Elle Gyandoh and The John Doe Band

"Elle has a voice that hovers between the dramatic highs of Mariah Carey and the subtle shadings of Norah Jones.

It's rhythm-and-blues meets pop with a dash of sparkle. And that's what her voice has---Sparkle.", so scribed Frank Quattrone of Montgomery Town and Country Living Magazine.

This songbird wasn't even born when Ella Fitzgerald blessed our ears with her jazz ballads, but when the Ghanaian native heard her smooth vocals as well as those of Aretha, Billie Holiday, and other pioneers alike, she immediately knew she had found the cornerstone of her signature sound.

Like some of her modern day influences, Alicia Keys and Corrine Bailey Rae, Elle creates a blissful marriage of prose and melody that embraces your heart, and feeds your soul.

Thirty Six Thirty with Almshouse

Thirty-Six Thirty

an original alternative rock band, comes to you from Bucks County PA.

Originally formed as a studio project by a husband and wife team the band released its first album "Angry at the World" in 2010.

Although Thirty-Six Thirty's music is clearly influenced by groups like Metric, the Cure, Paramore, Linkin Park, Green Day, and Pink, the band sounds profoundly different.

Falling in the new wave, post modern, and indie bands categories, Thirty-Six Thirty incorporates driving bass lines as a foundation for emotional vocals and layered atmospheric guitar lines held together by solid percussion.

What really separates the band from many other groups is their approach to lyrics which pick up on both, contemporary social themes and personal life experiences, equally.





Almshouse

ALMSHOUSE is an original, female-fronted americana-blues-rock band, founded by guitarist Troy Schoenmeier & bassist Ken Belli, formerly of Bucks County favorites The SOBs.

ALMSHOUSE makes sounds reminiscent of the music made by Sheryl Crow, Joan Osborne w/Trigger Hippy, Cowboy Junkies, and Neil Young.

The Whiskeyhickon Boys

Elements Combine and Music is Made

Jonathan Denny developed his vocal and performance style while traveling across country and playing street music, including an extended stint in New Orleans. Listening to other street musicians, he learned how to create big sound from limited resources.

Noah Hudson's strong rhythms and his calmer physical presence are the perfect anchor to balance Denny's free-spirited approach to music and life.

Michael Young...in addition to playing percussion, brings real-world focus and skills necessary to creative survival: He manages and markets the band.

The music is a mix of bluegrass, rock, funk, jazz, blues, hip hop, other stuff, and a bit more than these elements combined.

These three young men are creating a precious musical and artistic commodity: Their own sound and style.

"Blues Harp Showdown" Steve Guyger & Dennis Gruenling with Doug Deming & The Jewel Tones

Philadelphia is home to one of the finest blues harp players in the world, much to the surprise of people not "inside" the blues scene. Over the past forty-plus years, 2009 Handy Award nominee Steve Guyger has been dishing out some of the finest blues to be heard anywhere. Whether in a duo, trio, or with his band, The Excellos, Steve always rocks the house.

Steve has toured with the late Jimmy Rogers, among others, and has played with many of the great Chicago bluesmen and contemporary players, yet he remains one of the best kept secrets in blues. The late William Clarke called Steve "the best harp player I've ever seen." Mark Hummel called him "a monster player." If you have heard Steve play, you know what they're talking about. If you've never heard him, you're missing a major page in your blues portfolio.





Dennis Gruenling

After receiving his first harmonica as a gift from a family friend, he had heard his first blues record and his life was never the same! Dennis already was a life-long music fan (having grown up on country & western and big band/oldies), and already was acquiring a decent record collection (thanks to his obsession with music & his own radio show in high school!), but the harmonica took him in a whole new direction. Before long, Dennis was tracking down all the harmonica and blues records he could find, and tried to learn as much as he could.

Having been in New Orleans during 1992-3, Dennis came back home to the Garden State of NJ and quickly gained a reputation as a young rising star on the local blues scene working in a couple different local blues bands. In addition to studying the classic harmonica & Chicago Blues records (Little Walter, Big Walter, James Cotton, Muddy Waters, Jimmy Rogers, etc...), Dennis also "cut his teeth" on some classic blues/R&B/swing saxophone records from the likes of Illinois Jacquet, Willis Jackson, Red Prysock, and Gene Ammons. In 1998 he started to form his own local "all-star" band, using members pulled from other regional bands (including the great saxophonist Joel Frahm). Ever since his self-titled debut with that band (Dennis Gruenling & Jump Time!) hit the streets in 1999, Dennis has pulled in countless fans and numerous accolades from critics & musicians around the world for his swinging, highly original harmonica sound and style. Taking equal parts from the harmonica and swing/saxophone traditions and styles, Dennis has pushed the boundaries further for the sound of blues harmonica, while in the meantime pioneering a whole new sound and direction for the harmonica.

Doug Deming

Eastside Detroit native Doug Deming, now hailing from Florida's Gulf Coast, has garnered widespread attention for his deft guitar work and memorable songwriting. With a nod to the likes of T-Bone Walker and Charlie Christian, as well as Luther Tucker and Robert Jr. Lockwood, Doug leaves his own mark whether swingin' on the big jazz box, or playing straight up blues on the solid body Fender guitar. While playing the local Detroit scene in the early 90′s, major players began to take notice, and Doug spent much of the following years backing many of the day's top touring blues artists, including Fabulous Thunderbirds frontman Kim Wilson, legendary Louisiana swamp bluesman Lazy Lester, Gary Primich, Chicago greats Johnny "Yard Dog" Jones, and A.C. Reed, as well as Detroit's own Queen of the Blues, Alberta Adams.

With a decade of touring and recording to his credit, Doug has earned his position alongside today's heavies on the blues scene. Leading his band, The Jewel Tones, Doug continues to bring noteworthy traditional and original roots music to his audiences. Doug's latest recording, What's it Gonna Take, exhibits the outstanding guitar work and remarkable singing and songwriting that have become Doug's calling card.

Dennis Gruenling is without a doubt one of the baddest, swingingest, most innovative harp blowers on the planet. For the past fifteen years, Dennis has played with many top-notch traditional blues acts such as Snooky Pryor, Pinetop Perkins, A.C. Reed, Nappy Brown, and Homesick James, as well as his own original jump blues outfit "Jump Time". For years critics and musicians worldwide have been praising how he blends both the blues harmonica and swing saxophone traditions, as he pioneers a whole new sound and direction for the harp.

Also one of the world's foremost blues harmonica instructors, Dennis is also in demand as a harmonica teacher and lecturer worldwide, in addition to the blues history knowledge he airs on his weekly "Blues & the Beat" radio program (WFDU-FM). Equally adept at performing, composing, arranging, and teaching, what fans remember most is the fun, energy, and emotional intensity of each and every show he is a part of.
