Cabinet on Center Stage

Cabinet is a six-piece, bluegrass-influenced Pennsylvania band with a heart for performing live. Their latest album, Leap, was recorded in the studio, but done in live takes with a live audience. Before that, the band released a live DVD / CD recorded November 11, 2011 at Harrisburg’s Abbey Bar. The CD set is called Eleven and captures Cabinet in the heart of their element.

Cabinet is built of Pappy Biondo [banjo, vocals], J.P. Biondo [mandolin, vocals], Mickey Coviello [acoustic guitar, vocals], Dylan Skursky [electric bass, double bass], Todd Kopec [fiddle, vocals], and Jami Novak [drums, percussion]. 

Pappy and J.P. Biondo are cousins, and are the main songwriters for the group. Along with guitarist Mickey Coviello they sat down to talk with Center Stage hosts Joe Ulrich and Cary Burkett about their music and the band. The concert comes from their live appearance at the Abbey Bar performed in front of a rambunctious sold out crowd.





You can get their music and goodies online at the ropeadope store or on Itunes.





Also on the progrram a Center Stage Spotlight feature on The Lone Wolf Project. Singer/songwriter Philip Nathaniel Freeman and a number of his friends perform and record under that name. He is from Mount Wolf, PA and his music is rooted in folk and blues.
