Andy Mowatt's Steely Jam
"Consistently stellar" (Price, PA Musician Mag), "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).
Mike Montrey Band
The sound of MMB (Mike Montrey Band) has a rugged outline -- awareness of life’s tremors pepper the lyrics, sung with a tenor that both trembles and soars, seemingly made for this kind of poetry. Yet it’s the high-spirited melodies and flowing, exploratory warmth of the musicianship that keep this six-piece from settling anywhere near easy classification; “indie acoustic singer-songwriter,” “sultry, jazzy zouk” or “roots” could aptly be applied at any given performance. Relix Magazine has caught on, as has Jambands.com and the prestigious Asbury Music Awards.
With a slew of festival appearances, headlining gigs at noted clubs and national nods for the albums, a northern New Jersey dream has turned into a Northeast sensation.
MMB consists of frontman Mike Montrey on vocals and guitar, Anthony “Duke” Duca on bass and vocals, Rob Smith on drums, Karl Dietel on keyboards and backing vocals, Adam Garnys on horns and Jen Nay Augustine on vocals.
