“Marc Berger & Ride bring a well choreographed mix of deep country folk songs with touches of bluegrass, roots, Americana, a little spicy cajun, and even a little indie with an effects laced lead acoustic guitar. It’s near impossible to sit through a set without feeling a musical kinship to something in every song, even if it’s just the basic joy of watching a well seasoned band rip through every song as if it was the final number of their farewell tour.”

– Steven Ha, The Living Room, NYC

 

“Easily one of the best acts we have hosted in 10 plus years, and we have had some of the biggest names in the business. You and the boys are always welcome at my place, and I hope we get you on the schedule sooner rather than later. Thank you all for a world class evening.”

-Jamey Reilly, Jamey’s House of Music

 

“Marc Berger and his band of skilled musicians put on one of the most memorable shows Old Sloop Coffeehouse has seen, evoking the sights and sounds of the West with songs from their standout album RIDE. After intermission, they demonstrated their more energetic side, mixing great new songs with some gems from Berger’s catalog. The audience was wowed,”

-Geof Lyon, Old Sloop Coffeehouse (Rockport, MA)

 

“Marc Berger’s album Ride is an evocative piece of work filled with mood and imagery, and while many bands fall short in recreating the mood, textures, and imagery of their recordings, Berger and his bandmates never miss the mark when showcasing these marvelous songs on stage.”

– Scott Cullen, Concerts at the Crossings

 

“Our audience loved his entire show. His lyrics were direct and meaningful, set against the expansive panorama of the American West. His vocal and instrumental work, exquisite. We were enthralled. At the end, he brought us all to our feet — twice.”

-Mark Shaffer, The Folk Project (Morristown, NJ)

 

“Everything the reviews said about Marc Berger was true I knew I couldn’t go wrong choosing Marc to perform in my concert series. Rich DePaolo sung harmony and accompanied him on guitar – adding some cool “effects” that gave rich color to Marc’s songs. Marc sings from his soul with lyrics refreshingly new and strong. His harmonica made his playing that much more deeply Americana. My guests were very excited about this concert, giving me wonderful feedback. Marc hopefully will be back here in 2014!”

– Dinah Mellin, Brick Hill Concerts

 

“Marc has the ear for the phrase that just flat knocks you out. I caught him in Grand Junction, and even though the band was limited to Marc and Rob on mandolin, they mesmerized the crowd with Marc’s vocals & their beautiful playing. As a DJ, every time I play a tune from “Ride”, the phone lights up with a “Who was that?!”

– Hugh Carson, KVNF

 

“We thoroughly enjoyed your performance here at Wildwood. Your music is fun and uplifting. We definitely want you to come back and play here again and again.”

– Steven & Konnie, Wildwood House Concerts

 

“Though I had never heard these songs, I instantly liked them, and the way Berger and his band presented them. They performed with great energy and care for the material. I was really impressed and look forward to hearing these songs many times over the weeks and months to come.”

– Philip Turner, Music, Bands & Radio; Urban Life & New York City

 

“Kudos to Marc Berger and Ride. Ride is a great listen. Even so, all the better if you can join them on that journey out West! Their live performance, both spirited and energetic, will take you there… I’d buy another ticket to Ride.”

– Robyn Kaleta, The Alternate Root

 

“The first half of the show included selections from the just-released long-in-progress project ‘Ride’ – a country/rock epic inspired by the American West as rugged and beautiful as a Montana vista.”

– Chris Kocher, Press Sun & Bulletin
