Champagne Jerry, a.k.a. Neal Medlyn, has been named one of the top ten best performers in New York by Time Out, and been profiled by RollingStone.com, Brooklyn Vegan, the Village Voice, and Interview magazine. His aim is to continuously create and provide the most significant moments in everyone's lives. His albums and videos for his albums “For Real, You Guys,” “The Champagne Room” and “I’ve Grown” are available now everywhere. Collaborators include Max Tannone, Kathleen Hanna, Adam (Ad-Rock) Horovitz, Sophia Cleary, Farris Craddock, and the Ghost of Champagne Past. He has performed at the Brooklyn Academy of Music, The Kitchen, Union Pool, Pianos, Walmart parking lots; internationally in Vienna, London, and Hamburg; and as the musical guest on The Chris Gethard Show on Fusion TV. For the past decade, he has performed regularly at Joe's Pub in New York City, where he now hosts a regular show called Champagne Jerry’s Clubhouse. WNYC’s All Things Considered says: “Medlyn deals in theatrical miracles. He transforms the stuff of our celebrity-obsessed, media-saturated world into impossibly beautiful, absurdist happenings....He’s amazing.”
Champagne Jerry is a great rap band with a wild stage show that veers between comedic sexuality, tales of being an East Texas fuck-up, and weird-as-hell skits -- like a silly David Bowie or freaky Beastie Boys, or like Kanye West if Kanye rapped about driving a Chevette and taking lamaze. Champagne Jerry is funny enough for comedy clubs, tight enough for rock clubs, and weird enough for art venues. He tells audiences that all of their dreams will come true. Well, not all of them, but one. Maybe two.
