Front Porch Music Series: Jacob Vanko & Rob Oliver

Wednesday, May 15, 2019

The Front Porch Music series features local bands offering a taste of various musical genres. This week, singer-songwriters Rob Oliver and Jacob Vanko join talents to perform original songs from their upcoming album releases. They will share their time singing and backing each other up on guitar and harmonica for a night of their unique blend of Americana and blues music. Rob Oliver is an instrumentalist, vocalist, and songwriter who specializes in guitar and harmonica in styles varying from classic rock to rhythm & blues and everything in between. Jacob Vanko, an old soul at heart, found a sense of comfort in performing and writing. Learning to play blues and folk with his father while being influenced by classic rock and grunge made for a unique evolution in writing, composition and storytelling. Beer and wine will be available for purchase. Proceeds support the museum.
