The February 2018 #LVUFirstFriday Lineup

With our 2nd Birthday Spectacular now in the rear view, we turn our focus to Year 3 of Lehigh Valley Underground – which we’ll officially kick off in style on Friday, February 2 with the latest rousing installment of the Lehigh Valley Underground First Friday Concert Series in South Bethlehem.

We’re back with another twin bill at Godfrey Daniels, featuring a pair of top-notch solo performers that you’ll definitely want to catch. Our evening at Godfrey’s will begin at 7:30 p.m. with an acoustic performance from Tye Vallone of The Groove Merchants. That will be followed – loops, synths, and all – by a jam-tastic experience from the one and only Hairy Dudini beginning at 8:30 p.m.

Over at The Banana Factory, visitors will be treated to a performance from Berks County folk rock duo Mo7s. The pair, comprised of husband and wife team Dave and Amy Lewis, will perform beginning at 7 p.m. during Throw Down #1 of iDreamMachine’s “Art Wars.”

Meanwhile, Domaci’s still-new SouthSide location features a familiar face, when singer-songwriter Brittany Ramaglia makes her #LVUFirstFriday return! Brittany will perform acoustic beginning at 7 p.m. to follow up on her well-received performance at The Banana Factory in October.

Of course, the amazing Brian Kibler will continue his First Friday residency into the New Year at Molly’s Irish Grille & Sports Pub (at the corner of 4th and New St.), playing another patented set of rocking acoustic tunes from 6-9 p.m.

Also, recently added to the February lineup: singer-songwriter Ralph Pagano, who makes his return to #LVUFirstFriday after joining us on our maiden voyage in September, when he performed as the Zoellner Arts Center courtyard at Lehigh University. Ralph will join us this time at the Comfort Suites Hill to Hill Grille beginning at 6 p.m.

Speaking of returning performers, Charter Arts student Jay-T was just added back to the mix! The young singer-songwriter will return to Color Me Mine Lehigh Valley at 6:30 p.m.
