The schedule for the day is as follows:
The Jukehouse Bombers are a five piece band from Indiana, Pennsylvania, specializing in electric blues and soul. The Jukehouse Bombers crew members include Mark Kephart on drums, Troy Laney on Bass, Andy Kirsch and Joe Roach on guitars, and Jimmy Roach on guitar and harmonica. Seasoned performers, the Bombers have extensive recording and touring experience and have supported various national acts.
Dan Bubien & the Delta Struts put a contemporary spin on soulful roots music. Driven by the dynamic guitar playing duo of Shawn Mazzei and Dan Bubien, along with Bubien’s soulful gritty vocals, their signature sound is highlighted by the precision playing and deep toned-full sound of drummer Mark Pollera and glued together by Christian Caputo’s steady, groove oriented bass playing.
The band has coined the phrase “New Vintage Blues” to describe their music — a modern blues sound that looks to the source of early recorded blues, like Robert Johnson, for inspiration. “Black Cat Moan pays homage to the era of blues that birthed its honored child, jazz, and its bastard son, rock and roll,” says one Pennsylvania music critic. Comprised of T.K. Mundok, Zach Bodolosky, and George Byich, the band encompasses the best of several eras through its three members’ talented musicianship and varied backgrounds.
Friends of the Family is a group of Johnstown natives who are wholly immersed in their craft. Fusing elements of acoustic and electric, rock and R&B, hip hop and jazz, there is no jam too deep, no genre bending hill that is too steep for them to climb.
