Cold Chocolate

January 4, 2020 @ 8:00 pm


Cold Chocolate, led by Ethan Robbins and Ariel Bernstein, is a genre-bending Americana band that fuses folk, funk, and bluegrass to create a unique sound all their own.

A classical violinist from age four, Ethan Robbins fell in love with the guitar when he turned fourteen and his father bought him five quintessential albums: The Band’s “Music from Big Pink,” Bob Dylan’s “Bringing it all Back Home,” John Hartford’s “Steam Powered Aereo-plane,” Hank Williams “Live at the Grand Ole Opry,” and the Grateful Dead’s “Workingman’s Dead.”

Percussionist Ariel Bernstein, who earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in Percussion for Performance from the State University of New York, Geneseo, is a master of restraint who brings a light and tasteful groove to Cold Chocolate’s tunes, filling out their sound and heightening the band’s live energy.

Punctuated by tight harmonies and skillful musicianship, and with a focus on songwriting, Cold Chocolate has quickly gained recognition for their original music and high-energy shows.
