The Cramer Brothers Band performs free concert at Kutztown Park June 17

This Saturday evening, June 17, from 7 to 9 p.m., The Cramer Brothers Band will be returning to the Kutztown Park Bandshell stage as part of the 2017 Borough of Kutztown Concert Series in the park.

This will mark their 5th year performing, since they took the Bandshell stage in July of 2013. Every year since then, they have drawn a tremendous and energetic crowd and have been a crowd favorite and provide a high level of musical entertainment. The multi-talented musicians play contemporary country, classic country, and bluegrass music providing entertainment for all ages.

The Cramer Brothers Band is well known throughout Pennsylvania and the east coast for their vocal and phenomenal instrumental classic country songs. Randy and Ray Cramer reformed the band more than a decade ago, after their father, Ron, had formed the band more than 25 years ago, with Randy and Ray playing when they were 12 and 14. The multi-talented family has formed an excellent combination of musical and vocal talent. They originate from the Pocono Mountains area, and have become one of the premier acts in country music. They have opened for, and backed up country music sensations such as Merle Haggard, George Jones, George Strait, Willie Nelson, Ronnie Millsap, Ray Stevens, Mickey Gilley, Ricky Van Shelton, Jerry Lee Lewis, the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, and Faith Hill, to name a few.

The band consists of Ray Cramer on acoustic, electric and steel guitar and signing lead vocals; Randy Cramer on fiddle; R.J. Cramer on fiddle (following in his fathers footsteps); Bill Matlack on drums and the band’s Business Manager; Allen Roth on bass guitar and string bass; Mike Carr on the electric guitar; and Alan VanWhy on the steel guitar.
