We are very pleased to extend our concert series, past summer, for one more concert, featuring local band, "Half Dead."
Half Dead is a local band that plays Grateful Dead, Allman Brothers, and other psychedelic and jam band music.
Half Dead started in 2018 with Zach Paulsen on guitar, Alex Bralower on guitar, Adam Kurtz on drums and guitar, and Gabe Hernandez on bass and guitar. The band now includes Seth McMahon on guitar and Sacha Cooper on vocals.
Half Dead began as a group of friends that would get together to jam. They love the Grateful Dead and the creativity of the style of music that is "the jam band.” They enjoy just being able to have fun and not be confined to the notes on the page.
While some members of the band are still in High School, Seth will be entering into the electrical engineering field to further his work in music by working hands-on on music equipment, and Adam is attending Penn State. Zach will be leaving in late October for Basic Training for the Air Force, so come out to support the band.
Our home at 211 Moondance Lane is only about 15 minutes from downtown State College. 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.
For this one last concert, we'll move the concert to Sunday, if weather for Saturday looks bad. If it turns out to be also bad on Sunday, we'll probably hold the concert indoors. COME ANYWAY! We often move the concerts indoors. Same great music and beverages, great acoustics, same fun people, and seating for about 50 people (and, there's no need to bring your chair or blanket for indoor concerts.)
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. (-:
