MHB Plays Grape Stomp Festival – Saturday Oct 5, 2013
The MHB Band will be rocking out at this years Grape Stomp Festival on Saturday Oct 5, 2013 at Sugarloaf Mountain Vineyard.
Located in the rolling hills of Comus, Maryland on the border of Montgomery and Frederick Counties. Featured throughout the festival is the popular and exciting Grape Stomp contest where you can test your skill and competitive juices in this ancient wine making tradition! Prizes will be awarded!
MHB has a fantastic line up for the night with some of his favorite local musicians. Drummer Torro Gamble has performed with MHB numerous times and has become a staple drummer for the band’s live performances in the Maryland/DC area. “Torro is a fantastic musician all around. He’s able to site right in the pocket and give’s me the drum grooves I hear in my head. What more can a front man want, say’s MHB.” Also, for the first time, friend of MHB and local musician Sean Chuyn will be joining the band on guitar and vocals. “I’m super stoked about having Sean on this gig. We’ve played numerous times together over the past few years at jam nights, such as the famous Harp and Fiddle Jam night with local legend Gary Grainger and Brandon Combs, but this is the first official gig with him on guitar and vocals. It’s going to be a great show!” say’s MHB.
