HogMaw
HogMaw
What started as an accidental meeting of musicians around a campfire has become a progressive bluegrass bomb that has exploded on the festival scene in the North East! By playing original music in an innovative style that is both experimental and familiar, HogMaw has quickly gained a reputation as something that you have to see first hand.

In only 4 years together HogMaw's resume includes over 60 festival appearances and nearly 200 total performances. These include major musical events such as the 50th Philadelphia Folk Festival, 2 appearances at DelFest in Cumberland MD, Camp Jam in the Pines in Monroeville NJ, Allentown, PA's Musikfest. They have opened for National acts such as GRAMMY award winners The Carolina Chocolate Drops, Bluegrass legends like Peter Rowan, The Seldom Scene, and Tony Trischka. HogMaw also appears on the band scene and has the honor of opening for jamgrass powerhouses Cornmeal, Hackensaw Boys, and Cabinet. They have also had many headlining performances of their own at major hot spots for original music such as The Trocedero, World Cafe Live, Tin Angel, and North Star Bar in their homebase of Philadelphia. The Blairstown Theater, The Strand Capitol Theater in York PA, The Sellersville Theater, The Historic Strand Theater in Lakewood, NJ and various clubs all over the northeast. The band headlined the 2010, 2011, and 2012 Bucks Co. Bluegrass Festival at Snipe's Farm in Morrisville, Pa and also won the 2009 York Revolution Battle of the Bands where they played for a full stadium of 7000+ people.

Through a fan based fundraising project HogMaw was able to release their full length debut effot "Wake" in July of 2012. Produced by Ernie Tokay and mixed/mastered by Grammy winner Phil Nicolo, "Wake" is a daring romp featuring their own brand of THUNDERGRASS songs, transcending instrumentals, and a whole lot of wood chopping! "Wake" truly is an acoustical accomplishment that came out to much critical and local acclaim. The band hopes to tour and make a national splash through 2013 with the new release. "Wake" is available on iTunes, Amazon.com, and cdbaby.com, you can also give it a listen for free on the music service Spotify as well.

HogMaw is Matt Baldwin on guitar and vocals, multi-instrumentalist Colin Reeves on mandolin, banjo, dobro, manjo (combination banjo mandolin), and occasional guitar, and Ryann Lynch on fiddle and foot percussion. Joining the band in 2012 is Johnny Calamari on upright bass and harmony vocals.
Boris Garcia
Boris Garcia
For the past nine years, Boris Garcia has set about trouncing genre "lines in the sand" and fused pop, bluegrass and jam into their own undeniable sound. Boris Garcia was born when friends recorded for fun, only to find an audience beyond their wildest dreams and it quickly evolved into one of the most unique Americana / Jam bands in the land. They masterfully blend acoustic and electric instrumentation with American roots sensibility and melody that envelopes like a warm robe. Their brand new CD "Today We Sail" was produced by Railroad Earth fiddler Tom Carbone and is their fourth national release. Eleven new tunes showcase Boris Garcia's ability to tell a story and forge a lasting melody. Specializing in love and compassion, tales of a higher order and sometimes personal disorder, these are songs that speak to the human condition.
Psych-A-Billy
Psych-A-Billy
Miracle Records recording artists Psych-A-Billy continue to dumbfound the folk music world with their relentless and uncompromising silliness. The journey from brash, young upstarts to revered fathers of The Punkgrass Movement has left Psych-A-Billy crazier than jerky, and tougher than bat guano. The music remains a frenzied blur of sounds and styles, rocketing from bluegrass to punk rock and ricocheting around the most unexpected corners in roots music, just because the boys in the band think it's fun to play it that way.

From campfires to concert halls, Psych-A-Billy remains a whiskey-drenched beacon of heresy, hilarity, and halitosis.
