Schreiberpalooza moves to May, adds new bands for 2018

April 9, 2018

Local musicians The Mama Tried Band, Stu Huggens and the Black Hats, The Steven Courtney Band and MOE Blues will take the stage at Clair Brothers in Manheim, from 5-11 p.m. Saturday, May 12, to play for a great cause: supporting therapy services for children with disabilities and developmental delays here in central Pennsylvania. Stu Huggens is a veteran on the regional country music circuit who will bring the Black Hats to Palooza for the first time. Steven Courtney had a long career performing live music for kids, and now he’s building an equally enthusiastic following with rootsy Americana sound for grownups. Mama Tried and MOE Blues are Palooza veterans.

Schreiberpalooza is sure to be a fun, affordable, laid-back night out. Admission tickets cost $20 in advance and $25 the night of the event. Tickets also can be purchased online for $20 at A cash bar (wine and beer) will be available that evening, with donated wine from Waltz Vineyards Estate Winery and craft beer selections from Mad Chef Craft Brewing, St. Boniface Craft Brewing Co. and Wacker Brewing Co. Schreiber will also have donated beer from The Beer and Beverage Shoppe. All of the alcohol service will be coordinated by The Traveling Tap.

The event will also feature a wide array of food, provided by Commonwealth Kitchen and Café and JoBoy’s Brewpub. All proceeds from the evening will be donated to Schreiber Pediatric.

This will be the first year presenting the event in May after a half-dozen years in September.
