State In The Real – Penn State Music Scene

Meet Pete and Duff, and watch them take on The Darkhorse Tavern TONIGHT!

It’s Wednesday night and you want to have a good time. Your friends are ready to go too.

Suddenly the names Pete and Duff pop into your minds. You don’t know why, but you like it.

I’ll tell you why you like it.

Most Wednesday nights, Pete and Duff grace the stage of the Darkhorse Tavern in downtown State College. The charming duo pumps out music that can be categorized as “acoustic with energy”. They cover current artists like Dave Matthews, John Mayer, Jack Johnson, and Mumford and Sons, but put new spins on the classics too. With a relaxed, lackadaisical vibe, their focus is playing good music with happy vibes.

It all started when Alex Duff’s late night jam sessions at Penn State Altoona attracted not only the police, but fellow musician, Pete Crowley. They started off making the Altoona party scene just a little more awesome. Pete and Duff say that their biggest challenge starting out as local musicians was finding venues to in which to play. However, the current students at Penn State Main Campus made their public debut at the Dark Horse Tavern and The Phyrst in downtown State College this year.

Don’t make the mistake of thinking their tour stops in Happy Valley. Pete and Duff are working on releasing an EP this year, and plan to continue their musical career post-graduation (perhaps taking the Pittsburgh bar scene by storm)! But for now, look out for them in our very own State College TONIGHT at 10:30 at the Darkhorse Tavern!
