Brice Rosenbloom :: BOOM Collective
BOOM Collective is a New York based live music booking and production company. Showcasing an eclectic mix of artists and an all-inclusive aesthetic palette, BOOM Collective is dedicated to providing ideal concert experiences for both performers and audiences.
Launched by Brice Rosenbloom in the fall of 2006, BOOM Collective (formerly boomBOOM Presents) brings a broad array of live music to thousands of New Yorkers every year around the city. Rosenbloom's prolific booking expertise within clubs and concert halls is complemented by artistic curating credentials in the performing arts world, representing varied interests in jazz, world, experimental, rock, electronic, and emerging contemporary music. As an active presence in New York's vibrant cultural scene, Rosenbloom curated the intimate MAKOR music series beginning in 1999, nurturing developing artists such as Norah Jones, Lila Downs, Regina Spektor, Matisyahu, Antibalas, Amos Lee, Gogol Bordello, Peaches, Derek Trucks and others. Rosenbloom then collaborated for a year working shoulder-to-shoulder with Wynton Marsalis to establish the launch season of Jazz at Lincoln Center, Rose Hall at the Time Warner Center. From there Rosenbloom continued overseeing a myriad of bookings with artists including Andrew Bird, Sharon Jones, The Bad Plus, Brazilian Girls, Keren Ann, Kaki King, and Henry Threadgil at the iconic Knitting Factory in 2005. Rosenbloom was then inspired towards the creation of the NYC Winter Jazzfest which recently entertained over 4000 people at the 8th annual festival in January 2012.
BOOM Collective has additionally been instrumental in programming concerts at various venues and festivals around the city including NYC Winter Jazzfest, Undead Music Festival, Brooklyn Masonic Temple, Stuytown Music On The Oval Summer Concert Series, Town Hall, Celebrate Brooklyn, Central Park SummerStage, Hammerstein Ballroom, Travel+Leisure's Global Bazaar, Drom, The Bell House, Littlefield and at other venues. In 2008 Rosenbloom was appointed the co-Music Director at Le Poisson Rouge and helped launch the programming vision for the new West Village venue at the site of the former Village Gate. Rosenbloom and BOOM Collective continue to curate a broad musical vision on additional stages around the city and beyond. Rosenbloom resides in Fort Greene, Brooklyn with his wife Dina, sons Sydney and Lazer, and their neighborhood champion dog Shuggie.
