AM Radio Tribute Band

Friday, February 1, 2019 - 8:00 PM

Have you ever perked up when the radio plays a song that first hit popular stations when you were in middle school or high school? Do you turn the volume up to obnoxious levels and sing along?

AM Radio Tribute Band plays all of those songs from the 60’s and early 70’s that you grew up listening to… even the ones you’ve forgotten. AM Radio Tribute Band performs the music and vocals with an uncanny likeness to the original recordings as you’ll ever hear – Live!

?Be prepared for a ride in the way back machine, as AM Radio emulates the sounds, voices, appearances, slogans, images, and styles in authentic detail with outfits ranging from mod dress to multi-coloured flower power, psychedelic tie-dye shirts, go-go boots, long hair, and an amazing energy that urges you travel back to one of the most creative decades of our time. Feel yourself begin to turn on, tune in and experience what it was like to be a part of a generation that exploded like a pressure cooker full of color, creativity, and love.

AM Radio Tribute Band gives us a glimpse into the years when our brains leaped with joy at the music that’s come to define us. Those years may have passed, but each time we hear the songs we loved, the joy they once brought us surges anew.

Németh fearlessly crushes all barriers of style and genre with an album of original songs that defies all the usual pigeonholes.

Drawing from his strong influences in blues and R&B, as well as contemporary sounds in hip hop and rock & roll, John creates music that is personal as well as universal, and owes its origin to no one but John Németh. John’s songs are groove and melody-driven, laced with thoughtful lyrics and nuanced humor,

Most of all, he brings that voice. At once cheerful and soulful, audiences never forget it.

He creates his songs from melodies and phrases he draws from the sounds of life, from early-morning Memphis songbirds to the din of the city. For this album John brought his new songs to his great touring band, the Blue Dreamers, so they could hone the groove and finish building the album as a group. Under the simpatico guidance of Grammy-nominated producer Luther Dickinson (North Mississippi Allstars), Feelin’ Freaky emerges as a modern personal masterpiece.

Chatham County Line

Thursday, February 28, 2019 - 8:00 PM

Based on looks alone, Chatham County Line conjures a sepia-toned timelessness by huddling around a single microphone on stage, playing  traditional string band instrumentation while clad in suits and ties. But for nearly two decades, the Raleigh, NC-based outfit has consistently crafted top-notch, original modern acoustic music that draws upon American roots forefathers like bluegrass inventor Bill Monroe and folk innovator John Hartford while acknowledging its own members’ backgrounds in rock ‘n’ roll band

From elegant European concert halls to large American folk festivals, Chatham County Line has become a fixture on both sides of the Atlantic, where the musical relationships fostered by its consistent line-up are apparent through an unspoken chemistry that allows the freedom for improvisational flashes that seem as polished as the rest of its set.

Danielle Nicole Band

Friday, March 1, 2019 - 8:00 PM

Founding member, lead singer, and bass player of Kansas City blues-rock band Trampled Under Foot, Danielle Nicole stepped out on her own in 2015 with her debut album “Wolf Den.” In 2018, Nicole returns with a follow-up release via Concord Records. “I grew up playing the blues, and the blues is still a big part of what I do. But now I’m reaching out more and trying different things. It still sounds like me, but I’m stretching out a lot more than I have previously.”

Nicole’s distinctive, inventive bass work—which resulted in her becoming the first woman to win the Blues Foundation’s 2014 Blues Music Award for Best Instrumentalist, Bass—is the product of years of intensive roadwork. Although she had no experience with the instrument when she became Trampled Under Foot’s bassist, now she can’t imagine life without it.

“When I started doing my solo thing,” she continues, “someone asked me if I was gonna hire a bass player. No, of course not! I originally picked up the bass to keep Trampled Under Foot a family band, but I really fell in love with it. It was a huge challenge, and it still is.

But I really love being part of the groove and getting to sing on top of that. I had learned some stuff on acoustic guitar before I started playing bass, but I never really felt connected to it the way I Rounding out her band are longtime Danielle Nicole Band guitarist and multi-instrumentalist Brandon Miller, and her older brother Kris Schenebelen [Trampled Under Foot] on drums.

“I think that it’s a good time for the kind of thing I’m doing,” she states. “From my years of playing blues festivals, I’ve seen that younger and younger audiences are getting into the blues. I think that people want to hear authentic music again.”

Kilmaines Saints St Patty's Day Celebration

Friday, March 15, 2019 - 8:00 PM

Kilmaine Saints is a band formed on good whiskey and bad intentions. The brainchild of two members of a Harrisburg Pipe & Drum band, this side project was originally created with the sole intent of getting them free beer at St Patrick’s Day shows in the Central PA area (and might I add – mission accomplished). After incorporating the help of fellow members from the pipe band and other notable musicians from the area, they soon realized they were in for one hell of a ride.

Since 2009 they have continued to pound through blistering, high-energy live sets that keep people singing along, stomping their feet, lifting their pints and shouting for more.

 

Into the Mystic The music of Van Morrison

Saturday, March 16, 2019 - 8:00 PM

inspiration for musicians and countless others who choose to include them in the soundtracks of our their lives. “With one of the most revered catalogs in music history and his unparalleled talents as a composer, singer and performer Morrison’s past achievements loom large. But, as throughout his extraordinary career, how that past informs his future achievements and still stirs excitement and keen anticipation” Drawing from his complete collection of works, “Into the Mystic”, seeks to recreate the spirit and energy of Morrison’s Music and pay respects to a man who himself is a hard act to catch and most humbly follow in 2018. Bridging this gap, 8 piece- Into the Mystic, Led by vocalist Justin Panigutti (formerly of Bearquarium),

Pete Palladino (formerly lead singer with the Badlees)

Sunday, March 17, 2019 - 7:00 PM

Pete Palladino, one of Pennsylvania’s most successful recording artists, redefines what it is means to be a “vocalist.” Over his thirty year career, including his stint with now defunct rock band The Badlees, Pete has built his fan base one person at a time through his dynamic performance style. He naturally gravitated into acting with his debut in the film All In Time, which was released in 2016. Whether you are listening to Pete on your I-pod, watching him in a live concert, or seeing him on the big screen, he’s far beyond a singer with a magnificent voice and remarkable stage presence.

Reckless Kelly

Friday, March 22, 2019 - 8:00 PM

Understanding the virtuosity of Reckless Kelly requires the perspective of where the band has been. Cody and Willy Braun grew up in the White Cloud Mountains of Idaho. They moved to Bend, Oregon, and then migrated to that great musical fountainhead, Austin, Texas. ? The band’s co-founders and frontmen toured the country as part of their father’s band, Muzzie Braun and the Boys, as children. They performed on The Tonight Show twice. Their father taught his four sons a professional ethic – integrity, persistence, hard work and professionalism – honed over three generations. They overcame hardships, struggled for recognition, and learned the lessons of the trial and error that defined them.

In one sense, it’s remarkable in the way of any musician, athlete, or businessperson who bucks the odds. In another, though, it’s utterly natural that Reckless Kelly, born in the dreams of the two Braun brothers and their heritage but nurtured in the bumpy road of maturity, became the very essence of Americana music in all its far-flung glory. “We came along in that second wave of the movement,” Cody Braun says. “Son Volt’s album Trace had a major effect on us. People like Joe Ely, Ray Kennedy and Robert Earl Keen were always big supporters. Our goal was to make music that had a country vibe but a solid rock edge.”

In the end, all the recipe required was to just add water. Water facilitates life. It enriches the soul. As Music Row magazine proclaimed, “In my perfect world, this is what country radio would sound like.”

“This” is Reckless Kelly.

Loudon Wainwright III

Saturday, March 23, 2019 - 8:00 PM

Loudon Wainwright III has an illustrious career, highlighted by more than two dozen album releases, a 2010 Grammy for Best Traditional Folk Album for High Wide & Handsome: The Charlie Poole Project, and two Grammy nominations for I’m Alright(1985) and More Love Songs (1986). His 2012 recording, Older Than My Old Man Now, was named one of NPR’s Top 10 Albums of the Year. In 2014, Haven’t Got the Blues (Yet), marks his the 26th career release to date.

Wainwright is perhaps best known for the novelty song “Dead Skunk (in the Middle of the Road)”, and for playing Captain Calvin Spalding, the “singing surgeon”, on the American television show, MA*SH. His songs have been recorded by Bonnie Raitt, Johnny Cash, Earl Scruggs, Kate & Anna McGarrigle, Rufus Wainwright, and Mose Allison. He has collaborated with songwriter/producer Joe Henry, on the music for Judd Apatow’s hit movie Knocked Up.

Loudon penned music for the British theatrical adaptation of the Carl Hiaasen novel Lucky You. He composed topical songs for NPR’s Morning Edition and All Things Considered and ABC’s Nightline, and recorded several songs for the soundtrack of HBO’s Boardwalk Empire. As an actor, Wainwright has appeared in films directed by Martin Scorsese, Hal Ashby, Christopher Guest, Tim Burton, Cameron Crowe, and Judd Apatow.

“Mr. Wainwright has proved to be far and away the most candid diarist among the singer-songwriters who… brought confessional poetry into popular song… Mr. Wainwright wrings more human truth out of his contradiction than any other songwriter of his generation.” – New York Times

Barefoot Movement

Sunday, March 24, 2019 - 7:00 PM

Heartfelt, energetic, and down home. Heralded by CMT Edge as “one of the most promising bands on the bluegrass scene,” the music of the Nashville based group The Barefoot Movement is as down to earth as their intention for members of their audience: sit back, relax, take your shoes off, and stay a while. All the worries and frustrations of the world melt away as this charming, acoustic band takes listeners back to a simpler place and time. Whether you’re seeking emotional ballads or rip-roaring barn-burners, you can expect a collection of music that offers something for everyone. With two full length albums, an EP of traditional music, several cross-country tours, and appearances at some of the top bluegrass festivals in the United States already under their belt, the possibilities for this act are endless. The group has enjoyed almost non-stop touring including a trip to Burkina Faso, Africa where they were guests of the American Embassy, and in September of 2014, they received a Momentum Award, naming them “Band of the Year” by the International Bluegrass Music Association. Their show is as fun to watch as it is to hear. The smiles on the faces of the band are obvious displays of the joy and excitement they feel when performing and the audience shares in the fun. With effortlessly executed transitions, the pacing between the softer and more vigorous numbers constantly has fans on the edge of their seats.

The Mauch Chunk Opera House welcomes Tennessee-based special guests, The Barefoot Movement, back for a second performance this year, on Friday, September 4th at 8 PM.

Reminiscent of the Dixie Chicks, The Barefoot Movement is the one and only opening band ever to play the Opera House that has received not only one, but two standing ovations for their brilliant performances. They are anything but a standard bluegrass band, despite their 20-something ages.

Jim Thorpe musician and bandleader, John David Ambrose, opens the show. His set will be marked by popular favorites and stirring originals, beautifully sung and played.

Their songs range easily from traditional Appalachian music to bluegrass, folk, country and pop, thrilling you with their tight three-part harmonies, gorgeous instrumental riffs, and catchy vocal hooks.

Barefoot Movement’s unique blend of skill, innovation, and charisma has earned them appearances at festivals across the country, a coveted place on tour with The Milk Carton Kids, and performances with luminaries like The Carolina Chocolate Drops, Steve Earle, and Del McCoury. The US government even joined the mix, selecting them in 2014 as cultural Ambassadors for their international Arts Envoy program.

Kick and Banjo

Thursday, March 28, 2019 - 8:00 PM

Brian “Nugget” Gorby and Patrick “Pappy” Biondo have teamed up, blending groove and tradition. Formerly with the Hackensaw Boys and Cabinet respectively, they are uniquely well-qualified to perform this music.

Gary Hoey

Friday, March 29, 2019 - 8:00 PM

World-renowned rock guitarist Gary Hoey’s first break came in 1987 when Ozzy Osbourne liked Hoey’s tape enough to fly him to LA for an audition. Although Zakk Wylde wound up with the gig, Ozzy recommended Hoey move to LA where he was certain he would get noticed. So he did – thanks Ozzy – and it paid off. In 1992 Gary’s cover of “Hocus Pocus” rocketed into the Billboard’s Top 5 Rock Tracks.

With a collection of 19 albums it’s no wonder Gary Hoey is listed as one of the top 100 guitarists of all time. In 1994 Hoey scored the successful “Endless Summer II” soundtrack for New Line Cinema. In 2012, he produced and co-wrote The Queen Of Metal, Lita Ford’s latest release “Living Like Runaway” for SPV records to rave reviews. As Music Director for Rock n Roll Fantasy Camp, he’s worked with legends like Joe Perry, Roger Daltrey, Yes, blues icon Johnny Winter, Robben Ford, Leslie West, and KISS drummer, Peter Criss. And he has toured and traded licks with the likes of Jeff Beck, Brian May of Queen, Ted Nugent, Joe Satriani, Steve Vai, Peter Frampton, and Dick Dale.

Hoey has explored many styles in his career, from hard rock to rock to surf to prog, and with 2013’s “Deja Blues” he came home to the blues. His latest, 2016’s “Dust & Bones,” is an exuberant fusion of blues and rock. But whatever style he plays, one thing is certain, Gary Hoey is a fiery, charismatic player who connects with the crowd.

 

The Janis Joplin Experience

Saturday, March 30, 2019 - 8:00 PM

Coco Montoya and Tinsley Ellis

Thursday, April 4, 2019 - 8:00 PM

Guitar One Magazine calls guitarist/vocalist Coco Montoya “the hottest southpaw in the blues” and raves about his “master touch and killer tone.” The Boston Globe succinctly states that Montoya’s music is “hot, blistering soul.”

From his early days as a drummer to his current status as one of the top-drawing guitarists and vocalists on the blues-rock scene, Montoya earned his status through years of hard work and constant touring. John Mayall recruited him as his guitarist in the legendary Bluesbreakers, and Montoya spent the next 10 years touring non-stop, proving himself to be a world-class guitar master in one of the most renowned blues bands in existence. The rest is history!

After three records with Mayall as a member of the Bluesbreakers, Coco decided in 1993 it was time to take the lessons from his two musical fathers and begin to sculpt a solo career. In 2000, Coco took his music up a notch and signed with Alligator Records, the country’s top blues label.

In 2009, Coco Montoya found a new home in the old world. Germany’s premier blues label, Ruf Records, signed the guitar giant and is poised to bring Coco Montoya’s heart to a world audience. I Want It All Back was the first step in that commitment.

“This is an exciting journey,” said Coco. “To my fans who love my guitar, I say come to me with open ears. The guitar is still there, but it’s not the only voice I have. Listen to me as an artist who is growing and grow with me.”

Nick Moss Band Featuring Dennis Gruenling

Saturday, April 6, 2019 - 8:00 PM

Nick Moss has been recognized as one the great guitarists of his generation, garnering accolades from Buddy Guy and praise from Jambase, Relix, and Gratefulweb.com among many others. His recording career spans decades and his albums are staples at blues radio outlets worldwide, and are now in rotation at stations with jam and rock formats.

Nick Moss Band has a legion of fans that flock to his shows, knowing that each night will be a grand musical experiment. There will be sonic textures to discover and new sounds to stir the soul.

After receiving his first harmonica as a gift from a family friend while in his teens, Dennis Gruenling had heard his first blues record and his life was never the same! Working in local blues bands in and around Teaneck, NJ in the early ’90s, he quickly gained a reputation as a young rising star on the local blues scene.

Through the years, Gruenling has shared the stage with many top names in the blues & roots world, such as Pinetop Perkins, Snooky Pryor, Homesick James, Nappy Brown, John Mayall, Little Sammy Davis, A.C. Reed, Mick Taylor, and Jimmy Dawkins, as well as contemporary blues masters such as Rod Piazza & The Mighty Flyers, Rick Estrin/Little Charlie & The Nightcats, Kim Wilson, Rusty Zinn, Steve Guyger, Greg Piccolo, Mark Hummel, and now — Nick Moss!

Popa Chubby

Friday, April 12, 2019 - 8:00 PM

Popa Chubby’s collection of jet-fueled originals just grew with the release of his new CD, “The Catfish.” Popa Chubby offers up 12 tunes that embody the badass attitude that defines the King Of The New York City Blues. “The Catfish” delivers punch after punch of musical inspiration drawing on 25 plus years of street smarts and road worthy musicianship. It embodies what makes Popa Chubby who he is. Regal and Delicious, the recording shines with multiple flavors and worldliness. “It’s about 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.

Prince - Dean Ford and the Beautiful Ones

Friday, April 19, 2019 - 8:00 PM

Dressed 2 the 9’s, Dean Ford embodies PRINCE with every fiber of his being, giving you a show as close as you will ever get to the real thing. Ford and company perform all the hits you know and love, including the “Purple Rain” album in its entirety. But, it’s more than just the songs. He’s got the look, the moves, and the sounds down jaw-droppingly well. So well, you’ll forget it’s only a tribute.

It all started in 2012, when Dean Ford and his musician friends put on their first of many sold out tributes to the Purple One in Portland, Maine. The show, lovingly entitled “Purple Brainz” is now held annually at the prestigious, Port City Music Hall. Past shows have featured Prince and The Revolution’s own keyboardist Matt “Doctor” Fink. Lately, Ford has been sticking with a rotation of his core band, The Beautiful Ones. Though, he and the band have plenty of surprises up their frilled sleeves.

The Beautiful Ones have performed at venues including: Port City Music Hall (Portland, ME), BAE (Bangor, ME), Down Under Club (Bangor, ME) The Cannery Music Hall (Southbridge, MA), Ralph’s Rock Diner (Worcester, MA), The Dover Brickhouse (Dover, NH), River Jazz Cafe (Plains, PA), Funk ‘n Waffles (Syracuse, NY), Vernon Downs Casino (Vernon, NY), Haven Lounge (Orlando, FL), 1904 Music Hall (Jacksonville, FL), Calistoga Grill (Pointe-Claire, QC, Canada), and more.

Hear – and see – for yourself what it sounds like when Dean Ford’s doves cry.

Dangermuffin

Thursday, May 2, 2019 - 8:00 PM

While it may be futile to try to define Dangermuffin’s sound, it is possible to pinpoint the themes that inspire much of band’s music, and perhaps no theme is as prominent and consistent as nature, including the ocean, the sun, and the mountains…all ancient and powerful and capable of immeasurable and profound healing. These ideas, running like threads through almost every Dangermuffin album, together form the basis of some of the band’s most deeply held principles and teachings: respect the earth, stay open to the universe, and strive for healing. Not coincidentally, according to Lotti, if Dangermuffin’s music could accomplish just one thing, it would be to heal.

Lotti and Mike Sivilli connected in 2007 to form the genesis of the band now known as Dangermuffin. Lotti, already an award-winning songwriter, and Sivilli, a prodigious and fast-rising guitarist on the Charleston, South Carolina music scene, quickly spotted a unique musical synergy. To Lotti’s profound lyricism and moving vocal delivery, Sivilli added an equally expressive six-string “voice,” creating distinct sonic textures and phrasing that both punctuated and enriched Lotti’s lush and oftentimes reflective musical storylines. Indeed, the roots of the Dangermuffin sound had started to take form, and the two artists would collaborate that year (with Jim Donnelly on drums) to record the band’s inaugural and widely acclaimed album, Beermuda.

Since 2017 and the release of Heritage, the band has undergone perhaps its greatest evolution, both in format and sound. Most notably, it started touring with a new drummer (Adam Williams), freeing up Sandifer to play the upright bass, congas, and other percussive world instruments. Having the flexibility to play as either a trio or quartet has allowed the group to shift between intimate, acoustic experiences and rockin’ electric journeys, liberating setlists and empowering the band to play a greater variety of tunes live. For the band and fans alike, this has led to some of Dangermuffin’s most inspired, exciting, and surprising performances of its career, and has planted the seed of an epic live album release in 2019—the universe and its energies permitting!

Wishbone Ash

Friday, May 3, 2019 - 8:00 PM

Touring and producing outstanding progressive rock for over 40 years, Wishbone Ash remains one of Britain’s most remarkable bands. Always best appreciated live, their twin-guitar sound, honed back in the seventies, is one of their defining and enduring traits.

Wishbone Ash are considered to be one of the major innovators of the harmony twin lead guitar format.
