NEW YORK – March 13, 2013 – PRLog — Bernie Furshpan was born in Israel and emigrated to the U.S. when he turned 7. His youth was spent on the streets of Brooklyn and in high school, his extracurricular activities were involved in volunteering at Coney Island Hospital. He always desired to play drums and his brother bought him his first snare drum and a symbol. He went to Stony Brook University and majored in sciences as a pre-med student. He worked for the college newspaper and magazine as an graphic artist and cartoonist. Bernie’s first professional job in the arts was as a drummer when he was in college and he played at local bars around the Stony Brook area. Bernie’s first professional job as a producer and promoter of the arts was at Lincoln Center. He produced and promoted a successful Russian concert, immediately followed by an even more successful historic blues concert at Avery Fischer Hall. His first professional job as a stand up comedian was at Gotham Comedy Club in 2008. Prior to his ownership and management of the Metropolitan Room, Bernie Furshpan was a Doctor of Chiropractic.
