About Us:

Steve Mattis and Split Image have been rocking clubs, fairs, festivals, weddings, and other venues in the tri-state area for decades. Our genre of music consists of Country, Rock, Classic Rock, Oldies, and Blues. We can taylor a show to any and all audiences. Once you take in a performance, you'll understand why they book their shows many months in advance. The band consists of five members. Steve Mattis plays lead guitar and is the lead male vocalist. As front man in this band, his performance will get you entertained right from the start. Amy is our lead female vocalist and also plays the keyboards. Once you hear her sing, you'll understand why she has been performing for years. She was born to perform on stage. Darin is our bassist and also sings harmony vocals. His style on bass guitar is 2nd to none. Him and his bass will leave you tapping along with the beat to all songs. Mel, our lead guitar player has a style you won't believe. His licks are very melodic and range from chickin pickin to rock guitar of the 70's and 80's. You won't want to miss his playing ability. Ron wraps up our line up on the drums. He has been playing drums since being a young man. His excitement behind his kit will keep you focused on him during the show. We find that we have tremendous flexibility when it comes to song choices. Having a male and female lead singer gives us diversity over many bands that don't take advantage of this opportunity.

About Us:

Founded in 1992, "Smokin Joe" set out to be a band that brought the hot new country music of the nineties to central Pennsylvania. The bands driving motive was to create a show that would blow people away. Anyone who saw the band perform would tell you that they accomplished what they set out to do. Performing, primarily in clubs and taverns, in the early years, the band attracted a loyal following. Over the years, the band has evolved into a new band, and has moved the show out of the clubs, and onto the fair and festival circuit. Smokin' Joe has been North Central Pennsylvania's hottest country act and has carried that distinction into the new millennium. "The Wild Horse Band" provides hard driving "smokin" country music ."Smokin Joe" and The Wild Horse Band have opened for country music stars, Charlie Daniels, Ty England, Daryl Singeltary, and Ken Mellons to name a few. The band specializes in the music of Garth Brooks, The man who has defined country music of the nineties. Talented lead singer, Joe Meholick, does an exceptional job on songs by Alan Jackson, John Michael Montgomery, Dwight Yoakum, and Montgomery Gentry. These guys are not new comers. In addition to Joe's 31 years of experience, the band adds a combined total of 172 years of musical experience!

About Us:

The Rusty Gun Revival has stepped back in time, back to the time of honky tonk and juke joint music. Our goal is to put on a show of pure character bearing excellent music and musicianship. Our live show is a ?high energy?, highly engaged performance that wins fans everywhere we go. We play songs that music lovers and club owners can?t get enough of. If you take the influence of Johnny Cash, Hank Sr., early Elvis, Blind Blake, Bob Dylan and Social Distortion and mix it all together, you get the sound of The Rusty Gun Revival. Our appeal reaches to all age groups and all walks of life. We play, write, and live Americana music. To us this means a little bit of blues, honky tonk, folk, bluegrass, rock-a-billy, country, punk all on one stage. We call our blend of music ?Punkry?, a new term to fall under the wings of Americana music.

About Us:

Jerry began his musical pursuits in the late 70's as the bass guitar player for the rock band Ozone that he and his friends Chris Kane and Dan Herman formed as juniors in high school. From that beginning he played with various bands, mostly in the Heavy Metal genre -believe it or not! Though he played in heavy metal bands, Jerry was always country at heart. "I always loved country music", says Jerry. I enjoyed it as I was growing up when my mom and dad played it on the radio. I never told any of my friends that I listened to country because it would have 'ruined' my image as a 'rock star'". He continued, "I did some pretty wild things back then. I wore spandex pants, spiked arm bands, hand cuff belt, etc. I even shot flames out the end of my guitar for some awesome effects".
Jerry's first performance on a country stage came in 1988 at the True Value Country Music Showdown at the Tussey Mountain Ski Resort. Though he had never performed country music in public prior to the show, he placed 3rd in the competition! After the show he was approached by one of the judges, who happened to be a representative from MCA/Nashville records. Jerry was asked to develop some original songs and submit them to MCA for review. Though the opportunity was intriguing, he never pursued it. "I'll never forget the feeling I had when the judge approached me after the show", stated Jerry. "To say I was excited would be an understatement". When asked what happened Jerry explained "I guess it was just timing. I didn't have any contacts in the song writing industry, and I hadn't wrote any of my own songs. As time went on, life just kind of took over and I had to focus on making a living".
Although Jerry was inactive as a performer for the next few years, he never lost his love for music. "I met a musician from State College, Pa. named Tommy Wareham. He turned out to be one of my greatest friends and supporters. He inspired and encouraged me back into music". In October of 2000, Jerry videoed three country songs for the Fast Track To Fame and Sonic Records nationwide talent search competition. He was chosen "most marketable" by the Sonic Records label and offered a professional recording and promotion package. In September of 2001, Jerry made the trip to Winston-Salem, North Carolina and recorded the song "I Wonder If She Thinks Of Me". After the release of the song to radio, Jerry's first recording actually rose to #48 on the nationwide Indie (independent artist) chart! It stayed on the chart for 5 months! "I was so excited about the success of my first release!", Jerry said. "To have a song played on national radio was great, but to have it climb the charts because people wanted to hear it was a dream come true!". Since that initial success, Jerry traveled to Nashville in 2004 after signing with A.M.I. Records and recorded two songs 'It's A Good Thing' and 'If Only'. On January 23, 2006, 'It's A Good Thing' was released on the Lone Pine Records label to over 600 radio stations in the United States, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Japan, and various parts of Europe. 2006 will find Jerry in Nashville once again to record his first full-length CD. He has teamed up with songwriter/producer Tom Paden (Paden Place Music). Jerry comments 'I'm very fired-up about working with Tom. He's a seasoned veteran in the music industry in Nashville, not only as a quality songwriter, but with the skills of a great producer, to help me bring quality music to my fans!'.
Jerry's music career appears to be on an upswing, and with influences like George Strait, Merle Haggard, Steve Wariner, Tracy Byrd, and Brad Paisley, it seems he's now deeply rooted in country music. He formed his current touring band, North Country, in 2005 and played some great venues including the Clearfield County Fair, Relay For Life and Children's Miracle Network benefit shows, and a variety of other concerts. Jerry also became very popular in Canada in 2005, as well as overseas in Australia, New Zealand, and Belgium. He has opened for such acts as the Marshall Tucker Band and Neal McCoy, and is looking forward to hitting the road in 2006, and meeting lots of new people. "I really feel this is the year to make some big things happen", Jerry said. The thing I love the most is meeting new people. I never miss a chance to honor our military veterans. I also enjoy talking with the children at my shows and try to influence them to dream big and not be afraid to chase those dreams!". We're sure you'll be hearing more from Jerry very soon..........
