David Hershey-Webb

David has been singing original Americana music since the 1970s in the cafes and streets of Cambridge, Massachusetts, in NYC at Folk City, the Speakeasy, the Bitter End, the Living Room and The Cutting Room. He’s celebrating the 10th Anniversary of his CD “Welcome to the World” which features Jon Pousette-Dart, Jay Dee Manes (who played on the Byrds Sweethearts of the Rodeo) and Lorenza Ponce (Bon Jovi, Dixie Chicks) and is available on Spotify, Apple Music and other streaming sites. David’s music has been featured on WFUV’s Sunday Breakfast. David was lead singer of the Love Handles from 2001-2004.

Love Handles

The Love Handles are a smokin’ rock-country-blues cover band formed in 2001 by attorneys Sam Himmelstein, Marty Silberman, Brian Mich and David Hershey-Webb. In 2004, deadly diva Felicia Michael became the lead singer and the band performed to ecstatic and often sell-out crowds at the Cutting Room, Lafayette Bar & Grille, The Central Park Bandshell after the Race for the Cure and other venues in Brooklyn and Manhattan for the next ten years.

Blue Yodels

Blue Yodels, featuring lovebirds Bob Brophy and Felicia Michael, have been gracing stages with sweet soulful harmonies for more than ten years, performing regularly in the New Milford, CT area. On top of being first-rate singers and performers, the band has raised thousands of dollars to help end Alzheimer’s. Bob Brophy likes to wear shorts.

Don Lowe has been featured in venues of all types across the tri-state area (NY/CT/NJ) and has opened for national acts such as Tom Rush, The Little River Band, Livingston Taylor, Steve Forbert, Kenny White, Toby Walker, Tim Grimm, Danielle Miraglia, David Jacobs-Strain, Johnny A, and the Dana Fuchs Band among many others. His brand of Americana music explores life with songs that are in turns witty, arcane, sad, and sometimes, downright silly. He was open mic host for the venerable Towne Crier Café for 8 years and is currently the open mic host for Sherman JCC. For 3 fun years, he and friend Steve Kirkman hosted a weekly radio program called Local Heroes. Don’s second CD, Out Here, was released in September 2013 and his first release, Dogs, Clowns, and Belles came out in 2010. His third CD is set for release in November, 2019.
