MATT JORDAN

A genuine performer, Matt sings and plays the piano with conviction. Blues, funk, and New Orleans jazz are his musical backbone, and his faith shines through in his passionate love for gospel. His rhythmic left hand drives each song along with enthusiasm, and he has learned much from a voracious study of Dr. John, James Booker, Allen Toussaint, the Neville Brothers, and others. The result is a stage presence that will captivate any audience.

LOGANTOWN BLUEGRASS MUSIC

LoganTown is a new bluegrass band made of experience musicians from the four corners of West Virginia. They specialize in traditional as well as contemporary, hard-driving bluegrass music.  The band consists of Aaron Holley, Chris Warnick, Tiffany Rice and Tyler Rice.

With 14 years, four live albums, and one studio release now under its belt, the band continues to use its twin lead guitar attack to mix classic and contemporary blues styles in performances across the country. Mahajibee regularly receives airplay on HD radio, local and regional blues stations, and blues radio in Europe, Canada, and Australia. The band is currently preparing for the 2014 releases of a live album, New Boots, Vol.1, which provides a retrospective look at the 2013 touring season, and new original and cover material. – See more at: http://www.mahajibeeblues.com/bio/#sthash.vFSQtVPJ.dpuf
