EVERY SUNDAY
     JAZZ BRUNCH WORKSHOP     NOON 'TIL 4PM

Our Sunday Jazz Brunch Workshop is a magical, musical phenomenon that everyone should experience. The host trio of Burgess, Stetz, and James (featuring the notable talents of pianist & vocalist Greg Burgess, bassist Bill Stetz, and drummer Tom James) welcomes musicians of all kinds to join in the musical adventure. Live and inspirational, you'll watch, listen and smile as songs take shape and evolve in an unrehearsed performance ... a real workshop to hone skills and express musical vision. Many guest musicians & vocalists are always on-hand to "sit in" as soloists or to be called upon to create a whole, new trio, quartet or larger ensemble, too. It's a ritual that you'll want to be part of every Sunday! Because of the popularity of our Sunday brunch, reservations are strongly encouraged. Please call us at (570) 326-4700. Brunch is served from 9AM-2PM.

Thursday, December 28     Ramblin' Dan Stevens     8-11PM


Ramblin' Dan Stevens performs a mix of traditional finger style blues, americana and originals and has entertained audiences throughout the United States, Germany, UK, Canada, and U.S. Virgin Islands. His unique style of "bottleneck" slide playing popularized by early Mississippi Delta bluesmen includes use of a homemade, three-stringed "Cigar Box Guitar" and one stringed "Diddly Bow," both primitive blues instruments. A finalist in the International Blues Challenge on Beale Street in Memphis, TN, and protege of the legendary folk and blues icon Dave Van Ronk, Dan has been lauded as a raconteur and for the authenticity of his approach. Dave’s career has recently been highlighted by the release of the Coen Brothers movie “Inside Llewyn Davis”, set in the Greenwich Village scene in the 60s. Also, Dan plays regularly in the New York City Subway System in locations such as Times Square and Grand Central Terminal.

THEY'RE BACK!!  Nate Myers & The Aces have been established in Central PA for nearly 15 years. Lead by vocalist Nate Myers and his harmonica, the band creates a loose, casual atmosphere in which everyone can relax and have a good time! Whether the audience prefers to sit back and listen or get up and “shake that thang,” there is something for everyone. Nate Myers is an excellent musician, songwriter, and performer – the consummate entertainer who keeps the audience’s attention throughout the entire performance. The wide variety of styles, energy, and sincerity in his music allows him to fit into nearly any musical genre. On a typical evening, audiences can hear influences from many forms of American music – blues, funk, hip hop, rockabilly, country and improvisation. Nate Myers & the Aces take all these styles they love and weave them into a tapestry of their own. "Nate Myers & The Aces have rightfully gained their place as one of the most entertaining and respected bands in Central Pennsylvania, with a sound that is smoking hot." - Jeffrey Allen Federowicz, The Daily Item
