Jill West and Blues Attack are taking the stage at the 2010 ‘Music on the Mon’ concert series

The Brownsville Area Revitalization Corporation (BARC) has invited Jill West and Blues Attack to perform at this year’s Music on the Mon concert series. The performance will take place on August 8th at the Nemacolin Castle stage in Brownsville and will last from 6-8pm. This concert is free to the public and welcomes all fans to attend.

This Pittsburgh-based blues band is best known for their fierce and blood-pumping performances, which always seem to perfectly compliment their original style of hard-edged blues. Jill West, the lead singer of the group, is famous for her powerful vocals and fearless attitude. Her striking confidence radiates in each song she performs. West’s band mates of Blues Attack also have their own special approach for dazzling any crowd. With two talented guitarists who thrive in any limelight, a keyboard player with an impressive majestic ability and a dynamic drummer whose beats generate instant chills, Blues Attack provides the perfect balance of flair in order to please every audience.

Although the group has found themselves performing all over the tri-state area and have even opened for an array of musical artists across the nation, Jill West and Blues Attack seem to always make their way back home to areas in and around the big steel city.

The Music on the Mon began seven years ago with a partnership between the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts, Nemacolin Castle and BARC. BARC is a 501c3 non-profit organization whose mission is to achieve economic development through historic preservation, heritage tourism, outdoor recreation, community stewardship, education, youth advancement and the arts.

This concert series is supported by the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts, a state agency, through its regional arts funding partnership, Pennsylvania Partners in the Arts (PPA). State government funding for the arts depends upon an annual appropriation by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and support from the National Endowment for the Arts, a federal agency. PPA is administered in this region by the Community Foundation of Fayette County.
