Harry Hepcat

By 1955, Harry "got the rock & roll bug". His first guitar came in early 1956. By 1958, Harry Hepcat was already performing with bands and recording. Evolving with the music current in the 1960s, Harry always included fifties material in his act. In 1967, he decided to devote himself solely to fifties rock and roll. He's been recording and performing ever since.

Harry Hepcat performed for the original Broadway cast of "Grease". The fifties actors stated, "Hepcat's great! He's New York's best kept secret. We only act it; it's such a pleasure to hear the real thing".

Here then is the real thing, from fifties rock-a-billy classics to original Hepcat compositions like, "Sunrise Special", a tribute to the rise of Sun records and its artists.

Bill Nolan, Connecticut disc jockey and founder of the Rhythm and Blues/Rock & Roll Society, said it all, "Jerry Lee Lewis couldn't do "Great Balls of Fire" better than Harry Hepcat....Harry Hepcat isn't an imitator, he is an original rock and roller from the 1950s.

Mad Tea Party
Asheville’s innovative folk group the Mad Tea Party performs original songs as well as novelty jazz and old-time music from the ’20s and ’30s. In the course of a performance they will sing and play ukulele, banjo, guitar, mandolin, tenor banjo, fiddle, kazoo, slide whistle, horns, bells, whistles, and more! Their material ranges from silly to sincere. And their delivery is delightfully refreshing. As one reviewer put it, “Perhaps the most meaningful thing I can say about the show is this: It’s a rare night when I can walk out of a bar at 2 AM and feel a little more innocent than when I came in” (Steve Shanafelt, Mountain Xpress). They will make you laugh and make you think, and they will most certainly entertain you.

The Polyjesters

This question has been asked since the beginning of the PJ's and may well be asked until they die. It is a very difficult question to answer as they play all kinds of music and usually end up mixing them all together. Sometimes they will even go as far as each member playing a different song or style all together at the same time.

But for now, we will call their music 'Chunk' music which can be described as a mixture of swing, folk, and roots music. Now you may be asking yourself, "Well, what the heck is roots music man?", and that's where we can clarify things for you. 'Roots' is more or less a word created for those who are still living in the past and refuse to listen to that new hippidy hoppidy music. It contains music such as old jazz, tin pan alley songs, old country, bluegrass, and ragtime.

Now, of course the PJ's write their own music which is a mixture of all of these styles and thus we bring you: CHUNK!
