Dirk Quinn is a Philadelphia based guitarist who has utilized nearly a decade of steady performing to develop a unique and progressive style – one that sits somewhere between jazz, funk and rock.
Initially attracted to the guitar as a teenager after being introduced to classic rock giants such as Led Zeppelin and The Who, Quinn's thirst for the unique and bizarre soon had him jamming along to the more radical and daring Mahavishnu Orchestra and the humorous, bass-laden noise of Primus.
Playing virtually non-stop with countless musical projects afforded him ample opportunity to hone his chops. It wouldn't be long before the refining of his own artistic message coupled with a fresh, new outlook and a deeper musical/life philosophy opened up to him the world of jazz. Miles, Coltrane, Monk and Brubeck along with the more contemporary sounds of Bela Fleck, John Scofield, Ahmad Jamal and Jaco Pastorius began heavily influencing his musical direction.
Liberated by the idea of free improvisation, he was finally able to realize and focus his musical vision.
Renowned for their exciting live shows, Roi and the Secret People (RSP) features the beautiful and mesmerizing voice of Mike Roi and the musical talents of Randy Melick on guitar, Craig Martyn on drums, Dan DeChellis on piano, and Glen Radomski on bass.
Roi, who hails from southern Florida, set out to assemble a group of talented, experienced, and like-minded musicians to create the version of rock music he was raised with. Armed with all original music, RSP has played such renowned clubs as Rockwood Music Hall and Arlene's Grocery in New York City and The Tin Angel and The Legendary Dobbs in Philly.
Their first album, Dog St., includes a variety of tunes from the stunning, haunting song, "Firefly," to the balls-to-the- wall sound of the title track "Dog St."
Their newly released 2nd album, Phoenix, blends Roi's pop sensibilities with an alternative rock twist mired in sounds from the likes of Nick Lowe to Tom Petty.
Roi has been known to state that all he usually needs is a good bottle of bourbon, a case of beer, a good cigar, and a guitar to create the kind of true-blue, sexy, and salt-of-the earth music that has captivated audiences in the tri-state area.
Eclectic, diverse, and thoroughly original, RSP is a band that combines a classic rock vibe with a lyrical, wholly unique sound.
Featuring Grammy Winner Scot Sax, Suzie Brown and Michael Ronstadt. Hosted by J.D Malone. 21st Century Troubadours is a monthly singer / songwriter series In the Round.
Troubadours were an integral part of courtly life. Their songs provided narrative insight into the lives and courts of the noblemen. The courtly duties of these poet-musicians were both literary and musical as they composed to reflect the issues, feelings and characteristics in the castles and courts of the wealthy. The root verbs "trobar" and "trouver" mean "to find" or "to invent" and imply that troubadours were perhaps also gifted improvisers of both verse and music.
Writings of thirteenth-century troubadour Guiraut Requier suggest that four ranks of troubadours existed (Falvy). The jongleurs were only part-time musicians; their primary function was to entertain using acrobatics, animals, and props. Menestrels were full-time musicians; their rank is subordinate to the troubadour because their repertoire consisted primarily of other composers' songs. The troubadours were the composers of music and lyric; they primarily performed their own songs. The highest ranks of troubadours were the doctores de trobar who were the most outstanding of the composers.

What started with two brothers (Rich and Rob Kwait) and two dogs on a mountain retreat has become a road tested working band - playing festivals, joints, coffeehouses and other odd venues for the last 10 years. Highlights include the Newport Folk Festival (twice), Appel Farm Festival in New Jersey and Full Circle Fair in Maine .....playing with acts that include Wilco, Drive By Truckers, Richard Thompson, The Radiators and Donna The Buffalo.
CABIN DOGS play an original blend of american country roots wrapped in a subtle 70's grooviness which has been compared to classic works of The Band, Grateful Dead and Bob Dylan....with shades of Gillian Welch and Wilco.
Music is my passion and songwriting is my way of expression.
My goal in my lyrics is to speak inspiring truth in a new and unique way that any listener can relate to.
My optimistic mindset is greatly displayed in my music and I hope to bring this joy to anyone who hears it.

Box of Rain is the classic six-piece that pays tribute to the most prolific and finest period of the Grateful Dead: 1968-1974. Featuring an all-star lineup with members of Dark Star Orchestra, Living Earth and Splintered Sunlight, Box of Rain channels the sound and magic that could have only happened at that special time.
And what a time it was; the Dead were at the height of both their songwriting and improvisational prowess! Featuring an extended Pig Pen presence, one very swingin' drummer and the most coherent and visceral space and improvisations, the typical 5-6 hour GD performances were legendary and a trip for sure.
Box of Rain is a true labor of love with Bob Stirner ( Living Earth / Boris Garcia ) on lead guitar, Skip Vangeles ( Dark Star Orchestra / Border Legion ) on bass, Mike Kennedy ( Living Earth / Splintered Sunlight ) on guitar, Sean Kelly ( Living Earth / Whirled Blue ) on harp and Pig Pen vocals, Mike Borowski ( Living Earth / Splintered Sunlight / Dirk Quinn Band) on keys and Jim Monia ( Border Legion ) on drums.
With classic rock overtones, lush vocal harmonies and psychedelic riffs The Late Ancients combine elements of folk, rock and blues to create their own melting pot of musical intoxication.
Through danceable grooves, improvisational jams, and unique song-writing this Philadelphia-based quintet leaves no stone unturned as they seek to bring a good time to all.
Their high-energy live show is sure to draw in music lovers of all ages.
Skip's Museum is growing a dedicated fan base with their refined, eclectic sound.
From classical and jazz to funk, country and rock and roll, the bands members draw inspiration from a myriad of musicians that came before them.
While tipping their hat to the past, they are constantly striving to push their music into unchartered waters.
A balanced blend of melody and vocal harmony truly give them an original, organic sound.
The Karmic Repair Company is a trio, and right away you notice their impressive instrumental chops.
The band is Graham Ford on lead vocals, electric and acoustic guitars, mandolin, harmonica, dobro and cigar box; Eric Worthington on lead vocals, bass, keyboards and melodica; and Todd Zieseniss on drums, percussion and gamelan.
The variety of instruments and buoyant vocals give The Karmic Repair Company a range of musical colors and textures to work with that surpasses the power trio palette---
They're equally adept at bluegrass, reggae, pop-rock, dance-rock, blues, progressive rock, jam-band music...you name it.
