About this Event

HMAC Presents our 1st Jam Band Tour Special event featuring a Touring Jam Band and a Dank Beer Special. This Inaugural event welcomes NJ ‘s Dogs In A Pile paired with Hemperor by New Belgium Brewing

Dogs In A Pile have been tearing up stages in the North East region this summer. Opening for or sharing the stage with bands like God Street Wine, String Cheese Indecent and Umphrey ‘s McGee . HMAC is excited to host 4 hours of Jamming that Jerry himself would be proud of. Put on our tie dye and dance.

Dogs in a Pile Bio

Dogs in a Pile is the culmination of a love of music born from the deepest American roots of psychedelia, jazz, fusion, funk, traditional, and rock & roll. Sprung from the rich Asbury Park music scene in New Jersey, their serendipitous convergence has made for the kind of kindred intuition its members had only once dreamed of. Described as “listening to a single moving organism,” the sum of its five parts represents an original journey into the peaks and valleys of psychedelic improvisation, all while remaining reminiscent of so much we love of life and music.

The final iteration of “the Dogs” began with University of the Arts Philadelphia student and Asbury Park veteran Jimmy Law, along with his long-time friend Joe Babick, a 3 year veteran of the gifted young musician’s program at the nationally renowned Count Basie Theater in Red Bank, NJ. Lightning struck when they were introduced to Berklee School of Music student and bass player Sam Lucid, who immediately suggested fellow Berklee student and multi- instrumentalist Jeremy Kaplan. The addition of fellow Berklee student and collaborator Brian Murray in 2019 made for the quintessential final piece in the Dogs’ puzzle. Their commonality and love for improvisation by way of bands like the Grateful Dead, as well as a fervent inclination for the study of jazz, fusion and classical music has helped shape the free-flowing style that is the Dogs. Their unique synergy and joy in creating “music as an atmosphere” equates simply to, as the band would say, “spreading good music and good energy to good people.”

THE HEMPEROR

HPA

The Hemperor HPA – The World’s Dankest Ale

Get ready: an exciting new offering that’ll change the way you think about hoppy beers is coming your way. The brewers at New Belgium have created a new style of IPA: The Hemperor HPA. With the popularity of hoppy beers, our brewers are always on the lookout for different hop varieties and the complexities and flavors new strains can bring. That’s where hemp comes into the picture. Without getting too nerdy, we found a unique way to recreate hemp terpene flavors in a beer, which complement the inclusion of hop flavors and hemp hearts (seeds) in a brand new, delicious way—not to mention this beer is extremely dank! The flavors and aromas are so unique that it’s a style unto itself, hence HPA®.

Big Gorgeous Taking The Stage at HMAC

in Aug2019/News/Past Event by

Big Gorgeous will be at HMAC along with !!! [Chk Chk Chk] and Illusionist John Westford!  AUGUST 10,2019

 

BIG GORGEOUS is an energetic and over-the-top theatrical Perv-Pop duo from the dark coal regions of Pennsylvania who now hail from San Francisco and New York City.

They combine infectious synth dance grooves with catchy, straightforward Punk power chords, trumpet accents, addictive choruses and colorful costumes changes. Though the lyrics may seem crude and, dare I say, vulgar at times, you won’t be able to stop singing along.

In 2018, they toured the Midwest and East Coast and also played Iceland Airwaves in Reykjavik, Iceland. They’re hot off their Spring 2019 tour and are set to release their debut album in the Spring of 2020.

BREAKING NEWS! Illusionist John Westford Coming to HMAC 8.10

in Aug2019/Past Event by

ATTENTION!

World renowned Illusionist John Westford  will be at HMAC on August 10, 2019 in Stage On Herr.

You will not want to miss this! He will join (CHK CHK CHK) !!! and Big Gorgeous at Stage on Herr!

CLICK HERE TO LEARN MORE ABOUT THIS EVENT AND BUY SHOW TICKETS! 

John’s interest in magic began with a magic set and a $5 paycheck for a birthday party.  Several years later, while attending a local show with an ensemble of national acts “The World of Illusion“, he was hooked.  For the next three years, John studied the fundamentals of this mysterious art with the producer and star of that show.

With his new found skills in magic and his natural ability to make people laugh, performing local shows helped put John through college and made him very popular at various political functions as he began a more conventional career with the Pennsylvania State Senate.  But his love for people and the stage would beckon. In the summer of 1990, John would leave his 9 to 5 job and move to Richmond, VA to star in a variety stage show – a brand new concept for Paramount’s King’s Dominion.

John’s show opened to rave reviews and well over 300 Performances later the act was ready when Nabisco launched a nationwide talent search.  John was selected from thousands of magicians nationwide to perform live on stage with Harry Blackstone, Jr. in Atlantic City!      

    Success in Atlantic City led to high-end corporate gigs in New York City, an appearance on national television – USA Live, USA Networks and bookings on cruise ships all over the world.  Including appearances with Alabama, The Beach Boys, Clint Holmes and the legendary Jerry Lee Lewis along the way!      

                                                                                               

His innate sense of humor, quick wit and award winning partner, Susan (recently named “Assistant of the Year” by the Magician’s Alliance of Eastern States) have made John’s act popular with audiences around the globe!
