Warriors Rock Concert

Sponsored by Levin Furniture and hosted by Larry Richert from KDKA Radio, the concert features Gary Racan and the studio e band. Gary spent 16 years fronting the Vogues, had 14 charted hits and now leads his own acclaimed show band. Gary and his wife, Kim, are very committed to the Wounded Warrior Project: WWP national spokesman Jeremy Feldbusch, who will be honored during the concert, is one of their heroes. Wounded in Iraq, Jeremy has made his life work to help wounded veterans when they return home to the USA. 

Please join Levin Furniture for this performance of the music that inspired, strengthened, and consoled the men and women who have and continue to protect our freedoms!

Hoffman Road Band with Douglas & the Iron Lung

Pittsburgh band Hoffman Road Band formed one warm summer evening around a fire and a yard full of empty cans. Their folk sound adds rock and country, with some reggae and punk thrown in for fun. The band consists of Brandon Sensor on lead guitar, Dave Samuelson on harmonica and bass, Tanya McAndrew on rhythm guitar and washboard, Jason Wright on mandolin and Jerry Tongue on drums.

When asked if lead singer Brandon Sensor's voice sounded like an angel, Dave Samuelson after a little thought replied, "No...more like an angel wiping it's butt with sandpaper."

HRB has performed in Pittsburgh and on the Eastern beaches of Florida, and is currently working on their first album, "1000 Miles to Paydirt".
