The Morning After
The Morning After
The Morning After is a different kind of band. Imagine an eclectic Motown sound, fueled by bluegrass, dripping with soul with just a touch of latin and jazz and you'll get the idea. Lead vocalist, Rachel Koontz employs a commanding, soulful style reminiscent of the Motown sound of the 60's and 70's. Pattie "Pips" Hopkins adds a rich, soulful voice to balance Rachel's exactly and her soaring violin and fiddle abilities are the icing on the cake. The backline of Lindsey Tims on bass and Mike Rosado on drums evokes passion and soul, driving the band like Detroit steel. The Morning After is rounded out by virtuoso banjo and mandolin players Hank Smith and Shawn Chase who add intertwining melodies like a rich, musical conversation. Did you notice there's no mention of a guitar? They get it done without one. All together, The Morning After will entertain you with a high energy, eclectic mix of soul, rock, jazz, Latin and bluegrass that makes the audience insane for more!

Mac & Juice Quartet
Mac & Juice Quartet
Since their beginnings well over a decade ago, Mac & Juice have made tremendous evolutionary strides from their days as a dynamic acoustic duo. Now performing as an electrified Quartet, their vast stylistic range remains seamlessly translated into every original song. The band personally describes their sound as “Jammy-Soul-Rock & Roll.” Performing a minimum of 100 shows every year, they consistently prove that they are a force to be reckoned with onstage, to every audience they encounter. Whether listening to their album or experienced live, the end result is a sound all its own that lends itself to a very broad range of listeners.
The first release of the solidified Mac & Juice Quartet lineup, Can You Tell Me showcases the organic, electric essence of the band in its current, always evolving form. The nine songs on the album perfectly document the band's gravitation to an edgier rock influence and highlight the unity of the ensemble as a whole, while still maintaining the signature warmth and soulful roots of the music itself at its core.
