Splintered Sunlight (Grateful Dead Tribute)
Splintered Sunlight formed in 1992. "Splintered" quickly became the most popular Grateful Dead Tribute band in the Philadelphia area gaining praise from Dead Heads and Non Heads alike. Since that time, Splintered Sunlight has become a permanent fixture for music in the Mid Atlantic regiong. The band has also maintained a weekly residency at Brownies 23 East in Ardmore, PA for years.
The McLovins specialize in the creation of dynamic and improvised sound, influenced by the members' disparate and eclectic musical influences. The band currently includes Jason Ott, Jake Huffman, Justin Berger and Atticus Kelly.
The McLovins embrace simultaneous and intricate improvisation with a more versatile front line in which all members are singing in four-part harmony, writing lyrics & music, as well as expounding on one another's musical ideas. Set list segues and fiery improvisations are a staple of the band's performances, keeping our audience always guessing what's coming next and wanting more! In the short time this line up has been together, they have been invited to perform at an impressive number of well-established and new music festivals. These guys are constantly writing and practicing music, building their own foundation for a long term career, of bringing their music performing for their growing number of 11,500+ fans.
Philadelphia Funk Hustle
The Philadelphia Funk Hustle is a improvisational jamtronica/ funk/ rock trio based out of the tri-state area. With powerful drum beats, funky bass, and tasty licks on the guitar they're coming to a show near you!
Four friends brought together by a love of picking, singing and grinning, Acoustics Anonymous bridges the gap between groove and grass. Injecting gravity and soul into anything they touch, and coating it all with a shimmering layer of harmonies, the music can at one moment be raucous and at the next hushed. Whether its channeling the spirits of Jerry Garcia, Joe Cocker or James Taylor during a choice cover or melting it all together for an original, Acoustics Anonymous can be found first and foremost playing live: bringing people together and making them smile, sing, laugh and dance - that's what it's all about, right? The band features a rotating cast of drummers (Dave Clark of The Schwag, Sam Niehaus of Reelfoot, and on occasion, Rob Koritz of Dark Star Orchestra!), so each show brings with it a varied style. The band formed in August 2012 and in its short career has shared bills with such renowned acts as Cornmeal, Greensky Bluegrass, The Giving Tree Band, Carrie Nation & The Speakeasy, Chimney Choir and The Real McCoys, as well as frequently playing shows with the slew of great talent in and around their hometown, St. Louis: Old Salt Union, Clusterpluck, Elemental Shakedown, The Thin Dimes, Jack Grelle, The Stone Sugar Shakedown, The Trophy Mules, The Barn Mice, Goodness Gracious, Kid Scientist & many more!
