Popa Chubby

Mauch Chunk Opera House
jim thorpe, pa

Popa Chubby’s collection of jet-fueled originals is about to grow with his CD release party at the Opera House.

The forthcoming release of I’m Feelin’ Lucky: The Blues According to Popa Chubby exemplifies his guitar mastery. “The excitement and the feeling of raw power. All I can tell you is you need rock and roll in your soul and I am the man in control. The Blues are alive and well and Rock and Roll will never die! Are you ready to rock?”

As the Philadelphia Inquirer put it, “Truly a bluesman for the new millennium, Popa Chubby has an abiding affection for the tradition but uses it only as a springboard for his distinctive style.” That style translates into blues-rock numbers about, in Popa’s words, “love, life, betrayal, diesel, jet fuel, marriage, murder, stress and passion,” subjects that many would say are the only ones that matter.

His performances these days have never been more tempestous and soulful. Despite his imposing presence, the shaven head, tattoed arms, and performance style he describes as “the Stooges meet Buddy Guy, Motorhead meets Muddy Waters, and Jimi meets Robert Johnson,” Poppa Chubby is an endearing character who is one of the genre’s most popular figures.

Since that night Ten has performed well over 550 shows over 10+ yrs and has firmly established themselves as the premier touring Pearl Jam Tribute act in the US …

Craig Thatcher Cream Tribute

Mauch Chunk Opera House
jim thorpe, pa

Guitarist Craig Thatcher, along with bassist/vocalist Wayde Leonard and drummer Don Plowman, has put together an explosive Cream tribute show that includes all of Cream’s greatest hits like “Sunshine of Your Love,” “White Room,” “Crossroads,” and “Badge.” The band also plays Cream’s jams: “Spoonful” “I’m So Glad” and “Toad.” They pay homage to the world’s first blues/rock/psychedelic super trio with this spectacular show.

Cream was formed back in 1966 with Eric Clapton, Jack Bruce, and Ginger Baker. They introduced the concept of the power trio, which laid the foundation for the entire heavy rock genre. In their all-too-brief time together Cream changed the 60’s music scene forever with four classic studio albums: Fresh Cream, Disraeli Gears, Wheels of Fire, and GoodBye. Then they would not play together again until 2005.

However, Craig Thatcher has helped fill the void, especially poignant with the recent passing of bassist and vocalist Jack Bruce, by creating this stunning tribute. Relive the days of the rock supergroup, Cream!

An Evening With Savoy Brown

Mauch Chunk Opera House
jim thorpe, pa

British Blues/Rock pioneer Kim Simmonds and Savoy Brown celebrate 50 continuous years, 45 albums, and more than 5,000 gigs – from the Royal Albert Hall to Carnegie Hall to the Fillmore East and West and now back at Mauch Chunk Opera House!

But Kim Simmonds is not living in the past; he’s challenging himself and his band to reach new heights and find higher ground.

“Savoy Brown is a very musical band,” Simmonds says. “We’re not comparing ourselves to others. We appeal to an audience who wants to hear what we are up to now, what we are rehearsing, creating as a band. I think my guys and my team is empowering me to do this.” That’s what Kim lives for and invigorates him – playing for audiences who are hungry to listen for new heights in artistry – not just living off 50 years as an architect of the British hard blues scene.

“Whether I like it or not, I think my destiny is to keep doing what I’m doing, play in clubs and theaters where people pay their hard eared money to hear us give them one-hundred and ten percent.” On September 18, the 45th release by Kim Simmonds, The Devil To Pay hit the stores to show what 50 years giving one-hundred and ten percent can do.

“I had a vision, when I started the band back in 1965,” he reflects, “The concept was to be a British version of a Chicago blues band. And the exciting thing now is, that vision is still alive.”

Cornmeal

Mauch Chunk Opera House

Cornmeal has never been a band to shy away from reinvention and after over a decade, they prove just that as the band sets out with a newly reformed lineup, a fresh energetic sound and heads back into the studio to finish their long-awaited latest studio album after almost six years.

A nationally-recognized live music institution, Cornmeal is heavily influenced by American roots and folk music, and seamlessly blends lightning-fast tempos and impeccable harmonies into an unrivaled live performance that continues to expand upon the five-piece acoustic-electric group’s vast musical repertoire. While steeped in the traditions of the past, Cornmeal continues to forge a path all their own, pushing the boundaries of bluegrass, Americana, and folk for a whole new generation of music lovers. With a growing fan base and ever-evolving sound, Cornmeal challenges the recipe of bluegrass and live performance.

With the release of their debut album “In The Kitchen” in 2001 by Livin’ Live records, Cornmeal secured its place as one of the top bands in its genre. 2003’s “Tales from Magic Stone Mountain” garnered much critical attention and became a staple on college and AAA top 10 lists throughout the country. In May of 2006, Cornmeal released their third album, “Feet First”, which became proof positive that Cornmeal’s tenure on the road brought on an honest and mature sound. Produced by former guitarist Kris Nowak and bassist Chris Gangi, “Feet First” features strong songwriting and musicianship while demonstrating their ability to stylistically ride the fence and bring it back home without missing a step.

40 Story Radio Tower - Brett Alexander

Mauch Chunk Opera House
jim thorpe, pa

Another installment of 40 Story Radio Tower hits the stage for summer night of totally unique brand of theater. The brainchild of Joe Ferron Hiatt, writer and playwright, along with the addition of some of the most original thinkers and talent from northeast Pennsylvania to Philly to Brooklyn and more, and this will make a fantastic evening of original work put before a live audience and recorded live for download on Itunes.

Reverend Jefferson

Mauch Chunk Opera House
jim thorpe, pa

Reverend Jefferson is the premier tribute to San Francisco’s legendary Jefferson Airplane. Their psychedelic sound virtually defined the Haight-Ashbury community and the rapidly expanding revolutionary fervor of the times. The album, Surrealistic Pillow, contains both “Somebody to Love” and “White Rabbit ”. Grace Slick, a beautiful, irreverent and often caustic performer, with her siren-song, banshee wail, urging us to “Feed your head,” and her harmonies with bandmates Paul Kantner and Marty Balin became the benchmark of the Airplane sound, which was and remains one of the true voices of a generation. Three members of the Reverend Jefferson band: Joanne Lediger, David Frye, and Scott Petry, are longtime rabid fans of the Airplane, and at the urging of manager conspired to put together what for them, is a labor of love. Vocalist Joanne Lediger (Joe Cocker, Dr. John, Vassar Clements, Jack Casady, Derek Trucks, Cornell Dupree, John Popper, Stir Fried etc. ) has the power and skill to capture the intensity and nuance of Grace Slick at the height of her powers. Ms. Lediger brings Slick’s ice and fire to life like no one else. Guitarist/vocalist David Frye (Gil Parris, Bernie Williams, alternative folk/rockers, The Kennedys, performed with Johnny Winter, Buddy Miles) works with Ms. Lediger to weave together their voices, and having sung together so many years, meld effortlessly. Guitarist David Berg (Dark Star Orchestra, Paul Butterfield, Tiberius, Steve Kimock, Buddy Cage, Vassar Clements) has been a mainstay on the jamband circuit from its beginnings, and is a graduate of Manhattan School of Music. He brings the fiery snap and howl of Jorma Kaukonen’s distinctive and melodic solos. Bassist John Cassano actually studied with the Airplane’s dazzling and thunderous bassist, Jack Casady, and performed with Jack’s partner in Jefferson Airplane and Hot Tuna, Jorma Kaukonen. John does his instructor proud with his mastering of a bass guitar great’s sound. Scott Petry (Cornell Dupree, Larry Coryell) is the foundation supporting the music as it soars and when it whispers. Mr. Petry is a schooled, seasoned and empathetic musician, using the drums in an almost symphonic approach.

Cash Is King - a tribute to Johnny Cash & the Tennessee Three

Mauch Chunk Opera House
jim thorpe, pa

Legendary country rebel Johnny Cash comes to life in the re-creation show “Cash Is King”. With a career spanning half a century and countless hits, including “Folsom Prison Blues,” “I Walk the Line” and “Ring of Fire,” and the list goes on. The Man in Black became a musical icon. Now you can experience the father of Outlaw Country as he was in his prime, from his Sun Records days to his historic concert at Folsom Prison.

Singer Brian Chicoine captures Cash’s trademark baritone, while his band delivers the infectious, driving rhythm of the Tennessee Three. Of course, it wouldn’t be a Johnny Cash show without Mrs. Cash, June Carter, brought to life by Vicky St. Pierre on such classic duets as “Jackson.” With authentic costumes and stories from Cash’s eventful life, Cash Is King is the true Johnny Cash experience.

Enter the Haggis

Mauch Chunk Opera House
jim thorpe, pa

Toronto roots rock band, Enter The Haggis, has proven itself to be a true grassroots success story, and never has this been more evident than with the group’s latest release, The Modest Revolution. Inspired entirely by the content of one Canadian newspaper, and funded entirely through the generous contributions of loyal fans, The Modest Revolution represents the latest step in the group’s exciting musical journey.

Seven albums and a decade plus on the road have seen Enter The Haggis evolve from wildly popular local band to established international touring act, with a sound that lies somewhere between the fiercely creative and contemporary soundscapes of Radiohead, and the heartfelt story telling and infectious grooves of The Band. Their formula for success has been a simple one: record great music, back it up with inspired live performances, and tour constantly. It’s this uncompromising commitment to their music and fans that has seen the band garner top ten charting positions on Billboard, Amazon, and iTunes; major television appearances such as A&E’s Breakfast with the Arts and Live with Regis and Kelly; and their very own PBS special.

Eclectic. Electric. Roots Rock Reinvented.

John Nemeth Band

Mauch Chunk Opera House
jim thorpe, pa

Boise, Idaho is hardly the place anyone would conjure up as a hotbed of soul music.

But for John Németh, it’s where his love for the genre began—and the starting point for a journey that’s taken him from his first gigs fronting a teenaged band to five Blues Music Award nominations in 2013 alone and 2015 award for Best Soul Blues Album.

“Memphis Grease,” the long-awaited follow up to Németh’s fourth solo studio release, 2010’s “Name The Day!,” embodies everything that sets this artist apart from the revivalist pack: it’s innovative and unique while epitomizing the absolute best of the genre. It’s a deeply forged amalgamation of scorching harmonica-driven blues and sweet blue-eyed soul ala the Box Tops or Roy Head, delivered via two fistfuls of originals and a trio of carefully chosen covers, including Roy Orbison’s “Crying,” reinvented here as a slow-burning soul number that matches anything that came out of circa-late 1960s’ Muscle Shoals.

“When it comes to more traditional styles of music, people expect to hear a tribute record. But you can get into a real rut if you’re just doing rewrites,” Németh says. “We’re creating fresh music here. Our arrangements sound just like they would back then, but what we’re doing is so much more innovative.”

Németh takes modern soul from a simmer to a full boil.

Multi-instrumentalist David Lindley performs music that redefines the word “eclectic.” Lindley, well known for his many years as the featured accompanist with Jackson Browne, and leader of his own band El Rayo-X, has long championed the concept of world music. The David Lindley electro-acoustic performance effortlessly combines American folk, blues, and bluegrass traditions with elements from African, Arabic, Asian, Celtic, Malagasy, and Turkish musical sources. Lindley incorporates an incredible array of stringed instruments including but not limited to Kona and Weissenborn Hawaiian lap steel guitar, Turkish saz and chumbus, Middle Eastern oud, and Irish bouzouki. The eye-poppingly clad “Mr. Dave’s” uncanny vocal mimicry and demented sense of humor make his onstage banter a highlight of the show.

Sons & Heirs - Smiths and Morrissey Tribute

Mauch Chunk Opera House
jim thorpe, pa

by Rob Sheffield, Rolling Stone

The Sons & Heirs – NYC’s finest, truest band devoted to the music of the Smiths and Morrissey. Handsome devils. Stalwart lovers for sure. On the guitar, Ravi Marr. On the drums, Flax Joyce. On the bass, Fredo Rourke. And on the microphone, Ronnissey. They’re twice as much fun as an actual Morrissey show — because they bring even more heart and enthusiasm to these songs than the man himself.

The Sons & Heirs have played this music all over the world, from Tel Aviv to Los Angeles. Their Valentine’s Day event Unloveable has become a New York ritual—every year it’s the toughest ticket in town. In 2015 they headlined the international Smiths-Morrissey convention in Hollywood. Every show is different. Every show permanently changes my mind about this or that song’s brilliance. These guys have single-handedly made “Alma Matters” one of my favorites. I have seen them destroy a room with “Miserable Lie.” I have heard them slay on a concert cruise. You have never been in love until you’ve seen a boat full of rowdy Smiths fans sloshing down the East River, bellowing “Panic” to the Statue of Liberty. (And you have never seen confusion until you’ve seen the boat’s crew sweeping up the flowers afterward.)

But wherever The Sons & Heirs play, they bring passionate love for the whole musical journey of Morrissey, Marr and their mates—the songs that saved our lives. That’s why they always bring out a crowd of fans who love the Smiths as much as they do. (Including, on at least one occasion, an actual member of the Smiths — Andy Rourke, who got up to play with them.) They invite the crowd to sing along, dance, invade the stage. There’s always a song I’d forgotten about, always a song that makes me think “well, they won’t top this one tonight,” until they do. They open my eyes, like a tattooed boy from Birkenhead.

The Sons & Heirs get the tiniest details right, but more importantly, they bring the spirit that makes this music immortal. They sing their lives, and probably your life, too. Definitely mine.

SPECIAL MUSICAL GUEST : SKIP MONDAY This duo now calls Scranton, PA. home. Award-winning songwriter, Kaylin Karr takes care of the guitar work and memorizes with her stunning vocals and Nathan Montella provides the percussion magic and backbeat to light up her music. Together, this duo blows audiences away with their undeniable talent, infectious melodies and an avalanche of soul-stirring lyrical creations and touching compositions that capture the listener.

Ruthie Foster

Mauch Chunk Opera House
jim thorpe, pa

From houses of worship to houses of blues, Ruthie Foster has always been a rafter-rattler. And with a soul-filled voice honed in Texas churches, she can move audiences to tears or ecstasy — sometimes in a single song. Her last two albums, 2009’s “The Truth According to Ruthie Foster” and 2012’s “Let It Burn,” moved the Recording Academy to deliver Best Blues Album Grammy nominations. Her latest, “Promise of a Brand New Day,” releasing August 19 on Blue Corn Music, could make her a contender once more.

“Promise of a Brand New Day” includes seven songs written or co-written by Foster, most of them “songs with messages – because that’s important to what I do,” Foster explains. “Maybe that’s from growing up with people like Mavis [Staples] and a lot of strong women who have come before me, who are great singers but also have a message. They give you something; they say something.”

Classic influences can be felt elsewhere, including “Second Coming,” a civil-rights protest song in the folk-gospel tradition, with handclaps and a strummed acoustic guitar. “When you see me talk about my country life and picking Mustang grapes, and referencing people like Mississippi John Hurt and Jessie Mae Hemphill, that’s a way of grounding myself,” she says. “People connect to that, and that’s when the energy starts building, and then I can get to the big stuff and have some fun and wave my dreadlocks around.”

She’s also toured and recorded with Warren Haynes, traded verses with Susan Tedeschi on “The Weight” during the Allman Brothers’ 2012 Beacon Theater stretch; and sang on an episode of the TV series Revolution. She first delivered a gorgeous “Angel from Montgomery” with Bonnie Raitt at one of Wavy Gravy’s annual SEVA benefits; then repeated it with her on The Road to Austin, a loving all-star tribute to the now-late Stephen Bruton that made its documentary debut in the 2014 South By Southwest Film Festival.

Such accolades and appearances reinforce the fact that Foster’s a blues-world rarity: an original voice who honors her forebearers, yet transcends gentrification. “Ruthie’s voice is such a singular, powerful instrument, and she has such mastery of it,” her producer Ndegeocello notes. “She can turn it on, belt it out and bring you to your knees, all in an instant.”

David Bromberg

“The reason man created stringed instruments. David touched them with a lover’s fingers and they moaned that true love right back at him. Wood and wire and flesh spoke.” – Jerry Jeff Walker on David Bromberg He’s played with everyone, he’s toured everywhere, he can lead a raucous big band or hold an audience silent with a solo acoustic blues. Born in Philadelphia in 1945 and raised in Tarrytown, NY, Bromberg began studying guitar-playing when he was 13 and eventually enrolled in Columbia University as a musicology major. The call of the Greenwich Village folk scene in the mid-’60s drew David to the downtown clubs and coffeehouses, where he could watch and learn from the best performers, including primary sources such as his inspiration and teacher, the Reverend Gary Davis. He became a first-call, “hired gun” guitarist for recording sessions, ultimately playing on hundreds of records by artists including Bob Dylan, Link Wray, The Eagles, Ringo Starr, Willie Nelson, and Carly Simon. Bromberg’s range of material, based in the folk and blues idioms, continually expands with each new album to encompass bluegrass, ragtime, country and ethnic music. His recent album “Use Me,” features David collaborating with friends like John Hiatt, Levon Helm, Los Lobos, Tim O’Brien, Vince Gill, Widespread Panic, Dr. John, Keb’ Mo’ and others.

Led by Richard Olate and his son Nicholas Olate, the Olate Dogs are a high-energy, fast-paced canine theatrical act filled with amazing dog tricks, human acrobatics and humor.

Embodying the American Dream, Richard grew up in South America in a poor family. He got his start as a young boy of 10 when he rescued his first street dogs and found he had a gift. He combined this gift of training dogs and compassion with incredible hard work. This enabled him to support his entire family by age 12 with his dog troupe. He came to the attention of a circus group and found himself performing in the United States at age 33. That is when the rise of the Olate Dogs began in earnest.

In the beginning they all lived in Charlottesville, VA, but now the members are spread throughout Virginia, Tennessee, North Carolina, and Louisana.
