About

The Psychic Beat One Man Band consists of me, myself, and I!  My name is Danny Brumbaugh and I am the excitable octopus behind this musical project.  I play the bass drum, snare drum, and hi-hat cymbals with my feet, while simultaneously playing the guitar, harmonica/kazoo, and singing all at the same time.  In addition to playing the guitar, I also like to incorporate homemade and found instruments into my repertoire.  My philosophy is the more unique, the better the show!  I’ve been a musician my entire life, and a professional musician for 21 years.  The Psychic Beat came into being about 4 years ago, and has been going strong ever since.  I play extensively in the Central Pennsylvania area, but my network is growing every day.  I can often be found in my native stomping grounds of State College PA, but if the music takes me and the job is right, I am always more than happy to travel!  Over the past four years, this musical incarnation has taken me to biker parties, caver gatherings, bot mitzvahs, churches, restaurants, cafes, tattoo shops, back yard birthdays, country clubs, environmental centers, street festivals, yard sale extravaganzas, and bars.  If there’s electricity, I’ll plug my gear in.  If there’s none, I have a battery powered PA system.  If you need me for the job, I’m there!  My music is an eclectic mix of originals and covers.  The genres I play in run the gambit of old school country, jazz, lounge, surf, blues, rock a billy, rock n roll, punk rock, reggae, and hip hop.  I often like to mix as many of these genres as possible into one show, but am more than happy to tailor a special set for private parties, weddings, or other social gatherings.  For booking information, shoot a message on over to thepsychicbeat at gmail dot com
