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 (served from 9AM-2PM), reservations are strongly encouraged.

Friday, August 17     Nate Myers & The Aces     9PM-MID


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.

Monday, August 20     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.

Every Wednesday evening we offer up free, live jazz while you dine and drink with us here at the Bullfrog.

Friday, August 24     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.

Monday, August 27     Vinegar Creek Constituency     8-11PM


American songs are full of deranged old ghosts howling at the moon. Vinegar Creek Constituency, an eclectic, incendiary string band out of the Pennsylvania Dutch Country, channels these venerable old ghosts of the American folk tradition through imaginative, emotive original songs delivered with rock n roll intensity. Full of shouting, floorboard-stomping soul, their live performances are uplifting, high-energy events with fans dancing in the aisles and clapping, stomping, and singing along. Like their folksong forerunners that took root around campfires and on back porches across America, the songs call out from the crossroads of light and darkness. They are dreams of Heaven alongside visions of Hell; songs in praise of love alongside tales of murder and the madness of lovers betrayed; songs that ride the rails, wander the countryside, rise from the grave, and cackle in the face of impending doom. The musicians of Vinegar Creek Constituency come from diverse musical backgrounds that range from formal Classical performance to experimental garage Rock to traditional Old Time Appalachian string band music to Gypsy Jazz. Consequently, the band’s sound encompasses elements of many styles, including super-charged bluegrass, early Sun Records-era rock'n'roll, swing, vaudeville, outlaw country, and ragtime.
