Music

This year's performers include:

Johnny Showcase: An electrifying experience. An 8-piece absurdist soul outfit based in Johnny ShowcasePhiladelphia, it is an innovative, joyful tour-de-force that blissfully toes the line between performance art and a psychedelic soul revival. Carrying the torch of funk-rock pioneers like Funkadelic and Frank Zappa, they have gained a massive following and propelled Johnny to something that of a funky Philly folk hero legend. Listen to samples here: http://johnnyshowcase.com/

 

Akil DasanAkil Dasan: International performer and accompanist to stars such as Maroon 5 and Jaicko, Akil brings the energy of Bruno Mars, blends it with the soul of Marvin Gaye, and combines it all with lyrics that tip their hat to the likes of Nas, Black Thoughtful, and Q-Tip. Whether he's beatboxing, singing, or playing guitar, Akil's powerful performances reach every audience and transport them to his lyrically masterful world. Hear samples here: http://www.sonicbids.com/band/keepitakil/audio/ 

Papo GelyPapo Gely: From Rumba and Mambo to Bachata and Samba, the show is built around Gely’s Rock/Blues influenced guitar playing over the complex rhythmical mastery of Andres Cisneros from Colombia (congas) and Christian Noguera  from Argentina (bongos) all currently residing in the Philly area. Listen to a sample here.

 


Deb Callahan: Drenched in soul and rooted in in blues, singer and songwriter Deb Callahan has been a mainstay on the Philly music scene for many years now. She writes creative blues, soul and roots influenced original music and puts on a great live show with her band members Allen James, Garry Lee and Tom Walling. Hear a sample at: www.debcallahanband.com

 

 

 

The Gin Canaries: The Gin Canaries are an eclectic collection of musicians who share a love of the jazz era. From the 20's to the 40's, some of the greatest music was made, and these birds aim to bring it back to life so it's never forgotten. Hear what they are slinging at www.gincanaries.com.
