BR to Perform Weekly Piano Bar Residency in Ocean City.

bargain scotch press photoEach Monday nite, throughout the summer season, I’ll be putting the guitars down and saddling up to a lovely baby grand at the Beach Plaza hotel on the famous Ocean City (Maryland) Boardwalk and playing in the piano bar lounge at Adolfo’s Restaurant on 13th street and the Boardwalk.

Join me for a classy evening of some of my piano tunes and some of the songs that have helped shape those tunes sonically speaking.

It’s a perfect date night kind of evening, and all the songs are sure to go well with something in a brandy snifter and pair well with a fine red wine.

Hope to see you there…Check the “shows” page for all other listings in June.

More shows in JULY and August to be posted soon.

Spring News!

BRHBOSHOW6As we ramp up to another summer season here on the Eastern Shore, things are as busy as ever.

ICYM some of the big recent news, here’s a brief recap:

1. Due to sweeping budget cuts, my award winning public radio show “Coastal Connection” was cancelled at the end of January after 4 and a half years on the airwaves.  I’ll also be leaving WAMU 88.5 FM in Washington in May to pursue the next chapter of my journalism career.  More on that TBA.

2. I launched a new web series called “Curtain Call: Historic Theaters of the Eastern Shore” which you can find on the “videos” page of this website or here: https://www.youtube.com/user/bryandrusso

3. Musically, I was honored to open for the formidable Texas based blues trio The Los Lonely Boys and the Grammy-nominated blues powerhouse “Heritage Blues Orchestra” in March.  Both shows were awesome.  Here’s a video from the Los Lonely Boys show.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_QTENMsBX-A

4. I have been sponsored by PRS Guitars and will be playing the amazing S2 Mira (semi-hollow) as my main guitar from here on out.  It’s as classy sounding as it is aesthetically stunning (see pic above)

5. I have a huge project in the works….and it has been keeping me up at night with excitement.  I can’t wait to share it with you.


There’s the recap…please check out the “shows” page to find out where to see a show and I hope to see you soon!
