ACROSS THE DESK By Robin Noll
The last piece of the puzzle and then another issue will be a sleep at the printer for a few short hours than they’ll get it on the press and we’ll start our delivery routine. Sorry about last month’s article but no one really noticed. Whitey had his annual cancer check up. They kept changing it on us so it wound up on a deadline day. We did get good news and he is now cancer free. Thank you Jesus! Cancer , or any sickness is hard on a family to go through. It does test your love and devotion for one another. We made it by the help of God and some amazing friends and family who were there for us. I love my family so much and my church family as well. There are so many events happening throughout the summer it makes it hard to decide which ones to go to. One big event happening in our area is the Summer Music Festival happening July 15th, 16th and 17th at the Millerstown Community Park along the beautiful Juniata River.
A sum of money was left by a generous person for the people of Millersstown to build a Community Park and they have put a lot of thought and care into it. The stage area is fantastic and as you listen to music you can see the river in the background. Jake has been working on this event for over a year. It’s a Festival with all the proceeds going to the local American Red Cross. The event begins on Friday the 15th at noon with Carly Clark opening up the event followed by The Jay Players, Thieves & Lovers, Jesse Baker Band and the last band of the evening will be Fully Loaded. Saturday on the 16th bands begin at 12 noon once again with Dark Matter Trio followed by Redneck Ruckus, The Vintage Band, Friend of Bob and ending the night is The Ryan Alan Band. Ryan is a talented vocalist and entertainer and the boys have written some great originals. Sunday there is a Community Church Service that starts at 10:30 AM with Heaven’s Thunder band starting at noon followed by Entrusted365 and then at 4pm The Colt Wilbur Band will complete the show. There will also be a Silent Auction, Food Court, Kids Zone, Vendors, a Pet Picture contest and so much more. Buy your tickets eartly and save it’s $25 for a 3 day pass

There are shows happening in so many places. We are always asked why don’t you list all the bands, shows, clubs and festivals happening throughout the state. My Christine C. Photographie answer is unfortunately we are funded by out advertisers and I feel I have an obligation to cover those shows that advertise with us. Now, of course, that too would be an Events/Bands impossible feat, to cover every show that advertises in our Familypaper. So we try to do the best we can and if you have Engagement something to write about an event being advertised in our Senior Class pages please do so and submit it and we’ll do our best to SULQWLW,·YHEHHQXSKRXUVDQGP\EUDLQDQGÀQJHUV are having a melt down.

Out & About continued.... straight to Woodshed Guitar Works in Carlisle, where Chris DellaPorta is the owner. I knew I could easily trust his guidance in this big purchase, plus it was nice to support someone who has supported the magazine for years with not only his shop, but with both of his bands, Smokin Gunnz, and Single Barrel. Chris had everything we needed to get Zack started and then some. It was so easy for a Mom that has absolutely no clue. Iâ€™m sure Chris could help anyone if he could help out us clueless people without making us feel like morons! Thanks again Chris for making it so simple and painless. If you need a guitar, amp, or some other gadget for your guitar, check out Woodshed Guitar Works. His real specialty is stringed instrument repair & service, but he also buys, sells, trades, and consigns used musical gear. Itâ€™s a neat little shop, and well worth checking out. For all of the details about where it is and and when itâ€™s open, check out his ad in this issue. Well thatâ€™s all again for this month. I will continue to do my best to get â€œOut and Aboutâ€? to support local music. Itâ€™s not easy, but I do strive to get out there and see as much as possible. Two nights this month where I couldâ€™ve possibly made it out I wound up zonking out on the couch instead. Itâ€™s always so depressing when I wake up and the night is already over!! I guess I must be getting old. If you have any questions or comments, you can e-mail me at RachelRocks@pamusician.net. You can also check out our website at www.pamusician.net.
NATIONALS By Eric Hoffman
Greetings Rockers â€˜Nâ€™ Rollers! Sawyerâ€™s in downtown Harrisburg continued their free Summer Concert Series with appearance from Rusted Root, The Wailers and The Smithereens this past month. Future shows include: Whoâ€™s Bad (Michael Jackson tribute) on July 15. Trapt on July 28. The Struts on Aug 5. Fuel on Sept 30. Sawyerâ€™s are likely to add more National shows this summer. Southern Culture on the Skids returned to the Abbey Bar in Harrisburg recently. The Chapel Hill, NC based band once again brought their awesome live show and their blend of rockabilly country surf rock. SCOTSâ€™s music is very upbeat with outrageous humor and create songs about dancing, sex and fried chicken. Audience members are invited to dance on stage with the band and throw fried chicken into the crowd. Besides all the
The Cure fun, SCOTS are truly three genuinely amazing musicians. Legendary country artist Dolly Parton visited Philadelphiaâ€™s Mann Music Center on June 15. Dolly continues to have an incredible career of singing and writing fantastic songs. During the course of the show, she played 10 instruments: guitar, banjo, SLDQRĂ€GGOHKDUPRQLFDHOHFWULFJXLWDUDXWRKDUSODSVWHHOUHcorder and saxophone. At age, 70, Dolly Parton is in the midst of her largest North American tour in 25 years, titled â€œPure & Simple.â€? On June 19 Hersheypark Stadium was astounded with alternative hip hop group Twenty One Pilots. The musical duo consisting of Tyler Joseph and Josh Dun from Columbus, Ohio sold out the stadium with over 28,000 fans. The Hershey show was TOP largest performance as a headlining artist, the attendance surpassed Beyonceâ€™s recent show on June 12. Formed in 2009, the band has released studio albums and are currently touring for the latest â€œBlurryfaceâ€?. Their current tour â€œEmotional Roadshowâ€? has over 100 dates well into March 2017. Twenty One Pilots return to Allentownâ€™s PPL Center on January 24. Lastly, The Cure sold out Merriweather Post Pavilion in Columbia, MD on June 22. The 80s English alternative band are performing 26 dates in North America with nearly every show a sell out. The show featured â€œ37 years of Cure songs, mixing hits, rarities, favourites, and as yet unreleased tracks in a brand continued on pg. 14...

The 57-year-old singer was found dead April 21 in an elevator at his Minneapolis-area estate.

Decipher Lifeâ€Ś Powerful, Intense, and Ready to ROCK! Article & Photos by Rachel Rocks Are you looking for a new, heavy rock band? One that not only rocks your favorite cover songs, but is also constantly coming up with new original music too? Look no further, Decipher Life is the band for you! Decipher Life has been rockinâ€™ area stages since 2012. They were noticed quickly and became the 717 Music Awards â€œBest New Artistâ€? in 2013. Theyâ€™ve been through a lot of changes in the past 4 years, but one thing for sure is they still know how to rock! The two founding members of the band are also brothers by blood, Michael Brownewell on vocals, and Bryon Jumper on drums. They also have Dill Johnson on bass and vocals, Brett Strawser on guitar and vocals, and their newest member that has been part of Decipher Life since October of 2015, Steve Junkins on guitar. With so many vocalists in the band you hear a lot of amazing melodies and even a few harmonies, VRPH VWUDQJH WKLQJV ZKHQ \RX WKLQN RI KHDY\ URFN EXW GHĂ€nitely something that your ears are sure to appreciate! I had the opportunity to hear and see them play at Tubbyâ€™s. Not only was their stage presence off the hook crazy, but I was shocked at how much their originals sounded like Breaking Benjamin, with also a growling hardness of Five Finger Death Punch. Decipher Life just released a new EP â€œAmerican Numbâ€? on April 30th. One thing about Decipher Life is no two songs are the same. Every song has itâ€™s own rip roaring guitar riffs
On July 14th they are going to be on Episode 9 of Pipeline TV. They already recorded the episode and they canâ€™t wait for it to air. (For more information on Pipeline TV, you can check out their ad in this issue.) All of this success has built them up and on June 20th they took another huge step and signed to Diminished Pitch Entertainment for promotion and management. This will hopefully help them connect with even more radio stations and provide them the opportunity to play even bigger shows and spread out to more venues regionally if not nationally. Theyâ€™ve only just
BRETT STRAWSER begun, letâ€™s see how far they can truly go! Decipher Life has already had the opportunity to open for quite a few National Acts such as: Soil, Saving Abel, Super BOB, Tantric, and now on October 7th they are opening for DOPE! Decipher Life already has tickets for sale for this amazing show. They are only $15!! If you plan on going to this show, please support Decipher Life and contact them for tickets. If you need your Decipher LifeĂ€[EHIRUH2FWREHU\RXFDQ also catch them July 23rd at Fat Daddyâ€™s in York with Spine-
Life, but they are ready to hold on and continue to rock your faces off! They did want to make a quick mention to some of their previous band members that have gotten them this far. One man in particular, Andy Cornman, helped drive their energy over the top. He encouraged everyone, especially Brett, to get out there and have a good time with the crowd. Itâ€™s not unusual to see Brett out running around with his wireless, dancing with the fans, and at times even dancing on tables or bars, or wherever he can climb to! In no particular order they also wanted to thank: Brian Finkenbinder, Dave Sprecher, Matt Dorman, Jason Smith, and Eduardo Rodriguez. Each previous band member has helped them build and become what they are today, and for that they are very thankful! Of course they also want to thank their families and fans for the constant support and following them to all of their shows near and far. The fans are what help you keep that burning passion to keep going and entertaining the masses, they are the ones that help turn up the energy and make it one heck of a show! Last but not least they want to thank all of the venues, radio stations, etc. that have given them the opportunity to get their music out there to the masses! They already have a lot of dates booked throughout the rest of the year, but there are still a few open dates. Decipher Life is willing to play just about anywhere, anytime, as long as they are available: private parties, special events, campgrounds, etcâ€Ś To get Decipher Life booked for your event you can give Steve Junkins a call at 717-884-5381. They plan to keep it rolling and continuing to have fun as long as they possibly can. Check out their ad in this issue for some of their upcoming dates and get out there and support a band that is ready to give you a show you wonâ€™t soon forget!
Dill Johnson and catchy lyrics that keep you entertained and wanting more! Speaking of more, even with the release of their EP just two months ago, they are already playing even newer original music, one of the crowd favorites is â€œCripples the Truthâ€? that you can see and hear for yourself on YouTube. The guys all work together when they are writing new songs. It always amazes them how they can all get on the same page and get a song done so quickly. They recorded their EP at Equinox Studios with Don Belch and Scott Gross. They learned a lot from recording their Ă€UVW(3DQGWKH\FDQÂˇWZDLWWRJHWEDFNLQWKHVWXGLRDQGUHFRUG DJDLQ<RXFDQĂ€QGWKHLU(3HYHU\ZKHUH\RXFDQLPDJLQHRQline: Spotify, iTunes, etcâ€Ś You can also pick up a hard copy at one of their shows.

This was an excellent concert, albeit a little different from what I expected. I arrived expecting to hear mostly Ringoâ€™s solo hits and Beatles staples.

This show was much more than a hit parade, thoughâ€Ś These musicians played each song for keeps, often stretching and escalating them into powerful, enthusiastic jam session

After performing nearly two and a half hours nonstop, Ringo & his All-Starr Band sent the show home with a jubilant rendition of â€œWith a Little Help from My Friends.â€?

Flood City Brass struck up the brass rock party with songs from Ides Of March, Aretha Franklin, Chicago, Wild Cherry, Gary Moore and others. I also got to see Arts Festival performances from Jay Smar, Born and the Beanstalk, Ride The Song, R2B2, Your Dadâ€™s Friends, Frackwater JackDQGÂ˛DVWKHVXQĂ€QDOO\ peeked through the clouds late Sunday afternoon â€“ Pat McGinnis, perhaps being rewarded by the sky since he ran sound and had to protect gear from the elements during the entire weekend! Last monthâ€™s annual Summerâ€™s Best Music Fest in State College expanded into a two-day event and featured several national-caliber spotlight acts; including Sister Sparrow and the Dirty Birds, The Record Company, Amy Helm & the Handsome Strangers and The Commonheart on Friday, and Doyle Bramhall II, Nikki Hill, Eric Lindell, The Stickers, Sierra Hull and Swampcandy on Saturday. I took in part of Saturdayâ€™s free entertainment slate, starting with Pittsburghâ€™s Adorabulls on the Locust Lot stage. This foursome uniquely rocked out using an unconventional array of instruments; Ryan DeNardis played the accordion, John McNulty sang and strummed ukulele, Michael A. Keller kept beats on cajon, and Mike Kuhn played acoustic bass. They made it work, rocking their instruments on energized renditions of Beastie Boys â€œFight for Your Right (to Party),â€? Guns Nâ€™Rosesâ€™ â€œSweet Child Oâ€™Mine,â€? Journeyâ€™s â€œDonâ€™t Stop Believinâ€™â€? and more, mixing in spontaneous touches of musical improvisation and bits of humor along the way. I then caught a few numbers from Big Coronas as they played funk and jazz-driven numbers on the Locust Lane stage. My next destination was the Calder Acoustic stage to see the Jive Bombers in action. Guitarist/singer Jerry Zolten and harmonica master and singer Richard Sleigh were accompanied by John â€œJKâ€? Kennedy on upright bass and Chris Rattie on drums. The Jive Bombers did a selection of roots blues, folk and early rockâ€™nâ€™roll numbers. Their song selection was diverse, including numbers from Little Walter, Carl Perkins, T-Bone Walker, a few Elvis-popularized numbers and more. Richardâ€™s harmonica playing was a frequent highlight, and the group welcomed surprise guest Billy Price (whose band played later that night) to sing lead on a number. (The Billy Price Band performed at the fest later that evening). And I saw a good chunk of Pure Cane Sugarâ€™s performance at the Locust Lot stage. Singer/guitarist Kate Twoey, singer NattyLou Race, guitarist Jason â€œJuniorâ€? Tutwiler, bassist Bob Hart and drummer Daryl Branford showcased a number of new tunes from their forthcoming album, again illustrating bright vocal harmonies and creative song arrangements. And the group totally blew me away with their innovative take on Led Zeppelinâ€™s classic â€œBlack Dogâ€? â€“ a version so different from the original that it WRRNPHPLGZD\LQWRWKHĂ€UVWYHUVHEHIRUH,UHDOL]HGZKDWVRQJ they were doing!

I knew I was in for a good show from Almost Queen ZKHQWZRRIWKHLUĂ€UVWWKUHHVRQJVZHUHGHHSFXWVRII4XHHQÂˇV classic â€˜Sheer Heart Attackâ€™ album, â€œNow Iâ€™m Hereâ€? and â€œFlick of the Wrist!â€? Almost Queen proceeded to deliver the Queen show; mixing up hits, classics and album deep cuts for two sets. Singer Joseph Russo was stunning in the Freddy Mercury role, displaying the voice, mannerisms and even the faux Moroccan accent! Steve Leonard as Brian May, Randy Gregg as John Deacon, and John Cappadona as Roger Taylor all delivered the Queen arrangements, dynamics, guitar tones and more; sounding convincingly like the real thing! Almost Queen did almost all of the essential songs from the Queen catalog: â€œIâ€™m In Love with My Car,â€? â€œYouâ€™re My Best Friend,â€? â€œKeep Yourself Alive,â€? â€œSomebody to Love,â€? â€œFat Bottomed Girlsâ€?

When the Railroaders Museum crowd jubilantly demanded an encore, Almost Queen quickly returned with two remaining biggies from the Queen hit list, â€œBohemian Rhapsodyâ€? (with precise operatic vocals and harmonies) and â€œWe Will Rock You/We Are the Champions,â€? before taking their curtain call in front of the audience with â€œGod Save the Queenâ€? playing through the sound system. Having never seen the real Queen in concert back in their heyday, for me Almost Queen was the next best thing. It was also cool that Almost Queen donates a portion of all proceeds from their merchandise sales to the Mercury Phoenix Trust to assist LQWKHZRUOGZLGHĂ€JKWDJDLQVW$,'6$WWHQGDQFHWKLVQLJKWZDV large, including some folks bringing their children to see their Ă€UVWFRQFHUW7KH$OLYHDW)LYHVHULHVFRQWLQXHVWKLVPRQWKZLWK Pistol Peg & the Beer Kegsâ€™ farewell show on July 1.

those activities, including live music from Coburn Brass and the Bellefonte Community Band, plus solo artists Chris Kent and John â€œJTâ€?

Philadelphia’s Gash brought their wild show to McGarvey’s early last month, headlining a triple-bill. Sets by The Flannels and Xs for Eyes launched the evening, before Gash then introduced their high-octane mixture of punk-driven original rock, spit, vinegar – and S&M. Lead singer/focal point Tibbie X provided the attitude and S&M theatrics, working the crowd and PRVWFRUQHUVRIWKHVWDJHDQGÁRRUZLWKKHUYRODWLOHGHOLYHU\DQG wild antics – backed by the forceful backdrops generated by guitarists Hit Cunningham and A.J.

Following this show, Gash embarked on a west coast tour that wraps up early this month. The Green Eggs reunion tour played to a mass of humanity crowd at Altoona’s Four Dees Lounge early last month. The
night’s selection included tunes from Neon Trees, Smash Mouth, Weezer, Journey, Dropkick Murphys, The Who, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Sublime, Foo Fighters and more.

an encore at show’s end, so Mama Corn responded with their musical tease for June’s “Smoked Country Jam” (review in next month’s issue), and bid the audience adieu with their a cappella spin on the Grateful Dead’s “I Bid You Goodnight.” Offering an acoustic perspective on the 1980s “decade of decadence,” Teazed debuted at D’Ottavio’s Gran Sasso in Hollidaysburg in late May. Bearing a partial uncanny resemblance to hair metal practitioners Hair Force One, the roster of singer Justin Dell, guitarist/singer Jason Berardi and former Half Tempted guitarist Jim Mincin – accompanied this night by Hair Force One tour manager Heywood on backing vocals – mixed acoustic versions of various ‘80s hair band favorites from Def Leppard, Guns N’Roses, Kix, Skid Row, Faster Pussycat, Ozzy Osbourne, Firehouse, Whitesnake, White Lion and more. They also included surprises, such as versions of Saigon Kick’s “Love Is On the Way” and L.A. Guns’ “The Ballad Of Jayne.” Providing Hair Force One rock decadence with a few less decibels, see Teazed as they frequent area acoustic stages in the coming months. Other bands and performers I saw recently included Felix & the Hurricanes as they kicked off Hollidaysburg’s Downtown Live! summer concert series last month, and multiple bands and artists who frequented weekly Open Mic events at D’Ottavio’s Gran Sasso in Hollidaysburg and Joe & Mary’s Tavern in Altoona. Sadly, the area music scene and community were saddened to lose two popular longtime members in recent weeks. Wendel Hullihen, the longtime frontman of the Smoke Run Band, passed away early last month after battling health complications since January. Wendel and Smoke Run ZHUH D À[WXUH RQ DUHD stages for many years, and a number of area musicians logged time as members of Smoke Run during their careers. Wendel had a big voice that handled Smoke Run’s variety of song material, and a big, pleasant personality and presence off the stage.

A VSHFLDOEHQHÀWLQKRQRURIDennie will take place at Delgrosso’s Amusement Park in Tipton on July 31. (See my tribute to Dennie elsewhere in this issue.)

Last month, much of the Central PA community mourned the loss of popular area entertainer and icon Dennie Huber, who passed away on June 12 in a Pittsburgh hospital at age 60. Dennie was many things to many people: Husband, Father, Musician, Singer, Entertainer, Magician, Mentor, to many people throughout central PA. Dennie was known as popular balloon artist “Hubie the Clown,” who appeared at many festivals, carnivals, fairs and public events as he created balloon hats and animals for countless youngsters, and made kids and families smile and laugh with his magic show. ,ÀUVWPHW'HQQLHLQ(DUO\LQP\FDUHHURIUHSRUWLQJRQ the area music scene in PA Musician Magazine, I saw and wrote about Dennie as he sang with his band, Crazy Notions, at Mike’s Brass Rail Lounge in Duncansville. That night became the start of a 25-year-plus friendship.
Dennie was known for being tirelessly charitable. Whether stopping between his paid bookings to blow up balloons and donate his proceeds to charity events, or volunteering his time to children’s organizations such as the Make A Wish Foundation, ARC of Blair County, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Blair County, Relay for Life, Children’s Miracle Network and more, Dennie’s life was about giving to the community, especially its young people. He became an icon of the central PA community. Dennie also had a major and lasting impact on the area music and entertainment scene. As a musician, he entertained audiences as a singer and drummer for such area bands as Fire and Rain and the aforementioned Crazy Notions. But perhaps Dennie’s biggest impact was helping area youth realize their talents and pursue their dreams. Because somebody once gave him a chance to experience the limelight and performance stage early in his career, Dennie paid the favor forward by starting the annual Crazy Fest Amateur Talent Show in 1991. Evolving into a youth talent showcase over 25 years, Crazy Fest encouraged youngsters to step onto the stage and demonstrate their talents before a friendly and supportive audience. Some of those youngsters became yearly contestants at Crazy Fest, and some graduated to careers in the entertainment industry. Crazy Fest alumni are everywhere. Performing the festival and fair circuit plus working in Nashville, young country artist Elaini Arthur graced the Crazy Fest stage numerous times.
