Lower Burrell Restaurant Hosts Acoustic Music

This past Friday I took advantage of some time off and spent the evening with my sister listening to some local acoustic music performed by my friends Mike Huston & Jeff Conner. I took some video and snapped a few pictures.

Their act was hosted by a local eatery, Sports Town Pizza & Grill, located in Lower Burrell PA. The restaurant was easy to find with plenty of parking. The establishment is primarily a pizza shop, complete with delivery, and also has a nice sized seating area for eat-in customers. We ordered sandwiches and salads and enjoyed them very much. The service was great, friendly and efficient!

The music started at 6:30. Many genre’s were covered including blues, Beatles, classic rock, country and folk. Mike and Jeff sing both harmony and lead, complimenting each other well on vocals. They are both good guitarists, not just strummers. The music was nice and full for two people. This duo showed up to play! Very enjoyable!

Mike is a huge Beatles fan and they covered a lot of “mop top” material and did it well! I think they could do a Beatles “acoustic show” and keep quite busy!

Mike and Jeff also play in a 3 piece electric band called “The Gruuve” along with drummer David Wells. The Gruuve hosts an open stage every Monday at The Do Drop Inn, Natrona Heights. Besides the open stage, they keep quite busy playing local bars, clubs and festivals.

You can catch me just about every Monday at their open stage playing some guitar as they have kindly adopted me as the 2nd guitar player for Gruuvey Mondays! (You really should come check it out!)
