The Jersey Corn Pickers are a Philly area band that play original and traditional high energy bluegrass and americana music. Their style is informed by their love of old time, folk, rock, blues, traditional country, jamgrass and all manner of roots music. They love to perform and jam and that shines through in their shows.

Band members are JC Bell on mandolin, Barry Hollander on guitar and vocals, Harry Gambrill on banjo and vocals, Larry Maltz on Dobro, and Mike McLane on upright bass and vocals.

After forming in late 2010, they began honing their chops playing shows all over the Philadelphia area.  Before long, they were playing music festivals from Virginia to Maine, as well as appearing on the WXPN’s Folk Show multiple times with Gene Shay and Ian Zolitor.  They have three records of original songs, The Jersey Corn Pickers, Lessons Learned, and A Little Something.

Fronted by singer-songwriter, Drew Harris, and guitarist, Tim Campbell, the Naked Sun have been a staple of the Philadelphia music scene for the past 10 years.  After spending the mid-aughts in the Baltimore, MD, eclectic and robust music scene, Harris moved home to his native Philadelphia to start a rock band with a little more edge than the folky “streetgrass” stylings of his previous bands (Cityslides, Red Sammy, Good Guise). Harris met Campbell when Harris answered an add looking for a female country singer. Harris met Tim at his South Jersey home to audition, and though he wasn’t quite what Campbell was looking for Harris won Campbell over with his songs. Soon the two formed a band, won the WXPN Beta Hi-Fi Festival and started playing shows and recording albums. Flash forward to today, Harris and Campbell are joined by Dylan Mulcahy (Shark Tape) on drums, Tom Tusler (Claymation Horror Show) on bass, Alan Sheltzer on keys, and Bradley Moser on lead guitar. The Naked Sun is currently recording the follow up LP to their 2018 release, “War With Shadows,” and performing live around the Delaware Valley and beyond.
