JOE JANCI – JANUARY 5, 2019

 

Jersey native Joe Janci is one of a select breed of singer/songwriters to emerge from the fertile music scene of the great Northeast.  Inspired by The Beatles, WABC Radio in NYC, and his NJ neighbors, Joe was off and running with his dream to make music, be in a band, and impress girls.  Indeed, there was lots of musical inspiration to be found in those wonderful Sixties. Songwriting bloomed during the 70’s and 80’s and along with Joe’s younger brother Jack the two started to focus on their talents via several notable bands such as Pure Spirits. Eventually the Janci brothers became an acoustic duo. Musical contacts in the NYC Region, as well as, Los Angeles and Nashville brought great experience and knowledge to their craft.

 

Doors open at 7:30.  Refreshments, including coffee, soft drinks, and desserts are all on the house.  There is no cover charge but donations are appreciated.  The Acoustic Cafe is held in the Community House, right in the heart of Pottersville, at 2091 Black River Road (directly across from the Pottersville Church).  You can check out the Acoustic Cafe on our website at www.pottersvillechurch.com or email pottersvillechurch2090@gmail.com for more information on their community events and weekly worship services.

His poignant wit and infectious melodies are staples of his canon of memorable story songs drawn from everyday theater of life moments. Raised in the Raritan Valley of central New Jersey, he spent years playing trumpet for school marching band before discovering the acoustic guitar and songwriting in his late teens.

Finding his instrument, he quickly found his network and graduated from Rowan University with a music education degree while trading notes, swapping songs and gigging with rising folk singers of the time, Antje Duvekot, Jackie Tice and Gregg Cagno, among others. He was an invited participant on the songwriting compilation, Southside Sunday Nights, Vol. 1, which included John Gorka, the preeminent songwriter of that time.

KATE VARGAS / FEBRUARY 3RD

 

“When you hear Kate Vargas sing, you don’t forget it. Her smoky, heartfelt vocals make an immediate impression.” – Justin Remus, Groundsounds

Vargas has been called an Americana outlaw, a clever and curious songwriter, with tales and truths weaving through a delightful blend of folk, blues, and country by way of an undeniably unique voice. Born and raised in New Mexico, southwestern culture and storytelling traditions inspire many of her lyrical themes. Elmore Magazine calls Kate “an unapologetic badass” & “a dynamic addition to any musicians-to-watch list”, while The Huffington Post raves, she “connects with the music on an emotional level that will take listeners on a wild ride and back.” The talented singer-songwriter has charmed audiences, both nationally and internationally, with a sound that, The Deli Magazine insists, is “like the sound of a favorite bourbon come to life.”

Refreshments, including coffee, soft drinks, and desserts are all on the house.  There is no cover charge but donations are appreciated.
