The Johnstown Flood Museum and Heritage Discovery Center/Johnstown Children’s Museum are adopting winter opening hours beginning the week of Jan. 3. We will be open Monday, Thursday, Friday, and Saturday from 10 am-5 pm, and Sun. noon-5 pm (closed Tuesday and Wednesday). Because Cambria County is currently experiencing high community spread of COVID-19, we are now requiring staff and visitors to wear masks (face shields alone are not adequate). Please visit the children’s museum COVID protocols page for more information specific to that museum. We appreciate your understanding and cooperation. Welcome!

The Marauders and Derek Woods Band added to music fest lineup

The Marauders and Derek Woods Band added to music fest lineup

The AmeriServ Flood City Music Festival (Aug. 3-4) lineup is now complete with the addition of The Marauders (pictured) and the Derek Woods Band.

The Marauders: Bursting onto the scene in the early 2000s, The Marauders (pictured) made a name for themselves playing show after show of punk-tinged, sweat-drenched rockabilly, and were even tapped to open a tour for the Brian Setzer Orchestra. After four albums and countless shows, the band hung it up around 2009 — but are now back in the original lineup plus one. It’s a reunion, but not a reunion project — they’re writing, recording, and sounding better than ever.

Derek Woods Band:  “Big Jam” is how Morning Glass Entertainment describes the genre of Derek Woods Band. “Big” comes from the 5-piece lineup that makes up DWB, including 8 different rotating instruments and the lead vocals of Derek Woods. We’ve presented them a few times over the years, and are glad to welcome them back to open our mainstage on Sat., Aug. 4!
