Black Rock Social and Jen Durkin & The Business
We return for a hometown throwdown with our brothers and sisters Jen Durkin & The Business
Black Rock Social

Black Rock Social is a phenomenal 6 piece powerhouse, bringing more fire to the stage than ever before. Their rootsy soul vibe, and heavy bass lines, combined with multiple harmonies, and blistering guitar & sax solos, separate Black Rock Social from every other reggae band. Their high energy approach, and positive stage presence, provide an unforgettable show for any music fan. Performance highlights include a sold out show with Steel Pulse, CT Style on WTNH, Bacon & Brew Fest, and sit ins from Josh David Barrett(lead singer of The Wailers), Pete Francis(Dispatch), Jen Durkin(Deep Banana Black Out), Chris Simmons(Russell Band) & Hayley Jane. Be on the look out for their upcoming debut albumn

The new project packed with tradition and new inspiration --- JEN DURKIN AND THE BUSINESS is keeping it up. Focusing on the quality of the music and the experience brought by seasoned collaboration she teamed up with Rich Zurkowski, Darian Cunning, Jesse Gibbon and brother Johnny Durkin). JD and the business kicked of their tour dates at SOUPSTOCK music and arts festival paving the way for an awesome stream of gigs and special guests in the past year including, DOWNTOWN BRIDGEPORT, Gathering of the Vibes night at Harbor Yard, the Bella terra music festival with Pete Levin of Greg Allman band and the 5 blind boys of AL on keyboard. The festival appearances continued at CATSKILL CHILL where Twiddle and Schwizz were special guests. Oteil Burbridge was next to sit in at WORMTOWN MUSIC FEST. The producers of Gimme Shelter had Jen and the band perform a unique evening of music off the Rolling Stones Documentary Soundtrack at the Palace Theater in Stamford! As the fall continued a great music fest collaboration formed that same month with SONS OF FUNK sharing the stage at The Shuck n Ride Festival.

Kicking off 2015 JD and Biz attended the NAMM conference and performed a special show at THE VIPER ROOM opening for tribute to Funkadelics Maggot Brain with special guest George Clinton. Their West coast debut was complete with a performance for the TELEFUNKIN ALL STAR JAM at the HOUSE OF BLUES with members of Fishbone, P Funk and Snarky Puppy. Jen celebrated her birthday in the spring opening for DUMPSTAPHUNK at BROOKLYN BOWL where she was invited to sing with her favorite band!

The Band keeps on trucking playing up and down the east coast
