The band Prototype is a duo that brings their interpretation of feel good music from the past, present and future.

Brett Higgins sings, beat boxes and loops the rhythm section from scratch while Steve Newbury loops his guitar lines infusing them together to make a unique beat.

“We are grateful at each and every opportunity to do our part to share and keep live music alive and well,” said Higgins. “Come see us live and we will help you understand the importance of the live experience.”

Prototype has debut album “You Are My Soul” is available for download at major music sites and they anticipate the release of their second album in May.

“Our looping gives us a four piece sound,” said Higgins. “Interaction with the crowd and infectious energy is what makes our shows great.”

The Burgin Connection concert series was developed by guidance counselor Travis Kern to bring music, history and community involvement to the school.

“This initiative is free and open to the community,” said Kern. “The Burgin Connection is a Kentucky music series, held in our school library.”

Kern developed the program in conjunction with the apprenticeship program through Danville Community Arts.

Kern and his apprentice Eliza Marsh book acts to perform and offer an in show interview of the performers.
