Pottersville’s Acoustic Café
Saturday, April 1
Musicians in the Round
The Pottersville Community House Acoustic Cafe is hosting another very popular “Musicians in the Round” for April. Instead of having one feature artist for the entire evening, there will be several different artists sharing the stage. Each artist will play for about 30 minutes, performing both original music and cover songs. We have listed the artists below, along with a brief bio, in the order they will perform.
Jon Rocker grew up in central New Jersey during the ’60s and ’70s, immersed in a wide variety of musical styles ranging from classical, jazz, blues, country and both popular and experimental rock. He discovered a love of stringed instruments while in high school and eventually began playing guitar. While attending the University of Oregon, Jon’s music became lovingly focused on mainly traditional styles including country blues, bluegrass, old time, and folk music from around the world.
Charlie Mac sings northern country music, as he calls it. A singer/songwriter whose influences draw from blues, Jazz, Americana, country swing, folk, gospel and old school country to name a few, but don’t expect any radio-friendly “Nashville Pop” from his sets. You’d sooner find an old cowboy torch song in there to be honest. From central jersey since 1965, taking root on the guitar in 1969 at age nine, Charlie is a well-seasoned, moderately masterful guitarist with a casual, smooth, engaging baritone vocal.
Rebekah Stickler provides an amazing violin performance filled with energy and grace. She has been playing the violin for 24 years and is a graduate of the John J. Cali School of Music at Montclair State University. Rebekah has extensive experience playing for various orchestras including the Northern New Jersey Youth Orchestra, the New Jersey Inter-generational Orchestra, and the County College of Morris Orchestra. Rebekah also has a love for teaching students with special needs and giving back to the community by performing at adult nursing homes. It is Rebekah’s pleasure to share her love and joy of music with the community.
As you can see, this is one Acoustic Cafe you will not want to miss. Doors open at 7:30, refreshments including coffee, soft drinks, appetizers and desserts are on the house, no cover charge but donations are appreciated.
