Old Springs Pike Plays NYMF Concert at Ars Nova, Sept. 29

NY Musical Theatre Fest   Old Springs Pike Plays NYMF Concert at Ars Nova, Sept. 29 John Gallagher Jr., who played Moritz in the Off-Broadway production of Spring Awakening and will reprise the role when it transfers to Broadway later in the fall, will appear in a New York Musical Theatre Festival concert at Ars Nova along with his band, Old Springs Pike.

The concert takes place Sept. 29 at 8 PM, 511 West 54th St.

In addition to Spring Awakening John Gallagher Jr. has previously appeared on Broadway in Rabbit Hole with Cynthia Nixon.

Old Springs Pike blends the cricket chirp of a suburban slow-fade with the subway scream of metropolitan mayhem. Using four-part harmony as a diving board, these early twenty-somethings find themselves in stylistic depths ranging from a fair-paced folk to a rarely restrained roots rock. With an energetic, spontaneous live act, Old Springs Pike proves that it's not just a concert, but an event.

With frequent four part harmonies each member of Old Springs Pike is the lead singer: James Cleare on guitar, Johnny Gallagher on guitar, Heather Robb on keyboards and James Smith on guitar. Kick drum, hi-hat, other various percussion including garbage and sometimes toy instruments are played by everyone in the band.
