2018 has been a very exciting year for Greg Sover. Greg’s long-awaited EP “Jubilee” was released on January 8th. And the Greg Sover Band competed at the International Blues Challenge in Memphis in January, making it into the semifinals and showing everyone in attendance that the band from up north in Philly sure knows how to play the blues.

“Jubilee” has been getting airplay locally, nationally and internationally and is ranked #2 in The Roots Music Report's Top 50 Blues Rock Album Chart for the Week of February 3. And Greg has three songs from “Jubilee” in The Roots Music Report's Top 50 Blues Rock Song Chart for the Week of February 3: “Emotional” at #1, “As the Years Go Passing By” at #23 and “Jubilee” at #38.

And the great reviews for “Jubilee” have begun:

“Sover’s new E.P. is a follow-up to his awesome 2016 debut, ‘Songs of a Renegade.’ This is an extremely well-played gaggle of tunes, blues and otherwise, a true celebration… Greg Sover is a solid singer, emotional without giving in to histrionics, and he’s a really freakin’ good guitar player… Sover and his guys pack a lot of emotional oomph into the 7 tracks that make up Jubilee. Great songs that really touch you where it counts…”

“The Blues comes in many, many variants and we will each have our favourite format; but the slick voiced singer and red hot guitarist easily straddles the Soulful Rhythm and Blues style that I’ve loved for 40+ years. Think a pumped up George Benson or Robert Cray…”
Ð The Rocking Magpie – January 15, 2018

“Jubilee” is once again produced by Greg Sover Band bassist Garry Lee along with Sover. Sover’s band of Philly heavyweights with extensive resumes also includes guitarist Allen James and drummer Tom Walling. The three are best known as Deb Callahan’s solid backing band.

The Greg Sover Band is looking forward to our debut performance at 118 North and we invite you to join us. You won’t be disappointed!
Scott Pemberton Band
Scott Pemberton Band
Scott is an emerging force on the festival circuit, with his wild approach to the guitar and nimble funky band he is immediately recognizable and undeniably original. He doesn’t use a strap, often plays the guitar like someone would play piano and performs with the uninhibited joy and intensity of someone who recognizes that every time we make music is an honor and a gift.

Pemberton's sound is much like the vibe of his native Portland: freaky, fun and just the right amount of weird. The best way to categorize his music is with the moniker “Timber Rock”. Scott naturally applies his own lens/stamp to the sounds of the Pacific North West, the region he has always called home. The deep jazz, NW rock/grunge, blues roots and the west coast funk. It’s all there, and often all in the same song. Listeners are finding this honest, original and to-the-point music refreshing and fun.

The latest LP “Timber Rock” style has been very well received. He has placed #4 on Billboards Tastemaker Chart, #1 on Portland Pop Charts and has been making waves at clubs and festivals nationwide generating press headlines such as:

"The Bruce Lee of Guitar” - Tahoe Onstage
“A modern day Jimi Hendrix” - Chico Enterprise
“It’s not everyday someone can convey joy while digging deep” - Glide Magazine
“A stand out artist at this year’s High Sierra Music Festival” - Relix Magazine
