Garnet Rogers with Katherine Rondeau

$20 Cover

An evening with Garnet Rogers.
To listen to samples, visit

Born in Hamilton, Ontario to parents of Nova Scotian descent, Garnet Rogers spent many hours in front of the old floor model radio listening to Grand Ol' Opry broadcasts and harmonizing with his brother, the late folk legend Stan Rogers. Two years later, Garnet was playing the definitive 8-year-old's version of "Desolation Row" on his ukulele. He soon abandoned that instrument to teach himself the flute, violin and guitar.

His music, like the man himself, is literate, passionate, highly sensitive, and deeply purposeful. Cinematic in detail, his songs “give expression to the unspoken vocabulary of the heart” (Kitchener Waterloo Record). An optimist at heart, Garnet sings extraordinary songs about people who are not obvious heroes and of the small victories of the everyday. As memorable as his songs, his over-the-top humour and lightning-quick wit moves his audience from tears to laughter and back again.

-- Opening will be special guest Katherine Rondeau

Danielle Miraglia and Beaucoup Blue

An evening with Danielle Miraglia and Beaucoup Blue.
A special double feature.

Danielle Miraglia comes armed with a strong steady thumb on an old Gibson, an infectious stomp-box rhythm and harmonica. Her tunes range from heart-felt to socially conscious and will move both your heart and hips. Danielle's latest release “Box of Troubles” a bare-bones expression of all these attributes, explores the highs and lows that life has to offer and has already received rave reviews. Alternate Root says “Danielle Miraglia’s guitar work keeps Delta traditions alive. Her steady thumb and playing style trace a direct line to the blues of the field and chicken shacks. Vocally, Danielle’s voice digs in, twisting within the delivery, seeming to break but more likely soaring before the fall. ‘Box of Troubles’ balances good times with the bad, her characters roles’ defined and believable.” To listen to samples, visit

Beaucoup Blue is the Philadelphia based father and son duo, David and Adrian Mowry. From blues to bluegrass, their soulful tradition and contemporary styles mesh into an innovative and authentic sound. They pretty much cover the full range of “Americana” quite uniquely in their song writing and how they choose to represent classic material. During their years together as a duo they have received numerous awards including “Grand Prize Winner of the Billboard Magazine World Song-Writing Contest,” and the “Grand Prize Winner of the Telluride Blues & Brews Acoustic Competition” as well as top 40 on AMA’s Americana, Roots, & Folk radio charts. Touring nationally and internationally as a duo, they perform regionally with some of the areas top musicians. On string bass, jazz and classical stalwart, (Ortlieb’s Jazzhaus, Delaware Symphony), respectively, Bill Zinno. On one of the oldest coolest drum kits you’ll ever see, Jeff Sheard, studio and touring pro from Toronto Canada. Three albums to their credit “Out of the Woodwork” 2003, “Hearts at Home” 2005, and “Free to Fall” 2009. All three albums produced by Grammy nominated Jim Salamone, display two soulful voices and slide guitar virtuosity.

An evening with Chelsea Berry and Me and Molly.
A special double feature.

A favorite among venue owners up and down the East coast, Chelsea’s beautiful voice and commanding stage presence has brought her across the U.S. as regular support for Livingston Taylor as well as headliner of her own shows from California to Washington, Minneapolis, New York, and everywhere in between. Her presence has been described by listeners as “compelling… she draws the entire house into her world like moths to a flame.” Born and raised in Alaska, she now makes her home in Boston. To listen to samples, visit

McGarry and Stevens have been writing songs together for years and playing around the Canada and the U.S. building separate fan bases. It wasn’t until a wellknown producer in Nashville suggested they get together and form a duo that either of them really thought about it. “He told us we have a really unique sound together and a natural chemistry in our writing and performing,” says McGarry. “It just made sense. We had the songs, our voices blended great and we were good friends”. To listen to samples, visit

Ross Bellenoit, Dylan Jane, and John Mallinen

An evening with Ross Bellenoit, Dylan Jane, and John Mallinen.
A special triple feature.

After moving here in 2003 to acquire a degree in Jazz Guitar at University of the Arts (where he know teaches as part-time faculty), Bellenoit became an extremely active guitarist-for-hire, willing to play with anyone at a moment's notice. He has shared stages with many local acts including Cowmuddy, Chris Kasper, Hezekiah Jones, Denison Witmer, George Stanford, Gillian Grassie, John Mallinen, and countless others. He spent 5 years touring nationally with retro honky-tonk band The Sweetback Sisters, opened for Bob Dylan and Elvis Costello on tour with Amos Lee, and continues to trek across Europe with Philly ex-pat Joseph Parsons. Bellenoit's own music is a unique blend of songwriting, equal parts Richard Thompson and Elvis Costello, with the tragically lyrical poetics of Joe Henry and Leonard Cohen. When performing with a full band, you can expect big soundscapes with frenetic guitar work. When performing solo (or duo with the enchanting Sonja Sofya), you can expect heartbreaking songs sung with passion and the most humorous traces of hope. To listen to samples, visit

A natural-born storyteller, it was at a young age that she started writing short melodies on a children's keyboard to express her experiences. This began a relationship with music that she has never shaken. She grew up listening to Cat Stevens and Carole King among many others in her parents' collection, artists whose influence would later surface in her own style. By integrating Alternative, Indie, and Americana tastes from her own generation, she began to develop an Alt-Folk sound all her own. Fused with a fascination of all things literary, she describes her music the same way we hear it: “lyrically centered.” Born and raised in South Florida and relocating to North East Pennsylvania and then her current home in Philadelphia, Dylan likes to stay in motion. She has travelled to play in cafes, venues, and listening rooms up and down the East Coast and spends much of her time on the road. To listen to samples, visit

Nearly 10 years ago, after releasing the critically-acclaimed EP 25:47, John Mallinen was unwittingly catapulted onto the national music scene. The project, as brief as the duration of time for which it is named, gave way, in contrast, to a long period of new musical inquiry. Mallinen toured extensively behind the EP, at venues across the country—Portland’s White Eagle Saloon, Seattle’s Tractor Tavern, NYC’s Mercury Lounge and Philadelphia’s Johnny Brenda’s, to name a few— and cut his teeth with notable, national artists. In addition to ushering in a new life for Mallinen as a touring performer, 24:57 introduced audiences to his particular artistic voice, conjuring nostalgia, romance and exploration into the mysteries of human experience. Mallinen has recently released his first full-length record with producer Ross Bellenoit and many notable philadelphia musicians, titled 44:40. To listen to samples, visit

Matt Duke with Haley Slagle

An evening with Matt Duke.
To listen to samples, visit

Having taken time to refocus after the 2014 release of singer/ songwriter, Matt Duke returns with the release of The Phoenix, a conceptual album about clinical depression, the desire to come out from under, and the ebb and flow of one's emotional state of being.

Realized through the help of producer and engineer Andrew Lipke (Hezekiah Jones, Chris Kasper), Duke returned to the studio with longtime friends and fellow musicians Dane Kline, Nathan Barnett, Andrea Weber, and others, to create an album that is both insightful thematically, while also eclectic in its artistry.

Presently a student at Aria's Health School of Nursing, Duke spends much of his time wondering where he left his keys.

An evening with The Chris Paterno Band.
To listen to samples, visit

The Philadelphia-based seven-piece was formed in 2015 by Chris Paterno (lead vocals, acoustic guitar). Once a solo project, the band formed after Paterno was personally asked by the Philadelphia Freedoms to play the pre-match bloc party at the Villanova Pavilion in front of 2000 people. For the show, Paterno brought on his friend Connor McElwee (electric guitar, vocals) and their old high school English professor, Doug Parsons (percussion). To round out the eclectic group, Mike Clark (trumpet), Adam Monaco (mandolin), Nate Sims (bass) and Frank Rein (trombone) came on board.

Later that year, Grammy-winning producer Joe Nicolo saw them play at Chaplin’s (Spring City, Pa). He quickly signed them to his label, BlacBird Productions, where they began recording their debut EP. The Chris Paterno Band recently released their debut singles “Unfaithful,” and "Morning Light" which were featured on blogs Elmore Magazine, Vents Magazine, Filthy Tracks, Leading Us Absurd, Throwback Thursday Philly and more.

The self-titled EP is slated for release in August 2016.
