Members of the Doug McMinn Blues Band include: (standing, from left) Sean Farley, John "JT" Thompson, Bill Stetz and Joel B. Vincent, and band founder Doug McMinn (sitting, front).

The third and last concert in the free Saturday afternoon outdoor series will feature the five-member Doug McMinn Blues Band on Saturday, Oct. 17 at 3 p.m.

The concert will be on the outdoor stage on the Central Avenue side of the Deane Center for the Performing Arts at 104 Main Street in Wellsboro. It is free and open to the public.

With an eclectic repertoire that McMinn describes as "Big Tent Blues," the band will play the gamut from Chicago to Texas blues to New Orleans rhythm and blues, mixing their original songs with modern and classic covers by famous artists, such as T-Bone Walker, Professor Longhair and Howlin’ Wolf.

This is the band’s first performance at the Deane Center and their fifth in 2020. Members are: Doug McMinn who plays guitar, saxophone and clarinet; John "JT" Thompson on keyboards; Sean Farley on guitar; Bill Stetz on electric bass guitar; and Joel B. Vincent on drums. McMinn, Thompson and Farley are lead singers and write tunes for the band.

The band has played at numerous top-drawer venues throughout North Central Pennsylvania, including the Elk Creek Cafe, the Bullfrog Brewery, the Berwick Brewing Co. and in Selinsgrove for the Rudy Gelnett Summer Music Series.

The Doug McMinn Blues Band was founded in 2011, when Bonnie Tallman invited McMinn to select an all-star group of regional musicians to close the show that year at the Billtown Blues Festival in Williamsport. Tallman, a Tioga County native who now lives in Muncy, is one of six people who founded the blues festival in 1990.

McMinn, widely known as one of the most flexible players in the West Branch area, plays and sings in popular groups like Lumpy Gravy, Black ‘n’ Blues, The AAA Blues Band, The Sirens and as a duo with Hannah Bingman. Before COVID-19, he led his jazz band in monthly gigs at the Bullfrog Brewery in Williamsport, and played solo guitar-vocal gigs in towns from Coudersport to Millheim and Berwick. He lives seven miles outside of Williamsport in Balls Mills, Pa.

For the other front line spots, McMinn chose Farley of Williamport and Thompson of Bellefonte.

Farley is one of the busiest musicians in the area, both as a solo performer and as co-leader of the Lynn and Farley 5. He made his name with Black-n-Blues, a Williamsport-based band, and The EG Kight Band based in Georgia. Farley also has a thriving, custom guitar and repair shop in Williamsport.

Thompson, a standout keyboard player and singer in the State College area, performs solo and with a number of bands including his group The Denicats, Natascha and The Spyboys, The Gill Street Band and The AAA Blues Band.

For the rhythm section, McMinn selected Stetz of Sunbury, one of the region’s top guitar bassists who has played with Queen Bee and the Blue Hornets, Garcia Grass and The Earthtones, and Joel B. Vincent of Williamsport, a top drummer who performs with the Gabe Stillman Band based in Williamsport and The Ann Kerstetter Band based in Northumberland.

Every member of the group has been a semifinalist in the International Blues Challenge in Memphis, Tennessee, and has decades of blues experience.

For their performance at the 2011 Billtown Blues Festival, the band was called "Doug McMinn's 30th Anniversary Blues Band" and played music to honor McMinn's three decades in the bar band business. The rapturous response from the festival audience inspired the band to book other shows and record a well-received live CD.

Since then, the group has entertained crowds throughout the North Central Pennsylvania Region. McMinn began playing in the summer of 1980 and is now celebrating his 40th anniversary as a musician.

Bring lawn chairs and sit on the lawn in front of the outdoor stage or on Central Avenue, which will be closed to traffic to provide space to allow people room for dancing and social distancing.

This show is weather dependent and may start a little earlier. Visit, email, or call 570-724-6220 for more information.


The Nessmuk Rod and Gun Club is hosting three running deer shoots outdoors from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. on Sundays, Oct. 18, Nov. 8 and Nov. 22, rain or shine. The shoots will be at the club's outdoor range at 4646 Route 287, 6.5 miles south of Wellsboro in Delmar Township. Club members and the public are invited to participate.

The shooter with the highest score in the last round of the day at each of the three running deer shoots will win a frozen turkey. "I thought that might add a little interest to this year's running deer shoots," said Ray Rowland, organizer.

A special round for youth, 17 and under, will also be held during each of the three Sunday running deer shoots. "The youth with the highest score will win a gift certificate from Cooper's Sporting Goods in Mansfield or from Barbers Sporting Goods Store in Sabinsville," Rowland said.

The running deer paper target is fixed to a four-foot by three-foot wooden frame that is mounted on wheels on a cable. The target is pulled along the cable from left to right at 100 yards from the shooting area. Only one shooter is allowed to be on the range per pass. Safety gear and eye and ear protection are required to participate. 

A sign-up will be held before each round of shooters.

The fee for youth 17 and under, and for adults, 18 and older, is $2 per pass with a limit of two shots per pass. The fee will be split with 50 percent going to the shooter with the highest score per round and the other 50 percent to the club.

For more information, call Ray Rowland at 1-607-857-4631.

Europe Struggles With Major Virus Surge

Europe Struggles With Major Virus Surge

It’s back. Infections surged this week across Europe with Italy, Germany and France recording their highest-ever new daily cases. Parts of Italy were locked down and new mask mandates — even outdoors — have been imposed. With Paris a “maximum alert zone,” bars are closed and musical performances banned. The German capital, previously spared high infection rates, is now a national hot spot and stricter controls are being considered. But Europeans have gotten used to recent freedoms, so leaders have been reluctant to act, especially as death rates are lower than during the first wave of infections in the spring.
