It might be nice, but if we're wrong everyone goes home cold and wet, and the grass is wet and we have a minor electrical issue due to wet wires on the lights over the stage. In several ways, we are being guided to hold it indoors tonight.
You'll be seated in a comfortable, air conditioned, low humidity, room with a respectful audience all of whom have great views of the band!
Judson Mantz is one of my favorite singer/songwriters. Not just local singer/songwriters, I'm including all singer songwriters. He's a bright, deep, articulate, feeling individual, and he's generous, too! He has offered some of his songs as free downloads at the August Room music webpage, and has allowed me to offer some of the free songs to you in the list below.
In the mid-to-late 1990s, Judson was part of a band called "3-D Betty." They released 2 CDs, "Belch of the Muses" in 1998 and "The Road Less Traveled" in 2000. Judson has made his contributions to those CDs available to you as free downloads on his website at https://augustroom.com/music.
Three of the original members of 3D Betty will be joining Judson at Moonstock:
Donnie has played in multiple bands in State College for years, including Soul Gypsies and Cliff Turner and the After Burners. Chris has played with Code Blue, The Earthtones, Archie Blue and most recently with Andy Tolins and Richard Sleigh. Lynn has played bass with August Room and Mantz, Chapin and Crane. Also joining them will be Jason Crane on saxophone and percussion.

Our home at 211 Moondance Lane is only about 15 minutes from downtown State Don't be misled by the Port Matilda address.
For guests with mobility issues, we can reserve parking. We have modified the road down to the stage, so on nights with outdoor concerts we can allow a few cars to drive down, drop passengers, and park on the edge of the woods. Call Kyle at 814-404-1313 to make arrangements for people with mobility issues.
Can't beat an outdoor concert on a rain-free summer evening.
There are three homes on Moondance Lane, and Google hasn't figured us out quite yet. Our home is the one AT THE TOP OF THE HILL, so as you drive up Moondance Lane, take the uphill path at each of the two forks. (That's right at the first fork, then left at the second fork.)
If you get lost, call Kyle's cell phone number, 814-404-1313, and hope he can hear you over the music. (-:
