Mizza’s Song Swap is made up of the core group of musicians who have been playing at Mizza’s each month for the past 5 years! This group has become a real centerpiece for many of their lives as it is predictably fun and always different. This lineup is made up of Ed Thorney – vocals, guitar, harmonica; Jill Gibbons – vocals, mandolin, percussion; Tom Hanford – vocals, fiddle, guitar; Charlie Knox – bass; Roger Cohen – vocals, guitar; Lenny Sutton – vocals, harmonica; Joel Blumert – vocals, guitars; and Diane and Joel Schapira – backup vocals, tambourine. Collectively it is fair to say they are a well-seasoned bunch of local musicians who bring to their shows a lively variety of country blues, folk, Americana, rock and progressive country. Strong vocals featuring an assortment of guitars, fiddle, mandolin, harmonicas, percussion and toe tappin’ smiles is what you can expect.
