The singer/songwriter Jason Teach has been playing and performing for the last 20 years. His sound has evolved over the years and some things have always remained true. His voice is pure, and his honesty and heartfelt sensitivity comes through in his music. In the mid-90’s, Jason and three other artists combined to create the band FOAM. The songwriter’s talent was recognized and FOAM was signed with Epic Records. They recorded in New York City with Michael Beinhorn and played with several major acts, including Live, Smash Mouth, Everclear and Better than Ezra. Their CD, Big Windshield Little Mirror, was released in the spring of 1997. He has since played and recorded with other bands, such as The Curves’ Goo’bye Jack, which can be found on Apple Music; and with his current band, Lucy. Lucy has recorded and released two albums, Curiosity and Second to None. Jason’s focus now is to play, perform and entertain in as many different venues as possible to bring smiles to people’s faces and write the songs that make the whole world sing.

Jason Masi is an American/DC based singer-songwriter. He got his start with Richmond, VA based group, Jubeus, opening for acts like Blind Melon, Everclear, and SOJA and releasing two well received albums, “Two Tone Circles” 2004 and “Natural Mood” 2007, respectively. He stepped out as a solo artist in 2010, trading in the band’s roots-jam driven rock for a more acoustic soul/R&B songwriter approach. He approaches his music in much the same way he does life. His laid back and easy going personality translates into the lyrics and tone of his music yet his performances are energetic and portray him as the hardworking musician he is. It’s a contrast that suits Masi well, as he goes from hobnobbing with his new fans like they are old pals, and catching up with longtime fans before he takes the stage for an energetic and passionate set.

After studying the blues and becoming obsessed with where it came from, Pete sold his pickup truck and bought a guitar. His influences are many and come from every stage of the early blues timeline. From master like Sonny Boy Williamson, Mississippi John Hurt, Mance Lipscomb, John lee Hooker, just to name a few. From then on Pete became a veritable one-man blues army, as he sang the songs of old blues masters while simultaneously playing acoustic slide-guitar, rack-mounted harmonica, and stompin’ box- Live Music is Better!

A bittersweet comedy that is an astute, snapshot sharp chronicle of the lives of three Texas girls. In 1963, Joanne, Kathy, and Mary are aggressively vivacious cheerleaders. Five years later in their college sorority house, they are confronting their futures with nervous jauntiness. In 1974, they reunite briefly in New York. Their lives have diverged their friendship, which once thrived on assumption as well coordinated as sweater sets, is strained and ambiguous. Old time banter rings false. Their attempts at honest conversation only show they can no longer afford to have very much in common.

Todd Haines is an acoustic guitarist/vocalist from Williamsport, MD. Lew Palladino is a guitarist/vocalist from Hagerstown, MD, best known for decades of live performances with The Rhythm Kings. Their style is stripped down to the elemental basics of guitars and mics, and draws on a lifetime of musical influences from classic rock to country to blues and everything in between. A typical performance will feature songs both well-known and more obscure, from a range of artists and genres from The Beatles to Zac Brown, with the goal of an ever-expanding set list and musical experience.

One of the most enduring shows of all time, Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat is a reimagining of the Biblical story of Joseph, his father Jacob, eleven brothers and the coat of many colors. The magical musical is full of catchy songs in a variety of styles, from a parody of French ballads; “Those Canaan Days,” to country-western, “One More Angel in Heaven,” and calypso “Benjamin Calypso,” along with the unforgettable classics, “Any Dream Will Do,” and “Close Every Door.”

This contemporary retelling of Joseph will put a focus on storytelling and present the show in a modern way audiences haven’t seen before!
