On Friday, August 30,  at 2 PM at Iowa City's downtown Java House, IPR Studio One's Ben Kieffer will host a special hour of "Java Blend" with The Parish Festival.

Ben Kieffer will chat with the band to find out more about their new project, and the band will also perform a live 50-minute set. This program is free and open to the public!

Featuring lead vocalist Jamey Cummins from the Hot Club of Davenport, The Parish Festival was formed in 2005 in Davenport, IA. Making up the band are Andy Rappel, Sara Ulloa, Kurt Lammers, and Jim Foster. Performing an eclectic mix of gypsy jazz, country and pop music, The Parish Festival has a distinctly original and unforgettable sound. The group had performed successfully throughout the Midwest, even landing a song on the MTV show "Skins" before taking a short hiatus. At the beginning of 2012, the group reformed in Austin, TX with a new lineup, new energy, and a new passion for their music.

This program will air Saturday, September 21 at 2p.m. Stay tuned to Java Blend!
