Suzanne Ludwig is incredibly talented on electric violin and guitar. She is currently the fiddler in Chapel Street Junction and The Cole Younger Band. Suzanne has played with Club Phred. She is an instructor at The School of Rock. In August of 2012, Michele MCann, of Mythica joined NSA to play gigs at Hartefelt, DiPalos, and The Queen in Wilmington. Michele is like the clowns, that keep coming out of the little VW Bug — pulling out a new instrument every per4formance. But her most unique is the Hurdy Gurdy and the Bodhran. Michael is adored by Club Phred! She is also a DJ on WVUD.
   Chesapeake Inn will never be the same — A Mummer present said NSA was "wicked sexy!" as they dressed in Irish outfits learned 24 new songs and played St. Patricks Day. What talent!!! See NO STRINGZ ATTACHED perform Salty Dog on YouTube. Recently playing at Twin Lakes brewery the band received a standing ovation! Augie Parodi played drums with you guessed it — Club Phred! Augie is versatile on the keys, guitar and the bass. At Designer Consigner with Miss Teen Delaware 2012 who signed "NO STRINGZ ATTACHED is Awesome"! Tom Noone of Newark is one of the best drumming talents. After all with a last name like Ludwig — Suzanne knows! Tom also played with Club Phred, but currently he is much in demand with his bands — Green Eggs and Jam and Tony Travalini!

Sin City
WEBSITE  

ABOUT THE ARTISTS
Thursday, August 8th, 1974. President Richard M. Nixon resigns, and The Sin City Band played their very first show kicking off a 3 day run at Dimitris' Restaurant on old rt.9 between Henniker and Hillsboro, New Hampshire. After the ex-pres signed off, SCB signed on with The Eagles "Take It Easy" (2nd song was "White Line Fever" by Merle Haggard...). Moving to The Brandywine Valley in August, 1975, SCB has played from The Grand Opera House to The Grand Bahamas... from the Rocky Mountains to the Hills of Kennett Square (hello Barnwood Tavern!). Playing all the many American genres (with their original, beloved "country-rock" leading the way), and with the usual shifts in personnel, the core remains founder Scott Birney, David Berry (1975), and Steve Hobson (1976). Jim Ficca joined in 1985 and Alan Berdoulay first sat in around the turn of the century. The fellas feel that there is no better place to kick off their 40th anniversary summer than at The Kennett Flash. As with any Sin City show, expect the unexpected with special guests and a musical grab-bag of original songs and favorite standards. Here's to the next 40!

ABOUT THE ARTISTS
Kategory 5 is a powerhouse collaboration of some of the area's most experienced musicians.  Covering a wide range of genres, their goal is to provide a full course feast for the ears. 

Kat Pigliacampi(lead and backing vocals and keyboards), originally from Delaware has been a Chadds Ford resident for 12 yrs.  Singing since she could walk, she has performed in venues large and small from Washington, DC to NYC.  One of her most memorable experiences was singing with Jeff "Skunk" Baxter of The Doobie Brothers and Steely Dan, and Nils Lofgren of Bruce Springsteen's E-Street Band on the guitars at the FBI Band's USO Benefit at the Hard Rock Café in Washington, DC.  A veteran Shine A Light musician, she has enjoyed playing to sold out shows three years in a row at the Queen in Wilmington.  As the Kat-5 guys like to say "Kat loves everything".  She feels that best part of performing is the connection between musicians when you are locked into a groove and it sounds amazing.

John Cassidy (lead and backing vocals, guitar, keyboards) was born a musical virtuoso.  A Delaware native, he has been active in local music since 1981 as a performer, writer, and visionary.  He has mastered all band instruments, having played drums originally in the Pink Floyd Tribute band 'Echoes'.  John, Kyle and Al were all in the band 13th floor   John is a gifted composer as well as the band musical director.  John and Kyle are the owners of Crazy Diamond Recording Studio in Newark, DE.

"ANGELO M. MADE OUR JAWS DROP When He Sat Down & Blistered the Frets..." - Acoustic Live
After a mill bankruptcy cost him his pension, Angelo M. (short for Melasecca) made the unlikely transition from steelworker to touring artist. With a Rootsy, Bluesy sound n Witty sense of humor Angelo M.'s a favorite at festivals & listening rooms: reviews hail him, "a Brilliant Guitarist" with "an Excellent Voice", and audiences from NY to CA have honored him with standing ovations. It's no surprise with influences like Chet Atkins, Ry Cooder, Duane Allman, & Leo Kottke that Angelo M.'s a Master finger style & slide guitarist/Dobro player, but there's more than just guitar hero flash here… Angelo M.'s a multi-award winning songwriter holding honors from the Prestigious Mountain Stage NewSong Contest; Billboard's World Song Contest n more. He's a humble, hardworking man who spent decades in a PA steel mill, but there's nothing understated about the talent of this bluesy virtuoso player and award winning writer; armed with a six string, Dobro & harp, he's down n dirty, no holds barred – an authentic link in the American Roots chain as a singer, player & writer.

Steve Forbert
WEBSITE  

ABOUT THE ARTIST
As a young man from Meridian, Mississippi, Steve Forbert traveled to New York City and played guitar for spare change in Grand Central Station. He vaulted to international prominence with a folk-rock hit, “Romeo's Tune,” during a time when rootsy rock was fading out and the Ramones, Talking Heads and other New Wave and punk acts were moving in to the public consciousness. Still, critics raved about Steve's poetic lyrics and engaging melodies, and the crowds at CBGB's club in New York accepted him alongside those acts. “I've never been interested in changing what I do to fit emerging trends,” Forbert observes. “Looking back on it, I was helping to keep a particular American songwriting tradition alive at a time when it wasn't in the spotlight.”

After his first two records came a plethora of well-crafted, unforgettable songs on such albums as Little Stevie Orbit, Streets of This Town, The American in Me, Mission of the Crossroad Palms and Evergreen Boy. His tribute to Jimmie Rodgers, Any Old Time, was nominated for a Grammy Award in 2004. In October 2012, 35 years after his first album, Steve has released an exciting new one, Over With You. Its ten fresh but mature songs pinpoint a wide range of emotions that color personal relationships — emotions that most listeners have undoubtedly felt and struggled to understand at some point in their lives. “This is an album that has taken a lifetime to make,” explains Forbert. “You don't just pull these songs out of thin air — you have to live them.”
