Brukay sings the hits of a variety of artists, from Elvis to Dion, Roy Orbison and Frank Sinatra, as well as the great oldies and doo wop groups including the Drifters, Platters, Duprees and Jay and the Americans.

Sunday, August 11
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.

The Blue Vipers of Brooklyn
An early jazz, swing, and blues band, composed of acoustic guitar/vocals, upright bass, homemade washboard percussion, trumpet and saxophone. Their repertoire of witty songs from 1920's and 30's is augmented by original tunes with moving yet often bawdy lyrics and catchy 4 part vocal harmony.

The Matt O'Ree Band
Matt O'Ree has been cranking out the blues-rock since he was an early teen. With all the trappings of a genuine guitar hero, he plays with fire in his fingers and blues in his soul. Matt has the blues so bad he’s good!  Matt O'Ree's quartet band will hold little back showing that a mix of attitude and high decibels will feature old-fashioned stagecraft.  Since 2008, the band has been privileged to have worked with special guest stars who contributed to their recent album releases including Steve Cropper, John Popper, Bernie Worrell, and Hubert Sumlin.
