Our Sunday Jazz Brunch Workshop is a magical, musical phenomenon that everyone should experience.

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.

All the mysterious, enchanting back roads that all us romantics sit around daydreaming about come alive on American Hotel. Listening to the album, you can tell Mike’s logged lots of windshield time, that he’s stopped in plenty of small town cafes to break bread with the type of familiar all-American characters we road warriors know so well. They’re what have given Mike’s project legs and taught it to run like no other.

Thursday, May 3     Keith Kenny     9PM-MID


Fresh off a recent tour with The Dean Ween Group!!
 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. Kenny's fans, however, are too busy dancing to the one-man act's layered guitar riffs, foot stomping percussion, blues harp and emotionally charged vocals to even think about looking away. His new LIVE album captures the true essence of his “one man band” performances spanning genres from gritty rock and roll to electrified folk and blues. 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).

Friday, May 11     Lumpy Gravy     9PM-MID


Like thunder dancing on legs of lightning. Williamsport's very own original jam band, Lumpy Gravy, was formed when Owen MacDonald and Brett Kahn (former members of Kind-a-Mind) began jamming with Mike & John Snyder. Doug McMinn, who played with MacDonald in the well-known George Wesley Band, signed on in the spring of 1998 (along with percussionist Ken Damilio). Now, three drummers and three bass players later, Gravy has a new lease on life. MacDonald (guitar, vocals) and McMinn (sax, guitar, vocals) are joined by Joel B Vincent (Blind Chitlin Kahunas) on drums and Jimmy Lovcik (Strawberry Jam, Jack's Farm) on bass in the refurbished and riveting lineup. Vincent's fluid, tasteful style and Lovcik's rock-solid, imaginative bass work keep the famous Gravy groove percolating at peak efficiency. "Mango", the band's 2002 release, was extremely well-received, and their follow-up album "GRASShopper" truly showcased the band's creative style. Lumpy Gravy is ready to head back into the studio again soon to begin work on a highly anticipated third album ... although lately the band has toyed with the idea of recording a live album. Time will tell!

Saturday, May 12    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.

Monday, May 14     Mystery Trayne     8-11PM


Acoustic trio Mystery Trayne is a harmonious gumbo of Delta blues, twang, and swing. Two of the members, Jay "Bone" Short and Cheryl "Miz Ida" Miller have been fixtures in the area blues seen for decades. They have lived it and played it and share a rich history of making music together since the early days of the the burgeoning Billtown blues scene. They are joined by Jack "J.C." Reed, a Liberty-based multi-instrumentalist, songwriter, and recording engineer. With a lot of road miles under his belt by traveling with various show bands, you will find Jack perched behind his upright bass or guitar adding just the right amount of harmony to Cheryl's smooth-as-butter voice and Jay's soulful vocals and blues-driven guitar style.

Wednesday, May 16     JetSet     7-10PM


Jetset is a mostly-acoustic jazz ensemble inspired by (but not limited to) the French Acoustic Jazz style started by Django Reinhardt. Typically known as "Gypsy Jazz", the music is light, bouncy, and perfect for weddings, bar mitzvahs, dinners, brunches, office and garden parties, or just drinks around a campfire with friends. Jetset won't transform your next event into a Spring night in Paris, but they'll get it a little closer. Every Wednesday evening we offer up free, live jazz while you dine and drink with us here at the Bullfrog. From solo pianists to unique duos & trios to hot quartets, we've always got something on Wednesday nights to tickle your musical tastebuds while you relax with friends, grab a bite, or enjoy a beer or three.

Thursday, May 17   Alex Kates & Danny Shanahan   9PM-MID  DUO SHOW!


Alex Kates, a native of Jamestown, NY, has traveled the country from coast to coast with his music for over two decades. Having mainly played solo as a singer-songwriter, Alex developed "The Alex Kates Band" and the cover-oriented "Kates Brothers Band" (both with his brother Billy Kates on drums), sharing the stage with Rusted Root, The Royal Southern Brotherhood, and The Spin Doctors, to name a few. In his new project, Alex has joined forces in a rootsy & blues-laden band called "The Kates Brothers Band." Billy Kates joins Alex on drums as a powerful driving force that infuses dance into rock. Dan "The Man" Shanahan brings decades of experienced harmonica playing that leaves the listener smiling. To round off and complete the sound, Brett Maybee brings his jam-rock bass playing to the table. Put all these guys together and you have "The Kates Brothers Band" from Jamestown, NY. If you like the blues, roots, and rock ... and like to dance ... then this just what the doctor ordered.

Friday, May 18     Balkun Brothers     9PM-MID


Brewed in a caldron of face-melting guitar riffs that are met with a wall of earth quaking bass drum hits, their ferocious flaming meteor of a duo, breeds a ruthless rebellion of what it is to be a rock n’ roll band in 2018. Known for their explosive live shows that go from 0 to 100 in the blink of an eye, the brothers from Hartford grew up studying the likes of Son House, Johnny Winter, Howlin’ Wolf and Muddy Waters, then smashing those together with the likes of Motorhead, Primus, Rage Against the Machine, The Doors, Motley Crue and the Red Hot Chili Peppers. In a day and age where the world is in dire need of true rock n’ roll, the Balkun Brothers are bringing the people what they want: hard-nosed, dirty, mammoth sounds that have been invading the ear-holes of fans from coast to coast across the globe and changing lives one head bang at a time. Balkun Brothers takes the White Stripes and the Black Keys and flips them upside down with a musical range that spans into hip hop and funk fusion without missing a beat. Audiences are left speechless at live shows that serve up smashed guitars, dinosaur-like power and lyrical content that is more relevant in today’s society than ever before. The duo plans to tour relentlessly until they die and will continue to create organic, honest music while the planet still exists in our reality as we see it now. Although, there is no telling what the future holds, one thing is for certain … rock n’ roll lives on.
