A special thank you to all of the talented performers who give their time to offer affordable entertainment for our community!
A fan favorite among our regular Coffee House performers, Meat & Potatoes offers quality acoustic sets featuring bluegrass, gospel and oldies genres.
When it comes to putting a tune to the dancing steps, there's no better choice than Rosie and The Jammers. This upbeat six-piece polka act has been a staple at local events and festivals for over two decades and is known just as much for their great showmanship as their talent and is always a crowd favorite. Three people that were instrumental in giving the band their professional start were Bill & Deb Marano and Rose Mary Hagadus. Rosie and The Jammers was formed for the very first Johnstown Polkafest in 1997 and have been regulars in the scene ever since.
The SharpTones have been entertaining crowds of all ages since 2006. The group members are Michael Merschiltz and Renee Dey. These two have a love of all music, especially the oldies. The former manager and third member of The SharpTones was the late Denny Ivory, who is still honored in the heart and voices of Michael and Renee. Originally founded by the late Denny Ivory, Michael & Renee sing a wide variety of cover tunes, from oldies to musical theatre and everywhere in between! They always welcome new friends and take requests.
Michael has been on stage at The Historic Mishler Theater in numerous productions including Tick... Tick.. Boom! and Mamma Mia. His most recent lead was right here at the Community Arts Center as Daniel Corban in Catch Me If You Can. Renee has been a cantor at the Cathedral of the Blessed Sacrament for many years and is a dedicated member of the choir.
Midnight Graffiti is female fronted classic rock'n'roll, featuring Natalie Kurchak and Laken Noelle on lead vocals, John Kurchak and Bernie Kralik on lead and rhythm guitar, John D. Kurchak on Bass and Jason Williams on drums.
Tim has a well-developed fingerstyle guitar technique, a product of more than 40 years of teaching and performing acoustic music. His melodic playing style compliments his tenor voice, and is well suited to the topical songs as well as the tender ballads that make up his repertoire. Tim cites Gordon Lightfoot, Harry Chapin and John Denver as influences on his performance and songwriting style. He writes in the topical style much of the time, and has mastered the story song. "I write about nouns,” Tim joked during an interview on National Public Radio. “I take my inspiration from people that I’ve met, and the places that I’ve been. I’m humbled by the fact that people come out to listen to the stories and songs that I have to share. Live music has brought many people of many cultures together over the years; I’m proud to be a part of that ongoing tradition.”
Tim will also be back at the Community Arts Center as one of the performers for Log Art Theatre productions Tales of Music & Monsters in October and A Jimmy Stewart Christmas in December.
