Earthquake: Washington D.C.'s own comedian Earthquake born Nathaniel Stroman has carved quite a unique audience for himself. He's captured the attention of popular media icons Howard Stern and Bill Maher. He's maintained his moniker as the 'comedian's favorite comedian.' Earthquake shakes up audiences with his high brow-common sense rhetoric as one of the most sought after comedians on the national entertainment circuit. 'This has to work, ain't no plan B,' bellows 'Quake' in his branded language. The former enlisted sergeant for the U.S. Air Force and father of three, never had a plan prior to this. In fact, this may not have even been a plan in the first place. 'I had no epiphany of one day following in Pryor's or any one else's footsteps. I just found my comfort zone at being me, and this is the result,' explains Earthquake. After becoming a formidable talent of the mid-90's explosion of BET's ComicView and HBO's Def Comedy Jam, Quake set up shop in New Aged Black Hollywood known as Atlanta and held down the host spot as proprietor of Uptown Comedy Corner. This infamous stage propelled him to national exposure while performing to sold-out rooms and opening the door to more mainstream media. Soon there would be room for Quake on television as he’d go on to secure a spot in 2002 on Comedy Central's Premium Blend, as well as a guest appearance on Mad TV. In 2003 his audience would see him set precedence as the first comic to command a standing ovation on the critically acclaimed, HBO's Real Time with Bill Maher. He also shot Comedy Central Presents: EARTHQUAKE! in this same year and in February 2005 he starred in Jamie Foxx's Comedy Central special Laffapalooza! hailing Earthquake as an all-time favorite. Earthquake would join HBO and sign on to develop and shoot the coveted half hour comedy series special One Night Stand in August. He'd later go on to make two memorable appearances on Comedy Central's Weekend at D.L.'s adding to a string of indelible appearances on the Viacom network. In 2005 DVD release, About Got Damm Time an aptly titled performance film marked the crowning moment in which Earthquake would solely take the stage as an ode to his loyal fans. From 2006 to present, Earthquake's television presence would grow more significant and spill onto the big screen. He would set ablaze in 2006 with the first of two unforgettable visits with Howard Stern on Howard TV. At the same time he was also preparing for his major motion picture appearance in Kevin Smith's cult classic sequel Clerk's II in which he would star opposite Wanda Sykes. He would continue on the big screen lending his voice to the much beloved animated film, Barnyard as Root the Rooster. During this same year, he would seize the recurring role of Uncle Mike on the CW network's Everybody Hates Chris. He would go forth blazing the television talk show craze with appearances on Michael Baisden After Dark, Comics Unleashed an additional Howard Stern appearance, and Comedy Central's Chelsea Lately.

Poor Old Shine
Event on 2014-05-13 20:00:00
Poor Old Shine is a roots band with a grassroots ethos. The Connecticut quintet prizes the human element that underpins their music, from songwriting to recording to album design and even choice of record label: Poor Old Shine released its self-titled debut studio LP, recorded with Sam Kassirer (Josh Ritter, Joy Kills Sorrow), Nov. 5 on Signature Sounds."You can't have music without people, whether it's electronic music or the oldest Delta blues players," singer and banjo player Chris Freeman says. "The people behind it are really important, and we always want to make sure that everything we do feels handcrafted and pure."Purity is subject to interpretation, of course, but the term certainly describes the band's motives. Formed at the University of Connecticut, where Freeman met banjo and mandolin player Antonio Alcorn in a folk music club on campus, an early version of Poor Old Shine landed its first gigopening for a friend's band at the legendary New Haven club Toad's Placebefore the musicians had even decided what to call themselves. "We came up with our name a few hours before the show," Freeman says. "It was a lot of fun and we figured, we might as well get another gig, and it went on like that for another year or so."With the addition Max Shakun on guitar and pump organ and Harrison Goodale on bass, the band began writing songs influenced by Pete Seeger, vintage bluegrass and bands like the Avett Brothers; recording a pair of self-released EPs and spending time on the road. Poor Old Shine played live shows before increasingly appreciative audiences in renowned venues, including the Kennedy Center for the Arts in Washington D.C., Club Passim in Cambridge, Mass., Rockwood Music Hall in New York and Infinity Hall in Norfolk, Conn., where the musicians recorded a live album in 2012. After capturing the band's onstage sound on the live LP, the group wanted to push themselves into new territory on Poor Old Shine. They found a ready collaborator in Kassirer, whose Great North Sound Society studio in Maine lends itself to focused creativity."It's about 40 minutes from the nearest grocery store," Freeman says. "There's no cellphone service, there's no Internet, it's like it's totally closed off from the world, and we really wanted to make that feeling that we had there come across on the album." You can hear it in the sound of a cricket and creaking door hinge that open the atmospheric ballad "Ghosts Next Door," and the dusty thump of a kick drum on the lovelorn "Empty Rocking Chair." Not all the songs are somber, though. Opener "Weeds or Wildflowers" is a joyous, celebratory number with beautiful close harmonies, while the mandolin-fueled rambling tune "Right Now" has a soaring, anthemic feel. "We wouldn't have been able to make the album that we made without exploring that traditional bluegrass sound, but we were really excited to also experiment," Freeman said.It paid off: Poor Old Shine one of the most exciting roots albums of the year, from a self-assured young band that's just now hitting its strideand worked hard to get there. "The last two years feel very surreal and it's hard to imagine what will come next," Freeman says. "We're just really excited by the opportunities we've had and the artists we've gotten to meet. We just want to keep living this dream."
