    The Johnstown Area Heritage Association, which produces the festival, has announced a 2-show free concert series at Peoples Natural Gas Park, made possible by Highmark Blue Cross Blue Shield.

    Friday, July 9: The National Reserve with special guest Van Waylon

    Founded and fronted by singer-guitarist Sean Walsh, The National Reserve mine an archetypal musical seam, marrying gutbucket R&B, Laurel Canyon lyricism, New Orleans funk workouts, late night soul, and bluesy, boozy rock ‘n’ roll to create their own timeless brand of American music. This fantastic touring act played our concert series in 2019, and we’re excited to welcome them back!

    Johnstown favorites Van Waylon will open up the show.

    Gates will open at 6:00 p.m.
    Van Waylon: 7:00 p.m.
    The National Reserve: 9:00 p.m.

    Saturday, July 24: Buffalo Rose with special guests Mama Rose and The Whiskey River Panhandlers

    Listening to Buffalo Rose is like driving on the open road with the windows down, letting the breezes of various musical styles wash over you. Buffalo Rose commandeers the shimmering and electrifying riffs of the mandolin (Bryce Rabideau), the cascading guitar arpeggios of folk and bluegrass (Shane McLaughlin), the ringing purity of the dobro (Malcolm Inglis), and the steady percussive thrum of upright bass (Jason Rafalak), providing a effervescent blanket of sound under and around which the ethereal harmonies of Lucy Clabby, Margot Jezerc, and McLaughlin float. There’s a singular beauty in every Buffalo Rose song, whether the group is covering Madonna’s “Borderline” or delivering their stirring original material.

    Mama Corn is central Pennsylvania’s premier bluegrass band. This charismatic quartet runs the gamut of song and style, and can please any crowd. Their latest record, “Live and Learn” was released in January of 2017, coinciding with the tenth anniversary of the the band.

    Local favorites Whiskey River Panhandlers will reunite to open the evening with a special short set to commemorate the 10th anniversary of their disc, “Songs from Grandma’s Radio”! It’s an impossible paradox of the best Americana music that every song sounds familiar yet new, but The Whiskey River Panhandlers pull it off. Although some carefully-chosen covers are included in the Panhandlers’ sets, most of what you’ll hear is original songs whose taproots run deep, evoking a simpler time when pretty much all music was acoustic and live.

    Gates will open at 5:30 pm
    Whiskey River Panhandlers: 6:00 pm
    Mama Corn: 7:00 pm
    Buffalo Rose: 9:00 pm

    In a press conference today, the AmeriServ Flood City Music Festival announced its Friday and Saturday headliners: Bruce Hornsby & the Noisemakers, and Uprooted featuring Michael Glabicki of Rusted Root. The festival, which normally takes place the first weekend in August, will take place Oct. 1-2 this year.

    “We have wanted to present Bruce Hornsby & the Noisemakers at the festival for years – they are an act with almost limitless appeal for a wide range of audiences. We are thrilled to be presenting them on Saturday night of the 2021 festival,” said Ron Carnevali, festival chairman. “And Uprooted featuring Michael Glabicki of Rusted Root is one of the most popular acts ever to come out of the Pittsburgh region, and they’ll deliver a terrific show for us on Friday.”

    The two-day, three-stage festival is held at Peoples Natural Gas Park, a venue that was developed by the festival’s producer, the Johnstown Area Heritage Association.

    AmeriServ Financial is the festival’s title sponsor for a record 26th year.

    “We are thrilled to be moving forward with JAHA and the festival committee to bring this widely anticipated event back to our community. The musical line up is first rate and will definitely provide a much welcomed wide array of music choices for festival goers to enjoy,” said Jeff Stopko, AmeriServ Financial, Inc., president and CEO.

    The remaining 12 performers will be announced on festival social media tomorrow (May 20), one every 15 minutes, beginning at 10:00.

    Early-bird two-day passes are $40, or $55 for a VIP Pass, which includes access to the VIP Lounge and the site’s only full bar and indoor restrooms, as well as a special tented viewing area at the mainstage. Single-day tickets will go on sale when early-bird prices expire at 11:59 pm on July 31. Regular prices for passes are $50 for two-day passes, $65 for VIP, and single-day tickets will be $25 for Friday night, and $40 for Saturday night.

    Tickets are being sold through the Eventgroove platform this year, and may be bought online beginning at 2:00 pm on Thursday. Passes will go on sale in person at the Heritage Discovery Center and Johnstown Flood Museum on Friday. JAHA members are entitled to a free upgrade from general admission to VIP passes – to take advantage of this benefit, passes must be purchased in person (limit 4 per family membership.)

    We’re excited to confirm that we are moving forward with the 2021 festival on Oct. 1-2. Lineup announcement is coming up in mid-May. Stay tuned!

  • Posted on 2021-02-05

    The Johnstown Area Heritage Association (JAHA) is announcing tentative plans to hold its signature event, the AmeriServ Flood City Music Festival, in October 2021 rather than its usual August timeframe. The 2020 festival was canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

    The event has been tentatively set for Oct. 1-2, 2021. Ron Carnevali, festival chairman, said that a final announcement will be made confirming the festival will go forward no later than May 1.

    “Our event requires such a long planning period that we think it’s prudent to delay from our usual dates – for example, tickets usually go on sale in mid-March, which just isn’t feasible under current circumstances,” Carnevali said. “But we wanted to let people know our tentative plans now, so that our sponsors, fans and friends can plan accordingly as we all wait for the COVID vaccine to become more widely available.”

    Carnevali said that AmeriServ Financial has signed on to be the event’s title sponsor in 2021.

    “This will be AmeriServ’s 26th year as title sponsor,” Carnevali noted. “That is an incredible record of corporate support, and we are grateful for AmeriServ’s ongoing commitment to our event.”

    “We, too, are enthusiastic about the possibility of being able to resume the AmeriServ Flood City Music Festival. It is truly an event that brings people of all ages together for a weekend of great music,” said Jeff Stopko, AmeriServ president and CEO. “We also recognize the amount of work that goes into planning an event of this magnitude and support our partners at the Johnstown Area Heritage Association in making whatever decision is best as the year progresses.”

    Several major music festivals that are normally held in spring or summer have announced fall dates, including New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival (moving from April to October); Lockn’ (Arrington, Va.; June to October); and Bonnaroo (Manchester, Tn.; June to September).

    “We’re certainly hopeful that daily life will be returning to normal sooner rather than later,” Carnevali said. “For example, JAHA expects to hold standalone concerts and other events this summer at Peoples Natural Gas Park, which is, of course, an outdoor venue. But those events do not require nearly as much advance planning.”

    The Johnstown Area Heritage Association (JAHA) has today announced the cancelation of its signature event, the AmeriServ Flood City Music Festival, which was to be held Jul. 31-Aug. 1, 2020 at Peoples Natural Gas Park.

    “We waited to make this decision as long as we could, hoping for more clarity on when large gatherings like concerts and festivals would be possible – but at this point, no one knows, and we cannot continue in a holding pattern,” said Ron Carnevali, festival chairman. “It is now time to let our patrons, sponsors, volunteers, and artists know that the 2020 festival is canceled. We are deeply disappointed, as we’d done a great deal of planning and were even ready to announce a lineup.”

    “As an organization that is committed to the economic vitality of the communities we serve, we too, had hoped the festival would go on as planned,” said Jeff Stopko, president and CEO of AmeriServ Financial, Inc. “However, it’s important to do what’s right to ensure the safety and protection of our residents and visitors. This pandemic has certainly proven that it is not business as usual and we must be patient and do what’s right to be able to move beyond this in a planned and orderly manner. We look forward to once again sponsoring the festival in 2021 and joining with community and JAHA leaders to bring visitors back to our great city.” 

    In addition to the potential health risks, Carnevali pointed to challenges related to sponsorship support and selling advance tickets.

    “Our sponsors are the lifeblood of the event and have been incredibly supportive, but many of them are feeling the financial effects of this crisis,” Carnevali said. “And in the current climate, it would be extremely difficult to sell advance tickets.”

    Other major local and regional events that have canceled include Thunder in the Valley (Johnstown), Three Rivers Arts Festival (Pittsburgh), Deutschtown Music Festival (Pittsburgh), Central PA Festival of the Arts (State College), Delfest (Cumberland, MD), and many others.

    If the all-clear is given for larger events, JAHA hopes to hold a concert at Peoples Natural Gas Park in September 2020.

    “We don’t yet know if this will be possible, but it’s something to hope for,” Carnevali said. “And we have every intention of bringing the festival back in 2021.”

    We appreciated these two Pittsburgh media hits this week:

    Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, July 29: “Best Concerts of the Week”

    Pittsburgh City Paper, July 30:“Johnstown music festival boasts an eclectic lineup,” Key quote: “For many Pittsburghers, sometimes traveling to events outside of the city limits can seem like too much effort. But there’s a music festival happening in Johnstown this weekend that is more than worth the trip.”

    Here’s a rundown of some of the festival press so far, with links when available! We’ll update this post as much as we can.

    Fri., July 19: “Gin Blossoms, Cowboy Mouth to headline Flood City festival in Johnstown,” a Tribune-Review preview.

    Sun., July 21: “Something for everyone: Four bands will headline AmeriServ Flood City music extravaganza,” a Tribune-Democrat preview article.

    Mon., July 22: Podcast interview with Ron Carnevali, festival chairman, on WQED-FM.

    Friday, July 26: Interview with Elias Khouri on Johnstown’s Rocky 99.

    Sat., July 27: Interview with Brownout on Pittsburgh’s 91.3 WYEP, on The Soul Show.

    Sun., July 28: “Gin Blossoms to headline weekend showcase,” a Tribune-Democrat interview with Robin Wilson of Gin Blossoms. Key quote about their show with us: ““They are going to get all of the hits, for sure,” Wilson said, “plus some our personal favorites and a bunch of the new material, too.”

    Sun, July 28: “Cowboy Mouth singer says crowd ‘in for a great time,'” a Tribune-Democrat interview with Fred LeBlanc of Cowboy Mouth. Key quote: “When you come to a Cowboy Mouth show, my goal isn’t just to entertain you or play some songs that you might have heard 20 years ago,” he said. “Our goal is to make sure everybody leaves feeling 100 times more better than they have in a long time. You don’t need a reason to celebrate, just celebrate because you are you.”

    Sunday, July 28: “Brownout combines hip-hop, Latin sounds,” a Tribune-Democrat interview with Greg Gonzalez of Brownout. Key quote: ““We have a large stage where we can move around and interact with a large group of people,” he said. “A lot of times at festivals, people aren’t there to see you, they’re there to see something else and not considered your band an option, but afterward they come away as fans.”

    Sunday, July 28: “Improvisation key to Ghost Light’s connection with audience,” a Tribune-Democrat interview with Holly Bowling of Ghost Light. Key quote: “I think there’s a desire for the songs themselves to connect with someone’s own experience – and the improvisation to let people slip away and be transported somewhere else.”

    Sunday, July 28: “Bill Kirchen looks forward to ‘familiar faces,'” a Tribune-Democrat interview. Key quote: ” It’s great to get back, and I have great affection for this festival,” he said. “I felt like I was connecting with individuals.

    It took three long days with a sturdy crew of festival volunteers and sound crew, but we have now completed the project to improve the sound quality inside the Community Foundation Oilhouse. Panels of Tectum, a special sound-absorbing material, have been installed on the walls and I-beams with a layer of insulation underneath to maximize the effect. In addition, baffles of Tectum have been hung from the ceiling.

    Our sincere thanks to all who donated and volunteered to make this permanent improvement possible!

  • Posted on 2019-07-17

    We are now seeking festival volunteers! Volunteers get in free to the festival the day they work, and are an enormous part of helping us pull this thing off. Our patrons and festival artists often comment on how friendly this festival is, and that’s due in large part to our volunteers.

    Jobs include working in the box office, festival pubs, or ID scanning station. Shifts are generally 3 hours. If you’d like to help, contact Kim Baxter via email at kbaxter [@] jaha.org, and provide her with your name, contact information, and general availability. Kim will get in touch to arrange a mutually convenient shift. Thanks!

    The music season at Peoples Natural Gas Park kicks off with a bang this Saturday evening with the Highmark Blue Cross Blue Shield Free Concert Series, featuring The National Reserve and Felix & the Hurricanes!

    The National Reserve: For nearly half a decade, The National Reserve has spent Friday nights lighting it up at Brooklyn bars, winning over fans with epic sets and a remarkable breadth of song-craft and showmanship. With their 2018 release on Ramseur Records, Motel La Grange, the band has crafted a rich and raucous collection that instantly places them among Americana’s finest with its force, directness, and performance not unlike some lost recording unearthed from the golden age of 70’s rock ‘n’ roll.

    Founded and fronted by singer-guitarist Sean Walsh, The National Reserve meld gutbucket R&B with New Orleans funk workouts, late night soul, and boozy rock ‘n’ roll to create their own timeless brand of music. The National Reserve is set to bring all the fun and fire of their fervent Friday night sets to the rest of the world, eager to pack as many folks into their late night scene as possible.

    Felix & the Hurricanes: Storming onto the local music scene 28 years ago, the three-member southern-style blues rock outfit has exemplified what it means to endure as a musical force – and what it means to be a working band.

    “Part of why the Hurricanes can be considered one of the area’s hardest-working bands is that … for them, the line between music as work and play blurred a long time ago,” said Jim Price, disc jockey for area music station Rocky 104.9 (FM) and writer for Pennsylvania Musician magazine.

    “Work and play are one and the same in this band,” he said. “They maintain their busy schedule because they love what they do. It’s easy to be a workaholic in an endeavor if you are passionate about and enjoy doing that endeavor.”

    And passionate they are. The band’s founding member and namesake, Felix Kos (guitar and vocals), Bobby Watters (drums and vocals) and Jeff Clapper (bass and vocals) – the band’s lineup since 1998 – have thrived not only on a fierce playing schedule, but also on expert musicianship, spontaneity and the fine art of showing audiences a good time.

    • Gates will open at 6:00 p.m.
    • Felix & the Hurricanes: 7:00 p.m.
    • The National Reserve: 9:00 p.m.

    The complete festival schedule for August 2-3, including performance times and stages, is now posted! You’ll notice that there is a half-hour break between many sets — this is to allow us time for brief soundchecks without disturbing other artists’ performances. In addition, we’ve brought back late-night sets, a festival tradition.

    Check it out at the schedule page, and get your 2-day passes today — early-bird pricing is good through April 30 only, and prices will go up on May 1.

    The Community Foundation Oilhouse is the original structure on the site that was developed into Peoples Natural Gas Park. It’s an industrial building, made mostly of metal and concrete, and when the park was built in 2011-2012 we added restrooms, a pavilion and stage off the back, a green room, a parking lot and more. This summer, a permanent kitchen was added. The Oilhouse is a fantastic space, and serves as the site of our smallest festival stage…but its acoustics have always been challenging, and it’s been a longtime goal to improve the acoustics in there.

    Ron Carnevali, festival chairman, was instrumental in the vision, fundraising, and development of Peoples Natural Gas Park, and took on this effort. He kicked it off with a birthday fundraiser last year on Facebook, while consulting with sound professionals and others to create a solid plan. Generous donations from Ron and from Mark Pasquerilla, Dan Thompson, Lou Mihalko, and Jim Loncella got us closer to the goal, and Ron then pushed us over the top with one more crowdfunding effort on social media.

    We are grateful for all of these donations, large and small, and are thrilled to report that installation of acoustic panels will happen next month, and should result in a vastly improved sound quality inside the building. This permanent improvement will greatly enhance this year’s festival, as well as all future events at the park. THANK YOU to all who donated!

    Here’s links to some local media coverage of the festival announcement. Be sure you’re following us on social media for updates!

    Feb. 28: Gin Blossoms to headline AmeriServ Flood City Music Festival, Tribune-Democrat: Key quote — “’It’s going to be varied; it’s going to be fun. It’s going to serve one purpose: Bring music that folks already know, and music they haven’t seen before to Johnstown,’ said Ron Carnevali, festival chair.”

    Mar. 2: Flood City Music Festival adds 13 more acts, Tribune-Democrat: Key quote — “’Together with our headliners, we think this is going to make a fantastic weekend of music,’ festival chairman Ron Carnevali said in a press release. ‘We’re also excited to bring back the late-night sets after the headliners on Friday and Saturday night, a festival tradition.'”

    Mar. 16: Gin Blossoms and others headline FCMF, Our Town: A nice interview with Ron Carnevali, giving a rundown of much of the lineup. Key quote: “‘If you’re happy with what we’re doing, the biggest vote of support you can give us is by purchasing a ticket,’ Carnevali said.”

  • Posted on 2019-03-10

    Built in 2012 by Johnstown Area Heritage Association, Peoples Natural Gas Park is a permanent home for the festival, and has served as a catalyst for more special events. Ron Carnevali, our festival chair, was instrumental in the years of fundraising and planning it took to get us that far. Now, once again through Ron’s leadership, we are planning to make significant improvements to the sound quality inside the Community Foundation Oilhouse. It’s a recycled industrial building, and the surfaces in there are hard — and the sound in there is, well, less than ideal.

    Based on the recommendation of our sound engineer and a lot of research, we believe the application of Tectum spun fiber panels strategically placed on the walls, ceiling and structural steel will go a long way to improving the sound.

    The panels will be installed by JAHA staff and volunteers. It will cost about $6,000 to get it done, and Ron has raised $5,000 already. We’re close, but could use your help! Donations of any size are greatly appreciated as we work to achieve this longtime goal.
