Jane west

Jane West summons Americana voices like Linda Ronstadt and Gillian Welch with the contemporary sounds of Emmylou Harris and Rachel Price in a relaxed, engaged atmosphere. Singing all over the Greater Pittsburgh Area since she was six years old, Jane has been fortunate enough to perform a variety of genres including: rock, jazz, blues, folk, classical, opera, funk, choral, bluegrass, electronica, Celtic, musical theatre, and even barbershop. Her passion for music has followed her throughout her musical studies (nationally and internationally) since she was 9 years old, learning several instruments along the way of her vocal journey.

July 21: The Adorabulls 

The Adorabulls

The four members of Pittsburgh’s The Adorabulls are music nerds that happen to be good at pumping up crowds and playing high energy ’80s party music on weird instruments!  They often do 3 and 4-part harmony vocals and swap lead vocal duties.  The goal is always to put on an upbeat, humorous, and engaging show. John McNulty (ukulele) has been playing in various bands for over 20 years, playing drums, guitar, and most recently ukulele.  In 2013, John was given a ukulele for Christmas, which ultimately resulted in formation of The Adorabulls, after several friends were convinced that a weird-instrument party band might be fun.
