The current lineup includes Ed Harvey, guitar and vocals; Marty Sine, drums and vocals; Terry Workman, keyboard and harmonica; and, Dick Mongold; bass and vocals, Bill Green; Saxophone.


The group offers an entertaining mix of great vocals, smooth harmonies and good dance music.

On Saturday, July 4, at 4 pm at Historic City Center, The Masons will perform. They play foot-tappin' Americana-folksy blues with a little bit of traditional country and bluegrass just for fun!. This summer, in addition to the Friday night concerts, downtown will host live music every Saturday afternoon at 4 PM.

On Saturday evening at 7:30 pm, The Potomac Concert Band will take the Susquehanna Bank Stage at Canal Place.
