Let’s Jam: Beijing’s Night


I loved Beijing from the moment I heard them. Another beautiful thing about social media is the people a belle has the chance to connect with. When we “met” Beijing, it was pure chemistry. We were two belles excited to hear new music and they were a group of musicians excited to share their music. Eclectic. Stirring. Smooth. Acoustic Rock. These are a few words to describe this talented band of 4 gents from New Haven, CT. The band is comprised of Eric Thornberg (vocals/guitar), Thom Smith (guitar/synths), Bill Pruchnicki (drums) and Jack Hoopingarner (bass).

Their first EP, It’s Not So Simple ushered the group onto a stage where one could feel the passion in their music, and made die hard hip hop lovers rock out to their alternative tunes.

The alternative rock band brings a fresh take to their latest musical offering, Night. The album cover is ominous, showing a clinic where diseased children went to die in the 1900’s in Connecticut. Expect to hear about love and loss with some nice riffs here and there. With titles such as “acrobat,” “violent,” and “triggers,” you’re in for a musical ride.

It’s both a pleasure and a shame to listen to Beijing and know that they haven’t packed out arenas yet (keyword: YET). It’s pleasing to know of the group and share what seems like a little secret with y’all, but it’s a shame the masses have not rocked out to this indie group. The album weaves together various elements of love–unrequited love, the heartbreak of love, and more importantly, the hope of love.

Check out Beijing and give them a listen. I’m almost certain that your ears won’t be disappointed. The beauty of life is opening ourselves up to new things. Let a new alternative rock band be one of those new things…
