The Dyer Switch Band plays hard-driving traditional, original and unique bluegrass, and acoustic music, and more.
Dyer Switch was inducted into the New York State Country Music Hall of Fame and nominated for five consecutive years as Bluegrass Band of the Year by the Northeast Country Music Association. In 1998 , “Gotta Feelin’,” from the band’s third recording, “American Airwaves,” was nominated for “Song of the Year” by the Northeast CMA. Dyer Switch has received considerable airplay in North America and Europe, and a song that band members JoAnn Sifo and Bob Bates wrote called ‘Silver and Gold’ was number one on the European country charts. Bob Bates performed on the Grand Ole Opry with Charlie Louvin (Louvin Brothers) for 2 years. The band has been featured on Northeast Public Radio and has opened for Ralph Stanley and for the Larry Stephenson band. This versatile, engaging band with dynamic stage presence has captivated audiences throughout the Northeast, Midwest and the South at festivals, clubs, coffeehouses, fairs and live radio shows. The band brings together hard-driving renditions of traditional tunes from first-generation bluegrass giants like Bill Monroe, Ralph Stanley, their own powerful originals and fresh and innovative versions of songs from other genres. The band’s fifth recording, “In The Spotlight of the Moon” on Independence Records, showcases the distinctive song writing talents, vocal and instrumental versatility of the four members. Dyer Switch’s original composition, “Just Can’t Stay”, charted the Bluegrass Music Charts shortly after its release.

Jim Gaudet and The Railroad Boys make one feel as if they’re traveling in time, maybe back to Louisiana in 1963. Mel Guarino of The Bluebillies said, “There is no other band that I know that can sound so modern and yet so classic and nostalgic.” It’s at once, Old Timey and Timeless, echoing the sound and feel of maybe Hank Williams or the Stanley Brothers, with a hill-billy edge.
Jim Gaudet and The Railroad Boys specialize in a progressively flavored bluegrass sound often containing wickedly funny, all original, satirical lyrics. They are consistently entertaining and have attracted an avid, loyal audience. Don’t miss an opportunity to see this band which offers a change of pace and a lot of up tempo fun.

Irish-Americans John Haggerty and Mike DeAngelis have been performing Irish music together since 1979. In 2013, they founded their newest band, GET UP JACK, a culmination of nearly four decades of musical performances together and with other well-known bands, playing in the US and Ireland. John and Mike have had the distinct pleasure of sharing the festival stages with their original musical inspirations: the Clancy Brothers, Tommy Makem, and The Wolftones, as well as their more contemporary influences: The Saw Doctors and Great Big Sea. Drawing from classic Irish folk sound, GET UP JACK merges todays high energy Irish music with impressive vocal harmony and unexpected musical talent. GET UP JACK is at home playing in a neighborhood pint-swinging pub or performing on a festival stage to a dancing crowd of thousands - and every venue in-between. Old and young alike enjoy the moving beat or mournful ballad from these seasoned showmen, who have also shared the same festival stages with Gaelic Storm, Eileen Ivers, Solas, Black 47 and The Young Dubliners, to name a few.
GET UP JACK has released three albums that have been critically-acclaimed and award winning. Their live album, Alive and Well, Volume 1 was named 2015 "Album of the Year" by Celtic Radio, with their version of The Spanish Lady being voted Traditional Song of the Year.
We've made it a tradition to celebrate "Un-St. Patrick's Day" here at WHBC with the area's premier Irish Band, Get Up Jack! Though we're as far on the calendar as you can get from St. Patrick's Day, we'll celebrate in style with Campout Stout flowing at a discount all night long! Come early and grab a bite to eat from our friends at Buzzard's Bay BBQ and get a spot to enjoy the show!
