Thursday, March 28     The Susquehanna Jamcrackers      7-10PM

The Susquehanna JamCrackers are an acoustic string band, named after the famous lumberjacks of Williamsport’s Lumbering Era, who would walk out across the Susquehanna River’s floating logs, when they had to bust up a logjam by dropping in a lit stick of dynamite. With our angel-song fiddle, mandolin wind, banjo rain, driving acoustic bass, and finger-pickin’-good guitar, you might say we’re equal parts Americana, Folk, Bluegrass, and Country Gospel. We play River songs, Train songs, Love songs, Work songs, Earth songs, Heaven’s songs. We play some down and bluesy, some crisp and breezy, some high and lonesome; we play them all with sweet string tones and rich layered harmonies. The Susquehanna JamCrackers’ music is like the water splashing on a stone; like good Norwegian wood; like the Dutchman’s tea with whiskey; like rollin’ in your sweet baby’s arms; like a headlight on a northbound train; like toasting smores around a campfire: acoustically delicious, a special treat in every bite.

Saturday, April 13     Obvious Pocket     9PM-MID

According to the law of 'entrainment,' when fireflies land together on a single branch their lights start to flash in unison; over time clocks side by side will perfectly sync their second hands. Based in State College, PA, these four musicians came together. With the distorted blues riffs and Lennon inspired songwriting of Jim Kassab; the floating melodies and jazz chord flourishes of Dipak Sahoo, the funky grooves of Mr. Daniel Cashburn, Lorn Ray on keyboards, and the swinging song driven rhythms of Jason Halterman on drums, Obvious Pocket is a new yet familiar flavor of original jam music. Obvious Pocket is a journey of sound, attuned to the groove. It’s a focus of quality song writing that springs into spontaneous improvisation. It’s an experience. When you’re in the pocket, it’s obvious.

Friday, May 3     Keith Kenny      9PM-MID

If the audience at a Keith Kenny show were to close their eyes for the performance they would swear that there was a full band on stage. The audience, however, is too busy dancing to the one-man acts layered guitar riffs, foot stomping percussion, and emotionally charged lyrics to even think about looking away. The New Jersey native is able to emulate the sound of a full rock band with his percussive fingerstyle approach to the acoustic guitar and an array of effects pedals. Kenny even customized a vintage red suitcase to use as a kick drum which has appeared with him on stage for nearly a decade of live performances. His debut appearances at The Stone Pony in Asbury Park paved the way for Kenny’s developing one-man band show and led him into the national touring circuit and beyond. During his most recent “Big Red Suitcase Tour” Kenny performed in over 50 U.S. cities from coast to coast and was invited to headline a series of benefit concerts in SE Asia. In recent years he has shared the stage with the likes of Keller Williams, Leon Russell, John Hammond Jr., New Riders of the Purple Sage, The Zen Tricksters and John Kadlecik (Further & Dark Star Orchestra). On his latest studio release “And the Light Came Blaring In…” Kenny captures the essence of his live solo show, with all the guitars, vocals, and foot stomping performed simultaneously. While he has used a band for several previous releases, on this record Kenny relies more on his lone power of compositional grit than his usual fret board grandeur. With an influential voice that lies somewhere between Neil Young and Ben Bridwell, Kenny delivers clear and concise visions of dynamic musical deliverance. Combining a deep dive into tone, originality and believability, he ushers the listener into his brand new living room of roots riddled rock and roll. Never going for the standard attack, he flies far from the 12-bar blues, three-chord rock and Americana stereotype to land some place between a rock and a new place. The album illustrates a highly skilled writer who utilizes the same down-home approach in his music as he does with his day-to-day interactions with others. It’s a combination that will continue to see Kenny reach exciting new levels as he helps future fans “see the light” of his musical message.
   
Saturday, May 4     Chris Rattie & The New Rebels      9PM-MID

Rising Americana/Roots Rock artist Chris Rattie and his band, The New Rebels, have announced that their sophomore album ‘Porch’ will be released September 15. Critics have described Chris’ debut record as “...full of idiosyncratic melodies and catchy, unexpected hooks” and have drawn comparisons of his sound with Ryan Adams, Steve Earle, Dire Straits, and White Album era Beatles. His latest album builds on the first album with Chris finding clarity in his themes and assuredness in his musical arrangements. This new collection of songs on 'Porch' illuminates the process of finding one's self, finding one's place, and finding love. ‘Porch,’ recorded in an isolated studio in the hills of Central Pennsylvania, was produced and engineered by Chris with his long time collaborators Forrest Schwartz and Jason “Junior” Tutwiler. ‘Porch’ falls into the Americana/Roots Rock genre with a healthy dose of “Songwriter’s songs” and well as early 70’s rock.

A fusion of New Orleans and Central PA, Mowatt's "bright arrangements keep things sounding fresh" (PA Musician) and "inspire you to expand your mind and think outside the confines of traditional jazz, soul and funk!" (Robert, Positive Music Reviews). "Confident, to-the-point, and elegant" (Rocha, The Flinging Times), Andy and his group entertain and impress crowds with unique originals and modern twists on classic hits, "and yet, through many influences, each tune retains a sound that is distinctly Mowatt's" (O'Brien, Fly Magazine).
