The Weather for Saturday...

Too risky! We're going to be indoors.

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.

The good news is...

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 and Remnants of Betty - August 18

About Judson

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.

About Remnants of Betty

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 Rhoades on drums
  • Chris Younken on guitar, and
  • Lynn Chaplin on bass.

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.

About Our Concerts

Phot of people sitting on a fied watching a concert on the outdoor stage.

Come Join Us!

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.

  • If it doesn’t look like rain, consider bringing a folding chair or blanket (optional), wear comfortable shoes, and be prepared to walk a bit, as the driveway gets crowded and the concerts are held in a field behind the house which is on a hilltop.

Hosts

Kyle Peck & Catherine Augustine

Please Note: GPS only takes you half way up the driveway!

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.  (-:

  • TURN RIGHT ON STEVENSON ROAD, which is almost at the bottom of the hill.
  • Take Stevenson Road, through the tiny community of "Waddle," until it ends in a "T" intersection with "Buffalo Run Road" (also known as route 550).
  • TURN RIGHT ON BUFFALO RUN ROAD (RTE 550).
    The first intersection will be Lower Julian Pike.
  • TURN RIGHT ON LOWER JULIAN PIKE.

    The road branches twice.
    - Go right at the first fork
    - Go left at the second. (We're at the top of the hill.)
