Patrick Bamburak – Keys & Strings

April 15, 2018 @ 7:30 pm

Preservation New Jersey is pleased to welcome indie singer-songwriters Patrick Bamburak and special guest Chris Kudela back for a Sunday evening in the wonderful acoustics of the 1867 Sanctuary at Ewing!

Veteran musician and recording artist Patrick Bamburak reaches deep into his commercially-released song catalog to present his latest touring show, Keys & Strings.

An evening of Patrick’s original songs, pared down and performed with vocal, piano, acoustic guitar, and cello, Keys & Strings gives the audience a powerful concert experience tailored for an intimate setting.

Patrick is accompanied onstage by his long-time touring partner, cellist Conor Peacock.


An exclusive attraction has been added to this 1867 Sanctuary tour stop: Patrick will reunite onstage for the first time in over a decade for a “mini-set” with his noted pop-rock group Funhaus. Funhaus is singer Michelle Aversano, pianist and singer Tim Keyes, and Patrick Bamburak. Funhaus released two albums, (Funhaus and Abandoned City) in the early 2000’s and their music has been featured on radio, television and in motion picture productions.

The opening act on the Keys & Strings tour is indie-rock mainstay Chris Kudela, who recently released his acclaimed debut album Write It Over.

Patrick is a featured performer on “The Teddy Smith Show,” on WPAT 930AM radio in New York City, broadcast globally online at TuneIn Radio.

Patrick made his acting debut in the feature film Peepers, a supernatural thriller written and directed by industry veteran Andy Ferullo, now available exclusively on Amazon Instant Video. Beyond his career in the music industry, Patrick is also known around the world as a contributing writer for Black Belt Magazine, the original and iconic magazine of the martial arts, where he has written numerous cover stories and has interviewed many of the top stars and champions of the UFC.

Patrick is currently in the process of writing his first book, a biography on his great-uncle, former New Jersey Governor Harold Hoffman, who was in office from 1935-1938 during the final months of the Lindbergh Kidnapping Trial, known to history as the Crime of the Century. Patrick recently appeared on The Travel Channel’s hit show, Mysteries at the Museum, to discuss the Lindbergh Kidnapping.

Chris Kudela is a mainstay on the indie-rock/pop scene. He recently released his 6-song EP, Write It Over, and it’s been garnering some high praise: Write It Over is a great project from this pop-rocker, and my former city of residence – Philly – ought to be proud of their native son, writes Shaine Freeman of I Am Entertainment magazine. The Indie Rock Cafe compares the experience of listening to Write It Over to …driving down the boulevard with the top down on a beautiful summer day. The EP was recorded at Portrait Studios in northern NJ with producer Chris Badami, and it includes performances by some incredible musicians and great friends. A blend of the power pop and alt-country/roots rock that Kudela loves so much, the songs on Write It Over run the gamut from all-out anthems like Greenroom and TKO Chicago to raw, stripped-down offerings like the reimagined Ring of Fire and the bluesy, barroom romp Wine & Whiskey. Chris is currently touring in support of this project.
