It is not often that someone creates a night of entertainment that is wholly unique and ridiculously cool! Every week at 43 Church in Salem MA; Mr. Michael Feingold has created just that. First a little background.
Who is Michael Feingold?
Feingold was born and raised in Swampscott and started playing guitar at age 12. He attended Berklee College of Music in Boston and was mentored by Spanky Alford in Alabama.
He's performed in the biggest festivals, arenas and theaters across the world with some of the most acclaimed and well-known musicians in today's music industry, including Queen Latifa, The Roots, Kanye West, Corinne Bailey Rae, and Erykah Badu. Feingold was also guitarist and co-arranger with Jay Z at Carnegie Hall.
The Desire to create something different
Michael has been in town playing with various bands and iterations settling back into New England life trying to establish a unique night of music and entertainment that he could call his own. Michael has often been inspired in his career by the "masters" and the early pioneers that have shaped the music that we enjoy to this day. An affinity for the classics from arrangements to silent films has left a deep impression on Michael and thus the spark that would bring the speakeasy to life was born.
What is the Speakeasy
A varied selection of silent films ranging from historic to Avant-Garde , Live arrangement performed by the area's top talents showcasing a range of instruments from guitar to concert harp. These talented musicians live score the movies creating a unique soundtrack with special audio effects and more. Michael has put together a fantastic trending playlist on Spotify featuring inspirational works and some of the basic foundations for the live scoring.
