Black & Sparrow perform at Bay Street Theatre
April 18, 2015 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm$20
Klyph Black & John Sparrow are a New York based acoustic duo who have been performing for years to receptive crowds. In the past they have opened shows for The Subdudes, The New Riders of the Purple Sage, Mick Taylor, Taj Mahal, Hot Tuna and many other national acts. They have been joined on stage in the past years with Charles Neville as well as Grammy winner Terrance Simien.
Klyph and John met years ago through a mutual friend while John was working with Johnny Sparrow and the Vidals and Klyph with the band Urgent who was signed to Manhattan Records and produced by Ian Hunter and Mick Ronson. They hit it off, a friendship began and a few years later Black & Sparrow was formed. They performed to sell-out crowds in Switzerland following the release of their first CD “Friend and Partner”.
Hopefully Forgiven was voted ‘Best Band in the Hamptons’ by Dan’s Papers last year and they recently released their debut album, Play On (recorded in a barn in Sag Harbor, NY) and will begin an intensive ‘15 tour focusing on the Hamtpons and NYC. As a kickoff, they are excited to announce a show at Bay Street Theater (Sag Harbor) on April 18th (with Black and Sparrow).
The brotherhood/rivalry that is Hopefully Forgiven began shortly after a chance meeting through a craigslist ad when Brad offered his Brooklyn railroad apartment to Telly in exchange for watching his dog. After sizing each other up and realizing they shared a passion for music and surfing, Brad said “I think this will work. My house is yours– you can even play my Martin if you want….just don’t touch ma boots.”
