DINGMANS FERRY - Trick or Treat - that’s for you to decide. The Bandingo Brothers are at it again. Throwing a Halloween Super-Bash experience like no other called “Mayhem On The Mountain”. On Saturday Oct. 28, the Silver Lake Tavern in Dingman’s Ferry, PA will be the host of a special Halloween event. Three bands, three solo-acoustic acts, a costume contest, tricky tray, 50/50 as well as bizarre dancing and prizes will round out the all-evening show. The Halloween Super-Bash “Mayhem On The Mountain” is presented by the Bandingo Brothers, the same people who put together the legendary Rampage On The River and Big Bandingo Music Festivals. Headlining this event will be the Brian McLoughlin Band, a dynamic jam band from NEPA, a guaranteed crowd pleaser with a line-up of impeccable musicians and catchy original songs that will have you on your feet non-stop. Their debut CD blur was hailed as one of the top 100 albums of 2005 by Upstage Radio & Magazine. Check out the band on line at www.brianmcloughlin.com. You’ll hear the long eerie wail of the whistle through the thick dense fog, you’ll be blinded by its’ light, but it will be to late to get off the tracks, for here comes the B-Train Express. Brian Trainor, Vinnie Caplette & John Giovanni are back in town with a new original sound, blending old school blues with the energy of today’s rock & roll. The B-Train Express is an exciting ride, this quartet captures moments in time while performing live, echoing expressions of Led Zeppelin, and the soulfulness of Kenny Wayne Shepard.

The Silver Lake All-Star Band featuring Richie Antonucci, John Maier, Rick Weber, and Jay Ortiz, is a band spawned from the Open Mic that’s held at the Silver Lake Tavern every Sunday from 3 to 7 p.m. Blues, rock, folk this band does it all and with such style, playing all of your favorite raunchy bar tunes, it’ll tear you up. Black-Creek, an acoustic duo comprised of Tara & Eric Yetter, have been honing their songwriting craft from coast to coast. While Tara was touring the San Francisco Coffeehouse circuit, Eric was right here in Milford, PA hosting an open mic at the 7th Street Coffee.

Singer/Songwriter Bjy, a three fingered acoustic guitar slinger, says “I’ll be shredding my way through songs like a rusty blade through a digit”. Yuck! Bjy, for reasons we can’t explain, has been gaining popularity in the area with his song entitled ‘Johnny Cash’.
