Show Info

David Buskin & Robin Batteau bring their “irresistible amalgam of melodic, sensual pop, folkie grit and killer wit” (The Washington Post) to The Acoustic Café Music Series in Park Ridge, NJ on Saturday, March 9th. Special guests The Copper Ponies. Accompanied by percussionist Marshal Rosenberg, B&B will perform favorites from their eclectic repertoire, ranging from the classically-oriented pyrotechnics of Batteau’s “Boy With the Violin” to the ethnically incorrect silliness of Buskin’s “Jews Don’t Camp.” They will also be playing selections from their newest CD, Love Remembered/ Love Forgot, which features guest appearances by Tom Rush and Jonatha Brooke, among others. The CD debuted at #5 on the national folk charts and continues to enjoy significant airplay worldwide. The classically-trained artists have been Clio-winning jingle writers (“The Heartbeat of America” for Chevrolet, “All Aboard Amtrak” & “I’m Lovin’ It” for McDonald’s, among others) and their songs have been recorded by such artists as Judy Collins, Astrud Gilberto, Johnny Mathis, Bette Midler, Anne Murray, the Oak Ridge Boys, Peter, Paul & Mary and Tom Rush. With their mix of talent, showmanship, Everly-crisp vocal harmonies and what Stephen Holden of The New York Times called their “by turns acerbic, funny and plaintive” music and commentary, Buskin & Batteau are consummate entertainers in their own right. As a duo, Buskin & Batteau have performed on London street corners, in New York’s Carnegie Hall and at folk festivals throughout the U.S. They also have shared Grammy, Emmy and Gold Record Awards and have performed and recorded with a host of Americana favorites. Buskin & Batteau also host a three-hour show called “Radio B & B” which airs every other Friday, from 3-6 p.m., on WPKN-FM (Bridgeport), which is streamed live at www.wpkn.org.
