David Mowry w/Dale Melton & Bill Zinno
David Mowry is the father of the father and son Roots Americana duo, sometimes quartet and sometimes quintet, Beaucoup Blue. It is no exaggeration to call David one of the hidden gems of American roots music, with musical beginnings in Woodstock playing alongside many of the biggest names in the industry. His terse playing and supple slide work on guitar are unmistakeable, and his gravelly voice is tinged with grunts and velvet overtones. David may be one of the finest musicians in the USA who has managed to fly under the radar for his entire career - largely due to his humility and desire to eschew the limelight and vacuous siren song of the music biz.
He teams up with long time associates and stellar musicians Dale Melton of the Melton Brothers and keyboardist for Lili Anel, plus Bill Zinno, one of the premier bassists in the Philadelphia tri-state area. Dale is well known to fans for his explosive piano and organ work and trademark fedora hiding his face as he strides along the keyboard. Bill brings many years of professional performance on the double bass gained as an orchestral and jazz bassist and sideman for numerous popular music groups.
This show presents predominately original music that David has been, with the help of Dale and Bill, exploring for years and represents another side of David from the work heís done with his son Adrian. These first rate veterans promise a night of music that will have the critics raving. It is about time for the music world to take note of this exceptionally fine player and songwriter, and his able sidemen.
Steve Zinno is a singer/songwriter and multi-instrumentalist who has been active in the Philadelphia tri-state area music scene since the 1970's. A storytellerin the most literal sense of the word, his original compositions have been favorably compared to the works of masters such as James Taylor, Jackson Browne, Dan Fogelberg, and Bruce Springsteen, and strongly bear their folk-rock influences. With songs touching on topics such as love and loss, flirtation and fantasy, and introspective soul-searching and reminiscence, the listener will likely be taken on a nostalgic journey through their own life's trials and tribulations and left with a sense of longing for a more innocent time.
Joel Keeley is a solo guitarist, banjoist, and singer! He is a passionate, dedicated, and motivated musician. His influences include James Taylor, Tommy Emmanuel, Antonio Carlos Jobim, Richard Rodgers, Nat King Cole, Alison Krauss, the list goes on. With only 3-4 years of playing under his belt he’s already ready to release his debut album “Whatever May Come”, an easy listening jazz/country styled instrumental album. Joel has already won recognition and acknowledgment from James Taylor himself. Come enjoy the calming atmosphere of Joel’s music, as he takes you with him on his journeys through the power of his songs.
