Rascal Revival
Rascal Revival
Rascal Revival is an alternative folk rock trio that formed in late 2017 in Harrisburg, PA. The trio features local musicians who each have their own unique background, influences & styles - from classical training, experience in other bands, to years of experience as a solo performer. The lyrically-conscious songwriting of R.J. Conrad, percussive skill of Jay Knaub, along with the impeccable talent of Caleb Stelle on violin makes for a sound that is catchy & familiar while maintaining a uniqueness & energy that is sure to keep you coming back for more!
The Jayplayers
The Jayplayers
Our first rehearsals were in a local park; something of singing outside, in summertime, for no one in particular, that speaks to the natural ease of our collective relationship with music” – remarks The Jayplayers, of their formation in 2013 in Hershey, Pennsylvania. Their songwriting is unassumingly authentic, derived from a shared, somewhat unconscious viewpoint. It seems their process was one in the same – to not really have a process; to write without intention, merely recording song ideas as they overcame their minds. “Our songs are most simply commenting on the human condition; words and music in harmony, made to strike a chord in the hearts of many.”

This Americana act, based around the songwriting of Keeley McCue and Chris Weidensaul, has developed from an acoustic duo into a full electric band set up as well. The inclusion of bassist Michael Broda and drummer Tyler Kollinok into the fold, has resulted in their debut LP Glitter & Wine (2016) and new EP, The Jayplayers: Little Bit Country. This sophomore project, recorded in the renowned MilkBoy Studios in Philadelphia, was released worldwide in February 2018 across all digital platforms (iTunes, Spotify etc.).

Over the past four years, not only has their collection of songs grown into a multiple records, but they have also gained great notoriety for their hundreds of live performances. They have moved from playing local eateries and area listening rooms, to nationally recognized venues such as Rockwood Music Hall and World Cafe Live. With their highly anticipated EP and expanded band format, you will surely be hearing even more from The Jayplayers - so stay tuned!
