Guitar Jam IV: And the winners are ...
PITTSFIELD -- Classic country and western, classic blues, classic rock and roll.
The four winners in the fan voting for Guitar Jam IV have ensured that May 19 at the Colonial Theatre will be a classic evening.

Each of the 10 local bands in the poll easily topped 100 votes in the two rounds of Facebook voting. A total of 5,096 fans voted.
"We're thrilled and excited," said Garrett Lechowski, singer and guitarist for top vote-getter Who Are You. "We think this will be a great time."
"I'm thrilled and honored," said Dona Fed erico, lead singer for Spurs USA. "We can't wait. This is such a great event. Congratu lations to Who Are You. They're a great band."
