The sound of Maurer’s music is distinctive and unique enough to be impossible to label, but his classical and jazz training influence a blues and funk-based rock that reaches with intensity without overwhelming. Not to be eclipsed by Jon’s eye-popping keyboard skills, his passionate vocals hearken classic rockers Roger Daltry and Robert Plant while paying homage to the consumable Beatles’ harmonic sound.The current evolution of Jon’s music features a minimalist, roots-based approach by limiting the sound to four basic instruments-piano, sax, bass and drums. Notably missing from this quartet is the versatility of a guitar, but its absence allows even more space for the nuance of the featured instruments and rich vocal melodies and harmonies.While Jon stands out, he’s certainly not alone. Each band mate brings a lifetime of musical experience and education. Nick Selvi, a long-time Baltimore music veteran, has been featured in virtually every incarnation of Maurer’s bands as well as the Kelly Bell Band. But for the first time, his saxophone is not a complement, but a supplement. Nick is a perpetual student of music of all forms who plays and teaches just about every major instrument and also lends his skill on the keyboard as well.

3 Terrifying Attractions for the price of one admission, $15
Not suitable for anyone under the age of 10
* Trail of Terror or Path of Death
* Blackwell House
* Field of Fears
Our three haunted attractions, The Trail of Terror, Haunted Forest, and Field of Fear are very scary attractions that take place in a wooded and outside venue setting. Most haunted trails are close to a mile long and may include small buildings, tents or huts that include various scenes and themes you’ll be forced to enter or walk past.
Some haunted paths are roped off to deny access to certain restricted areas and may or may not have lit paths. Unlike enclosed haunted houses, weather plays a major role to determine if the attraction will be open or closed. A typical haunted trail tour will last anywhere from 40-50 minutes. The tour time varies greatly depending on the number of people in a group, the customer’s pace and the overall size of the attraction.
The Trail of Terror, Blackwell House and the Field of Fear are comprised of over 20 acres, with over 30 acres for parking. Refreshments and souvenirs will be available during the event.
