Upcoming Feature Performers

THE HARMONATORS Friday, March 6, 2015

IMG_4334C-webI guess you could say that the Harmonators are our house band! In addition to being fine musicians and performers, the three members of the group are also co-hosts of the Jam’n Java Open Mic at Kickstand Café.

Way back when, Dianne “De” Iannitelli and Glen Woodworth – already a performing duo – asked Joe Burns to back them up on guitar and provide additional harmony on a couple of tunes for the open mic. Their voices blended well and they quickly learned they shared similar tastes in music. The name came from joking around at one of their rehearsals when someone said, “Hey, we’re really harmonating!”

Their repertoire combines original material as well as their own take on traditional, and contemporary classics. If you enjoy good music, tight harmonies, and solid musicianship they are an act not to be missed.

 THE FRETBOX TRIO Friday, April 3


RANDALL KROMM Friday, June 5
