The Gabe Stillman Band is a three-piece machine that runs at full tilt for every performance. While their sound is unmistakably rooted in the blues, the band draws from the deep well of all American roots music.
Since landing in the final 8 of the 35th Annual International Blues Challenge in Memphis TN, and further honored as the recipient of the esteemed Gibson Guitar Award, Gabe and his band have been focused on expanding their footprint on a national and international level.
Based in Williamsport, Pennsylvania, Gabe formed the band in 2015, shortly after graduating from Boston’s Berklee College of Music.

Seasoned guitarist, Ben Brandt, and his band play a unique mixture of Blues, Prog and Rock that is well known in the Harrisburg, PA and surrounding Tri State area.
Cover: Breaking Up Somebody's Home With Ben on guitar and vocals, Joe Shattls on drums and Liam Galiano on bass, the listener can expect to hear an eclectic mix of influences ranging from Gary Moore and Eric Johnson to Robin Trower, Steve Vai and Alex Lifeson, Brandt alone creates a dynamic sound that carries meaning and purpose in every phrase and note played.
Blues Rock Review: “Brandt brings a gritty, seasoned approach to the songs he captains.” At times he provides “crisp licks and understated solos” whereas other songs allow Ben “the space to stretch out and cut into some aggressive playing” with “riff driven rhythm and ominous lyrics.”
The chemistry of this current lineup is quickly gaining a wide fan base and reputation in the Blues Rock scene.
