HearItThere.com Presents Urban Folk-Soul Songwriter Marc Von Em @Uncle Cheef, Brewster, NY in August!

Hudson Valley’s hottest live-music lounge, Uncle Cheef, and HearItThere.com are honored to introduce the dynamic Marc Von Em on Wednesday, August 23, 2023 with two music sets of acoustic music at 7:30 & 9 PM.

Marc is proud to have shared the stage with Rob Thomas (Matchbox 20) as a backing vocalist and guitarist for 10 years and 3 World Tours. His original music is a mix of bluesy rock, folk & funk, and more recently early jazz & swing. He appears mostly solo, showcasing his original music on acoustic guitar with a bit of harmonica and other instrumentation sown in.

With this 2022 LP release, Von Em paid homage to The Great American Songbook infusing jazz and swing in his fifth original album entitled, “Goodbye, Cloudy Sky.” The album was well received, ranking in the top 50 in the U.S. FAI Folk Chart’s “Top Albums of the Month” that year.

“What I found fascinating, and makes Marc’s project unique for me, is that all the songs on this album were captured with vintage mics to achieve a retro sound. The result is an original creation of lyrically rich and melodic songs influenced by swing, jazz and Americana,” explained Elisa Zuckerberg, Founder HearItThere.com. “Marc is one of those unique artists whose original songs capture you on many levels, the rhythmic pulse, soulful voice, well-crafted lyrics, along with a great sense of humor, entertains to no end. Uncle Cheef is a special place with a super vibe. When choosing a musician for our monthly Hear It There Presents, I want to make sure the energy fits the room and that the audience is wowed”!
