Pepper Street Band's schedule is filling up quickly so don't wait!  Contact Dr Dave Houseknect or Don Bastian, on Facebook and get Pepper Street Band for your club, establishment or event.



Welcome to TPSB (The Pepper Street Band) v. 2018

As of the first of the year Don Bastian will be stepping down off the throne and devoting more time to his personal life, family and new dog, Libby. He will still be filling in occasionally just to keep his chops up. We want to wish him the best.

Now for the big news.... (drum roll please LOL), Rich Cummings will be the new Pepper Street Band drummer. Rich has been a drumming force in the area for many years, playing with a number of local bands including Black and Blues, The Lynn and Farley Five just to name a few. His style is as eclectic as the the Pepper Street song list. We're looking forward to his percussionistic stylings and know you won't be disappointed either. Sandy's been working on her bar chords, so you may see her playing some acoustic guitar on some songs as well as her ever increasing songlist. Pete, Dave and Bob will be trying to keep up. Might break out some acoustic songs between sets in the near future just as a sidenote. We've added 4 new songs in the last month with many more on the board for consideration.

With great sadness we say goodbye to one of Pepper Streets' biggest groupies, Marlayne Swartz. She was the younger sister of Melissa Swartz, Dave's girlfriend. Marlayne was always smiling, dancing and loved our version of White Wedding and getting hugs from Pete. Too soon gone, but will always be remembered. R.I.P.

Shut Up and Dance with Us Tour 2018

Friday we are back at the Danville Moose Club from 8:00 - 11:00 on Friday bringing the dance music most clubs only dream about. Then Saturday we are at the South Williamsport Moose Club from 8:00 - 11:00 on Saturday. Been quite a while since we rocked that club, hope they can handle being peppered! Looking forward to seeing everyone out and about!

This summer we will be at Torrey Ridge Winery in NY, just above Watkins Glen 7, yes, 7 times. This is a not to miss stop with a beautiful view of Seneca Lake. Great wine, ciders, and meads. Can't go wrong, great food, great drink, great dancing music, and Dr Dave Houseknecht hairless legs! Whooooooo!

Just in............. Pepper Street on the Hiawatha, June 10, from 6:00 - 8:00. And it's Sandy's Bday! Watch out the Tea flavored vodka stock levels will fall drastically that day.

Pepper Street at the Rally on the River in Northumberland on June 5, from 8:00 - 11:00. Whispering Oaks Vineyard, Sunbury 2:00 - 5:00. Sounds like fun!
