No Small Children – Female rock trio
Sweet Ember – Originals and covers from 70’s to current

Sweet Ember

Sweet Ember is a five piece band that started a few years ago. The band was originally The Lisa Thomas Band and then additional members were brought on board and Sweet Ember was built. The band began to become popular in the Lancaster area and was the city of Lancaster’s 2016 featured band for New Years Eve. Since then we have expanded to Harrisburg, York, and Reading areas. The members include Katrina Ambron that provides the powerful vocals, Jason Gray on Bass and lead vocals, Eric Dietrich on Lead and vocals, Lisa Thomas on Guitar and vocals and Joe Shattis on Drums. We have developed a following of different age spans as our music spans over many different generations provided classic rock, pop and blues.


No Small Children


Three teachers walk into a bar, onto the stage, plug their instruments in and then… they melt your face.

No Small Children is excited to announce the release of their new singles, ‘Radio‘ and ‘I Feel Better‘. Additionally, the band’s original song, ‘Big Steps‘, is featured in the new Netflix series, Santa Clarita Diet. The show launched February 3rd, 2017.

No Small Children’s remake of the classic Ghostbusters theme song can be heard in the new Ghostbusters movie! Listen to the song and watch the video! Additionally, RCA Records has officially released the song as a single.No Small Children’s new singles were produced by the legendary, Bob Marlette (Rob Zombie, Black Sabbath, Filter, etc…). The band released their third album, “Hold Tight, I’m Flying”, in July 2015. Produced by Lisa Pimentel and mixed by Bob Marlette, this album is heavier and more complex, but just as bold and unapologetic as their first two, “Trophy Wife” and “Dear Youth”; both available on iTunes and CDBaby.

NSC released their third music video, Big Steps, in March of 2016. Created with the help of over 30 people who generously volunteered their time, talent, and resources, the video is a collaboration in the truest sense. Their other videos include Might Get Up Slow and Drunk Creepy Guy.

NSC’s animated, edgy and break-neck live show both invites you in and calls you out, all while you sing along to the fresh, yet familiar, refrains of their carefully constructed songs. Their glamorous matching dresses and bona fide command of the stage will have you leaving at the end of the night a little hoarse, with a smile, and a warm fuzzy feeling.

“I was struck not only by their musicianship but by how well they engage an audience. Lisa and Joanie are a powerful pair of front women” -Alice Bag Razorcake Mag

No Small Children is an all-girl band, or as they call themselves, a band. They were born on the playground in the spring of 2012. Elementary school-teachers by day, guitarist and singer Lisa Pimentel and drummer Nicola Berlinsky decided to start the band while covering recess duty. Three months later they had an EP, countless shows behind them and an east coast tour booked. By October 2013, bass player and singer Joanie Pimentel had moved to Los Angeles to join the group. With all three teaching at the same school, lunch breaks became band meetings, after-school times became rehearsals and holidays were reserved for touring.

“Relatively new on the L.A. scene, all lady trio No Small Children have been tearing it up, one dive bar at a time” Aileen Frasier, The LA Beat 2015 In 2014, NSC released their LP, “Trophy Wife”, toured both east and west coasts and played three shows at SXSW. In 2015, along with their frequent California shows, tour plans include Colorado, the Midwest, and East Coast. “It’s not unusual for kids to wear a T-shirt to school with their favorite band on it. But at this school., that T-shirt may also have a picture of their teacher — actually, three of their teachers.” NPR –Secret Lives of Teachers, 2014.
NSC is honored to have been invited to perform at the Unity Ball in Washington DC immediately following the Women’s March on Washington, January 21st, 2017! The band spoke about this and other topics during their interview on NPR’s Weekend Edition that airedJanuary 1st.
These ladies eat, live and breathe music, and you can feel it in their songs. They create it, perform it, and then pass their love of it onto the next generation of music lovers. Soon to be playing at a big theatre near you…
