Dustin Douglas, Host: Dustin Douglas is the founder, lead singer, guitarist and songwriter for Wilkes-Barre Pennsylvania’s award-winning, chart topping, blues-rock, power trio Dustin Douglas & The Electric Gentlemen. While best known for his powerful stage performances with DDEG, Dustin Douglas still enjoys performing with simply a microphone and his trusty Martin, acoustic guitar.

Dustin’s solo performances have been garnering rising crowds for over a decade and include his unique takes on classic covers as well as stripped down versions of his career spanning catalogue.

Dustin won the Steamtown Music Award for Guitarist of the Year in 2017 and took home two more SMA’S in 2018 including Blues Artist of the Year and Album of the Year for Dustin Douglas & The Electric Gentlemen’s BREAK IT DOWN.

Brendan Brisk: Brendan Brisk is a funk/blues musician from Wilkes-Barre, PA, known as the lead guitarist of Half Dollar and Fake Fight. In 2016 he released “Astral Counterfeit,” a self-recorded, self-produced solo album that introduces art funk: a boundless genre influenced by everything from abstract art to outer space. Currently, Brendan fronts the Brendan Brisk Blues Band, a psychedelic jazz fusion outfit grounded by a blues foundation.

Mike Elward: Mike Elward is a Country musician from Plains Pa. For the last 10 years Mike has been performing in bars and clubs all over Northeast Pa. Over a year ago, Mike joined up with the recently formed, Wells River Band as a Guitarist and Vocalist while still playing solo shows.  In August of 2018, The Wells River Band won The Steamtown Music Award for Country Act of the Year. He is currently working on a solo album for an upcoming release. Mike’s influences include CCR, Bob Seger, Luke Combs and Eric Church.

Jacob Waxmonsky: Wilkes-Barre PA native, Jacob Waxmonsky began his love for heavy metal music after hearing Black Sabbath’s “Paranoid” from front to back at age 13. Shortly after this initation rite, he bought his first guitar and fell into a lifetime of picking.At 17 he started cutting his teeth on live performances in various clubs, bars and halls.

Waxmonsky ebbed and flowed through various incarnations of solo monikers, and failed bands but at 19 he formed his current outfit, the psychedelic heavy metal band, “Gods of Space.”

Gods disbanded and reformed in 2017 and played various local shows along with out of town dates.  Gods released a full length record in November 2018 that encapsulates the love of heavy music that Waxmonsky developed. Waxmonsky looks into 2019 to further Gods of Space as a band while recording solo material that has taken a back seat as if recent.

John Novak: John Novak is a singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist known for his work with Down To Six and Aaron Fink & The Fury.

Jesse Mower: Jesse Mower is the lead guitarist/ vocalist for power trio Static in the Attic. The Carbondale, PA guitarist draws inspiration from old school blues and funk to classic rock. With a knack for exciting high energy live performances, Mower is a local shredder you won’t want to miss!
