Thank you to everyone who made NEPA Helping Nicky Sorbelli such a huge success last spring. Nicky continues to receive chemotherapy and has had frequent hospitalizations in the past months, necessitating the Sorbelli family to relocate temporarily to be closer to the hospital. As the Sorbelli family’s need is ongoing, NEPA is once again coming together for a benefit to help our friends. There is a killer line up of bands, as well as food, drinks, raffles and some surprises as well!!
Aside from the donations and raffle items that all my friends are throwing in, I will be giving up many of my personal items to put into the raffle – like a bunch of music collectibles & autographs & records, as well as a few of my guitars. An all black USA Strat, a vintage cherry Dean Gran Sport, a few work horse guitars like my Reverend Charger HBFM and Nylon string guitar, one of my Luna ukuleles and more!
The schedule for the bands is set:
3:00 : Strawberry Jam
4:00 : George Wesley
5:00 : MIZ
6:00 : Behind the Grey
7:00 : StingRay’s Blues Band
8:00 : BKOEC
9:00 : Halfway to Hell
Please drop off any donations, silent auction items, or gifts for raffles in person or mail to Waynes World Music 2611 Memorial Hwy Dallas, Pa 18612

Here is a small video clip I made specifically for a student of mine of Led Zeppelin’s “Bring It On Home'” Guitar Lesson @ Island Guitar Music Lesson Studio Key West & ONLINE.
Although you don’t have the notes leading up to this video as does my student, I hope you still find it a useful example of my style of teaching. Please ask me questions. I answer as I can.
This replica of Stevie Ray Vaughn’s 1962 Fender Strat was rebuilt with much love and skill by Butch Frable for Fat Cat Custom Guitars.
Butch has generously donated this guitar for auction at the benefit for Nicky Sorbelli, along with this gig bag, generously donated by Jack Gretz of Northeast Music Center.
We are still accepting donations for the raffles if you are able to help!
HELP Nicky Sorbelli my 9yr old son whom we just discovered has T Lymphoblastic Lymphoma (cancer) & we badly need everyone to HELP & PRAY & SHARE.
So far he is responding well to treatment. Treatment plan for now is Thurs – Saturday in Miami children’s hospital every week for next seven months. Then once a month for three years. So it’s going to be a long strange

Portable Lightweight Battery or AC powered 4 channel Guitar/Vocal AMP with speaker mounts included and attached!!!
This amp is already fitted with the mounting bracket so you can mount it up on any standard speaker stand!
Also cut to sit on the floor in two positions to better suit your performing needs – it can be tilted on the floor and used as or double as the monitor – OR sit at the normal 45 degree flat on ground, to take advantage of propelling more bass when necessary!!
