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
Mike Montrey Band is the sound where Americana, Folk and Rock 'n Roll come together to be sung by a true singer songwriter. MMB released their new album John Street on January 26th 2018. And have been touring behind it at SXSW, Nashville, Denver, and more. The album was produced by Grammy-winner Jim Scott, who has put his tasteful sonic stamp on releases by Wilco, Tom Petty and Tedeschi Trucks Band, to name a few. Aquarian Weekly says, "The choruses click like magic" and NJ Stage calls it "A Masterpiece."
John Street was recorded at the famed PLYRZ studio with legendary keyboard player John Ginty, who is known for his soulful, energetic performances with Dixie Chicks, Citizen Cope, Robert Randolph & The Family Band, and others, as well as pedal steel master, Dave Pearlman, providing a refreshing addition to performances by band members Mike Montrey (guitars/vocals), Anthony Duca (bass), Rob Smith (drums), and Jen Augustine (vocals).
