    Amanda's first guitar was pulled from a dumpster at a construction site where her father worked, and was handed to her after some furniture polish and a mixed set of half-used strings. Despite the collection of varied instruments and equipment he owned, her father's knowledge of music consisted of a crude concept of the major scale only in C, and the fingering for basic G, C, and F chords. She learned what she could from whoever could teach, and what couldn't be taught, she learned on her own. Amanda spent most of her childhood immersed in almost every genre of music by way of a number of great musicians who have either passed on, or whose time for music has passed them by. Since the day her parents brought her home from the hospital into a trailer full of musicians, poets, and artists, she has been in love with music.

Mike McMonagle
    Friday April 27, 2012 8:45pm - 9:15pm @ The Taproom (25 West King St. Lancaster, PA 17603)

    At an age when most kids start playing with matches, Mike McMonagle was, well, also playing with matches. Luckily, the day came when matches lost their luster and he picked up a guitar. It was a Saturday, presumably, and the Pennsylvania sky was blue and cloudless (probably). The first chord he ever strummed was an E minor; to this day, Mike still plays that chord, along with others, to craft an array of folk-inspired ditties about riding trains, drinking wine and the Commonwealth of Virginia. Listening to Mike perform is like taking a deep breath while watching the sun rise on a crisp, dewy morning, after a sleepless night of heavy drinking.

    Craig has been called this generation's "troubadour piano man" (Jambands.com, Jan 2011), combining the pop sensibilities and greatly skilled musicianship of Billy Joel and Ben Folds, with the lyrical smarts of Randy Newman.  His voice brims with soul and personality, coming from his strong native New Yorker identity, and also from his experience getting his start while living abroad, performing in the bars and on the streets of Chile and Spain from 2001 to 2003.  Since moving back to his home city in 2004, Craig has been a mainstay on the downtown and Brooklyn music scene, and as well has toured nationally and internationally.

    Craig's songs, in content and feel, run the gamut from light-hearted and tongue and cheek, to quite dark and edgy.  It's his range as a songwriter that sets him apart.

Darry Miller and The Veil

    From an early age, Darry Miller’s life has been filled with music. His mom took him to his dad’s gigs as a baby and when he got his first drum set at three, he showed an intuitive ability to play. It wasn’t long before he was sitting in with the band, cutting his teeth on rock and roll.

    As he got older, he began playing around with digital recording equipment and spent his formative years alone in the basement with it, experimenting with the layering of sounds, tones, harmonies and beats, igniting a true passion for music and an understanding of how powerful it can be.

    The solitude Darry found in his basement while recording those first songs lent an intimacy to his lyrics then that he carries through to his songs today. Trying to understand life, love, loss and ambitions are a constant theme and are easily related to by his growing fan base. That fan base started when he passed some demos around to his friends at school and continues to expand as more people are turned on to his unique combination of pop, funk, blues and Americana.

    In 2009, Darry signed with the independent label Ripple Creative Records and now tours with several very talented band members: Mike Elliot, Alan Greiner, Dylan Madar, and Derek Jenkins.  After many long ours writing and recording Darry released his first EP Green under Ripple Creative Records in March 2010.

    Since that time, Darry Miller and The Veil has been playing shows all over the North East, multiplying there fan base with each and every show.  The band recorded 3 killer new songs in mid 2011, that have already been released, and can be heard LIVE at a show near you!  Once Darry’s vocals reach the tip of your ear drums, you will understand the buzz about how this is just the beginning to an amazing musical career for Darry Miller and The Veil.

Like Wild
    Saturday April 28, 2012 9:30pm - 10:00pm @ The Taproom (25 West King St. Lancaster, PA 17603)

     

    Free to Badge Holders and Saturday/Weekend Wristbands | $3 without Badge or Wristband

    The musical endeavor of an honest young man, Like Wild is the solo undertaking of Lancaster County's own Patrick Hatt. Like Wild's finely honed and uniquely folksy-Americana style channels his own down to earth and personable nature and infuses it in songs written about the extraordinary parts of the everyday: love, optimism, and the ultimate importance of being true to yourself. Like Wild's self-titled debut was released June 15th, 2010. The four song EP is a loosely compacted nugget of the stuff that makes Like Wild so easy to listen to - simple, genuine songs about the relatable problems and feelings everyone experiences. The EP was produced and engineered by friend Kurt DeMarra and mastered by Carl Saff, and is available through iTunes, Amazon, and other digital retailers. Be sure to catch Like Wild live in the upcoming months in support of his brand new release.
