Mayer Hawthorne Draws Noontime Crowd At Rams Head On Stage

| April 17, 2012 | 0 Comments

You may not know the name just yet, but you will. And when you hear his music, it will be difficult to remain in your seats. Mayer Hawthorne (whose real name ironically enough is Andrew Mayer Cohen-get it?) is a funk infused blue eyed soul act that is creating a name for himself as he tours across the country. Tonight, he is at the 930 Club in Washington.

Mayer Hawthorne rocks an Elvis Costello vibe in his dress and mannerisms. Couple this with the blue eyed soul sound and it makes for a very entertaining experience. And if the clothing and sound were not enough of a dichotomy, Hawthorne also performs (wait for it) hip hop under the name Haircut!

Today’s treat was part of the WRNR Private Artist Showcase held at the Rams Head On Stage. These showcases allow a small group of WRNR listeners to get up close and personal with acts that are on the up-and-coming circuit.  Some day in the not too distant future, the 200 people that spent an hour with Mayer Hawthorne will be able to say they knew him when.
