There are some great people in Binghamton and I really love this town. Porchfest is just one example of the amazing community of artists and supporters we have here. There are some superheroes like Chris Bodnarczuk, the event organizer. Then there’s Earl, our host, and all the hosts who share their homes and lawns for this event. There’s the musicians who come together with each other, share equipment and support. And there’s the amazing music fans in Binghamton. None of this is worthwhile without you.

Not only is there a surprising amount of music fans, there is an abundance of talent in our town. If I’m not mistaken there were about 150 acts officially registered for the event. I wish I could have seen so many of them myself, but Honker was happy to provide and run sound at our porch where there was no shortage of great music. What matters most is that things run smooth and people have fun. Internet and social media is great but sharing vibrations with people in the same physical space is what I live for. Believe in music.

Here’s what one local fan had to say about Honker’s set:
Lot of excellent acts at Porchfest. But, Honker was straight up 🔥🔥🔥. Can’t wait to catch another show. Props to Lomo and Jeff, and their guitarist, who I haven’t met. Unique, musically interesting, and well executed – really enjoyed the performance!!!💥🤛🏼

We say DANG! thank you very much – we’ve been practicing.
