Jane Lee Hooker, a band of five women from New York City who infuse the grit and attitude of their hometown into the blues, will take the stage following Vinyl Artifacts, a local band called “one of Kennett Square’s best kept secrets,” according to a Flash press release.

With double lead guitars, a heavy rhythm section, and soulful vocals, Jane Lee Hooker honors the likes of Muddy Waters, Howlin’ Wolf, Johnny Winter, Big Mama Thornton, and other blues greats. Its debut album, No B!, was released in November 2014, and it’s currently working on a new album. However, band members are not new to the music scene, according to a Flash press release.

The band’s five members have decades of experience playing, recording, and touring, both nationally and internationally, as members of Nashville Pussy, Bad Wizard, Led Zeppelin and more and sharing bills with the likes of Motörhead, MC5, Lynyrd Skynyrd, and Deep Purple.

Vinyl Artifacts, a blues and classic rock group, is a combination of four area high school and college students: Elliott Mazur on lead guitar and back vocals, Zach Powell on lead vocals and back guitar, Andrew Reynolds on bass and back vocals, and Luke Wagner on drums and percussion.

The group, which has performed at La Verona restaurant and area open mic nights, has perfected tunes by artists from John Mayer to Warren Haynes to the Allman Brothers as well as increased its body of original songs.  At 17, Mazur will be auditioning for attendance at the prestigious Berkley School of Music in Boston later this month, the release said.
