DIMESTORE DOLLS ARE RELEASING A NEW SINGLE!!!
It’s our second recorded song every… and we’re throwing a hell of a concert to celebrate it. This is a sampler of some exciting music coming out of Lancaster at this time… Three great local bands will perform in this 8pm-11:30pm show: Dimestore Dolls, Health Club, and Jon Smith’s Voyages.
Dimestore Dolls perform harmony-heavy female-centric original rock… and some killer covers too. The lineup for this performance is Mollie Swartz, Jeanette Stillman, Kelly Buchanan, Christy Engel, Chris Whalen and James Lipka subbing for Scott Frenchek. Dimestore Dolls Lay Down the Law! www.dimestoredolls.com
Health Club is not simply a band, a punk-dada, performance troupe, a mere garage-grunge-psyche outfit emanating out of Lancaster, PA. No, dear friends, Health Club is an invitation, a portal, a machine that processes your information. https://hlthclb.com
Jon Smith’s Voyages
Sounds like David Bowie and Freddie Mercury had a love child,” claimed one fan upon his first encounter with Jon Smith’s Voyages. A strange but bold statement, his analogy holds up. Many fans say the style of front man Jon Paul Smith’s songwriting is reminiscent of daring acts like Queen, Bowie, and even Broadway musicals. Yet Smith achieves his sound naturally with unique piano-based arrangements and an incredible vocal range to create a genre best described as “theatrical-rock.”
Jon Smith’s Voyages entertained as a solo act for years as Smith struggled to assemble a band. In the meantime, he became his own backing band and played no less than 15 instruments on the debut album, Indeed (2016). Recreating the dynamics of the album finally became possible in 2018 when some radical musicians joined Smith on his voyages. With Smith on keys, vocals, and wind instruments, the live band is completed by Charlie Wanyo on guitar, Luke Blair on bass, Kevin Beerman on drums, vocals, and percussion, and Brendan Quinn on organ, guitar, and vocals.
This band brings their brand of theatrical rock to a whole new level!
