Up Til 4
Up Til 4
.. Up 'Til 4 started out as a trio, but is now a full 5 piece band (6 when Jammin' Paul can make it). They cover music from the folk/rock singer/song writer era, plus a few originals. Influences include Crosby, Stills, Nash, Neil Young, Grateful Dead, Jackson Browne, James Taylor, Carol King, and other classic rock music are all on the menu at any gig.

Karyn Morgan has performed in the Akron and Cleveland area with a variety of bands. Rock music with Contraband, Celtic music with Liafail, acoustic music with Rivers Edge. She also has two original CD's and a host of recording credits. Karyn has opened for national talents Stevie Nicks and Lord of the Dance. Karyn continues to perform in other musical collaborations, most recently folk female trio, Martha's Mistake.

“John Weniger has brought his talents to Up Til 4 and has played with many musicians over the past 25 or so years in the northeast Ohio area covering the likes of Grateful Dead, Jimmy Buffet, Jackson Browne, James Taylor. John has also written many original songs. John still plays out with his long time collaborator, and partner in musical crime, Gerry Simon as Weniger/Simon a duo that has endured for some 25 plus years in the North East Ohio music scene.

Carl Sweigert has played in the Kent area with rock and blues band Ed Head, and folk country Blue Dog String Band. Muscians often refer to him as the “petulant rock star”. Difficult to get along with but valuable to a band.

” Paul has played everywhere, with everyone, knows every song, and has been called Garcia and Santa Claus in the same breath. Prior and current bands include Iron Henry, Roller, Superstition, and The Cordobas. Paul is a founding member of the band, but recently health conditions have moved him into more of an alumni role.
