Brooklyn Comes Alive 2020 Announces Lineup Additions With Special Guest Oz Noy Joining the Motet
Brooklyn Comes Alive will return on March 21st, 2020 at new its new home, multi-stage venue Avant Gardner located in Brooklyn, NY's Bushwick neighborhood. In advance of the music marathon—which brings together more than 50 artists in new and existing acts, allowing them to carry out passion projects, play with their musical heroes and collaborate in new ways—Brooklyn Comes Alive has shared some lineup additions
Israeli jazz fusion guitarist, Oz Noy, will now join The Motet as a special guest alongside Turkuaz vocalist Shira Elias, Ghost-Note/Snarky Puppy percussionist Nate Werth, and teenage guitar phenom Brandon "Taz" Niederauer. By the time Noy was 13, he was playing with some of Israel's top musicians and by 24, he was one of the most established studio guitar players in the country, ultimately relocating to New York City in 1996. To date, Noy has performed, toured, and recorded with the likes of Cyndi Lauper, Clay Aiken, Nile Rodgers, Warren Haynes, Gov’t Mule, The Allman Brothers Band, Allen Toussaint, John Medeski, Matisyahu, Jennifer Hudson, Josh Groban, Phil Ramone, Steven Tyler, Sting, Wiz Khalifa, Idina Menzel, Justin Timberlake, Bonnie Raitt, Lizzo, Dave Mathews, Umphrey's McGee, and countless others. His unique and intoxicating style has broken all the rules of instrumental guitar music by focusing on the groove, making him an in-demand guitarist across the live music space.
Additionally, Potions and 5 AM Trio have been added as support to the Brooklyn Comes Alive late-night lineup which already features Jade Cicada and a rare DJ set from Beats Antique.
Hailing from Santa Cruz, CA, Potions is the brainchild of producer/musician, Hunter Braymer. Under the moniker, Braymer blends a variety of tempos and styles, walking the line between experimental psychedelia and narrative musical experience. He focuses on an experimental sound that incorporates a multitude of bass-heavy genres and styles, delivering audiences a danceable, ever-morphing electronic experience.
Sam Andrus is the creative genius behind 5 AM. The Wilmington, DE-based producer pushes the boundaries and possibilities of sound with his vision of electronic music that pulls from the expansive arrangement styles of jazz and jam that was born from the stage as much as the studio. For the 5AM Trio, Andrus brings his music into fresh, improvisational territory, enlisting ZONE Drum‘s dynamic percussion and Tygris‘ combination of electronic production, bass guitar, and turntable arts.
2020's lineup features performances by Oteil & Friends, Turkuaz, Birds of a Feather feat. Members of Pigeons Playing Ping Pong & Goose, The Motet, Dr. Klaw, Robert Randolph & Friends, Anomalie / Deitch / MonoNeon, Here Come The Mummies, SPAGA Plays The Dead and Karina Rykman.
