Marcio Philomena Group / The Felix Peikli Quartet

Saturday / September 10, 2011 / 3:00 p.m.

The Felix Peikli Quartet

Two student groups are slated to perform from 3:00 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. on the main outdoor stage as part of the Boston Arts Festival in Christopher Columbus Park. The festival features music, visual art, and dance. Marcio Philomena Group goes on first. 

Marcio Philomena is a guitar player from Porto Alegre, the capital city of the southernmost Brazilian state. The Marcio Philomena Group was born out of the idea of reuniting fellow talented Berklee students from different parts of the globe to create instrumental music that is based in jazz but also incorporates a blend of different tastes, rhythms, and melodies.

The Group debuted on January 2010 at the famous Ryles Jazz Club in Boston; with its strong rhythmic drive and intense stage energy, the band keeps performing regularly around New England area.

The Group consists of Philomena on guitar, Dwight Rivera on piano, Greg Feingold on bass, and Patrick Simard on drums.

Born in Oslo, Norway, Felix Peikli found his way into music through the local marching band at the age of 8. They picked out the instrument, which today seems to have been the perfect choice: a clarinet. Two years later, he received a Benny Goodman recording from his grandfather, and Goodman became the new idol. His first performance was during a jam session at the Oslo Jazz Festival in 2002. Too young to enter the bar, Peikli argued his way in with his mother. Unaware that celebrities such as Berklee faculty member Joe Lovano were in the audience, he played and was invited back the next day for his first hired gig.

Peikli became a student at the Barratt Dues Classical Institute of Norway from 2004 to 2008. He also won the National Dream Prize in 2005; one year later, he won the Grand Chance on national TV. He began playing concerts internationally, and received the Capital of Norway Honors Prize as the youngest recipient ever in 2007. He received a full-tuition scholarship to Berklee in fall 2008 and has had the opportunity to study with Frank Tiberi, Harry Skoler, Terri Lyne Carrington, Leo Blanco, Greg Osby, Hal Crook, and Lovano.

These United States

Originally from Washington DC and Lexington, Kentucky, These United States released two albums in 2008, one in 2009, and one in 2010, all via Colorado-based record label United Interests. In the four years since its formation, the band has played 700 shows across the United States, United Kingdom, and northern Europe, appearing at South by Southwest, the CMJ Music Marathon, Lollapalooza, and the U.K.'s Glastonbury Festival. 

Southeast Engine's folk-rock aesthetic emerged from the Ohio underground in 1999. The Wrens discovered SEE in 2006 and led Misra Records to the band later that year. The esteemed A Wheel within a Wheel was released in 2007, followed with 2009's From the Forest to the Sea. The latter received an 84—universal acclaim—from rating aggregator Metacritic. While preserving the band's signature sound, Canary marks a dramatic step forward in both songwriting and arrangement. In 2010 the band toured extensively with Deerhoof and has prepared an elaborate 2011 tour schedule as well.

Aspiring recording artist and singer-songwriter Shea Rose is a Boston native and Berklee alumna. Rose, who majored in professional music, describes her sound and style as the female Lenny Kravitz meets Lauryn Hill with a splash of Betty Davis.  

In her article "Raw Rocking Soul," Performer Magazine writer Noelle Janka describes her as, "Equal parts soul, hip-hop, and rock 'n' roll," and says that Shea's stage presence calls to mind the raw energy of Rage Against the Machine's Zack de la Rocha.
