The Bedouin Fires at Emmaus Road Cafe
The Bedouin Fires formed in 2005 when Scott Weyman (drums, vocals) and Caley Roark (keyboard, horn, harmonica) united their musical talents for a variety show. After Roark recruited friend Kirk Landis (vocals, guitar), the trio initially held practice in the local high school’s band room. From those first sessions, the band fell into 2 elements of its signature sound: passionate vocals set over driving, progressive rhythms.
The band expanded their sound in 2007 when mutual friend John Girvin (bass, vocals) joined the group. The quartet played throughout south-central Pennsylvania, winning a “Battle of the Bands” competition in 2010 and co-headlining the 2012 Barnfire Music Festival. The group also gave its first performance in downtown Lancaster in 2013. Local guitar hero Matt Huber (guitar, bass, vocals) was added in 2014, completing the current lineup.
In February 2015, The Bedouin Fires hosted their first-ever benefit concert, Live for Celebrate Recovery, to raise money for Providence Church’s Celebrate Recovery® program.
Drawing inspiration from the work of such mainstream acts as U2, Jars of Clay, Coldplay, Rush and Dave Matthews Band, the group strives to examine faith in today’s world through the lens of music. Original compositions, modern twists on traditional hymns and covers of rock anthems all mix in the band’s energetic stage performances.
