We Want To Hear About Your Favorite State College Bar Bands

For generations, bands and musical acts have rocked State College. From local groups like My Hero Zero to big wigs like the Jonas Brothers, music has taken center stage when it comes to State College’s nightlife.

Local State College bands have made appearances at bars old and new, such as The Skeller, Champs, Zeno’s, The Phyrst, and Café 210 West. Some may have moved on to bigger and better things in the music world.

Amid the coronavirus pandemic, though, catching a bar band show is pretty rare. Sorely missing the nightlife scene, we want to hear about your favorite groups and learn more about what they’re doing now.

Please fill out the form below to let us know who you jammed out to in Happy Valley to have your favorite musicians potentially featured on our site.
