About the Ann Kerstetter Band...

Ann Kerstetter exploded onto the Central Susquehanna Valley music scene in 1969. At the tender age of 16 she was the lead singer for the Sunbury based “Crosstown Bus”. At that time, Ann was the only female singer to front a rock band in the area. Ann and the Crosstown Bus performed the Harrisburg, Lancaster and Central Susquehanna Valley until 1983.

Upon returning to the music scene in 2007, Ann teamed up with a “Who’s Who” of Pennsylvania blues and jazz musicians to form “The Ann Kerstetter Band”. The Ann Kerstetter Band competed and won the Billtown Blues Society IBC Challenge in 2008.

The Band went on to open the 20th Billtown Blues Festival and were named a semifinalist at the 2009 IBC Blues Challenge in Memphis, Tennessee. In the same year, The Ann Kerstetter Band released “Classics” a collection of blues and jazz favorites for which Ann and the band received “a thumbs up” review from Blues Revue. Ann’s second CD, “Duke Street Diary” is a collection of original compositions by Ann and band mates. “Duke Street Diary” was named an IBC Semifinalist for Best Self-Produced CD of 2010.

Always the passionate singer, at one with her music, and driven to perform, Ann performs with The Ann Kerstetter Band featuring Bryan Noaker on Guitar and vocals, Bill Stetz on Bass and vocals, Jack Lawton on drums. These 3 have been regional musical standouts for over 30 years. Ann, Bryan, Bill and Jack combine their varied musical talents offering tight individual and harmonious vocals along with their audience engaging performances for an evening of original compositions coupled with their fresh interpretations on blues and rock classics.
