The Suitcase Junket w/ Brian Dunne

Saturday April 7, 2018 @ 8:00 PM

THE SUITCASE JUNKET makes his Bridge Street debut with his new album, “Pile Driver,” on Saturday, April 7th. Please Note: the originally scheduled openers, the Harmaleighs, are unfortunately unable to make this show; however, the immensely talented BRIAN DUNNE has heroically stepped up and will be opening the show at 8 pm!

From the salvaged sounds of American juke joints, back porches, honky tonks, and rock clubs, THE SUITCASE JUNKET conjures an entirely new sound on his essential rock collection “Pile Driver” (April 21, Signature Sounds Recordings). The Suitcase Junket is Matt Lorenz: artist, tinkerer, swamp yankee, one-man band. His is the road-worn voice rising over the grind of a tube-amped dumpster guitar, and the wild double pitches of throat singing. From Lorenz' penchant for thrift and ingenuity comes this full-length Signature Sounds debut of original rock anthems, mountain ballads, blues manifestos and dance-hall festivity. It is magnificent, rousing, image-driven songwriting, laid out on instruments built of broken bottles, thrift store forks, dried bones, gas cans, shoes, saw blades, a toy keyboard, salvaged instruments, and an overhead compartment’s worth of luggage. "Pursuing your musical career as a one-man band takes a high level of charisma and stamina if you want to keep your audience entertained,” says Glide Magazine. “Luckily, Matt Lorenz possesses both of those things and he puts them to use as the Suitcase Junket. The New England musician is also talented as a craftsman and as a lyricist... Using his makeshift instruments, Lorenz creates electric music that walks the line between rock and roll and Americana."

Based out of Brooklyn, NY, singer/songwriter BRIAN DUNNE's music has won the attention and praise of many. With his sharp lyrical prowess and country-tinged vocals, Brian has played in the U.S. scene far and wide and won the support of many.

On February 17th, 2015, Brian released his full length debut "Songs From The Hive," which garnered praise from CMT, Songwriting Magazine, and countless others. He released his sophomore record on May 12, 2017 entitled "Bug Fixes & Performance Improvements" which debuted at #10 on the iTunes Songwriter charts and earned him performances on NPR's Mountain Stage and 2017's Cayamo Cruise. He has shared the stage with many songwriting legends and newcomers, such as Robert Earl Keen, Delbert McClinton, Justin Townes Earle, Lee Ann Womack, and many others.
