When Catherine and Bernadette of Bern & the Brights came to visit a couple weeks ago, they broke more than one record. I don’t think we’ve had anyone else visit us while on tour yet, and definitely no one has rocked out as hard on an electric guitar on my couch before. There’s such an amazing blend of musical energy in these two, both in their singing and their guitar playing.
Bern & the Brights are a great band from New Jersey. These cats have been releasing music and playing shows all across the region since 2008. Please visit them on Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and the Internet proper. And check out all those beautiful pedals.
They visited on Super Bowl Sunday, and I’m really happy to say that they turned around my entire day. A week before their session, the Attic fell victim to many dirty dishes and a broken garbage disposal, and by the time I got home for their session, the wear of showering with all of our dishes in the bathtub had been really getting to me. But as soon as they started playing, I felt like a lightning bolt of energy and joy was surging through me. I hope you enjoy these videos as much as I enjoyed filming them!
