The World's Original WDVR Heartlands Hayride radio barn dance & country music show


New Jersey Corn Pickers are a Philadelphia area bluegrass and acoustic music band that began in the summer of  2010, to begin recording the songs they’d been writing individually.  They've been honing their chops playing clubs, coffee houses, halls and festivals all over Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Delaware, Connecticut, Maryland and Maine. They're currently writing and recording their second CD, due for release in 2014.      www.jerseycornpickers.com


The Calaboose Cronies A country and western band that looks suspiciously familiar.  These boys are hardened music types who may be on the run, so we suggest you enjoy their talents while still in town.  We’ll keep you safe, but can’t guarantee you won’t be overcome by their marvelous mellifluous melodies: Bronco Billy,  Joltin’ Jimmy,  Kickin’ Kyle, Badlands Ben, Arizona Al.  As fresh as the morning frost!


Chris Val, veteran  old-school  country  star,  says  he can't  stay  away.  Chris  has  performed with  Tex Ritter,  Ernest Tubb  and  many  others. This fondly remembered veteran of Trenton radio, has  recorded  for  Starday  and  many other  labels,  and  continues  to  thrill  crowds throughout Delaware Valley.   And he can yodel !!


Wes Combs No hay grows under this boy’s feet!!  He’s the leader of the Rhythm Jumpers band, so you know you won’t fall asleep when he’s on duty.  Wes performs with our band tonight and we’re ready to push out the walls with some effervescent effusiveness (but it’ll still be country!)


Steve Lezan Another son returns from the old days of the Hayride’s beginnings.  Steve has lived in this area all his life and first performed with the ever-popular Schooly Mountain Ramblers. He loves to write songs, having many to his credit, both Bluegrass and Country.  Tonight, he’ll be the quintessential country cowboy of yore.  Welcome Home!!


Chuck Pierman's homespun humor and lyrical comedy provide a welcome respite to the mix as he takes a break from his Delaware Township deer and groundhog farm. He says the deer have headed for greener pastures and the woodchucks are trying to dry out:  he’s ready for some fun and merriment.


Bill Brandon, our masterful band leader and organizer, reflects star-shine on the barn dance floor as he fronts the Hayride band and keeps the boys on their toes, including these fine musicians.


Al Kessel,  master musician, promoter, producer, publicist, singer and a talented writer.

Ben Lawson, master of the pedal steel, always evokes a chuckle, great musical talent.

Jim Thompson Mr. Personality: always on base thumping the bass , except when hooking bass or in relief

Kyle Miholics keeps the beat with some very tasteful percussion work.
