Jefferson Berry & the UAC combine story-telling in the Urban Folk tradition with the intricacies of JamBand and Roots instrumentation. These songs are performed by a cadre of unique players: The Urban Acoustic Coalition, a band anchored by the virtuosity of Bud Burroughs, Dave Brown and Marky B! Berkowitz. While acoustic by nature, never missing is the locked-in bass/drums drive of Uncle Mike and Freddy “Rojo” Berman. 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 seven players, UAC shows are a dynamic performance of songs about the city. The April 2021 release of Soon! will be the band’s fourth record since playing the 2016 Philadelphia Folk Festival’s Camp Stage.
“Singing about the good love, the bad love and these strange times’, Berry and company craft a fun, thoughtful and unpredictable listen that anyone with an ear for folk and Americana will have no trouble enjoying.” Target Magazine
