WHAT Mike Weyrauch in concert

If Johnny Cash and the crew in outfits like Pearl Jam, Of A Revolution and Breaking Benjamin all teamed up to form a band, their music would reflect singer-songwriter Mike Weyrauch's tunes.
Weyrauch, of Dover, is a self-taught musician who's been developing his music for the last 14 years. The acoustic-rockers attraction to a variety of genres has spilled over into his present sound.
Weyrauch recently released his second EP on iTunes titled "Meaning Behind the Sessions." The project is an acoustic adventure with skilled guitar picking, sultry vocals and lyrics solely based on Weyrauch's personal experiences and beliefs.

At the age of 5, Glenn Govot knew who he wanted to be when he grew up.
So he played in the school marching band, orchestras and later picked up a guitar. Govot hasn't looked back since.
Now as an adult, the singer-songwriter is living his dream, wooing audiences in Florida where he's based at. And he makes it easy for listeners to dig him thanks to his guitar skills and engaging vocals.
Govot, who's released three albums, will bring sunny vibes from Florida to the First State when he gigs at Fraizer's Restaurant tonight.
