FRI Nov. 30th 6:30pm VOMA Presents: the EFFECTS with Essential Machine / Mike Miller / Nag Champions Mystery Band
Formed in Washington, D.C. in January of 2014, the EFFECTS are Devin Ocampo, Matthew Dowling, and David Rich. A multi-instrumentalist, Ocampo is a former member of the bands Faraquet, Medications, Smart Went Crazy, and Deathfix, all of whom released music on Dischord Records. He has also toured and recorded with Mary Timony, Beauty Pill, and J. Robbins. Dowling was the bassist and co-leader of Deleted Scenes, while Rich was the drummer in the instrumental group, Buildings.
Their full-length debut, Eyes to the Light, was released in the fall of 2017 on Dischord. https://theeffects.bandcamp.com/

-Essential Machine, it's safe to say, doesn't fit the profile of your standard family band. The indie three-piece, which calls the Pittsburgh suburb of Greensburg home, has always been the vehicle of married couple Karen and R.J. Dietrich; they put out their first record under the moniker in 2009. But a funny thing happened in 2014, after the duo had already been recording and playing together for years: They incorporated son Robert into their act, on keyboards. https://essentialmachine.bandcamp.com/

-Mike Miller is a brilliant local singer/songwriter, front man for Endless Mike and the Beagle Club and was a founding member of Johnstown music collective My Idea of Fun.

-Nag Champions Mystery Band from the Ebensburg/Patton area. Drawing from classic rock and roll, blues, folk, and country music the band blends together sounds of the past, present, and future. https://www.nagchampions.com/

FRI Dec. 8th 7:00pm VOMA Presents:
The Adler & Barath Blues Band
Welcome back to Johnstown two veterans of the International Blues Challenge, a past Flood City Music Festival performer, a 2018 Cambria City Ethnic Festival performer and a couple of Western PA's finest Blues musicians!

If you're a fan of Harmonica driven Classic Blues, the Adler & Barath Blues Band is a "must-see"! Fronted by Charlie Barath, one of Western Pennsylvania's top harmonica players, and leaning heavily on the authentic guitar work of Pittsburgh's very own Jimmy Adler, this band provides a big sound that is deeply rooted in the fabric of old school Blues!

Adler and Barath have been making music together both as a duo as well as in a band context since 2013, and it just keeps getting better! Backed by an always solid rhythm section, they know how to get the room jumpin' from the first note. Whether it's swinging dance rhythms or some low down, greasy blues, the Adler & Barath Blues Band will have your toes tappin' and fingers snappin' as they roll through their repertoire of Classic Blues, Swing and creative originals. They'll be channeling the likes of Jimmy Reed, Otis Rush, Muddy Waters, Sonny Boy Williamson, Jimmy Rogers, Little Walter, Magic Sam and George Harmonica Smith, just to name a few! Good googly moogly! A MUST SEE Show!!!
