FRANCIS DUNNERY
with Skip Denenberg

Francis Dunnery operates as a Multi-Media Artist. His work combines music, humor, video, literature, performance art, philosophy and blistering electric guitar. Although impossible to pigeonhole, his work always reflects his deep commitment to personal Freedom and Individuality.

Concert - $25 online advance / $30 door
Dinner - 6pm, Showtime - 8pm

Francis first hit the public stage back in the eighties as lead vocalist and guitarist for the progressive rock band ‘It Bites’. He has since gone on to have a very successful musical solo career spanning thirty years. During this time he has written, produced and performed music with some of the most successful artists of his time, artists such as Led Zeppelin’s singer Robert Plant, guitar legend Carlos Santana, Squeeze’s stalwart Chris Difford, Stone Roses’ singer Ian Brown, R&B superstar Lauren Hill, Genesis guitarist Steve Hackett as well as guesting with a host of bands and artists such as Yes, Hootie and the Blowfish and The Syn. Francis is accomplished in his own right, turning out ten engaging albums of original yet diverse composition and three DVD’s.

Alongside his music career, Francis is also a long time student of philosophy, logic, psychology and astrology. Francis was a pioneer in offering online consultations via Skype as early as January 2004, six months after Skype was launched, a practice that still continues successfully to this day.

Francis is also the president and founder of ‘The Charlie and Kathleen Dunnery Children’s Fund’, a charity he set up to honor his parents. The CKDCF is dedicated to children’s health and wellness providing grants and donations that directly benefit the children of West Cumbria, England. Every October, Francis and his friends from around the world, gather in Cumbria for a benefit concert and charity walk in support of the CKDCF.

A serial risk taker, in 2005 Francis broke new ground once again when he initiated his House Concerts Series, offering his fans the opportunity to host intimate evenings of music, psychology, philosophy, astrology, all topped off with his tremendous humor. The shows became so popular that Francis has performed approximately a hundred and fifty shows a year for the past twelve years. He has taken these unique, inspiring and entertaining shows to front rooms throughout the world! Places as far reaching as New Zealand, Australia, UK, Denmark, Sweden, Norway, France, Spain, Italy, Holland, Switzerland and Germany as well as every corner of the USA and Canada. The House Concert shows have become an international phenomenon. Although his style can be brash and at times irreverent, he’s also capable of singing achingly beautiful music.

In February 2016 Francis launched 'The Francis Dunnery Radio Show' on the Progzilla internet radio station. The show is steeped in expansive and progressive subject matter as well as expansive and progressive music and humor.

Present day, Francis is more than ever committed to the personal freedom and individuality of himself and his audience. He continues his studies towards his psychology doctorate at East Stroudsburg University and plans on dying when he’s around ninety six.

Skip Denenberg is the songwriter for the Philadelphia Phillies, and can be heard on WIP’s Sports Radio’s "Morning Show". His popular children’s songs are regularly featured on WXPN’s “Kid’s Corner”

 It isn’t writing the theme song “Don’t Bet The Farm” that Skip Denenberg remembers most about Farm Aid. Nor is it playing the song for over 5000 people with Willie Nelson and the band backing him up, nor being described by Willie as one of his favorite new songwriters, nor even sharing the stage with his heroes Steve Earle, Neil Young, and Willie Nelson. The most memorable moment for Skip came after the show when the caterer approached him backstage to tell him how much Skip’s songwriting had touched him, and he just had to come back and tell him so.

ROCKIN JOHNNY BURGIN BAND

“I’m knocked out! I already liked what you were doing, but you’ve really moved WAY up. What did you do, go to the crossroads or something?”
–Charlie Musselwhite

Concert - $15 online advance / $18 door
Dinner - 6pm, Showtime - 8pm

Rockin Johnny Burgin is one of the hardest touring and well recognized traditional Chicago blues guitarists and singers today.  Since his start in the 90s on Chicago’s West Side with blues singer Taildragger, he has become a leading blues attraction throughout the United States and Europe.  He’s been featured in major media outlets such as The Chicago Tribune, WGN’s After Hours with Rick Kogan, The Illinois Times, and KPFA’s Blues by the Bay. Rockin Johnny is a Delmark recording artist with 7 CDs to his credit, including his latest critically acclaimed release, “Neoprene Fedora”, of which David Mac of Blues Junction said, “Everything is thrown into this ambitious ocean of ideas.. On Neoprene Fedora the contemporary and traditional drink out of the same glass– my highest recommendation “.  Johnny currently does close to 250 shows a year worldwide.  He is also in demand as a session player and has recorded with many blues greats including Billy Boy Arnold, Taildragger, Paul DeLay, Jimmy Burns, Andre Williams, Eddie Taylor Jr., Jimmy Lee Robinson and others.

Johnny Burgin grew up in Starkville MS and Greenville SC, and while he was still in high school, he got to see many touring blues bands such as Guitar Jr, Gatemouth Brown and Eddie Clearwater. His father was an actor and folk musician and taught him the basics on guitar.  He went to University of Chicago with the intention of becoming a writer, but a different path unfolded and he fell headfirst into the Chicago blues scene.  After learning from the masters by touring with such artists as Pinetop Perkins and Howlin’ Wolf drummer Sam Lay, he put his own band together.  Things started happening fast after The Rockin Johnny Band (with guest vocalist Jimmy Burns) took a Monday night residency at the Smoke Daddy in Chicago’s Wicker Park neighborhood.  Their original, energetic approach made them a strong local draw week after week and year after year.  The atmosphere the band generated was so electric that the prestigious local label Delmark Records offered them a contract after hearing just one set.

Since those days, Johnny played the Chicago blues festival many times, toured Europe regularly, and has headlined festivals all over the US.  Over the years, he has developed from a blues guitar slinger and local blues hero into a fully fledged singer, harmonica player, a dynamic and engaging bandleader, and a mature, seasoned guitarist.  One look at Johnny’s tour schedule confirms his status as an in-demand blues performer.  Rockin Johnny also plays solo and duo shows, has a great West Coast Meets Chicago package with rising harmonica star Aki Kumar, and does guitar and blues workshops worldwide.  He puts on the kind of satisfying and exciting show that only years of touring can develop.  Elmore magazine remarked on Johnny’s “commanding vocals and stinging guitar”, but Elvin Bishop may have said it best: “his guitar style is raw and rude and real—on the vocal side, a nice original style–he’s damn good!”

DAVEY O

2016 & 2017 Nominee - Sportsmen's Americana Music Foundation, Jim Lauderdale Songwriter of the Year Award

A Bright Horizon Line" - #3 among the Top 10 albums, and the #26 Most Played Artist of 2017 by Dan Herman, Radio Crystal Blue, Tacoma, WA

Concert - $15 online advance / $18 door
Dinner - 6pm, Showtime - 8pm

It's no surprise that Buffalo, NY born and bred songwriter Davey O. has been described by Buffalo News critic Jeff Miers as having "a journalist’s eye for detail and poet’s ear for the well-turned observation".  Embarking on a decade-plus journey that has resulted in a collection of justly-earned, highly introspective songs, Davey crafts pure Americana that is not of the social and political consciousness, but drawn from the deep well of experience and human emotion - no hackneyed story lines, no insincere polish, just an unflinching poet's look at life. The characters woven seamlessly into stories of which the song itself becomes the soundtrack for the movie playing inside the listener's head.

Armed with a steady, rhythmic pulse on his Gibson guitar, a battered straw cowboy hat and a no apologies rust-belt work ethic, Davey puts rubber to asphalt, entertaining attentive, diverse audiences at listening rooms, coffeehouses, nightclubs, festivals, colleges and universities throughout the Northeast, Midwest, Midsouth and Atlantic U.S. - performances that result in engagement and communion between performer and audience through story and song.

The hard work has paid off with recognition by way of a New Folk Finalist Selection at The 2013 Kerrville Folk Festival, an Official Showcase Selection at the 2011 Folk Alliance Conference and coveted opening act slots for Ellis Paul, Amy Speace, Tracy Grammer, Eilen Jewell, Suzanne Vega, Eric Andersen, Cheryl Wheeler, Sloan Wainwright, Kim & Reggie Harris, The Kennedys and Poco.

In August 2012, Davey released - "Testing For Rust" which grabbed the attention of Folk & Americana DJ's across the country, earning him top grades on the Folk DJ Charts. "Testing For Rust" debuted on FOLK DJ Radio Charts at #20, made the Top Sellers on CD Baby, hit the Airplay Direct Charts Top 50, and spent 11 weeks in the Top 25 on the Roots Music Report (RMR) for State of NY.  "Testing For Rust" was also placed on the 2012 "Best of" lists by radio stations WVPE (Elkhart, IN), WHRW (Binghamton, NY), 90FM (Stevens Point, WI) and WMSC (Montclair, NJ). 

In September 2014, Davey release a 7 song EP, "No Passengers", co-produced by Neale Eckstein at Fox Run Studios in Sudbury, MA over the course of a day and a half. Like its predecessor "Testing For Rust", "No Passengers" also captured the hearts of folk DJ's around the country, debuting as a Top 20 album on the Folk DJ Charts for September 2014 and remaining a Top 25 Contemporary Folk CD on the Roots Music Reports for the better part of five months. "No Passengers" also received critical acclaim with inclusion on the "Best of 2014" lists of no less than six radio stations - WHRW (Binghamton, NY), WAMC (Albany, NY), WMSC (Montclair, NJ), Radio Crystal Blue (Tacoma, WA), WVPE (Elkhart, IN) and The Sundilla Radio Hour (Auburn, AL).  “No Passengers” was also graded among the Top 100 Contemporary Folk Albums of 2014 on the Roots Music Reports, landing in the #25 position.

Equal parts songwriter and storyteller, Davey has also earned the respect of his peers for his constant dedication to the art of song craft as well as for his incredible work ethic, which finds him performing close to 140 dates per year.

Davey is looking to build on the success of his previous releases with the 2017 release of “A Bright Horizon Line” - his new, full length CD. Joined by veteran folk artists Tracy Grammer (background vocals), and Pat Wictor (dobro), as well as up and coming artists Matt Nakoa (piano), and Eric Lee (mandolin, fiddle), “A Bright Horizon Line” is a collection of 10 tracks (9 original compositions, and a cover of the Crowded House classic “Don’t Dream It’s Over”)  – each one taking the listener on an adventure via music and words, strung along the common thread of this journey we are all on. Co-produced with Neale Eckstein at Fox Run Studios, the production values and arrangements are clear, concise, and cinematic in their quality, successfully capturing the elements of both contemporary and traditional folk music.

BENJAMIN VO BLUES BAND

"Favoring the deeper and darker blues, Benjamin’s band offers heavy swinging beats, smoky piano accompaniment, powerful vocals, and haunting lead guitar lines. From slow burning electric blues, to high energy slide guitar ditties, to mighty delta numbers, you are guaranteed a dynamic show."
- Rich Ruoff, Lancaster Roots and Blues

Concert - $15 online advance / $18 door
Dinner - 6pm, Showtime - 8pm

Born on October 20th, I guess that makes me a Libra-Scorpio cusp, huh? Don't know if that's a good thing or a bad thing, but at least I'm alive and well. Well, I've got the blues. And with the help of a few of my good friends, I was able to get some of it on tape. A lot of it is slow burning electric blues but I threw in a couple acoustic pieces in there as well. Hope you enjoy, thanks for listening - Benjamin

ASARAN EARTH TRIO

RUN THE WILLOW


“A cappella singing shines on its own with three gem-like voices such as these. … This amazing recording epitomizes the idiom ‘You could have knocked me over with a feather.’ ★★★★★”

"Lush and ethereal harmonies layered over earthy instrumentation will take you to other times, other places"

Concert - $15 online advance / $18 door
Dinner - 6pm, Showtime - 8pm

ASARAN

So a Brazilian, a Hungarian and an Italian walk into a bar…

A collective of vocalists from different corners of the globe (as well as the set up to a great punchline), Asaran Earth Trio is a group dedicated to singing beautiful music from around the world. With New York City as their figurative ‘bar’, Asaran came together out of the desire to take different traditions in new directions, combining folk elements together with the adventure of group improvisation and each member’s musical ‘history’. Together they sing, clap, play percussion and are known to cause groups of strangers to laugh, cry, sing, dance and shake some groovy shakers. Asaran features Anne Boccato from Brazil, Artemisz Polonyi from Hungary and Chiara Izzi from Italy. They love to share their music and stories all around the Earth – in living rooms, theaters, houses of worship, festivals, on the street and even in actual bars.

Anne Boccato is a vocalist, composer, pianist and percussionist born and raised in São Paulo, Brazil. She studied jazz piano at the State University of New York – Purchase College, and began pursuing voice when an injury kept her from playing piano for some time. Through a long rehabilitation process, Anne discovered her passion for “musical wellness”, bringing it to bear on all aspects of her playing and singing. She loves creating strong, energetic grooves while maintaining a feeling of ease and gentle strength, no matter how complex the music may seem on paper.

Anne has been living in the United States for over 10 years – immersed in the arts scene in New York City, teaching piano lessons and performing her own music, as well as collaborating with some wonderful musicians. She founded Asaran Earth Trio out of a desire to reach into our collective history found in tradition, while bringing different influences together to continue writing our stories into the future.

Her aim is to connect people to themselves and to each other through her compositions, be they instrumental or songs sung in Portuguese, English or Spanish. Her love of languages is matched only by her love of watching her students go “aha!” and smile with satisfaction.

Artemisz Polonyi is a singer and composer deeply immersed in jazz, folk, and choral music.

She fell in love with singing harmonies (her favorite being the middle voice) during her childhood in Hungary, when she was surrounded by the Kodaly tradition, singing folk songs and choral music.

Currently living in New York City, she gets a kick out of bringing various styles and musical traditions together in her performing and teaching.

These days she mostly sings the highest notes with the professional chorus of Brick Presbyterian Church of NYC, and the Composers/Conductors Choral Collective. She can also be seen singing and playing percussion with her beloved world music group: Asaran Earth Trio.

Artemisz has been pursuing her passion for teaching by leading her voice studio for more than a decade. In her voice and musicianship classes she enjoys helping students find their own unique, beautifully fearless voices.

She considers herself very lucky to be able to bring music and the joy of singing to the public schools of New York City through the Musical Introduction program of the 92Y, and the Students Compose Opera program of the Metropolitan Opera Guild.

Award winning Italian singer and songwriter Chiara Izzi has been described by Jazz Times as “a talent to be heard, admired and anticipated” after the release of her debut album, Motifs. She started her musical path in Italy by learning to play the piano and performing from an early age. Thanks to a string of performance opportunities in Italy and abroad (Belgium, Switzerland, France, United States, Finland, Germany), Chiara has acquired a vocal mastery of not only the jazz tradition, but also a wide variety of contemporary styles. Thus, she has developed a unique sound that allows her to interpret pieces by taking the musical content from different genres (jazz, pop, Mediterranean sounds), blending them, and exploring it all through a strong personality that unifies the songs in a nuanced and sophisticated manner.

Chiara is currently based in New York and performs regularly around the city in prominent jazz venues including the Iridium, the Apollo Theater, Smalls, and the Bar Next Door, with musicians such as Kevin Hays, Eliot Zigmund, Warren Wolf, Anthony Wonsey, Pat Bianchi, and Yotam Silberstein, to name a few. She has also caught the attention of and received praise from Quincy Jones, Bobby Watson, Benny Golson, Joel Frahm, Aaron Goldberg, David Kikosky, Greg Hutchinson, Jonathan Kreisberg, Dado Moroni and many others.

RUN THE WILLOW

While spending their first 3 years crafting their recent debut, Run the Willow has developed a unique blend of earthy instrumentation and angelic harmonies that hinge around a profound, yet simple lyric. Composed as a 6-piece, the band’s singer-songwriter style songs carry the dynamic qualities of classical chamber music, the textures and tones of indie rock, the impactful lyrics of traditional folk, and soulful melodies/harmonies delivered by Vince Bruinsma and Rebekah Foster. Their album, ‘A Living Dichotomy’ ranges from full and powerful songs to careful and sudden arrangements dealing with a duality in most of us—a desire to settle and invest in a community versus satiating a wanderlust and desire to roam.

MIKE TV (GET SET GO)

The obvious darkness of songs like "Die Motherfucker Die" and "My Wasted Life" belie a humor that oscillates between wry, ironic, and macabre, creating a sort of emo for grown-ups with a hearty dose of sangfroid. It's the kind of music that you either get or you don't, leaving Get Set Go with a very devoted pond of fans in an ocean of indifference and dislike. Mike TV is aware of the divisive nature of his music and embraces it.

Concert - $15 online advance / $18 door
Dinner - 6pm, Showtime - 8pm

Get Set Go is a band formed in 2002in Highland Park, Los Angeles, California. They are generally seen as indie rock. Their main songwriter is Michael "Mike TV". The band is known for their tendency to mix dark lyrics with upbeat or catchy melodies. Their songs have been featured on several episodes of Grey's Anatomy, appearing on the first two volumes of the series' soundtrack with the tracks "Wait" and an amended version of "I Hate Everyone".

The band has gone through a few lineups and name changes, originally called Vermicious K, and then All Your Bass Are Belong To Us, before settling on Get Set Go. Currently, Get Set Go is the solo project of Michael Torres.

DUKES OF DESTINY

“Philly’s pride and joy... the city’s best and best-loved blues band.”

Concert - $15 online advance / $18 door
Dinner - 6pm, Showtime - 8pm

In 1985, five young, local musicians got together and began playing old blues songs in a rambling three-story house in Philadelphia. They decided to take the act on the road as The Dukes of Destiny, a name they got from a matchbook cover urging the reader to “Be the Captain of Your Own Destiny.” At first, The Dukes of Destiny played house parties in Germantown, generating interest by word of mouth. A gig at the now-defunct Taker’s Café in Germantown launched their public career, and 30 years later, they are still playing some of the hottest, most danceable blues and old school soul in the Philadelphia area. Today The Dukes of Destiny reign as Philadelphia’s longest-lived and best loved blues act. Featuring John Colgan-Davis, Arlyn Wolters, Rich Curtis, Bob Holden, "Chicago" Carl Snyder and SJ Kuzmicki.

CINDY ALEXANDER
with Kevin Fisher

“Cindy is the personification of what it takes to be a superstar. Her writing is insightful and poignant. Her stage presence is utterly unforgettable, and her musicianship is flawless. She also possesses that rarest of charisma that one cannot manufacture: she was born to perform.”
– David Lawrence, Host and Executive Producer of NET MUSIC COUNTDOWN

Concert - $17 online advance / $20 door
Dinner - 6pm, Showtime - 8pm

Born and raised in Los Angeles, Cindy was trained at the acclaimed USC School of Drama but realized quickly that there was enough “drama” in real life and the best part she could play… was herself. So, she wrote what is now 9 cd’s (and added to numerous compilations and soundtracks) worth of her life, which she has performed all across the United States, Japan, Germany, Ireland, and islands as far as Barbados and Guantanamo Bay. Music has always been the key to her adventure, and she soaks up the stories of those she meets, the cultures, the geography, the spirit and the down and dirty details of the road she travels. As a seasoned writer and performer, she has tackled numerous subjects – not only the classic singer/songwriter confessional fare of dysfunctional relationships, marriage, and motherhood, but also her personal discovery and recovery from breast cancer, the perils of the entertainment business, classic literature, sexuality, spirituality, history and the human condition. There is no topic which is out of bounds – she tells The Truth.

“P-nut,” as she is affectionately known by her fans, has a voice that defies her petite stature. Classically trained, this coloratura soprano hits the high notes like an angel but also bellows with rich, velvety tones in the lower half of her over three octave range. She’s a storyteller, and her show benefits from the stories, humor and banter with the audience in between songs as it is does from the music and exceptional execution. Cindy Alexander CONNECTS, and her relationship with her fans has funded her recording projects and fueled her continued success as a touring indie musician.

She’s won a multitude of awards including David Foster’s/NBC Star Tomorrow, L.A. Music Awards Songwriter of the Year/ Independent Pop Album of the Year/ Producer’s Honors – Best of Last 25 Years Female Singer-Songwriters, All Access Magazine’s Best Female Pop Vocalist, Just Plain Folks Song of the Year/Female Artist of the Year, L.A. Music Critic’s Best Female CD (3 time winner) and Best Pop/Rock Artist. Even with accolades and a “record deal” as a prize for winning a reality show, she’s stayed independent on her own JamCat Records, which found the perfect partner in Blue Élan Records in ‘14.

Cindy has shared the stage with John Hiatt, Bacon Brothers, America, Suzanne Vega, Joan Osborn, Rick Springfield, Beth Hart, Everclear, The Bangles, Edwin McCain, Marc Cohn, etc. and has appeared on compilation cd’s along side Sarah McLachlan (Chilled Sirens- Water Music Records), Aimee Mann (Eclectic Cafe – Water Music Records) and Norah Jones (Sunday Brunch – Treadstone Records). She has also appeared on soundtracks: Sugar & Spice (Trauma Records) and has been featured in films (Here on Earth, Smokers, Sugar & Spice, Dorm Daze II, People I’ve Slept With, My Trip Back to the Dark Side etc.) and TV (Party of 5, Chasing Farrah, So You Think You Can Dance, VH1/MTV).

http://www.cindyalexander.com/

Kevin Fisher is a multi-platinum selling songwriter. Rascal Flatts, Sara Evans, Uncle Kracker and many others have recorded his songs. As and artist himself and a writer for others, his songs are being played all over the world.

His music has been featured on TV (True Blood, Pretty Little Liars, America’s Funniest Home Videos), in movies theaters, (Angriest Man In Brooklyn, Dear Dumb Diary, Frozen Ground) and on stage (Unbeatable: A Musical Journey, Empowerpack).

He also hosts a successful Songwriting Workshop at schools, music stores, and private homes. He lives in Los Angeles with his wife and two children.

GENE SMITH BAND

"One of the top 5 stage performances I've ever seen, up there with the Tokyo String Quartet in their heyday, and that Led Zeppelin reunion in '85. How they did it, after camping in a field for an entire week prior, is amazing, but The Gene Smith Band did it. See these guys as soon as you can."

Concert - $15 online advance / $18 door
Dinner - 6pm, Showtime - 8pm

Gene Smith has been writing songs for forty years; real songs about real life, some serious, some more whimsical. He has performed many of them with groups as varied as Boris Garcia, Psych-A-Billy, Sunhill Down, The Turnips, and Buddha’s Kitchen. All of these unique bands imparted their own flavor to the performances.

In 2013, Gene approached bassist Chris Henderson and asked if he would be interested in joining him on a project that would reimagine and come up with new arrangements of this vast catalog, performing them the way he envisioned the songs in his head when he wrote them.

Thus the journey that is “The Gene Smith Band” began. With contributions from a rotating cast of some of the Philadelphia Area’s best instrumentalists who join them for shows, The Gene Smith Band is realizing Gene’s vision of presenting these songs as they were originally conceived.

HOUSE OF HAMILL

Whether House of Hamill is playing songs from their debut album "Wide Awake" (September 2016) or stomping through a set of original jigs and reels from their follow-up "March Through Storms" (2018), their chemistry onstage is always engaging and often hilarious. Spend an hour listening and you'll leave with tired feet, a huge smile, and a new appreciation for the versatility of folk instruments in a modern context. House of Hamill is on the bleeding edge of a new generation of traditional musicians.

Dinner - 6pm, Showtime - 8pm


Rose Baldino and Brian Buchanan met 10 years ago, late one night backstage at a theatre in rural Pennsylvania.

Brian's band Enter The Haggis and Rose's group Burning Bridget Cleary were sharing a stage that evening, and the two bonded over a love of Irish fiddle tunes, Radiohead, and 4 AM whiskey. Their paths crossed a dozen times over the next decade on the road, but it wasn't until the Folk Alliance 2014 conference in Kansas City that they finally became musical collaborators. Burning Bridget Cleary's guitarist and drummer had their flights canceled at the last minute, and Rose (in desperation) asked Brian to grab a guitar and join her onstage. The two performed with virtually no rehearsal for over an hour, and their connection was powerful and immediate. A few months later Brian moved from Canada to Philadelphia, and as a tribute to the first tune Rose ever taught Brian, House of Hamill was born.

Brian and Rose are both accomplished traditional fiddle players and classical violinists, and despite being young, have over 25 years of writing and performance experience between them. Together, they write unusual new fiddle tunes and exciting, unpredictable original songs while also breathing new life into traditional and contemporary songs. Both are confident and unique lead vocalists, and the blend of their two voices in harmony is hypnotic and irresistible.

BOBBY KYLE AND THE ADMINISTERS
with Tattar, Tucker, Moog and Jackson

Bobby Kyle’s mentors and heroes would be proud to know that the torch has been passed to a very deserving,  well respected blues man, who continues to perform and travel far and wide to educate audiences of all ages to the music that he loves - THE BLUES - Highly Recommended!

Concert - $18 online advance / $22 door
Dinner - 6pm, Showtime - 8pm


Bobby has had a passion for the blues all his life and has devoted much of it to pursuing that passion.

​In today's music scene there are hundreds of talented guitarists vying for the brass ring, and there are many, many great players out there. But there are very few with the heart and soul of Bobby Kyle. Blunt and to the point, Bobby's singular styling resonates with maturity, talent and inspiration, bringing us a genesis of contemporary music that is characteristically all his own.

Kyle, who now leads his own high-energy band at clubs and festivals around the Northeast, spent eight years touring the world with the late guitarist, songwriter and singer Johnny 'Clyde' Copeland. Copeland was one of contemporary blues' more gifted songwriters, breaking new lyrical and thematic ground with each new album he recorded through the 1980s and '90s.

Bobby was backing up Bill Dicey by the late seventies, and the pair later became a duo. In the early eighties, Bobby joined the house band at the Stuffed Pepper, a Tampa Bay blues mecca. There he worked with such luminaries as James Peterson, Johnny Shines, Raful Neal, Mary McClain Smith, and Tabby Thomas.

In 1984 Handy Award Nominee Eddie Kirkland invited Bobby to join his band. After six years with Eddie, Bobby joined the band of Grammy Award winner and 2017 Blues Hall of Fame Inductee, Johnny 'Clyde' Copeland. Bobby performed with this legendary Texas bluesman on major-label recordings, and in concerts, festivals, and clubs worldwide until Johnny's death in 1997.

Between touring dates with Eddie Kirkland and Johnny Copeland, Bobby took his solo act on the road, performing his own material at nightclubs and festivals throughout the United States, Canada, and Europe. Bobby's emotional, soulful voice rings true, and is forged with a raw, distinctive quality all his own. Honest and forthright, Bobby's original songs tell the story of the every person, with a passion born of life, love, and loss.

Recently, Bobby has had the great honor of being inducted into The Blues Hall of Fame.
​He now tours with his band, The Administers, who are comprised of Everett Boyd on bass and Marc Copell on drums.

Tattar, Tucker, Moog and Jackson

Tattar Tucker Moog Jackson is dedicated to honoring the root of music exploration. Whether it’s traditional Blues, Ragtime, Rock n Roll or Boogie-Woogie, it all comes back to the root. TTMJ takes audiences with them on a trip through the American roadhouse of beat, melody and honest musical expression.

Scott Tattar has been playing drums and singing since he was eight-years-old. He was born and raised in Philadelphia and is proud to call it his home today. His credits include keeping time for The Choppers, The Pleasure Dotz, The Bonnevilles, The Fercockter Cowboys, Alan Mann, Kenn Kweder, Zan Gardner, Rob Perna, Jamison Smoothdog, The Vice Grips, Seve and Jack Quigley & His Only Friend. His influences include Charlie Watts, Levon Helm and Johnny Otis.

Paul Tucker has played in Philly area bands since High School. He is happy to be playing with the ensemble of Tattar Tucker Moog Jackson. Prior to TTMJ, he played with Trouble Is and the Longrider blues bands. His influences include New Orleans pianists like Professor Longhair, Allen Toussaint and James Booker.

Carol Moog played for many years before launching the No Alibi Blues band in 1984. With vocalist Zan Gardner, the band quickly developed a loyal following at some of the area's top music venues. Beginning in 1987, Moog continued to play with what became the original Zan Gardner Blues Band (where she first teamed with Tattar). The high energy blues and funk band appeared with such legends as John Lee Hooker, Koko Taylor, Junior Wells, Buddy Guy, Jimmy Rogers, Leon Russell/Edgar Winter, John Mayall and Roy Buchanan. Moog has also appeared with such notables as Saffire, Ronnie Earl, Guy Davis, Kelly Joe Phelps and John Hammond. Her influences are varied and include Sonny Terry, Little Walter, Sonny Boy Williamson, Paul Butterfield, Hank Crawford, Fats Domino, Mose Allison, Muddy Waters, Dinah Washington and James Cotton.

Zita Jackson originally hails from Oklahoma City, OK and has lived in Philadelphia since 1985. She is the youngest daughter of a Southern Baptist Minister and has a strong musical background from singing and directing in the church choir at her father's church. She has played clarinet and flute in the past and is currently taking guitar lessons. Over the years, Zita has sung with various church choirs in Oklahoma, Illinois and recently in Philadelphia, where she was the Assistant Minister of Music in a local Baptist church. Her influences include Billie Holiday, Nina Simone, Dinah Washington, and Rosetta Tharpe.

LONNIE SHIELDS BAND

Lonnie Shields is among the younger generation of Mississippi blues men keeping the music alive. Shields started his career learning from traditional musicians like Big Jack Johnson, Sam Carr and Frank Frost, but he also brings in more modern R&B and soul influences into his music.

Concert - $15 online advance / $18 door
Dinner - 6pm, Showtime - 8pm


Lonnie Shields is truly one of the finest of the next generation of the blues. He cut his blues teeth performing with The Jelly Roll Kings. His recording career has led him through a number of studios from Memphis and Clarksdale to tours all over the world. This Delta born guitarist, singer and songwriter's style is just the opposite of his demeanor. Lonnie comes across as a mild mannered southern gentleman with a laid back nature. On stage he is transformed into an extraordinary entertainer moving to his music and feeding off the energy of the audience. His music is deeply rooted in gospel, soul and R&B while his sound, like his soul is never too far from the home of the blues.

Lonnie was the first Delta artist that Rooster blues picked up after moving to Clarksdale, Mississippi in 1987. His CD “Portrait” was released in 1992 (named Album of the Year by Living Blues Magazine) and reads like a who’s who of Delta Blues Performers. Over the years, Lonnie has played with many Blues greats including Elvin Bishop, Sam Carr, Sonny Rhodes, Eddie Shaw and Big Jack Johnson just to name a few. In the years following his release of “Portrait” Lonnie’s career skyrocketed. He has performed all over the world and has released a string of impressive CDs featuring his soulful, “down home Blues” with a contemporary, yet juke-joint feel.

Lonnie’s hard work has paid in a fine compilation of music and a reputation of a man with the heart and soul of the Blues. Lonnie now resides just outside of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania but always has and always will be the Keeper of The Blues wherever he lays his guitar.

Currently, Lonnie is working on a new album featuring a young blues based artist, Jesse Loewy. This upcoming CD will consist of Lonnie's original material in addition to a tribute to BB King, Tyrone Davis, and Johnny Taylor, plus a bonus track in honor of Al Green (all of whom were extremely influential and inspirational to Lonnie's musical career).

DUSTIN DOUGLAS AND THE ELECTRIC GENTLEMEN

Led by the transcendent lead guitarist/singer/songwriter Dustin Douglas (Lemongelli, The Badlees), The Electric Gentlemen (Tommy Smallcomb - Drums & Matt "The Dane" Gabriel-Bass) leave even the most discerning music fans with little left to ask for at the end of any live show!

Concert - $15 online advance / $18 door
Dinner - 6pm, Showtime - 8pm

Capturing the vibe of late 60’s and 70's blues-laced rock-n- roll, Wilkes-Barre Pennsylvania’s premier power blues-rock trio, Dustin Douglas & The Electric Gentlemen mix retro-style and groove a-la (Jimi Hendrix Experience, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Led Zeppelin, Black Crowes) for a lightning charged, vintage style all their own.

Led by the transcendent lead guitarist/singer/songwriter Dustin Douglas (Lemongelli, The Badlees), The Electric Gentlemen (Tommy Smallcomb-Drums & Matt "The Dane" Gabriel-Bass) leave even the most discerning music fans with little left to ask for at the end of any live show!

Since the time he learned to walk Dustin Douglas has had a guitar in his hands and a song in is his soul. Performing his first show at the age of 13, Dustin has never stopped, first gaining popularity with his original power trio, Lemongelli. Lemongelli released three independent records and shared the stage with Heart, Cheap Trick, Def Leppard and Eddie Money to name a few.

Becoming one of the most sought after live and session guitarists in Northeastern Pennsylvania, Dustin joined the legendary Pennsylvania rock band, The Badlees in which he recorded "Epiphones and Empty Rooms" and supported Bob Seger on his 2013 arena tour.

In 2014, Dustin Douglas released "Black Skies and Starlight" his first solo record, to rave reviews. Self proclaimed as "A mix of big guitars, with pop-laced hooks and an alternative attitude," "Black Skies and Starlight" propelled Dustin back into the lead roll, leaving his Side-man days behind.

The following year, Dustin was ready to get back to his blues-rock roots. The self-titled, debut record from Dustin Douglas & The Electric Gentlemen sold out of its first pressing garnering attention from fans and critics alike. Tracks such as "Baby Girl" and "Ain't Your Poppa's Blues" found Dustin Douglas right back where he belongs, leading a bombastic power trio.

Summer 2017 found the release of BLUES 1, a collection of classic blues covers including cuts by John Lee Hooker, Muddy Waters, Albert King and Freddie King, as well as a new original song. With BLUES 1 Dustin Douglas & The Electric Gentlemen have cemented themselves in the blues world.

With a full length album already in the works and set for release in 2018, Dustin Douglas & The Electric Gentlemen are taking the industry by storm.
