Slingshot Dakota has become a staple band to see at Musikfest for fans and onlookers. Comprised of husband, Tom Patterson, and wife, Carly Comando, the duo put on an electric performance each year. Tom’s drumming is chaotic that you wonder if his drums will break at any minute. Just watching him perform is like seeing a reincarnation of the Who’s Keith Moon, but without all the drugs. As for Carly she has one of the best voices in the Valley, let alone the indie scene. It’s no surprise this band from little town of Bethlehem has gone on to do some pretty big things and tour extensively. However, when they come back to Bethlehem for their hometown Musikfest show, the crowd is always big and growing to the point that it won’t be surprising to see them headline the main stage in a few years.
