From the drunk on the town to the cop on the take, there’s an interesting tale in the songs of Jefferson Berry. These songs are performed by a cadre of unique players: The Urban Acoustic Coalition. The band is anchored by the virtuosity of Bud Burroughs, Dave Brown and Marky B. Berkowitz. While appealing to both jam band and folk audiences, the band is driven by the bass & drums cadre of Uncle Mike and David Rapoport into what is best described as high-end Folk Rock. Complementing all this with a variety of guitar styles, Berry’s projects bring a danceable style and contemporary point of view to a unique wing of Philadelphia’s local music scene.
Filling venues with a coalition of three to six players, UAC shows are dynamic performance of songs about the city, the good love/bad love and these strange times. The April 2020 release of Double Deadbolt Logic will be the band’s third record since playing the 2016 Philadelphia Folk Festival’s Camp Stage.
