MONDAY IS FOR MAKING MUSIC – All Performers are Berklee Faculty, Alumni, or Students
A Monday Night Residency Hosted by Guitar Virtuoso Julien Kasper with Special Guests each week!
Julien Kasper Band
“Exquisite tones, masterful execution, and innate soulfulness drive this jazzy, funky, bluesy, Sco-and-Beck-meet-Hendrix-for-drinks at-the-Harvard-Psychedelic-Club instrumental joyride.” – Guitar Player Magazine
Julien Kasper is a world touring guitar virtuoso that has seemingly done it all. This native of France is now based in Boston, Massachusetts where, in addition to writing, performing, and recording his original music, he is a professor on the guitar faculty at Berklee College of Music and an avid all-season surfer. “The Berklee gig is ideal in that I can impart my values and extensive performance experience to younger generations of talented musicians while interacting with a faculty of renowned international artists. The school encourages me to tour and record as my professional profile serves to enhance the reputation of the college and my own artistry. Surfing brings me into elemental contact with nature. Riding a wave is interaction with pure energy and the closest thing I can find to musical improvisation in that technique, knowledge, and experience all are at play but, ultimately, one must improvise and react to the purity of each passing moment.”
