Hops & Vines

hops and vines 2

Christie: I've been singing, basically, my whole life. I used to bang on our piano at home and attempt to play a guitar. I'd play any instrument you put in front of me. I didn't say I'd play it well.

My family had eclectic taste in music, so I grew up listening to artists like Stevie Ray Vaughn, Patsy Cline, Glen Miller Orchestra, and Conway Twitty. Throw in some classic rock, pop, and blues, that was my household. My biggest influences are Ann Wilson (Heart), Patsy Cline, Janis Joplin, The Beatles, and Springsteen.

 I "borrowed" my brother's Springsteen box set and never returned it (sorry, Paulie!). And had a tendency to "borrow" my sister's tapes as well. Hmm, I guess I was a cassette-klepto! It's ok, I don't have a boombox anymore, so no need to hide your music! I remember how much I loved being able to pick out a new 45 when I'd go shopping w/ my parents. The Bangles, Wham, ABC (why, yes, i do love the 80's, why do you ask?) spinning on my Michael Jackson record player. I wore out Billy Vera and the Beaters on that machine.

Jonathan: The first CD I ever got was the Aladdin Soundtrack. And the rest is history....

Let me try that again. My second CD was Shaquille O'Neal's platinum-selling album, "Shaq Diesel." (It went platinum. Seriously.)...

 Take 3... Nirvana's "Bleach" was lined up to be my third CD, but the record shop didn't have it. I bought Pearl Jam's "Ten" instead, and that (for real this time) set the stage for a lifetime of musical influence and fandom. Over the past 20 years, my interests have expanded, and now include classic rock, punk, folk, bluegrass, techno, and Shaq's last three albums (Seriously. There's four of them). I've been writing songs for almost 20 years. I play the guitar, and dabble with the bass, piano, and ukulele. I also try to sing. Outside of Pearl Jam, my influences are REM, Queen, Josh Ritter, Barnstar, Bob Dylan, Pendulum, and Shaquille O'Neal.

 I am very lucky to have the opportunity to play music Christie can wail to. I love playing live music, seeing people dancing/singing along, learning new tunes, and going new places. I've also taught myself to hold in my winces when 80's music is brought to the table.

Sean Farley

Born in Williamsport, PA, music has been a part of my life since the beginning. My grandmother has been a professional pianist and music teacher for twice the length of my lifetime! I grew up around her pianos and organs and was always drawn to their beautiful sounds. It was clear that music was deeply engrained in my heart and soul. I have been learning to play instruments such as piano, voice, violin, drums, bass, and guitar since the age of five. These days, playing the guitar and singing consumes my life and my future!

Eco & Sway

echo-and-sway

The Echo & Sway formed in 2008 when Jared Conti released a chapbook of poetry entitled “Back In the Saddle: My Love/Hate Relationship with the Space Cowboy” and began reading selections at local open mics. He was joined shortly thereafter by longtime friend Anthony LaLota, and the two would split sets with LaLota singing songs and Conti reading poetry in between. Before long, it evolved into Conti reading over slow-picked instrumentals and singing backup harmonies during the songs. The duo began accepting regular bookings throughout PA and The Echo & Sway was born.

Chris LaRose

Chris-LaRose-Promo-Poster-8.5x11- 300dpi 1

Chris LaRose hails from Lock Haven Pennsylvania; growing up in garages restoring vintage motorcycles with his family and friends sure had a unique impact on his music style. Chris’s concerts range from driving blues and upbeat 50’s rockabilly to soulful acoustic originals. He feels honored to have played several shows with Grammy Award winning Native American artist Joanne Shenandoah both in America and in Europe. He has recently returned stateside after playing a string of concerts across Germany for international conferences, pub and restaurant events, weddings and other celebrations. One of his favorite hobbies while abroad was playing street music, which he used as a means to backpack through Germany, Spain, Poland and the Czech Republic. Now home again he is excited to announce his presence in the live music scene and to promote his current original album Switchblade Blues. It is not uncommon to find Chris playing his music at Car Shows, Air Shows, Motorcycle Swap meets, County Fairs, Breweries, Restaurants and many other venues as distant as cars, planes, and trains will travel.

  The Broken Axe Brew House is committed to bringing you the best Jazz, Blues, Bluegrass, and Folk Music from across central Pennsylvania and beyond. In an intimate 70 seat venue with live music every Saturday at 8pm.


 Due to our small intimate setting and limited preforming space we focus on solo and duets acts. In order to insure the best experience for our patrons and performers we do not book "full band's" (four piece and larger). We also have limited the use of full percussion sets in an effort to avoid overwhelming the space. Thank you for your consideration, we look forward to continually supporting live music in Lock Haven.
