While Swift Technique draws from all world influences, their genre is uniquely Philadelphia. The idea of combining traditional jazz and funk with hip-hop seems almost too obvious, but artists are not pushing the boundaries. The music scene needs sincere, soulful performers that audiences of all age, race and background can enjoy collectively. By combining old influences with young, raw energy, Swift Technique is the collaboration of six souls on a mission to flip the music scene upside down.
Hamburger Hunt delivers 24/7 drive-thru funk in a 30 mile radius, as long as my mother doesn’t need the car. This delicious new project features former members of Green Light Society, Tangents, Magic Beans, and Plan J. .. C'mon, son!! Let's go on a Hamburger Hunt!
"Black Stars are proof that rock music is fun. Now is the time to catch this band at a live show — they are young and raw, and loud, and electrifying, and a little insane, and probably only going to get more popular. I think they are a band to keep an eye on."
"Black Stars defy ordinary. Four young men from Marlton, NJ are devoted in starting their own renaissance in the Greater Philadelphia area. Here music can be upbeat, groovy, and sexy. Here, music still moves."
"These guys are good musicians and they clearly enjoy playing together in a supportive manner without a lot of interfering ego, and that combination is unusual, electric and compelling."
"From surreal to animated, melancholy to gratifying, this Philadelphia-based funk-rock band creates music that displays all emotions of not just the human mind, but of the human soul."
Black Stars is a band lead by singer/guitarist Nik Greeley and was formed in the late summer of 2010 with his good friend and bassist, Freshy. Black Stars have built a reputation for putting on a very exciting, high energy live show, with a style steeped in Rock, Funk, Soul, Psychedelic and Alternative.
