The Hypnotic Clambake Duo
About the duo:
Maury Rosenberg - Band Director, Accordion, Keyboards/Piano, Lead Vocals.
Maury, originally from Long Beach, NY, graduated from the Berklee College of Music in Boston, MA. He then became a rehearsal pianist with the Boston Ballet and has since performed with world-renowned cellist Yo-Yo Ma and vertuosic clarinetist Glenn Dickson. As an accordionist with Border Patrol, Maury's song writing attracted the attention of well-known musician David Lindley, who produced two of Maury's original works in the studio. Woody Allen used piano performances of Maury playing with the Shirim Klezmer Orchestra, in his movie Deconstructing Harry. Maury is the founder and leader of Hypnotic Clambake.
JoAnn Vaccaro - Electric Guitar, Harmonica, Scrub Board, Kazoo & Vocals.
JoAnn is a singer-songwriter from Rochester, NY. While her musical style is hard to fit into a single genre, she has been placed in the category of folk rock and is often compared to such pop music artists as Ani Difranco, Tori Amos, and Joni Mitchell. Vaccaro has a very distinct guitar style characterized by finger-picking and flamenco-like strumming patterns. Her vocal lines range from sultry blues and jazz to rock, with lyrics which ignite out of an intense flare for poetry and ability to speak her mind. Don't miss her!
