About the event

The Probables hail from the rolling hills of western NY,  where their distinctive “Folkana-Roots-Rock” brand of Americana music  was born in 2016. Since that time, they have built a devoted,  multi-demographic fanbase deriving from the strength of their fiery live  performances. Formed initially as a string band fronted by veteran  performer and songwriter Steve Johnson, the band’s sound has since  expanded to include a powerhouse rhythm section consisting of drummer  Jeff Tripoli and electric bassist Jassen Wilber. Rounding out the lineup  is mandolin maestro and vocalist Adam Mckillip, and  multi-instrumentalist Matt Gronquist on fiddle, electric guitar and  Hammond Organ. The result is a multi-faceted soundscape infused with  elements of Folk, Rock, Reggae, Bluegrass, and Funk, with Johnson’s  introspective and infectious songwriting serving as the unifying  element. The band has recorded four studio albums to-date.

The group’s distinctive name was the result of an early  exchange involving the Great Blue Heron Music Festival in Sherman, NY.  Hoping to make a debut at the annual festival, but having not yet chosen  a name, the festival organizer said, "l'll probably book you, so I  guess we should just call you The Probables’.” The rest is history...The Probables have shared the stage with The Wailers, Langhorne Slim, and 10,000 Maniacs, to name a few.
