Blink-182, A Day to Remember, All Time Low play Scranton’s Montage Mountain

SCRANTON — The new-look Blink-182 stopped at The Pavilion at Montage Mountain Aug. 25, and they came armed to the teeth with talent.

‘Mixed Bag’ of blues is a hit for JP Williams, Blues Broker Records

‘Mixed Bag’ of blues is a hit for JP Williams, Blues Broker Records

The first few seconds of steely, punctuated chording that opens J.P. Williams’ “Mixed Bag” is evocative of what the next 11 tracks hold – sparse, yet rhythmically rumbling acoustic blues. The track, a Delta-dished interpretation of Bo Diddley’s “Who Do You Love,” is everything that Williams is known for, musically – string-snapping zips via resonator […]

A Day to Remember’s busy 2016 brings them to Scranton’s Montage Mountain

SCRANTON — A Day to Remember is a musical Jekyll and Hyde — they’re able to seamlessly switch between the singalong choruses of pop-punk and the screaming aggression of the genre’s cousin, hardcore, making them logical tour mates for everyone from Blink-182 to Slipknot.

Pyers brings his hard rock back with ’ Well of Souls’

Jack Pyers knows where he belongs – firmly planted behind the back-beat of a salacious hard rock anthem. Pyers, the ex-bassist for PA-based rockers, Dirty Looks, who scored nationally in the late ’80s with Atlantic Records, (he’s also famously played with Central PA’s Harpo), is back with a collection of tunes returning him to sleazed-out […]
