Live at the Archway: THE GENTLEMAN BRAWLERS
Live at the Archway is an annual series of free concerts and interactive visual arts programming in the unique setting of the Dumbo Archway, one of the only covered outdoor spaces in New York City. Founded in 2015, the series reflects the neighborhood’s diversity and commitment to the arts, and showcases a broad variety of music, dance and visual art styles. Programming consists of a headlining act on stage at 6:00pm including music and dance in a diversity of genres, and a Dumbo-based visual artist’s solo show in a pop-up Gallery, also in the Archway.

THE GENTLEMAN BRAWLERS. Gentleman Brawlers, a Brooklyn 6-Piece fronted by the creative duo Matt Walsh and Becca Fox, are psychedelic Afro-soul revivalists known for infusing throwback electronica and acid rock into their funk-based compositions. The ‘Brawlers deliver a live show with plenty of heat, crackling energy, and butt-shaking whomp. Notable performances took place at Brooklyn Bowl (opened for Grammy award-winning artists Fantastic Negrito and Los Amigos Invisibles), Daryl’s House, Princeton University’s storied Terrace F. Club, Bethlehem’s Musikfest, WNYC’s The Greene Space, The McKittrick Hotel (home of Sleep No More), Brooklyn’s Knitting Factory, and recently an in-studio appearance on WBEZ Chicago (home of NPR’s Wait Wait … Don’t Tell Me and This American Life).
CRAIG ANTHONY MILLER (CAM.) Perhaps on of Dumbo’s most famous, most old school artists, CAM is well know of his vibrant murals around Dumbo. He creates images that are connected to self-mastery modalities, embracing thoughts of power, stamina, and abiding presence to endure our biggest challenges. A collection of visual cues of transformation and growth, focusing on symbols, totems, emblems, and abstract figurative construction. Graphic design, branding and have a deep appreciation for street art and graffiti often influence me. Stylistically, his style origin is picked up from my love of stained glass.
