The York County Music Scene
January 1, 2012
From Groove Jones Hand Percussionist, Louis "Mudgy" Woodyard Jr.
"York City and York County is blessed with many great musicians in all genres of music. We know about THE Rod Goelz creation of GROOVE JONES and Yvon Nicolas Tatafasa musical child B-TROPICAL but we have the Americana sounds of Michael S. Males and Jeff Hostetter in AMERICAN HOLLAR, cigar box sounds of Shane Speal, the soft relaxing music of Megan Woodland Donley in MEGAN AND THE WHEELMEN the revised Sax sounds of Memphis in THE BEAVER STREET BAND, the soulful mind provoking music of Marvin Collier with his SOUL EVOLUTION, and even though they are not from York County there is the music of Zig Zag and his family in BLACKHAND There are many more individual artist and bands that I have not mention. Feel free to post your act and comments. Embrace culture and support local musicianship!"
