Jen Cork opens the night, followed by nationally touring Diversion Records Recording Artist Pete Mancini with his band, The Hillside Airmen.
Pete got his start as the frontman and primary songwriter of Butchers Blind, a critically acclaimed rock band from NYC. His debut solo album Foothill Freeway explored the Americana influences that were a hallmark of his work with his former band.
In 2018, he released a live EP, Alive in Patchogue. Since signing with Diversion Records, Mancini has released two singles, Pine Box Derby and DUI Blues. His second full length album is due out in 2019. Mancini’s songs have received glowing reviews and radio airplay around the world, and they continue to win over hearts and minds wherever they are heard.
Over the years, Mancini has opened for acts such as Blues Traveler, Gin Blossoms, Pure Prairie League, Robbie Fulks, James Maddock, Marah, Steve Forbert, Larry Campbell & Theresa Williams, Kevin Gordon, and Iain Matthews.
