Flannel (A 90s Grunge Revival)
Flannel is woven from both grungy and alternative 90’s musical threads. It isn’t just a fabric, it’s a feeling. Wrapped in plaid and fueled on the anthems you sing along with to this day, Flannel brings 15+ years of experience in the genre to the stage, featuring the music of Pearl Jam, Nirvana, Smashing Pumpkins, Weezer, Green Day and Alice in Chains. With over 50 shows spanning 35 venues, including: a A sell out of World Café Live, Hard Rock Café, Parx Casino, and The Legendary Dobbs, and The Block at Harrahs, Flannel will scratch your 90’s itch. Feeling nostalgic?—join the Flannel Nation today.
Love Killed Kurt (Nirvana Tribute)
loveKILLEDkurt is a Nirvana Tribute band capturing the spirit of the live performances of this legendary trio for those who were not able to see them play live 20 years ago. Do you wish you could have been there for those chaotic performances? loveKILLEDkurt of course covers all the hits but really revels in exploring the deep cuts and forgotten treasures as well. The trio excels at combining the crunch, energy and wail of Nirvana’s live performances with a keen ear for the arrangement and melodic feel of the album recordings.
Evil (Live Tribute)
EVIL is a Līve Tribute band from Saylorsburg, PA.
Superunknown (Chris Cornell Tribute)
Superunknown is quickly becoming the premier tribute band for the music of Chris Cornell. Started in 2018 as a solo act with vocalist/guitarist Jason Reed, Superunknown now consists of a full band also featuring Louis Graff (lead guitar), Tom Laskas (bass) and Ron DiSilvestro (drums) of the highly regarded Foo Fighters tribute White Limo.
Superunknown covers all eras of Chris Cornell, playing the music of Soundgarden, Audioslave and Temple of the Dog. Reed in particular uncannily recreates the howling vocals Cornell became celebrated for in the Seattle grunge scene.
“I've always been a huge fan of the music of Chris Cornell. When I first heard Soundgarden in the early 90's I was blown away and I started learning their songs,” says Reed, who also plays drums for a Pearl Jam tribute band, Somebody Else's Sky, and creates original music with his band, the Reed Brothers Band. “When I was a kid, I was drawn to singers like Robert Plant and Steven Tyler who could sing in a high register with power. With Soundgarden, Chris Cornell took that power to a whole new level. What stood out in Temple of the Dog was the writing; those songs are so heartfelt, with a universal message I think anyone can relate to, and I love the dynamic range of Audioslave.”
After Cornell’s death in 2017, Reed desired to perform a "one-off" solo acoustic show in tribute. After opening for some of the local Grunge-a-Palooza festivals with his solo acoustic set, he ended up performing all over the Northeast. Through Grunge-a-Palooza he met the guys in White Limo who offered to back him up as a full band version of Superunknown.
Superunknown have already scored gigs playing the Gramercy Theatre in NYC, The Queen in Wilmington, and the World Café Live and Underground Arts venues in Philadelphia, where they connected with audiences desiring to hear the music of the late, great music legend. They have plans to travel overseas to perform at the US military base in Honduras this Fourth of July.
