Middletown Arts Center presents September

(MIDDLETOWN, NJ) -- The Middletown Arts Center presents the monthly MAC Music Café, an afternoon of live music performed by top-notch musicians, on Sunday, September 24 from 4:00pm-6:00pm. This month’s singer-songwriter showcase features local talent Patrick Bamburak, Rick Dill, Gwynne Alden and Frank Patrouch. The concert will take place in the MAC theater. The event is free with a suggested donation of $5.

Patrick Bamburak is a veteran recording artist and media personality. Patrick's solo album "Open Your Eyes" and the newly released single "#Do You See Me" are available on iTunes, Apple Music and Amazon. Patrick also hosts the radio program "Patrick Bamburak's Night Music", airing weeknights from 10 pm - 2 am on NEWHD New York, streaming on or via the apps that are available on Apple and Google Play. Patrick has appeared in both film and television, including a special Season 20 episode of Discovery Networks' "Mysteries at the Museum: The Lindbergh Kidnapping", which can be streamed on Discovery +. Patrick's musical influences include songwriters such as Sting, Paul Simon, Elvis Costello and David Bowie.

Rick Dill’s songs reflect the life lived and lessons learned, set in different historical periods that all seem familiar. He has ten self-released collections of music, plus several singles and collaborations with his friends. Everything is available on all major music streaming platforms. Whenever and wherever music is found, there also is a miracle.

Starting at age six, Gwynne Alden began singing in choir, plays, school and church. Her love for music developed even more strongly when she picked up the guitar at age 14 and began writing songs. Throughout college, her dedication to songwriting grew and recorded two albums. Upon graduating, she took her country music dream to Nashville and spent a year in Music City, writing, performing and growing as a singer, artist and human. Since 2020, she has moved back to NJ and put out an EP recorded in Nashville, "Somewhere Between Nashville and Jersey". She currently is working on an album and frequently returns to Nashville to record and play gigs. You can find more info on Gwynne at Gwynne Alden Music on Facebook, Gwynne Alden on Instagram and Gwynne Alden on Spotify.

Frank Patrouch was born August 31, 1958, in Teaneck NJ. While he has strayed over the border numerous times, he has remained a NJ resident his whole life. “I’ve done a lot of stupid things and some wise things, but mostly stupid.” As he approaches the end of his 64th year, he invites you to join him in what he calls “my last few laps around the track.”
