Tommy Conwell & The Young Rumblers

Tommy Conwell & The Young Rumblers

Tommy Conwell broke onto the Philadelphia music scene in 1984 when he and his band Tommy Conwell and the Young Rumblers played JC Dobbs at 3rd and South. The band had a #1 US mainstream rock hit in 1988 with “I’m Not Your Man.” The band, consisting of Tommy Conwell (guitar, vocals), Chris Day (rhythm guitar) Paul Slivka (stand up bass), Rob Miller (keyboards) and Jimmy Hannum (drums), was known for its raw, high energy live performances. Conwell quickly rose to the top of the Philly rock and roll food chain by providing long, sweaty, funny, bluesy and often transcendent shows that audiences ate up as something different from what they were being offered elsewhere. Tommy Conwell and the Young Rumblers made the hugely popular independent album Walking on the Water, and two albums for Columbia Records, Rumble and Guitar Trouble. The band was featured in Rolling Stone magazine, performed live on The American Music Awards, Late Night with David Letterman, and the Arsenio Hall Show.

The Dirty Pearls

Brand new but already a classic, The Dirty Pearls come straight from Rivington Street in the Lower East Side of New York City. All sex, drugs and rock & roll bravado delivered with sharp hooks, witty lyrics and a seedy swagger reminiscent of the finest 1970's-era rock acts.

The band's history begins with lead singer Tommy London, who set out in search of four fine young men eager to stir up some
NYC-style rock 'n' roll; four guys intent on resurrecting the magic
conjured by The Ramones and The New York Dolls. Guitarist Tommy Mokas and drummer Marty E. arrived first, followed soon after by guitarist Sunny Climbs and bassist Doug Wright. And The Dirty Pearls were born.

Their high-energy live shows will make your heart pound and your feet stomp and if you don't leave singing a Dirty Pearls song, then you were never really there at all.

Rock 'n' roll has returned...now wipe that smile off your face
