Friday, August 23     Keith Kenny     8-11PM

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.

Friday, August 30     Chris Rattie & The New Rebels     8-11PM

Chris Rattie blends country’s aching ethos with a keen eye for the future. He rises out of the muck and mire to be one of today’s most riveting, astute storytellers. The singer, songwriter and musician wraps his Steve Earle-wrinkled voice around tales of self-realization and wonder on his latest album. Porch (released Sept. 15) is steeped in frothy Americana, burnt around the edges with electric guitar and honest, godforsaken songwriting. “I’ve been out all night long singing these heartbroke songs. Ain’t nobody listening,” he sings on “A Little Shot Glass from Spain.” Later, he pontificates “Country Boy” tropes, fed with a provocative spoken word intro. “Country boy drives a big red truck. Loves rolling coal, it makes him feel real tough. Rebel flag stuck on the back,” he wails over smokey guitar lines and a honky-tonk rumble. Porch is as much a masterful creative accomplishment as it is a raw recollection of his tireless journey to get there, the culmination of years of blood, sweat and tears. A native to central Pennsylvania, he cut his teeth as drummer for Vince Welnick of The Tubes and The Grateful Dead, drummer and prominent songwriter in The Rustlanders (whose second album was helmed by producer Don Was and recorded in L.A.’s East West Studios), and vocals/drums/guitar in rock band Marah. The experiences wrought invaluable wisdom, bestowing upon him the exact skills he needed to write, record and play the album he was always destined to make. Through nine coarsely-delivered, poignant tracks, Rattie defies convention and situates himself as transcendent.

Friday, October 25     Andy Mowatt's Frequency Movement     9PM-MID

Imagine the nostalgic bands of your past making music that is fresh again. Modern songs built from your memories. This is the frequency movement. Musicians capturing the amalgamation of retro sounds in the current hip climate of today’s music; moving yesterday’s sound into “the now." The live show frequently moves from 5 to 10 musicians, each bringing a spin on original songs that seem immediately familiar. The movement hints at your memories yet feels fresh. The musicians are virtuosic and enjoyable to watch interact with each other and the environment.
 
Andy has played guitar, arranged and performed music with “Andy Mowatt’s Steely Jam”, “8-string 4-tet” and Palace Theatre (Manchester, NH), toured with the band "herbie" and the Princess Cruises orchestra, and currently plays in production shows at American Music Theatre (Lancaster, PA). He graduated from Lebanon Valley College with a Bachelors Degree in Music and Recording Technology, as well as concentration studies in jazz, guitar performance, religion and philosophy. Andy Mowatt released an album, "An End To The Means," in 2014, featuring original compositions and new arrangements of modern classics with a revolving cast of stellar musicians.
 
"Consistently stellar" (Jim Price, PA Musician Magazine), "Andy Mowatt's Steely Jam" is a funk-driven powerhouse from Pennsylvania, led by guitarist Andy Mowatt, "an absolute musical genius" (Devoy, Tellus 360) and "jazz-rock flamethrower on guitar" (Campbell, Gigspots). 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).
