More about the bands:

Tony Janflone Jr. knew what he wanted to do with his life from age 13 -- be a guitarist. He had been playing since the age of 9 and having been influenced from his earliest days by his father, also a guitarist. He’s one of Pittsburgh’s most sought-after performers and session musicians, and plays virtually every night in venues across western Pennsylvania. Tony’s performing credits include opening for or performing with B.B.King, The Fabulous Thunderbirds, Joe Bonamassa, Dionne Warwick, Natalie Cole, Steely Dan, Jeff Beck, Carlos Santana,Ted Nugent, Jimmy Thackery, and Peabo Bryson.

Jukehouse Bombers – Based in Indiana, Pa., the four-piece Jukehouse Bombers specialize in barrelhouse blues, soul, and classic rock. As Jim Price put it, "The Jukehouse Bombers’ dazzling instrumental chops, hearty vocals, and rowdy presentation dash the misconception that blues is depressing music."

Ben Dumm featuring Southside Jerry – Like most performers, Ben Dumm began playing with garage bands in high school and is well-known locally for his bands The Marauders and Ben Dumm & the Deviants. Throughout the years he has shared the stage with a variety of musicians, from legendary punk bands like The Misfits and Agent Orange to highly respected musicians including Deke Dickerson and Los Straitjackets. Jerry Mellix, aka Southside Jerry, has been entertaining audiences with his unique musical sound and style in and around Pittsburgh since the mid-60s. By 1979, Jerry was playing saxophone in back-up bands for various artists performing in Pittsburgh such as Lee Dorsey, The Temptations, The O'Jays, The Coasters and many more. Jerry's incomparable sax and vocal style has been heard everywhere from Trump's Plaza in Atlantic City tto the French Quarter blues bars of New Orleans to Caesar's Palace in Las Vegas.

Flood City Brass – Formed in 2002, Flood City Brass is one of the area’s most popular groups and plays frequently at festivals and other events. This nine-piece band from Johnstown features male and female lead vocalists, keyboard, guitar, bass, drums, trumpet, sax, and trombone, and will come out with their bluesiest set for this event!

The schedule is as follows:
noon-1:15 Flood City Brass
1:40-3:00 Ben Dumm with Southside Jerry
3:30-4:45 Jukehouse Bombers
