Scratch Track brings unique sound to Berks

scratchtrack_1.13.10

The duo that comprises Scratch Track, David "DJ" Lee and guitarist Jason Hamlin, will bring their unique sound to Penn State Berks on Friday, January 22, at 7:30 p.m. in the Perkins Student Center Multipurpose Room. This event is free and open to the public.

Some label their sound as acoustic hip-hop soul, while others call it a deft blend of beats and unplugged instrumentation. Scratch Track is an anomaly that is perhaps best described as "mind-bending, style-bending, and undeniably original. The duo began performing on college campuses, coffee houses, and clubs, and evolved into touring with O.A.R., and opening for such groups as The Roots, Los Lonely Boys, Erykah Badu, Jarassic 5, and Living Colour, among others.

Despite the band's commercial success with three CDs and soundtracks for CSI New York, Warren Miller's skiing film Off the Grid, and Sony Playstation's "MLB" video game, they have stayed true to their college touring roots.

This presentation is part of the college's Arts and Lecture series. For more information, contact the Office of Campus Life at 610-396-6076.
