website: http://www.oldhippiesmusic.com/

Bio: For these time traveling old hippies, Bill McDonald, Jim Catino, Kay McMahon,Vinnie Pastore, and Jim Sweet, it has always been about the music. Beginning on front porches, in fields and parks and around the campfires of the sixties, the seed was planted. It has grown over the years as they have traveled across the North American continent, entertaining countless numbers of entertainment revelers, while continuing the journey….

Now they’ve come full circle with an enduring passion for the music of their youth. The music of the Old Hippies is acoustic and a varied brand, be it their own creative songs or recognizable covers from a golden musical era: the fifties, sixties and seventies and on and on…, nostalgic to those who lived it and romanced by those who didn’t.

They have brought with them those unmistakable vocal harmonies and pleasing acoustic renditions of so many great tunes…missed by many, remembered by most and loved by all. When the Old Hippies sing and play, it’s an event for all to share. Invite us over for an afternoon or evening of wonderful music.

Old Hippies will leave everyone with…. a smile on their face, peace in their mind, and a song in their heart!

Soulfish

Genre: Rock

Website: www.soulfishband.com

BIO: Soulfish is an acoustic rock band playing joyful music from the Indigo Girls, Joni Mitchell,  and the Allman Bros., interspersed with contemporary songs by Adele and Grace Potter. We accentuate three part harmonies featuring Alicia, Fred and Steve because we believe listeners connect to the vocals. Fred Johnson’s world-beat hand-drumming creates a rich texture that supports the music without cluttering it. Once in a while we even throw in an original (Energy Of Music) that we hope you’ll like too.
