live By the Sword Studio. While in Brooklyn Gregory has played in Missing Ships, recorded his first solo album, The Suitcase Album, done session work, and has produced music for local musicians that range from jazz to hip hop. In his typical fashion, he serendipitously assembled a band of local Brooklyn musical misfits including Matt La Von (tenor, alto, and soprano sax/clarinet/background vocals), DB Tamir (bass/background vocals), Rudy Temiz (slide guitar/background vocals), and Ben Teters (drums/background vocals). What resulted from a crazy summer and a straight month of cohabitation and recording at Live By The Sword Studio is a truly original contemporary interpretation of a rock album and a strong bond between band members of which most of whom had never played together before.
