new audio pageant provides stellar lineup

HAMPTON TWP. − When he’s not on stage that day firing off fierce guitar licks, Johnny Baab designs to be a spectator at the Maple Residence Music + Arts Pageant, a very first-time celebration Could 21 at Hartwood Acres.

“I’ll be elbowing my way to the front row” stated Baab, lead guitarist for Pittsburgh’s bluesy-rock band Ghost Hounds, the host band for a pageant that brings nationally acclaimed functions the Black Pumas, Lake Avenue Dive, Elle King and headliners Jason Isbell + The 400 Unit to the Allegheny County park.

It can be a one particular-off party curated for western Pennsylvania.

“We’re pretty thrilled to host this in Pittsburgh,” Baab explained. “Our team did an wonderful job, and I am searching forward to a good lineup and a fantastic working day. “We need a hometown bash to kick the pandemic blues absent.”
