Squeezing Out a Living

Burlington, Vermont - July 1, 2007

A musician performing in Burlington this month combines two very different styles as he squeezes out a living.

Julian Hintz performs under the name JULZ-A. He's from New York City but is appearing at Nectar's in Burlington for the next three Saturdays. He raps while playing the accordion. JULZ-A has performed at the world-famous Apollo Theater, rapping about how difficult it sometimes can be to fit in. The performer believes he's the only touring artist who combines these musical forms.

Hintz says, "It's definitely not your usual mixture of sounds, instrument, and voice. And most people don't believe it when I tell them. And sometimes even after they see it they don't believe. But I always tell people they have to see it to believe it."

You can see it, and believe it, for yourself. JULZ-A will take the famous stage at Nectar's July 7th, 14th, and 21st at seven o'clock each night. Those shows are free.
