The Harmony Guild kick off a special night of Live Country Roots and Honky Tonk tunes from Pittsburgh’s Bindley Hardware Co.
Bindley Hardware Co. is a rust-belt Americana band from Pittsburgh, PA. They draw influence from classic country, folk and modern alt-country, as well as from the original Bindley Hardware Co., its namesake hardware store owned and operated by frontman Jon’s family during Pittsburgh’s industrial boom in the early 20th century. “To be able to make music or have any kind of creative endeavor that identifies where you’re from is really important. Things in Pittsburgh inspire me every day. The Bindley Hardware Co. has such a rich history and I’m kind of making it my own,” Bindley said.
Tickets will be $15 with the opening band going on at 7:30pm. Opening act to be announced.

Don’t miss Gabe Stillman and opener Bob Beach!
Gabe Stillman and his band hit the stage in high gear as they embrace all corners of American Roots Music with their impromptu selection of original gems and carefully chosen covers. Since landing in the final 8 of the 35th Annual International Blues Challenge in Memphis TN, and further honored as the recipient of the Gibson Guitar Award, Gabe and his band have been focused on expanding their footprint on a national and international level. A graduate of Boston’s Berklee College of Music, Gabe’s honors include an invitation to support ZZ Top at the Key West Amphitheater; he was a Blues Music Award nominee in the Best New Emerging Artist Album category; and in March The Gabe Stillman Band was selected as the Best Blues Band by the 3rd Annual Central PA Music Awards.
Bob Beach plays harmonica with calm fierceness. A mouth-harp maestro who swaggers into a solo like The Marlboro Man, then quietly leaves the set while the rest of us wonder what just happened and how such a tiny instrument could possibly sound like that.
Tickets are $30 for general admission or $60 for VIP access (includes front row seats, private meet & greet and mini-concert before the show).
