Saturday – 8pm – 10pm – The Dean Street Kings – Are four graduates of local Catholic Grade Schools including Joe Sembrat who went to our own Saints Simon and Jude School. From there these great musicians  went to Bishop Canevin High School. They finalized their education at Penn State University. They played in a band together throughout all of this time and are really excited to come to the SSJ Festival. They play classic rock from the 60’s all the way to current releases. Don’t miss them, they will be a lot of fun!

Saturday – 7pm – 8pm – Osborne Wolfgang – Is  four energetic musicians who attend Chartiers Valley High School. These young musicians started playing together two years ago. They clicked from the beginning and have never looked back. They play classic rock songs as well as new hits from today’s rock artists. Watch these guys, they could just be the next big thing!
