Del Water Gap immediately followed, presenting themselves as a band of troubadours. A blend of folk and rock n roll bounces off the walls, topped with a trumpet that sails through the songs like a sailboat on a gentle current.The band features S. Holden Jaffe on vocals and rhythm guitar, William Evans on bass, Chris Conway on lead guitar, Jared LaCasce on trumpet, and Kyle Olsen on drums.
Jaffe’s voice is both gritty and angelic as it cuts through the room. The band’s energy is a force fueled by lanky legs, and full-bodied vocal harmonies that ring out like a call to the wild. Stello closed out the show, featuring Del Water Gap’s Chris Conway on lead vocals and guitar and Scott James on guitar, keeping life and a sense of celebration all the way to the end of the evening.
