“The Lillies”

 

 Heaven Bound is just another name for “Liz Collins”, a Christian guitarist/singer/songwriter who wrote a song in 2002 called “Heaven Bound”. Liz has been singing since she was 3, playing guitar since she was 9 and writing songs since she was 13. Raised a Christian, behind southern rock ‘n roll, she finally gave her writing over to the Lord around 1996. The band features Liz Collins on acoustic guitar and vocals and Pete Boglino on drums, and David Powers on vocals and lead/rhythm guitar with their direction and energy focused on “rockin for Jesus Christ”. To this day, Liz Collins performs solo in many venues, from churches to coffee houses, from benefits to festivals,  as well as prison ministries and addiction anonymous groups and still likes to go by the name “Heaven Bound” whether she is solo or with her band. This will be the last performance with the band as Pete will be moving out of the area. With Christ as her guiding light and a rock, and funky, bluesy style to move your spirit, who knows where GOD will lead this “woman of musical faith” spreading the message of Jesus Christ in song and praises. Opening up for Heaven Bound will be the folk trio “The Lillies”. Don’t miss our 15th year celebration. And of course we’ll be giving away lot’s of prizes.

 Bob Stanhope is a singer, songwriter, and sometimes humorist who has performed for over four decades in clubs and coffeehouses mainly around the northeast.  While his more serious material might be compared to Billy Joel, Harry Chapin, or Paul Stookey of Peter, Paul, and Mary, his comic / satirical side could be likened to Weird Al Yankovick or Tom Lehrer. Bob grew up in Irvington, NY and began performing his progressive folk / humor act years ago while still in college in Pennsylvania .  He is an thirteen time winner in the Billboard Magazine Songwriter Contest, a performing member of the Hudson Valley Folk Guild, and also an Artistic Member of Mosaic Ministries (a group that promotes musical missionaries. He has been a guest on live national TV and has even recorded with Les Paul! Bob continues to entertain audiences from Jersey to Massachusetts with his song writing and outstanding voice. Some of the accolades written about Bob include,  "Quality music and hard hitting lyrics, all mixed with humor."              

- Rev. Jim Wickstead - Valley Bible Fellowship, Clove Valley, NY and "Wow, what a voice."                                                     

- David Letterman - The Late Show on CBS. Bob performs mostly solo now but has also been a part of the bands, Cross Purpose and Cornerstone. Don’t miss out on this amazing performance! You wont be disappointed

 To Write Love on Her Arms is a non-profit movement dedicated to presenting hope & finding help for people struggling with depression, addiction, self-injury, & suicide.

   This began in the spring of 2006, when To Write Love on Her Arms founder Jamie Tworkowski wrote a story about a friend struggling with depression, addiction, and self- injury. The words and the life it represented shed light on the reality of contrast—pain and peace, addiction and sobriety, regret and freedom.

   Over the years, TWLOHA has become much more than a blog and a T-shirt. Through musician support, tours, and social media, the message of hope and help has reached an audience broader than we could have ever anticipated. We’ve expanded from a computer screen to conferences, campuses, programs, and events around the country and the world, where we challenge the stigma and stereotypes that have surrounded mental health issues for so long. And we’re investing into treatment and recovery, offering financial support to organizations, centers, and individuals laboring in the priceless work of healing.

   All the proceeds from ticket sales and the sale of wrist bands will go to TWLOHA. A great night of music and fun all for a worthy cause.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Juan Catorce Band

November 15

web 

 

 

 

 

 Juan Catorce Band is a modern rock band based in the Lancaster County area of Central Pennsylvania. With a sound strongly influenced by 90s alternative bands such as Weezer and Toad The Wet Sprocket, they always give their crowds a high energy show that all ages can enjoy. Between and after sets, they also enjoy engaging with their audiences on a personal level. They’re also the only band they know of that regularly has a piñata on stage at every show.

 

Originally formed early 2012, the band released a free EP called Longing For Blue Skies (available on NoiseTrade) in early 2013, and followed up with their debut album Break Me in August. They hope to record more music in 2014.

 

Juan Catorce Band's debut album has a potent combination of rock, pop, and worship sounds. No piñatas were harmed during the recording of this album.

  Headstone 118 is a 3 piece metal/progressive rock band hailing from the Reading area. They were voted the “fan favorite” in the 2012 “Power to End Stoke” music awards contest in New York City.

  Rockin out since 2000, the present line-up since 2007 consists of Jer Rohrbach on vocals and guitars, Mark Lackman on percussion and vocals, and Bill Dilks on bass, moog and synths. As a band they deliver a strong message both Spiritually and Politically! Headstones mission is to reach those in need of a savior, which is all of us, and teach the importance of holding onto what this country was founded on and for!

   With their sound similar to bands like Alice in Chains, Demon Hunter and Skillet, their songs have had airplay on numerous radio stations. This band is the “Real Deal”. Don’t miss their first gig at Karen’s Place.
