Our 2020 Performers:
June 9: Gary Stewart
Gary Stewart has a Jazz Degree from Berklee College of Music. In addition he studied with Jazz recording artists Peter Spraque and with adjunct professor Kenneth Karsh from Duquesne University. For most of his adult life Gary has been playing guitar with various bands and ensembles. He has experience in all styles ranging from jazz, rock, classical, blues, and country. He has been teaching for 25 years to students from 5 to 65 years of age. His enthusiasm for music is reflected in the way he teaches and inspires his students.
June 23: Acoustical Bruce
Bruce played the Pittsburgh area in the 70s with legendary bands Lothlorien & Star Shower. He moved to SoCal to help form Suzy Cheese & The Philadelphia Cream and A Separate Reality with fellow Westmoreland Co Musicians. Back in PA, he now performs as an acoustic guitarist and vocalist playing Classic Acoustic Music: Cat Stevens, Dan Fogelberg, Eagles, Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, John Prine and more. Bruce was fortunate enough to represent our area in Nashville as a Pittsburgh Regional Finalist for the Nashville Star TV Show and performed in the 2017 Rock The Palace event at The Palace Theater in Greensburg PA. He also features original songs from local artists.
July 7: Jane West
Jane West summons Americana voices like Linda Ronstadt and Gillian Welch with the contemporary sounds of Emmylou Harris and Rachel Price in a relaxed, engaged atmosphere. Singing all over the Greater Pittsburgh Area since she was six years old, Jane has been fortunate enough to perform a variety of genres including: rock, jazz, blues, folk, classical, opera, funk, choral, bluegrass, electronica, Celtic, musical theatre, and even barbershop. Her passion for music has followed her throughout her musical studies (nationally and internationally) since she was 9 years old, learning several instruments along the way of her vocal journey.
July 21: The Adorabulls
The four members of Pittsburgh’s The Adorabulls are music nerds that happen to be good at pumping up crowds and playing high energy ’80s party music on weird instruments! They often do 3 and 4-part harmony vocals and swap lead vocal duties. The goal is always to put on an upbeat, humorous, and engaging show. John McNulty (ukulele) has been playing in various bands for over 20 years, playing drums, guitar, and most recently ukulele. In 2013, John was given a ukulele for Christmas, which ultimately resulted in formation of The Adorabulls, after several friends were convinced that a weird-instrument party band might be fun.
