Dave Joyce, Venn Sung, Darren Makins, Alyssa Garcia
Dec 7, 2018 - Doors at 6 pm - Show at 7pm
Darren Makins is what some would consider a music industry journeyman. He is the former guitarist for Hard Rock bands Palaceburn, DIVISIONS, and Embrace Ruin (featuring Zach and Josh from HONOR), and currently Session Musician and Guitarist for Pop/Rock and Brooklyn-Based Former Sony Recording artist Krista. Raised in nearby Royersford, Pennsylvania and a product of living downriver from a Nuclear Power Plant, Darren began playing guitar at age 6, and began to take playing seriously around the age of 12, since then has accomplished a lot within the music industry, although he struggles listing his accomplishments without it sounding like bragging. His singing style can be described as a straightforward, no frills Rock n' Roll but with an acoustic, think of a bit edgier Rob Thomas with some Brett Scallions in thrown in the mix. His performance October 20, 2018 at Chaplin's in Spring City, Pa opening for HONOR will mark his first solo appearance in nearly a decade.
Alyssa Garcia is a Philadelphia based, award-winning singer-songwriter and pianist with an alternative pop sound. Living by the mantra “Music is the cure”, she strives to use her original music as an outlet of positivity. With inspirations such as Regina Spektor and Sara Bareilles, Garcia pens soulful tunes telling personal stories her audience can often relate to.
Garcia has released several EPs and one full length album entitled, “three little words”. Currently, two tracks on her album (“Loved Actually” and “Better Life”) are featured in the film “Getting Grace” directed by Daniel Roebuck. Additionally, Garcia won the Philadelphia Songwriters Project's Annual contest in 2015 with her song "Better Life". Her song "Sincerely, Me", also featured on her newest album, won the 2018 "93.7FM Hometown Heroes: Homey Award" for best Pop song.
Garcia continues to perform at various venues and has opened for notable artists such as GRAMMY Nominee Crash Test Dummies, American Idol Finalist Bucky Covington, and the eighth season winner of "the Voice", Sawyer Fredericks.
