Chad Tarves (Born May 14th, 1992) is a new and upcoming singer/songwriter. Currently working as a solo artist, he is working on an acoustic album that puts back the word “song,” in “songwriter.” Chad has helped start an organization called PARTBEATS which is a student fund raising initiative to help provide other students with educational resources to help get a understanding of setting up concerts and other music events and to also raise money for the performing arts department at Berkshire Community College. Since graduating (2015) with an A.A. in Fine Arts music, and a certificate in Music Production, the club still continues today. Chad has performed at many open mics across New England, and New York while also hosting several of his own concerts. He also performed at Rock the Vote (2012), Rock On Events (2012- ), Third Thursdays in Pittsfield, Ma (2013- ), Johnson State College in Vermont (2016), Berkshire Community College (2012- ), and Various fundraising events.
