Everyone at my bar loves Latimore Sky. They play all the crowd favorites plus more!!
Very easy to deal with, booked them many months ahead of time for our party and they showed up ready to roll (can't say that for previous bands we had) . Played good sets, rocking covers and originals were good too. A lot of fun, got everyone involved, good feedback from all our friends. Will def have them back.

What to Expect
When you see or hire Latimore Sky, you will get a top notch performing band, dedicated to make the show as memorable as we can through sight, sound, performance and professionalism.
Latimore Sky has an extensive light show to help fill the room with visual artistry. Our light show is good for any indoor venue, capable of capturing the audiences attention.
Our thoughts on sound is control and clarity. We believe music should be heard and felt, but we also believe that someone should be able to have a conversation in the back of the room if they want too. That comes from control and clarity. Control your volume, louder does not mean better. Clarity, control noise, clear vocals, and controlled drum volume (for smaller venues we offer an electric drums set to control the sound even better) allows for better sound and entertainment for you patrons.
Performance to Latimore Sky is the quality of musicianship, stage presence, sound and showmanship. With Latimore Sky you will get everything we have in every song.
Professionalism is key in any business, be it plumbing, banking or running a band. Professionalism to us is, timeliness, communication, courtesy, integrity and responsibility. Which is exactly what you will get if you work with Latimore Sky.
We are "good-ole boys", we are appreciative of your business, your patrons/clients, and will be respectful to you and your property. We will say please and thank you.
Latimore Sky is a rock and roll/outlaw country band from the York, PA area. We are driven musicians. This can be easily seen during our shows by the passion and emotion we exude on stage. We love music, it's in us, it's who we are.
We all come from different musical backgrounds, but some of our common influences are bands like The Who, Pink Floyd, Allman Brothers, The Grateful Dead, Nirvana, Pearl Jam, SRV, Cash, Haggered, Jennings, Hank and many many more. With our diverse taste of music and styles, Latimore Sky has a sound all of it's own, yet familiar enough make you feel right at home.
Latimore Sky is led by front man, PJ Groft.
PJ has been preforming since '98. He is a singer/song writer/guitarist/entertainer. PJ has amazing vocals, powerful and well controlled. He is unbelievable presence and is always able to get the crowd engaged. With a great sense of humor and very good wits, PJ is able to keep the crowed entertained, be it battering back and forth, crowd sing-alongs or with his incredible vocals.
Rhyan Hoover is the heart beat of Latimore Sky. Playing the drums since the 7th grade, Rhyan has developed a style all of his own. Rhyan will mix his playing with the bassist, lead guitar or vocal rhythms depending on what he feels accents the song at that moment.
Mike Stem- Bass Guitar
Mike Stem, from York Springs, PA started playing bass just out of high school and wasted no time joining his first band Brandenburg, where he learned the writing and recording thing and also the love of it.
This was a 10 year journey writing and producing the album 'Keeper of Time' before moving on to a solo/partner project creating the band Vertical Descent where he had the opportunity to write a more personal album 'Brilliant Ignorance'.
He has also played in various cover bands; Ramped, One Foot In, and Blind Fate.
Mike's love of music expands to just about every type there is. His playing style always seems to pull him to progressive funk and applies a emotional soul stealing drive behind the cool guys with the guitars but also stays lock step with that little bass drum beater to create a driven collaborative wonder.
Sid Snyder is one of the greatest guitar players in the area. Sid knows his way around the fret board forwards and backwards, blindfolded. With his ability to mix his knowledge of rock, blues, country and jazz in to a song where and when it fits, Sid makes every song his own (even when playing it exactly like the original).
