Frog Holler - (Set time: 11:00 PM)
Frog Holler
Originally formed as a bluegrass trio, Frog Holler has evolved into a genre-defying, mostly
electric sextet, releasing six full length recordings and an ep since 1996. They have built their
reputation on marathon live shows, loose but honest, emotional investments that have paid
off with an intensely loyal fan base that far outreaches its Berks County, Pennsylvania home.
Pretty amazing considering the band has toured cautiously throughout it’s career, preferring
the quality over quantity route in an effort to stay sane, intact and solvent. They remain
independent serving as their own manager, booking their own shows and releasing their own
records (ZoBird Records), sacrificing a wider appeal to remain in control enabling them to
continue making music and functioning as a band in the truest sense of the word. Every
Tuesday night Frog Holler convenes at a local Berks Co. musical enclave known as the
Moonlight Forest to hang out, have a meal, and play some music. Holler drummer, Daniel
Bower, lives at the house and with the help of Ben Longenecker built a pro tools studio in
2007, opening the door for Frog Holler to do something it had always wanted, make a
recording in the comforts of its home surroundings. With Longenecker co-producing, the
band spent most of 2008 fleshing out the songs upstairs in the rehearsal space and then
walking down to the basement to put them to tape. The result is “Believe It Or Not”, ten
brand new songs from Frog Holler available Spring 2009 on ZoBird Records.
Hezekiah Jones - (Set time: 10:00 PM)
Hezekiah Jones
Hezekiah Jones is the musical nom de plume for Raphael Cutrufello and a band of like-minded musicians crafting alternative folk music. His catalog of songs sometimes sounds like a post-apocalyptic White Album, as covered by Sufjan Stevens. The biting, sometimes campy vibe only serves to intensify the blow of his sucker-punch ballads. Songs are filled with outlandish characters, imagined landscapes..., ringing harmonies, and baroque instrumental flourishes, but never disconnect from the tangible feelings at their center.
