State of the Unity, Fan First Premiere w/ The Bergamot

Thursday, Jul. 14 | 8:00pm ET (7:00pm CT)


The Bergamot present the Fan First Premiere screening of their film State of the Unity, featuring a Q & A after the film hosted by Jon Goldman and an acoustic performance by The Bergamot.

Is unity possible? That is the question that launched the Brooklyn-based husband-wife duo The Bergamot on a quest that would take them to all 50 States during the 2016 election to unite people through the power of music, community, and collaboration.

What began as a simple idea in the band's 2002 station wagon brought about a profound revelation. What is unity and how can we as individuals on this planet reframe the way we perceive and understand it?

How The Bergamot connected people with their music, touring vehicle and collaborative works started a conversation around unity that continues to this day. Join them in this timely 50,000-mile unity tour in learning about human empathy, perseverance, and love that changed their lives forever.
