Dave Lippman and Jay Mankita

Friday – June 17 – 7:30 pm

Audiences of all ages and hair styles have thrilled to the post-corporate comic stylings of satirical songster Dave Lippman. The 99% troubadour (he’s not yet complete) and investigative songwriter afflicts the complacent, takes the aidave w guitarr out of the windbags of the week, de-distorts history, and updates worn-out songs with parody and thrust. Sample tunes: All We Are Saying is End Corporate Crime, I Hate Wal-Mart, Alberta Tarbillies, Brother Can You Spare a Diamond, Sgt. Pepper Spray…

Specializing in passionate, comedic original songs and unsingable singalongs set to familiar tunes, he presents a swirl of multimedia images so no one will bother watching him grow older onstage. It’s a multimedia romp through recent generations of social justice activism, told through stories of glories, near wins, and windmills tilted at. Remember the hard times, fight for the better ones – in harmony!  www.davelippman.com

Jay Mankita is a Northeast-based Americana songwriter and recording artist. A celebrated songwriter, innovative guitarist, and upbeat, often hilarious touring performer, who truly engages, inspires and entertains.

A unique and refreshing talent, well off the beaten path, yet still strongly rooted in folk and acoustic traditions, Jay’s songs move with positive grace, from the sublime and beautiful, through the topical and political, to the humorous and absurd, leaving audiences enriched and inspired.     www.jaymankita.com
