Cincinnati Creek Band Bio 2023

Where can you hear toe tapping melodies,  tight bluegrass harmonies, and original melodies all with some good fun thrown in?  Why at a Cincinnati Creek performance of course!

Cincinnati Creek has been performing in Central NY since 2008.  This group is comprised of seasoned band members that have been entertaining audiences in various groups for decades.   Lori Thompson writes songs that are often inspired by  local historical happenings.  Some of her music can be heard on the local TV program, Mohawk Valley Living.   She also has recorded 2 cds of original material available at shows.  Lori sings lead and harmony vocals, and she plays the mandolin and guitar. Lori got her start playing in her father’s bluegrass band,  The Sutton’s in 1982.  After moving to Oneida County, she joined the bluegrass band Stump Hollow in 1994. In 2008, she formed Cincinnati Creek with fellow performers Chris Pepe and Gary Dygert.

Chris Pepe plays the banjo and sings bass vocals in the band. In addition, he is also the sound engineer. Chris was drawn to the banjo after attending the Fox Family  Bluegrass Festival.

Cathy Martin is the third founding member of the “Creek.” She sings lead and adds the high harmony.  Cathy also  keeps the beat with her bass fiddle.  Cathy had prior experience singing in the Remsen Community choir and playing piano.

The newest member of the band, Joe Rowlands, joined in 2021, but he has been performing in Central NY for some time.  Joe is a founder of Rattlin’ Bog, a group that specializes in Irish music.  He has also performed with the barbershop group Nothing Fancy. Joe plays harmonica and guitar for Cincinnati Creek and sings lead and harmony vocals.

Cincinnati Creek also performs yearly as part of The Steuben Players at their annual benefit dinner theatre for the Remsen Steuben Historical Society.

All in all, Cincinnati Creek offers a unique musical concert  that is entertaining and fun.
