Heavily inspired and influenced by acts from the 50s, 60s, and 70s, The Munoz Brothers seek to recreate and adapt the music of the past with a unique personal twist. Comprised of brothers Ivan Munoz (bass, vocals) and Damian Munoz (guitar, vocals), the acoustic duo aims to bridge the gap between “the contemporary” and “the classic” through their instrumentation and vocal harmonies.
Maury's old bandmate Lamar Snyder dropped by & the two reconnected on some of their favorite old songs. Lamar was invited to sit in with Maury & Tim at a local gig, but a snowstorm canceled those plans. Oh well ... plan B.
Maury installed a K&K Pure Miniin Payne's Bourgeois guitar, and when Payne dropped by to pick it up ... we talked him into playing an original tune for us. Then he taught Maury a Tom Petty tune, for good measure. Sounded great, Payne - thanks for dropping by!
Dan "Couser" Crowley dropped by to pick up his Custom Shop Martin deep body 000-28C. Maury installed a Trance Audio Amulet M for him, and when he came to collect, Maury talked him into playing a tune. Thanks for dropping by - you sounded great!
John Hall and Maury have been friends since they both started their own businesses back in 2003. The two met at the very first UMGF Nazfest at Nazareth Boro Park, and became fast friends. Sounded great, John ... thanks for dropping by!

Autumn Brew has an open invitation to drop by Maury's Music anytime ... but Maury couldn't pass up the chance to see them live! Greg & Leanne Kendig have a sound all their own, and we were excited to get some of their set on video!
J-Mac, Maury and Tim have been friends for years. Maury & Tim work both as a duo and 4-piece band, The Shellshocked Churchhills. J-Mac & Maury used to work together in The J-Mac Trio, with Becky & the Beasts' drummer Larry Choley. The Thrill is not gone.
