There’s still almost a week to go until the 18th Annual Lehigh Valley Music Awards Ceremony takes place at the ArtsQuest Center at SteelStacks, but there is already a buzz in the air.
Last week, we told you about an April 2 comedy night at Bethlehem’s Ice House to benefit local man Eric Gubich, as he embarks on a battle with Ewing’s sarcoma.
Every time we talk to Rod McCoy, it seems like he’s doing even bigger and better things than before. That’s true for the Atlanta-based hip hop artist’s new album, “Khantrydiction,” as well as for his independent record label, Audible Hustle Entertainment. We are honored to have Rod join us on today’s show.
It’s one of the biggest weeks of the year if you’re involved in the Lehigh Valley’s local music scene. On Sunday, our homegrown stars will come out to see who will come away with top honors at the Lehigh Valley Music Awards.
Before that, we have a whole week ahead of us, and another solid batch of…
Can’t-Miss Shows of the Week!
The second stop on our Folkin’ Good Saturday Night (we just came up with that name now — wish we would’ve done it sooner!) saw us head back to Bethlehem to Easton to once again enjoy a show at the legendary Godfrey Daniels. On this night, we had the privilege of taking in a performance from Dina Hall Band.
Blue Heart’s Revelry, the five-piece Americana band, and Scratch, the craft pizzeria inside Easton Public Market, have some things in common. Both reside in Easton, and both are riding real momentum pertaining to their contributions to the music scene.
As is usually the case, music drew us out of LVUHQ on Saturday afternoon to head to Hop Hill Brewing Company, who enjoyed the benefit of near-record high temps for the grand opening of its brand new Bethlehem location.
Catch Blue Heart’s Revelry tonight at 6 p.m. at Scratch, inside of Easton Public Market! Details here.

Some might know George Hrab as the drummer who provides the backbone for Philadelphia Funk Authority, one of the most renowned and versatile party bands this side of the Mississippi. Others may know him as the host of the Geologic Podcast, a true variety show which celebrates its 500th episode this Saturday; a 500-minute extravaganza to be broadcast on Facebook Live.
On Sunday, March 5th, those in attendance at the Lehigh Valley Music Awards will know George Hrab for one more reason: he will be honored as a 20 Year Veteran of our local music scene.
