THE HELP AND THE HANDS       back to GALLERY EVENTS for upcoming Jazz      musicians  


The Help and the Hands, 2015

"Brian “Mr. Book" Feltner grew up in Akron, OH before traveling extensively for school and work studying languages. Steve "The Saint" Bennett is from Canton, OH, and pursuing a Masters degree in architecture. Both Brian and Steve perform with a variety of instruments and are well versed in multiple languages. “The Help” was formed in December of 2012 after a fateful meeting in a downtown wine bar, and together they combine Balkan- Gypsy/Klezmer flavor with Blues and Folk. They recently released their second album, "Prime" at a sold out Civic Theater performance.

Catherine 'Sim' Petersilge and her fiddle first shared a stage with The Help in the winter of 2014. Sim has been a fixture at live performances ever since, and she appears for the first time recorded on Prime. Since joined by her sister, Christine "Page" Petersilge, contributing her cello, "The Help and The Hands" debuted for a packed house at the legendary Tangier in Akron, OH in January 2015. Hailing from the Cuyahoga Valley, the string slaying sisters lend a Scottish flavor to The Help's gypsy tones and may yet bring a few more instruments to the mix. The quartet is preparing to release their first music video and full-length album this fall."

"The HeLp likes making music that defies categorization. When people ask, I'll tell them 'You kind of really just have to hear it,' even though we've been called gypsy blues and a number of other things." says Feltner. "Pirate tom Waits from Eastern Europe is another one," says Bennett. Brian Feltner admits he's a bit Tom Waits fan, but says he didn'tset out ot sound like him. "I kind o accidentally discovered that that voice was inside of me. I ahd a bad cough and just went and played a show like normal, and it came out that way and kind of stuck. And now it's become kind of the trademark of the group."
