"Hailing from upstate New York, Rocky Burning is alive with ambition. This is a point made readily apparent every time he takes the stage. Rocky has come to his current state of being by traversing a gamut of rock and roll pitfalls and coming out the other side unscathed. He cut his teeth fronting the psychedelic hard rock band "amongst the monks" for several years as they churned out their freshman and sophomore records. They recorded in New York City and toured around eastern U.S. Now Rocky has moved upward and onward recording his 5 song EP "drinking champagne in public" which he has released under his own name. This work is definitively anthemic blues rock taken to the nth degree. It's a classic revival blended with some mod tones and lyrics. The endless hooks attack like ebola and are nearly as difficult to get away from. Listen to the record, watch Rocky perform and your inner rock 'n' roll addict will thank you!"

Since 2001, Andru Bemis has wandered the ends, edges and in-betweens of North America like a musical Johnny Appleseed, tuning neglected pianos and bringing joy to audiences wherever he goes. Traveling almost exclusively by foot, thumb, and public transportation, Bemis carries the tools of his trade in his pack: a piano tuning kit and an assortment of battered musical instruments—banjo, fiddle, guitar, and occasional banjolele. His unmistakeable voice, exquisitely crafted songs of travel, love and longing, uncommon skill on multiple instruments, quirky humor, and engaging stage presence have endeared him to countless audiences and fellow performers in venues of every size and description.
Andru Bemis has twice toured as the opening act and fiddler/banjoist for John Reilly & Friends, featuring actor/comedian/singer John C. Reilly, Becky Stark, and Tom Brosseau. Highlights of these tours include sold-out shows at Lincoln Center, Chicago’s Old Town School of Folk Music, the first ever public performances in Milwaukee’s historic Miller Caves, beneath the Miller Brewery, and an NPR Tiny Desk Concert. Bemis has also performed or toured with Dan Bern, Joshua Davis, Tony Furtado, Sarah Lee Guthrie, Charlie Louvin, Over the Rhine, Amanda Palmer, Noam Pikelny, Rachel Ries, Sam Shepard, the Steel Wheels, Sebastian Steinberg, Two Man Gentlemen Band, Willie Watson, Jason Webley, Woody Pines, and many others.
Songs from Bemis’ self-produced albums are played on radio stations throughout the country, and have been featured in a number of independent films.

Grapefruit Cannonball is a three-piece alternative rock band from a small town in northern Pennsylvania. Like big fish in a little pond, these upstarts have been winning fans wherever they play.
The three founding members are Jorden Isbell (drums, guitar, vocals), Josh Morgan (guitar, vocals, keyboard/piano), and Danny Wilhelm (bass). Josh and Danny had been playing music together for a couple of years. They met Jorden in junior high school and became friends through their passion for music. After jamming on multiple occasions as a hobby, they decided they wanted to take it further and officially form a band. They found success in a junior high talent show and a band competition. They played a few shows and fairs as a result. Realizing they had something special, they started writing music together.
In 2015, they decided to expand their sound to a four-piece, adding former drummer, Jarod Boardman. After winning another band competition, they decided to take their show in the road and expand their fan base. Since that time, they have played many shows from upstate New York to southern Pennsylvania, including two sets at the world-famous Musikfest in Bethlehem, PA. Boardman departed the band shortly after.
2017 was a milestone year for the band. After playing their original songs for fans since their humble beginnings, it was time for the world to hear them. During the summer, they teamed with award-winning producer Andrew Chervak to record their first single, Bang Bang Bang, which was released in digital format in September of 2017. A month and a half later, they released their debut album, Idol, which was self-recorded and self-produced throughout the summer of 2017 in a small, remote cottage.
Idol consists of their own version of Bang Bang Bang, along with ten other songs. From heartfelt songs like Distant Love and The Weight to rockers like Toxic Girl and The Girl from Outer Space, each song takes a peek into the hearts and souls of the band members and shows a maturity well beyond their years. One listen is not enough.
Grapefruit Cannonball continues to write music and play shows. Be sure to follow them on their various social media accounts on Facebook, Instagram, SnapChat, SoundCloud, and ReverbNation.

-Benjamin Borko : lyrics, vocals, rhythm/lead guitar, (and namesake of this eclectic group) is backed by the precision percussion of Joseph Soprano, sublime rhythms of bass guitar player Jacob Brennan.
danger is our middle name
Well here's the short version....Tijuana Danger Danger Dogs began in 2011 as a collaboration between Michael Toyryla and Jesse Wheeler, in what was to be an outlet for the pop and electronic ideas they couldn't use in their other projects. The two met in 1999 and their chemistry was evident immediately. They formed several hard rock bands together and earned their stripes gigging regularly and releasing multiple independent recordings.
In 2010, a tragic accident nearly killed Michael, leaving him paralyzed and his musical ambitions an afterthought. Defying the odds, Michael's recovery progressed, and he and Jesse began working together again: Tijuana Danger Dogs was born as a studio project. The band released several singles and an EP from 2012-2014. In late 2014, Mike and Jesse decided to expand the horizons of the TDD project and create a live act which would feature original songs as well as fresh takes on covers. The current lineup rounded out in 2017 with Caleb Wheeler on drums and Keagan Toyryla on bass/vocals. Caleb and Keagan just happen to be Mike and Jesse's sons - yes, this is a true ROCK N ROLL FAMILY. Check out the Tour page for details on where you can catch them next.
Their debut self-released album Born On Sunday, is a collection of 10 “WOW! I felt like you were talking directly to me” conversion stories. This album is filled with, “lovely little nudges and perfect timings.” To sum up their music, is it best described as AHA moments of inspiration in the genre of Christian rock.
In a sea of Christian rockers Mike & Jo stand out not only with their sub-genre twist of guitar driven rock and ensemble influences, but also their well-known standing at the crossroads lyrics. Their primary means of gaining new fans and marketing is by performing for churches and performing Arts Centers. In 2018 they plan to continue their path as recording artists and live performers, as well as help other artists achieve success in prayerful song.

The Gerry Jarcia String Band
The Gerry Jarcia String Band is a new group of seasoned musicians based out of Johnson City, NY who are
quickly expanding their fanbase with the mission of sharing hard-driving rhythms and catchy Old-Time tunes to
the ‘next town over’. Revivalists with Rock N Roll hearts, they play old music that still resonates today and their
audiences can’t help to dance, hoot, and holler well after each show ends. And, if you’re picturing a Grateful
Dead tribute band, think again. They play a range of covers and original music inspired by the music that
encompassed Jerry Garcia’s roots. Their rip-snortin’ old time dance music has packed shows over capacity,
and most important: they’re all about having FUN.
If you want to picture their live shows, picture this: a boot stompin’ dance party, where the crowd and band alike
are kicking up the dust, making the party beg for more excitement. The Gerry Jarcia String Band is currently
bringing this familiar scene to a multitude of venues in Central New York, and are expanding their radius to do
weekend tours on the road this Summer. Wherever they go, their fans will follow, traveling out to share in
another vivacious encounter.
The GJSB was born out of a Traditional Old-Time Music jam that Brian Vollmer organized, of which members
Paul Koanui, James Pieszala, and Drew Gildea became regulars of, each month at a local bar. Their late night
choices of songs leaned towards inspirations of the former banjo player and folk-singer Jerry Garcia and his
acoustic related projects before and outside of the Grateful Dead. Brian offered these select musicians from the
jam an opportunity for a short notice spot at a local festival and an after party, and they were able to organize
an entire setlist in a day. The way the audience reacted to their traditional instruments and rock and roll vibe,
solidified the project.
The response from press was immediate as well, with places like FLX Live saying they “[emphasize] the joy of
bluegrass and [filter] it through traditionals and beyond, into arguably the greatest song book in America” and
Brad from the crew of Originals saying they “[know] how to deliver a night of entertainment sure to keep your
customers wanting more. The band will be back and so will their new fans.” Additionally, Mike Liberty from
Ransom Steele says they are “one of [their] favorite new acts” because they “pack the house and bring their
own brand of old time and roots dance music.”
The Gerry Jarcia String Band is an acoustic melange like none-other. All shows they’ve headlined thus far have
been flooded with excitement. The music is timeless and the players are talented. Whether it means throwing
in a tribute song, laughing about the state of the world, or even bringing in a caller for an impromptu mid-show
square dance, they are above all else dedicated to keep their crowds smiling, legs shaking, and them toes
The Gerry Jarcia String Band is available for booking. For more information, contact
