Oct.7 56 Men. The name of this rock quintet from the Philadelphia area comes from makeup of the signers of the Declaration of Independence. The band features long-time veteran musicians whose appearances on the Homegrown Music series go back to the 1980s. Last year they released a CD called Landing Lights, and the group provided a preview of some of the songs in this April 2013 Homegrown Music session. The band is known for their upbeat, melodic rock influenced by the British Invasion. (Encore)

Oct. 14 Empire in Decline. This Northeastern PA rock trio is a successor to the quartet Plus 3 who appeared on Homegrown Music in both studio and live settings. They serve up similarly appealing original rock and pop songs in their all-new Homegrown Music debut.

Oct. 21 Scott Krokoff. Singer-songwriter Scott Krokoff is also a practicing attorney. He writes articulate and often poignant songs. His CD Realizations and Declarations Vol. 1 was spotlighted on WVIA's Mixed Bag. This segment is an encore of Krokoff's 2013 Homegrown Music debut.

Oct 28 George Wesley. One of Northeastern Pennsylvania's best-known and durable musicians, George Wesley has been a regular guest on Homegrown Music since the late 1970s. His reggae-based music is always appealing and danceable, especially so in this encore of a WVIA studio session that led to one of his CDs.
