The Here and Now are an acoustic duo consisting of Lyndsay Mahalis on vocals and Donald McGettigan on guitar and vocals based out of the Fox Chase neighborhood of Philadelphia. They perform covers and original compositions. McGettigan a self-taught guitar player combines with Mahalis whose background in stage/theater give them a unique sound with beautiful harmonies.
The duo has played a number of festivals as well as touring the local Philly scene at venues such as Bernie’s Pub, The Broken Goblet, Joe’s Coffee House, Hard Rock Café, Lickety Split, Vice Coffee, and The Grape Room.
Jay Breslin of Rock on Philly described a performance by the duo, “The Here & Now put on a great set filled with originals and covers, including a spot-on rendition of “Little Talks” by Of Monsters and Men . . . we heard beautiful harmonies that made for a truly heartfelt set.”
Lindsay Mahalis said it just seemed natural to form a duo with Don. “We were in a band for awhile together and the more time we spent performing and playing music together, the more we realized we were heading in the same direction. We have nearly the same exact taste in music. We can usually hear something the other will love. On top of that, we have a really nice vocal blend. Our tones are complementary to the other which makes for some really nice harmonies. The more apparent that became, the more we realized it should be spotlighted. We soon realized we could make this work and become something people would hopefully want to see”. Mahalis has a simple desire as the duo moves forward, she says, “We’d love to play as much as possible, hopefully earning enough money along the way to record some of our original songs.”
If you would like to see the duo play over the next 3 months you can find them at a Toys for Tots benefit at Eggs Nest Inn on November 15th, and a likely return to Broken Goblet Brewing Co in Bristol.

Artist Kevin Convery of Burholme has been painting for over four decades years. His paintings have been exhibited at the Roxborough/Manayunk Arts, Center, Fox Chase Cancer Center, The Michener Museum, The Free Library of Philadelphia, Abington Arts Center, and Cheltenham Arts Center among many others. His art has been published in many Philadelphia area literary and arts magazines. He is a graduate of the Tyler School of Art in Philadelphia and is a school teacher.
The Philadelphia Inquirer described one of his paintings as,” imaginary scene engages the viewer in a direct, intimate, yet mysterious encounter”.
His latest release is, The golden thread: reflections on myth and memory, The introduction captures the essence of his art and text. “Convery’s reflections on mythic themes in images and text. His paintings, which cover a 25-year period, represent a combination of these themes with personal experience. Many of the paintings “draw references from specific, well-known stories”, but are intended to express “meaning related to contemporary life, rather than storytelling.”
In addition to his passion of painting, Convery is a poet. Two collections of his poems have been released. Passages of heart : poetry of the Unification movement and Travels on the night sea : an inner journey through a changeful era. Convery has performed his poetry at numerous venues in the Philadelphia area.

Their mission statement: Inspired by the exceptional care and unforgettable families we met when Cara was being treated at CHOP, we founded an organization to raise funds and resources to give back.
