Friday July 12 – 6:00pm
Manfort is a locally-grown rock/blues/country group started some years back by guitarist/vocalist Kyle Gruhlke (who prefers to play in R sharp), guitarist/vocalist Jamie Groth (pleasant enough), bassist Matt Gruhlke (chronically compassion-fatigued) and drummer Paul Mathees (everybody’s favorite). In the past year this well-loved group of masterful musicians opened its arms to guitarist John Pohling (the MSG of Manfort) and vocalist Sarah Johnson (Ladykopp). Manfort (feat. Ladykopp) is known for the fun they have on stage, their copious nicknames for one another and their tailfeather-shakin’ polished guitar and vocal harmonies.
