How You Brewin's Summer Music Series
One of the many unique things about the Long Beach Island community is its vibrant music scene. Our 18-mile long barrier island is teeming with talent, and this summer, we’ve decided to showcase some of it! Our newly renovated Surf City location will allow for a variety of musical acts: duos, guitarists, solo artists, pianists. With a newly-built stage, plenty of seating options, a fancy mocktail bar and spacious patio, our coffee shop is now fully outfitted for summertime entertainment. Here are some of the all-star performers we’re lucky to have this summer:
1. August and Oak
Kick back and enjoy the relaxing musical stylings of indie-meets-folk duo, August and Oak. Locals Ryan Walsh and Brooke Milano, deliver splendid, soothing acoustic sets - perfect for your quiet evening out.
2. Matt Fisher
We’re excited to implement weekly ‘Cappy Hours’ this summer. Every Tuesday from 4pm-6pm, you can stop in on your way back from the beach to enjoy live music and drinks. One of our Cappy Hour regulars includes local artist Matt Fisher, an expert guitarist with an eclectic musical taste that ranges from The Temptations, to Springsteen.
Dan Brown is a local, live-looping musician who covers anything from Johnny Cash and The Grateful Dead, to Bob Marley and Drake. Brown will kick off our Grand Opening Celebration with soulful, summertime tunes and will also perform one of our many Cappy Hours.
4. Greg Warren
Escape the Fourth of July heat for a few hours to enjoy refreshing beverages and the smooth musical stylings of local musician, Greg Warren. Warren's jazzy, melodic riffs are the perfect soundtrack to your holiday weekend at the shore.
5. Sahara Moon
Sahara Moon is a young and ambitious singer-songwriter from New Jersey. Her unique vocal tones transcend beyond her low and high range. Sahara Moon's songwriting incorporates her own indie flare that consists of genre fundamentals of folk, jazz, and blues. We are excited to have Sahara perform at How You Brewin on various dates throughout the summer, including our Grand Opening Celebration on June 22nd.
6. Ty Mares
Ty Mares is a singer-songwriter originally from Denver, Colorado. He plays a combination of R&B, pop, and rock, relying heavily on long flowing riffs and colorful chord progressions to accompany the melodies. Ty will join us on a Saturday afternoon in August to share his soulful covers and original music.
7. Zinnia Moon
Younger sister to local musician Sahara Moon, Zinnia has proven that talent runs in the Moon family. Zinnia’s instrument of choice is a ukulele, but you can catch her behind a guitar or piano. Her signature sound is peaceful and melodic - think breezy, summer day at your favorite coffee shop. Along with Matt Fisher, Zinnia will be a Cappy Hour regular at How You Brewin, Surf City.
8. Ryan Zimmerman
Ryan Zimmerman is a roots musician dedicated to his craft of songwriting and performing live. An avid music fan, Ryan draws his influence from a multitude of genres including: funk, reggae, punk rock, blues and americana. The resulting sound is a creative, expert blend of colorful styles. We can’t wait to have him perform live on July 12th!
9. Allison Stella
Though we’ve pre-booked a handful of local acts for the summer, we’d like to welcome residents and vacationers to share their talents with us every Sunday from 7pm-10pm at our open mic nights. Seasoned musician, Allison Stella, will host these evenings and perform between acts. Participants are welcome to showcase their poetry, music, short stories, etc. We are excited to see what talent surfaces!
