Quinn was initially attracted to the guitar as a teenager after being introduced to classic rock giants such as Led Zeppelin and The Beatles. Refining his artistic message coupled with a fresh, new outlook and a deeper musical/life philosophy opened up to him the world of jazz.
Surrounding himself with a group of extremely talented and like-minded musicians, Quinn has been playing shows across North America while receiving an ever increasing amount of media attention. His music has now been featured on over 100+ radio stations worldwide and gets regular airplay in his hometown of Philadelphia.
Notable spins include the "Pick of the Day" on WXPN in Philadelphia as well as on the nationally syndicated "Keller's Cellar" broadcast hosted by Keller Williams.
The band’s infectious energy and musical interplay routinely attract listeners that are admittedly more accustomed to lyric-based music. With great melodic sensibilities, rhythmic experimentation and an accessible modern edge, the Dirk Quinn Band is jazz/funk improvisation at its most exciting!
Universal Funk Order draws inspiration from all areas of the musical spectrum in their quest to stimulate your mind while taking control of your body. Featuring an incredibly tight rhythm section, an energy driven horn section and passionate vocals, this band's live show and recorded works are something to be reckoned with! With over 5 years of live performances under their belt and 30 years of music schooling between them, UFO has quietly built up a reputation of putting on a spectacular live show around the mid-atlantic region.
"I instantly knew their sound was invigorating and fresh." Chris M. Peters, Assistant Producer, MTV (New York)
LCB focuses on playing original music with a reasonable amount of covers thrown into the mix to pay tribute to their inspirations. The band always plays with feeling and improvisation… you’ll never hear a song played the same way twice.

In their relatively short time together, the band has shared the stage with the likes of bluegrass giants such as The Seldom Scene, The Lonesome River Band, Dailey and Vincent, The Boxcars, and many other stellar bands in the world of bluegrass. They have worked very hard to write, find, and sharpen a wide array of material that showcases the instrumental prowess of their players and the respected harmonic talents of their vocalists.
From multi-day weekend bluegrass festivals to intimate, yet down-to-earth weddings and everything else in-between, Flatland Drive is available to bring its talents and musical repertoire to nearly any occasion. The band hopes to see you in its musical journey sometime or many times throughout this year's playing season.

Touring together since 2008, Miller & Cerulli (veterans of the singer-songwriter circuit), will make you feel like every aspect of their journey is in Real-Time. Creating a sound all of their own, Mama’s Black Sheep is driven by Miller’s versatile guitar grooves, Cerulli’s innovative percussion, and two voices that blend like honey & whiskey in perfect harmonious balance. These ladies rock to their own beat, sharing songs of life and love, and empowering the listener to live boldly beyond the barriers.
Ashland and Laura, produce magical tapestries of songs, weaving energetic color and rich texture to create an infectious and lively conversation between guitar and percussion. Miller’s passionate voice will make you laugh, cry, feel inspired, and ultimately, desire more. Bob Steel of “Baltimore Out Loud” writes “Cerulli opens her mouth and the world stands still as she wrings every drop of emotion out of the lyrics with her powerful, soaring voice, forged in the fires of the blues and tempered in the cool technique of her classical training.”
This thought-provoking duo will tantalize your aural appetite, regardless of your musical taste buds, with a diverse blend of blues, soul, country, pop, and more by unapologetically dipping into the well of all music genres. It’s called soulful, poetic storytelling with an irresistible groove.
Recording in numerous settings such as venues, living rooms, a recording studio with an live audience, in an old church, etc...these volumes will capture the spontaneous energy, soul-felt vibes and musical adventures that Christine brings to the stage, ANY stage! Havrilla, who has seven studio albums, five EPs, and over 15 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.
Gypsy Fuzz/“Searching. Finding. Living.”, 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."
Christine is known for bringing her “well-built, catchy, smart tunes” (Upstage Magazine) to audiences everywhere, touring nationally as a solo act as well as with Gypsy Fuzz. After an inspirational time of being based in Portland, OR, Christine is once again back in the Philly area and frequenting such venues as Tin Angel, World Café Live, Steel City, Godfrey Daniels, Jammin’ Java, Burlap and Bean, Triumph Brewing Company, Rockwood Music Hall, Club Passim, to name a few.
Michael McKenna at Steel Notes Magazine shares:
“This ambitious Philly native manifests her talent in certain ways that allows her to create eclectic music which will grab your heart and leave a lasting memory. Her Roots/Folk/Americana background coupled with that unique individuality that she possesses allows her to be a presence that steps into many genres and gives her the tools to crossover to different music formats. This album (Vol. 2 The Sunset Sessions) just defies description. It’s hot, tight, precise, and just plain kick-ass. If I was still programming radio, I’d be all over this! My recommendation is to go hear the band live, buy the CD, and experience what I have just heard. I give this TWO THUMBS UP!”
We've played on stages from Delaware to California and many places in between, from small intimate venues like The Tin Angel (Philadelphia) to festivals like Wilmo Rock Circus (Delaware), Burning Man (Nevada), and SXSW (Austin). We've been known to rock a house concert, too!
In March of 2013, we were absolutely thrilled (and floored) to win two 2012 Homey Awards; one for BEST EP for our self-produced and self-titled EP ("Hot Breakfast!"), and for BEST LEAD SINGER (for Jill Knapp's larynx and Matt's ability to write songs in comfortable keys), and in 2014 we brought home two more: BEST SONGWRITER (for Matt's madd skillz) and BEST COLLABORATION (for "This is Our Hit Song" - a satirical techno song we did with our hero and pal Todd Chappelle).
We are neither the defunct band from Vancouver BC, the college cover band from Massachusetts nor the morning radio shows in Australia and Uganda. We are Delaware's PREMIER acoustic dork-rock power duo. Some have even called us acoustic punk. Either way, we're just happy to get to do what we love for our fist-pumping fans.
Scrapple was formed in 1995 in the Lewes area and had a few member changes before forming as the current 3 piece powerhouse in 1999. A local Scrapple truck passing the group spawned the name. Playing all over the area from PA to MD to VA and their home state of DE, they have shared the stage with Peter Frampton, Kix, Buck Cherry, 38 Special, The Charlie Daniels Band(odd one there!) and many others, big & small. Scrapple pride themselves on playing to have a good time and make sure everyone at their shows does too!
