Still Hand String Band

4 Pc. Spazzgrass machine hailing from northeastern pennsyltucky

Still Hand String Band is a four-piece progressive jamgrass machine, instilling their hand into the future of bluegrass music. Hailing from the coal region of north eastern Pennsylvania, SHSB plays a wide variety of original and cover material leaving no genre of music untouched. Their heap of originals, although bluegrass at heart, are influenced by rock, jazz, country, psychedelia, reggae, classical compositions, and other traditional and untraditional styles. Lyrical content ranges from songs about the open road, riding the American railroad drunk in a boxcar, strong whiskey, fast women, and an angry dinosaur named Harold. With all four members coming from very different musical backgrounds, none of which being bluegrass, Still Hand has found a sound that you cant quite put a name on, other than spazzmatic, schizophrenic bluegrass. SHSB has a knack for taking the songs of yesteryear and revitalizing them with a modern twist and a youthful vigor. For the past two years they have taken the northeast festival and club scene by storm, sharing the bill with a with a whole slew of nationally recognized acts such as, Mickey Hart Band, 7 Walkers, New Riders of the Purple Sage, Melvin Seals & JGB, The Wailers, Dark Star Orchestra, Keller Williams, Terrapin Flyer, Larry Keel and the Natural Bridge, ALO, Antibalas, and Floodwood to name a few. Wherever they play these guys get the crowd astompin’.

Mysterytrain

Mysterytrain is a five-piece psychedelic jam band originally from the Central Pennsylvania region. The band believes that music is best served and enjoyed in a live setting with kind people having a great time. The band and crew are committed to creating an evening of song that is special and unforgettable.

A typical Mysterytrain performance includes two sets. The first set establishes the tempo for the evening and allows the band and the fans to get settled into a musical groove. The second set is when the magic can happen. Long improvisational jams and interconnecting songs allow the music to breathe and come to life.

Influences ranging in Rock n’ Roll, Country, Bluegrass, Soul, Jazz, Funk, Latin Percussion, and Blues have created an endless array of musical styles from which to draw. With plenty of original material, no two shows or set lists are ever the same.

Pan is a four-piece, original rock 'n' roll band from Northeastern Pennsylvania formed in August of 2011. Members of Pan have played together, shared bills and stages with each other while in other bands and most importantly have remained friends for over ten years.

Influenced by countless classic rock, blues, folk and psychedelic artists, Pan's music is unique while feeling familiar with a focus on honest, insightful lyrics and a fascination with improvisational music.

The Backwoods Experiment

Straight from the heart of the backwoods comes a heavy hitting blend of acoustic power and psycho-billy drive. Combining the passion of four good friends with a love of all things natural, this musical conglomeration pays homage to the musical greats while changing the way people view acoustic music.

Brother Owen Macdonald provides his original rock-n-roll style on the
mandolin along with sharp vocal variety. Brother Tim Mayo breaks through banjo boundaries to bring the instrument to a new audience and his creativity and drive assures an experience unique to each show. Brother Matt Amato fuels the machine with his rhythmic bass tones and solid count. Finally, Brother Chris Musto picks guitar and tells tales of the backwoods along their path of musical experimentation.

The Backwoods Experiment has spread to all types of music festivals,
sprouting in the most unusual places and thriving on the essence of each show. They have provided shade and shelter, filling that basic human need for something real. Music, like life, is an experiment, step into the backwoods.

Hitchin' Cricket

Hitchin' Cricket is an American rock band based in the rural hills of Northeastern Pennsylvania. Their live performances generate the kind of buzz and hoopla that only can surround the kind of talent that is on the verge of national success.

Emerging onto the national music scene from their home base in Pleasant Mount, Hitchin’ Cricket has been described as The Marshall Tucker Band by way of Bob Dylan, The Temptations, Hank Williams, Ween and Wilco. Hitchin’ Cricket’s music is not hard to describe. It is pure original yet familiar, fresh rock ‘n’ roll rolled up tightly for all to dance and sing to. Their melodies light up the skies firmly rooted with ingredients which include Americana, 70’s R&B, folk, outlaw country and a touch of soul.

Having begun their career in an old apartment above their landlord’s barbershop, the unscrupulous Hitchin’ Cricket evolved into a clan of cronies forever trying to crack the thick skin of the dirty business of music. They encourage “socials” between all of their songs, keep people humming their sounds for days on end and write music for the common man. With ten years of making music, touring and engulfed working on their 4th studio album, Hitchin’ Cricket is the train engine band we all need in our lives.

Sustaining Hitchin’ Cricket throughout the years, writing and touring incessantly, they have already established a large and passionate following throughout the music and club scene.
