About This Event
Common Ground with JIM
Common Ground is a folk-rock band from New York City whose unique brand of Americana is highlighted by powerful vocals, tight harmonies, and the playful use of instruments. The musicians teamed up after lead singers Christina Maida and Brian Hayman crossed paths during a Sunday open mic night at an East Village bar called Common Ground. The bar sadly closed down a few months later, but the band that it brought together took its name in tribute. In early 2019, Common Ground released its debut full-length album Wayward, featuring the band’s genre-blending original repertoire from murder ballads to love songs. In 2021, Common Ground is excited to be back to writing music and performing live after a pandemic-driven hiatus.
JIM is a DC-born band that vacations in NYC and Boulder, CO. JIM molds five different musical tastes into one infectious sound, aiming to capture that live-music energy with crisp, organic tones.
