UNCLE JAKE

Beginning as campfire jam, this jug-less Jug-Grass adventure quickly blazed an unrivaled path through the local Pennsylvanian bar and festival scene, scooping up and dropping off many a rambler and a gambler, leaving only to shape it’s current, touring, name-droppin’, finger poppin’ line-up of Uncle Jake & the 18 Wheel Gang.

UJ18 is Brady James (guitar/suitcase), Lefty Wilson (three-jo), Stove (claw-jo), Brandon Reber (washboard), Zak (mandolin), and Kyle (upright bass).

The Gang can be seen performing songs that have traditionally been originals, alongside some more tunes that are originally traditionals that can be heard reverberating out of the heart of most town and city folk alike, from any mountain tavern, campfire, or late night stage across this side of the continent

LAUREL AND THE LOVE-IN

Laurel & the Love-In came together piece by piece, soldiering on until they found each other in Nashville in 2015. The common love of early rock and roll are what brought them together, but it’s their wide array of influences that help them to stand out. Their fusion of raw blues, rock and roll guitar solos, and 1960s girl-group inspired harmonies help them create a sound that is entirely their own. The band consists of lead singer and pianist Laurel Sorenson, Krista Hess on guitar, background vocalist Veronica Selby, drummer Michael Rasile, and keyboardist Sarah Bernstein.
