Bard Rock

NYC-based Bard Rock is at Maker Faire New York this weekend, performing lyrics from Shakespeare plays. Their Facebook page says it all:

“We are a band of traveling players, performing Shakespeare’s lyrics for a modern audience. While we’re not limited to any musical style, we are guided by the belief that Shakespeare rocks.”

Here they perform lyrics from Act 2, Scene 2 in “A Midsummer Night’s Dream.”

Bard Rock is composed of Adam Weppler, Jake Green, Harry Smolowitz, R. J. Vaillancourt, Kelly Blaze Klotz, and Devin Nelson.

    That’s a really interesting idea to turn & sing Shakespeare’s words to lyrics with modern music while travelling. Sounds cool.
