About the Musician
After trying several local blues, cover and original bands to varying degrees of obscurity, I went acoustic in the early 90’s as a solo performer, rendering a quirky, thumping mix of blues and classic rock covers as well as my own songs when I can get away with it.
Regarding the live performances, it is my prime directive to offer up something a bit different for an acoustic solo act. I choose my song list carefully and certain things people expect to hear an acoustic solo guitarist play are scrapped, quite on purpose. You'll never hear Margaritaville come out of me, not that there's anything wrong with that, it's just there is plenty of that elsewhere. My personal musical preferences and what I feel I am best at includes blues and swampy southern varieties of rock, which peppers my list copiously.
About The Music:
Elements of Blues and the occasional Twang are nailed together with a Rock ’n’ Roll sensibility. The recorded work is fleshed out with full garage band thump, including slappadabass, layered guitars and drums. Guy’s live acoustic performances are thrown down low tech and high energy, with a song list of deep blues and toe tappin classic rock favorites and a bit of hillbilly, as well as his own songs.
Here are some excerpts from recent reviews of Guy’s recorded material:
DEMORAMA’S TOP HONORS “KICKERS OF ASS” LIST, REVIEW BY LUIS FISKE: “With a solid voice that's a combo of David Clayton-Thomas, Springsteen (sans the pretentiousness) and his own stylings, Bergeron nimbly handles a variety of sounds, touching on jazz, blues, folk, country and intelligent pop.”
SPLENDID EZINE'S ANDREW MAGILOW: "Guy Bergeron is a genre-defying musical anomaly. Bergeron does a superb job parting the muddy waters between blues and contemporary indie rock."
MUSES MUSE REVIEWER STACEY BOARD: “Guy's bio says he is a native of Massachusetts but someone must be UPSing him some grits and gravy. This East Coast man has more than his share of twang and blues in his music.”
Some reviews of the live performances:
We were not disappointed!! So many positive comments!!! Great voice and amazing guitar talent! We would definitely recommend him. He has a nice varied list of songs. Awesome job Guy!! -Susie C, Springfield, NH
Great time, great music, very easy going, laid back, and flexible. Everybody at the party was impressed and kept asking "where did you find this guy!!!!". We will definitely have him back at the next backyard bash!!! -Anthony M, Foxboro, MA
Guy Bergeron made my Mother's 50th birthday party an amazing night. He arrived on time and stayed way later than expected because everyone was having an amazing time dancing and listening to him jam out. If you need a guitarist/singer I would call this man. He is amazing! -Christy O, Burlington, MA
