extraordinary talents of 60's and 70's, namely with Bugsy Maugh of The Paul Butterfield Blues
Band, and he shared the stage with such giants as Janis Joplin and Frank Zappa.

Four of the six members are featured as song-writers on the new release, and there's a wide
range of musical tastes evident on the CD. Whether you're a blues purist or love the funk, it's
all here for you.

Deb Callahan and Christine Havrilla

Philadelphia's blues and soul drenched vocalist and songwriter Deb Callahan grew up in the Boston area but has been a mainstay on the mid-Atlantic music scene since the late 90′s. During this time she has gained a reputation for writing creative blues, soul and roots influenced original music and using her powerful, expressive voice and engaging stage presence to deliver an exciting live show.

Her 2002 debut CD "If the Blues Had Wings" was featured as the hot debut in the October/November 2004 issue of Blues Revue Magazine. Blues Revue referred to her as the next Bonnie Raitt and raved "Philly's Deb Callahan has the pipes, the songs and the raw talent to graduate to the next level". Her fourth and most recent CD, entitled "Tell It Like It Is" was released in October 2010 which debuted at #19 on the Living Blues Radio Chart and received regular airplay on the XM/Sirius Bluesville radio channel as well as blues and Triple A radio stations around the country.

The songs are blues based with gospel, soul, rock and jazz influences and deal with a range of topics and issues such as experiencing love and joy, finding spirituality, giving voice to the experience of homeless children without family support and how hard it can be to make life changes. Doing social work in the heart of Philadelphia would be a good place to learn about life's hard knocks and this urban school ground taught singer/songwriter Deb Callahan well. Her rich, honest and soulful tunes resonate with listeners and run the gamut from soulful ballads, to upbeat, dance oriented grooves.

Her road tested band includes Allen James, Garry Lee and Tom Walling. Deb is working on her 5th CD which she is hoping to release sometime in 2014.





Christine Havrilla

CHRISTINE HAVRILLA & GYPSY FUZZ

Philadelphia area native Christine Havrilla, after embarking on an ambitious new journey with her Gypsy Fuzz project in late 2011, is releasing a series of "Live Sessions" in 2014 which will include long-time fan favorites as well as new songs with her current band, Gypsy Fuzz. Recording in numerous settings such as live shows, living rooms, a recording studio with an live audience, in an old church, etc... these volumes will capture the spontaneous energy and musical adventures that Christine brings to the stage, ANY stage! Havrilla, who has six studio albums, four EPs, and over a dozen years of touring under her belt, continues to venture out under "Christine Havrilla & Gypsy Fuzz" as well as a solo artist, showcasing ALL of her music with new twists. "Searching. Finding. Living.", the darker & electric guitar-based debut release from Gypsy Fuzz, produced by Larry Crane (Cat Power, Sleater-Kinney, Elliott Smith) and Christine, is described as "a blend of 70's, 80's, and 90's rock delivered by the modern singer/songwriter."

Mark Rogers at 93.7 WSTW raves, "With Gypsy Fuzz (the album and the band), Christine takes especially that rock element and turns it to 11. Gypsy Fuzz fuses fantastic guitar work with Christine's vocals, which can reach down inside and grab your heart. A very diverse album, showing elements of rock, blues and even country, among others, Gypsy Fuzz continues Christine's string of fantastic albums. Buy it."

21st Century Troubadours Special Presentation: Don Henry, Craig Bickhardt and Buddy Mondlock with Host J.D Malone

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.

Don Henry

Grammy Award winner Don Henry's songs have been recorded by legends like: Ray Charles, Patti Page and Conway Twitty
By country crooners like:Gene Watson, John Conlee and B.J. Thomas
By young hit makers of today like:Blake Shelton, Lonestar and Miranda Lambert ....
.....and the list goes on.

2014 Song of the Year " All Kinds of Kinds" recorded by Miranda Lambert

The wit and wisdom of Don's songs are widely renowned whether it's campfire favorites, the hilarious "B.F.D." and biker lullaby "Harley", to the wonderfully poignant tribute to Martin Luther King "Beautiful Fool", and of course his Grammy Award winning country classic "Where've You Been".
In addition to a Grammy, Kathy Mattea's version of "Where've You Been" won Don (and co-writer Jon Vezner) song of the year honors from ACM (Academy of Country Music), CMA (Country Music Association) and NSAI (Nashville Songwriters Association International).
"Where've You Been" was the first song in country music history to be awarded all four honors in the same year!

Craig Bickhardt

Craig Bickhardt's songs have been recorded by over 150 artists world wide including Ray Charles, Johnny Cash, B. B. King, Alison Krauss and Kathy Mattea.

His songs appear in three films including Academy Award winner TENDER MERCIES, SWITCHBACK and AT CLOSE RANGE, as well as the TV shows Hidden Palms, Wildfire, and Huff.

He has received nine ASCAP Awards and four R.I.A.A. Platinum Album Awards for his songs, which include four #1 hits and 15 Billboard charting singles.

Buddy Mondlock

Buddy Mondlock writes songs. He does it so well that some great songwriters have recorded his songs on their own albums. Guy Clark, Nanci Griffith and Janis Ian, to name just a few. But theres nothing like hearing the guy who wrote em sing em. Hes not going to pin your ears back with those songs. Hes going to draw you into his world. Where a single snowflake follows the trajectory of a relationship, where you get your pocket picked by a Roman cat, where you might swim over the edge of the world if youre not careful and where dreams that dont come true still count. And it can all be happening in a little folk club or on a stage by a grassy hill or in someones living room or in the Royal Albert Hall.

His new album, The Edge of the World, is his most personal recording to date. The song cycle is an introspective journey from childhood through to the disintegration of a marriage and beyond. And while always a wry observer of the social interactions of human beings, the song Big Fish, Shallow Water takes on a political edge as well. Buddy did most of the playing and singing himself, with a little help from longtime friend, bassist Mike Lindauer. Then co-producer Jim Tullio added just the right sonic touches of percussion and atmospheric guitar to glue it all together.

Sammy Flow

With the release of his Debut Album in March, Sammy Flow's fan base has exploded into regions spanning across the globe. This year, opening for national acts, Robert Randolph and The Family Band, and for super-group "ASIA" on September 26th, Flow was a top-five finalist in SingerUniverse Magazine, Best Vocalist Contest, and will be performing at the 2014 TCS New York City Marathon (the worlds largest) on November 2nd.


"Sammy Flow hails from the westernmost section of Hunterdon County, in Flemington, NJ. With a style that falls somewhere between contemporary pop and jazz-infused R&B, Flow is a unique contender for brave new sound. In a state filled with Americana cowboys and Bob Dylan hipsters, Flow's dedication to soulful rhythm and blues is a welcome and exciting break. [His] understanding of style and delivery are highly attuned, and I'm not surprised that co-writers of Marolda's caliber are working with him." John Pfieffer, Music Columnist, The Aquarian Weekly (9/3/14)


Sammy Flow is currently co-writing/co-producing on special projects for Film/TV with gold and platinum record producer, Tommy Marolda, who says of Flow, "Sammy is amazing! What a joy to work with someone this talented." Marolda is well known for his work on The Expendables, the Rocky franchise, and with musical aficionados The Killers, Rod Stewart, Cher and Richie Sambora (Bon Jovi), to name a few.


Flow organized his first band at age 12, which as a young songwriter, evolved into his first original rock band, Even The Odds, playing school events and teen venues, reaching all the way to NYC's Bitter End in Greenwich Village by sophomore year. Even The Odds quickly became Flow's first platform by which people began to take note of his extraordinary abilities, not just as a singer, but also as a talented songwriter.


After graduation, he moved into the popular world of hip-hop, growing his fan base and producing four albums. He had fun with the genre for about five years, sometimes setting-up stage on top of a roof at a big house party, but mostly performing at colleges and universities in the Northeast before moving forward, developing his current contemporary style. As he says about those days, "That's how I got the name 'Sammy Flow.' My real name is Sam Mohl."


Flow currently performs with his band of stellar musicians, Kevin Bene, Sax; Dan Jefferson, Drums; Barry Cary, Bass Guitar.


Sammy Flow's album is currently in rotation on Pandora Radio and available to download on iTunes, Spotify, Amazon, and with numerous other digital distributors.
You can listen to Sammy Flow's music or watch live videos of him performing at www.sammyflow.co (not.com). Stay current with upcoming shows and the latest on his 12-song album, which is scheduled to release at "Winterfest 2015" You can follow Sammy Flow on Twitter @SammyFlowtown and by liking him on Facebook at www.facebook.com/SammyFlow/NJ

De Tierra Caliente

After four years touring Argentina, Brazil and Colombia as bassist in several Latin bands, Bronson Tennis returned to Philadelphia to form his own band. De Tierra Caliente: a fusion of Brazilian, Caribbean and American rhythms with catchy melodies and unaffected lyrics. While traveling and learning the languages of Caribbean and Brazilian musicians, Bronson began to mix his American roots with Afro-Latino rhythms to inspire an undeniably fun North/South American dance party.

De Tierra Caliente bridges Philadelphia's boricua (Puerto Rican) and gringo communities, as Bronson is joined by Puerto Rican percussionist and Philly Salsa icon, Edwin "Papo Buda" Rosado, who for decades has performed with local groups such as the Latin Playboys and Saboricua and has appeared with the world-renowned Gran Combo de Puerto Rico. Papo and his red-headed gringo apprentice Tim Leslie are an unlikely duo of bearded percussionists, laying down powerful Latin grooves that make it impossible to stay in your seat.


De Tierra Caliente delivers the sabor, spice and alegría of warm-weather Latin American countries to audiences in the northeastern US, where formidable winters and nose-to-the-grindstone work ethic sometimes overshadow simple pleasures like sharing a meal with friends or going out dancing. At a De Tierra Caliente show, you can't help but warm up as intoxicating songs in Spanish, English and Portuguese sing out the bright colors and familial heat of a South American kitchen.
