The Atlanta Cafe Band will perform on the Green for Meet Me in Morristown, Aug. 28, 2014.

If you wander onto the historic Morristown Green tonight, Aug. 28, 2014, you will see a band.

Who are these guys, anyway?

The short answer is, the Atlanta Café Band is among 42 entertainment acts that will be arrayed downtown for the third installment of Meet Me in Morristown.  Some 33 businesses also are participating in the monthly sidewalk fair, which is a joint presentation of Morris Arts and the Morristown Partnership.   A map is below.

Here’s a more detailed answer, from band member and Morristown native Charles Ohlweiler:

We are a Morris, Warren and Sussex County band that was conceived about 20 years ago. The name is derived from our love and commitment to Southern-based music, the Blues, Country and Swamp music. Many of our influences are Stevie Ray Vaughan, Chet Atkins, New Orleans artists and many of the Jazz and Blues greats and even some contemporary artists.

Our members consist of four hardworking individuals:

Wallace Wrede: Bass player, awesome guitar-picker and singer. Wallace has an amazing family heritage in music. His father was an incredible guitar player and writer. His roots are in Morris County.

Bobby Vnencak: Our resident percussionist. One of the finest drummers ever produced. Bob has been playing it all for a while. Blues, Jazz and Country. Bob is Whippany-born and resides in Sussex County.

Paul Sobolewski: Our newest edition. Paul plays smoking guitar and sings quite well. Paul is also a lifetime Morris County resident, who has run the gamut of musical genres. He and his wife Kate have an amazing duo and perform regularly. He may be our newest member, but we have known Paul for many years and our respect for him is very high.

Charlie “O” Ohlweiler: Singer, guitar player is Morristown-born with family still in town. Charlie’s love for the music shows in his singing, be it belting out some blues or twanging some country swing.

We are proud to be able to perform in Morristown and look forward to it! I’m sure we will see many folks we grew up with, in the town we all know so well.
