Sat, Oct 31, 2015 - Keith Sansalone MediumMedium

Keith Sansalone

Keith is a drummer who plays guitar. He feeds his family by working his day job, though. He grew up with Creedence Clearwater Revival and Three Dog Night as his "bands to be like." He started playing drums in the eighth grade and picked up some chords on the guitar a year later. Basement bands were a part of his high school curriculum.

His main responsibility was usually vocals, however. In this role, he played with club bands in the southern New Jersey and Philadelphia markets during college. This helped him pay for school, but didn't do great things for his study time ...

He continued singing with bands for a few years after college, then gave it up completely for twenty years or so. It wasn't until he moved to Findlay that he began to kick the rust off his vocal cords and re-learn his way around the drums. Refreshing on the guitar, however, was not quite as easy, as he'd really never learned to play beyond a basic level. So there was the challenge: how to be the next Joe Bonamassa during what remains of his lifetime. Well, it looks like ol' Joe doesn't have to worry, but hey, ya gotta aim high, right? As they say: "try to be a little better today than you were yesterday ..."

Keith has played at Coffee Amici for nearly a decade as a solo act; teamed with his daughter, Mara; as part of the band, Script; but mostly as half of a duo with Jeremy Schlarb on open mic nights. He is happy for that partnership and for Amici, which he has watched become a Findlay landmark. He’s recently joined the Findlay Evangelical Free Church worship team, an assignment for which he is grateful.

Jeremy Schlarb

Jeremy grew up in the small town of Sebring in Northeastern Ohio.  The first instrument he learned to play was the piano starting at the age of 8.  After moving to Findlay, he started playing acoustic guitar and soon after got involved playing piano in the contemporary band at St. Paul’s United Methodist Church in town.  He has since moved on to playing mostly electric guitar and some occasional piano on Sunday mornings in the contemporary band.

He has been coming down to Coffee Amici for over 10 years with Keith for open mic nights.  His musical interests include a wide range of genres from classic rock of the 70’s to country to contemporary Christian, with his all-time favorite artist being Dave Matthews.

Sat, Nov 7, 2015 - Greg Mahan Quiet

Mahan’s bread-and-butter is elegant, graceful and often poetic Americana music, with songs built around his sturdy acoustic playing nd imagery-laden lyrics. On Daydream, there are some of Mahan’s best ever songs in that style (the minimal title track and the slow-burner, “Fireflies”), but the rest of the album shows that he is not limited to any one specific “genre” when writing. Calypso rhythms imbue “Mento” with a sassy strut, sounding like a weird mesh of Graceland-era Paul Simon and neo-Eastern European revivalists like DeVotchKa, while “Wink ’n’ a Smile” closes the album on a playful, sunny Pop note. Producer Brian Lovely helps achieve a crisp sound that allows the songs to breath and the musicians that flesh out the arrangements (with everything from strings to drums) perform flawlessly. Thirty-Five-Cent Daydream sounds as good as any “Roots” album you’ll hear this year, local or otherwise. Here’s a prediction for ya — local NPR affiliate WNKU is going to play the shit out of this one. Other programmers would be smart to follow suit. -Mike Breen, Cincinnati CityBeat

Sat, Nov 14, 2015 - Ed Karsnak Quiet

Ed was halfof an acoustic folk duo that started way, way, way back in his college days. He and his partner Tim played extensively for several years in the Youngstown area, playing gigs anywhere they could from Western Pennsylvania to the greater Cleveland area. Career opportunities in the real world sent his partner to Pittsburgh , and Ed eventually landed in Findlay fourteen years ago with his wife and two daughters. As a solo performer, Ed’s music is heavily influenced by his musical heroes James Taylor, Paul Simon, andDan Fogelberg, as well as many other singer/songwriters from the 70’s on up totoday.

Sat, Nov 28, 2015 - Ryan Hensley and Susan Bright Quiet

Ryan Hensley expresses his appreciation for the singer/songwriter genre of music by performing a collection of songs written by artists such as Neil Young, Bob Dylan, James Taylor, and many others. Ryan also performs his own interpretation of soul/R&B covers with the guitar and harmonica. He also has a knack for transforming classic pop songs into beautiful lullabies with his ukulele. The ukulele is an instrument that is guaranteed to put a smile on everyone�s face. You may recognize Ryan Hensley from a number of other bands; Mystic Rhythms, the Civil Surfers, Blues 215.

Sat, Dec 5, 2015 - The Jack Schilb Trio MediumMedium

I will be joined Saturday night by two accomplished musicians. Don Beyer on bass, and Chuck Mauk on drums, who (I think) are one of the best rhythm sections you're likely to hear. We're working on a CD of original tunes which we'll perform, along with a variety of familiar songs. Looking forward to a fun filled evening, hope to see you all there.

A former member of the bluegrass band the “Diamonds in the Rough,” I’ve been playing music in different genres for many years. Beginning with a rock and roll band during high school days, and moving to acoustic folk rock and an emphasis on songwriting throughout the college years. After a middle age hiatus, the past fifteen years have been busy with several musical endeavers.Am currently playing in an acoustic duo with blues harmonica player Dan “Mudfoot” Hubbs, playing occasionally with a group of fellow songwriters from Bowling Green called the “Long Lost Brothers,” working on a jazz / swing trio with an upright bassist and a trumpet player, and of course playing solo gigs.I enjoy trying to cover those songs that are familiar, but not heard that often. The goal being to hear people say, “That’s a great song, I haven’t heard that forever.” Songwriting, however, will always be my first love. and to that end have been writing many things the past few years.
