A cold winter evening was brought to life by the masses who congregated to pay homage and lend their support to local musician and Asbury Music Awards winner of Top Guitarist, Brent Bergholm. In late November Brent had his car broken into after a gig in Brooklyn and all his equipment, the tools of his trade and livelihood, were stolen. A Go Fund Me account was been set up in his name and has received many positive contributions of which he is incredibly grateful but is still shy of his goal. Dark City Entertainment and Productions and The Wonder Bar got down to business and organized a benefit with all proceeds going to Brent and his quest to replace all of his gear.
The House of Thieves warmed up the crowd for two piece powerhouse Gayguy/Straightguy. If you were not watching you would never know it was just Guitar and Drums making those beautiful noises.
SIMGE contributor, Photographer Mike Petzinger filled in on bass with Brent’s band The Hsu-Nami, and as the energy and crowd participation continued to grow, closers Deal Casino left the place in awe from their masterful set.
A great turn out for a great cause, some photos from the evening:
