Andy Mowatt’s Steely Jam is fresh off two tours, and ready to mash it up for “Hallow-funkin-ween”. Expect the same amount of original booty shakin’ funk, with a seasonal theme of musical “mash-ups”, from artists new and old. It’s a musical mind-melt: Steely Dan + Justin Timberlake, Beyonce + Bruce Hornsby, Chick Corea + The Beatles, Curtis Mayfield + Ray LaMontagne!!! How is this even possible?!? Let’s party!

Blujay, a four-piece band from Lancaster County, takes its audience to this level with a hypnotizing musical performance. Blujay is Mark Knepper of Lancaster on piano, Randy Bechtold of Lititz on drums, Corey Salzano of Manheim Township on bass, and Ryan Bechtold of Lititz on lead vocals and guitar.
With a lineup of local shows and plans to start recording this winter, the band brings a collection of originals and covers to the stage. They have a variety of influences, as all of them have played in different bands in the past. They play songs that Ryan wrote in previous bands, and they have written new songs together. Playing together since February, they’re working on developing their own sound as Blujay.
