Half - Brothers (Stan Koba and Heshy Moses) have been performing on the Jersey Shore, New York City and Pennsylvania for the past thirty eight years. Their ever-growing and continuous popularity has been attributed to their strong harmonies, crisp guitar work, and professional manner on stage.
Undoubtedly, their strongest asset is the energy they generate throughout the audience with tunes from “classic” artists such as Van Morrison, Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young, The Grateful Dead, The Beatles, The Who, Simon & Garfunkle, Jimmy Buffet, Billy Joel, The Eagles, Led Zeppelin, Elvis Presley, Jackson Browne, Dan Fogelburg, Buddy Holly, and many more. They continue to update their material to please their audiences with the likes of Jack Johnson, John Mayer, Pearl Jam, Black Crows, Tonic, Dave Matthews Band, Oasis, Bare Naked Ladies, Goo-Goo Dolls, Bruce Springsteen, Steely Dan, U-2, REM, Red Hot Chili Peppers, BoDeans, Kenny Chesney, Tracey Chapman, and others.
Living The Dream
Saturday, October 5, 3:30-8:30pm
Living the Dream Band has been in existence for over 2 years. The product of an idea which had been in the making for several years. Initially we started as a Sinatra/Standards Band. Since then, we have evolved to not only include our initial mix of songs, but also an eclectic mix of 60's and 70's tunes as well. We have developed a style all of our own, which makes us different from other bands. In one evening you may hear "One for my Baby" and "You've lost that Lovin' Feelin" along with many others.What also makes us unique, is our personnel of musicians. Gary Patricelli(Vocals), Sue Ellen Miller (Piano and Vocals), Wayne Miller(Bass), Dave McGraw(Drums), and Ron Taglarino(Sax). When we are all together, the creative energy flows! We especially enjoy being in front of an audience, watching the smiles on their faces, as they sing along with favorite tunes from the past.
