Bovine Social Club is one of the bands to perform at The Historic State Theatre of Boyertown on Friday, Aug. 1.

In cooperation with the Philadelphia Folksong Society, The Karmic Repair Company with special guests Bovine Social Club and Gregg Cagno will appear Friday, Aug. 1, at The State Theatre of Boyertown,

A variety of instruments and buoyant vocals give The Karmic Repair Company a range of musical colors and textures to work with that surpasses the power trio palette. They’re equally adept at bluegrass, reggae, pop-rock, dance-rock, blues, progressive rock, and jam-band music.

Bred on the northern banks of the Delaware River, Bovine Social Club, is a grassy, twangy, swinging breed of Americana Alt-Country sounds sure to get your dancing cow on. One wicked lineup of seasoned jam musicians backing the lyrics of guitarist, vocalist, philosopher, memoirist and former monk, Samuel Saint Thomas, Bovine Social Club is one of the fastest growing new Americana bands in Metro New York.

Bovine Social Club features: Samuel Saint Thomas- Lyrics, Vocals, Guitars, Harmonica, Jeffrey Barg – Drums, Seth Mandel - Violin, Mandolin, Vocals, Johnny Smith - Guitars, Banjo, Vocals and Ronald Baumann - Upright Bass.

And also on stage will be Gregg Cagno, a native of Clinton, NJ, who now makes his home in Philadelphia. Gregg is a two time ASCAPlus award winner for the folk genre.

His ease of phrasing and clear, warm baritone communicates joy, wit, love and whatever else comes to mind without pretense.
