Praying Mantis Entertainment presents

Praying Mantis Entertainment presents an evening of Delaware local music featuring Stone, Black Dog Alley, Honor and Helmz Edge.

Hiding Scarlet

Hiding Scarlet is a violin infused progressive rock band from Central Pennsylvania. This quintet is known for their energetic and dramatic live performances. The fusion of musical genres including progressive rock, metal, classical, Celtic and alternative rock fuel this groups explorations of dark vs. light themes with a tinge of elegance. With 7 string guitars, beautiful violin lines, haunting vocal melodies and a well timed rhythm section merging into one atmosphere Hiding Scarlet is dedicated and devoted to producing the music that moves our souls while providing listeners with a commentary of the human condition. That human condition which can be comprised of despair, rejection, and death counterbalanced by joy, hope, and life is what pushes this ever evolving and innovative band to pour out passion for music in everything they do and connect directly to you the listener.

Smacking Madison

Smacking madison is a rock band from Coatesville, PA. Since forming in 2009, they have been developing their sound and writing songs that now possess a brilliant hard rock texture, with an alternative edge. ‘Music you can feel, and a show not to miss.’

The Big Black Night


Bodhilynn (Bo-dee Lynn) is a Delaware born singer with a natural born love of the blues. She is currently singing covers in an acoustic duo.

Civil Holdup

Civil Holup is a rock & roll band consisting of 4 members who bring various musical influences into the creation of unique original music. Ryan, Ben & James were previous members of the band MoonLit Haze, which was well known in the South Jersey music scene. After several years pursuing individual musical ventures, they reunited to create Civil Holdup, with the addition of the expertise that Mike brings on guitar. During the time apart, each member captured musical influences from genres including rock, funk, and folk. Together, they hope to create their own unique sound and carve out a niche in this crazy world.

Spoken Life

Spoken Life is a solo Acoustic Rock project based out of the suburbs of Philadelphia, PA. This project was started by Anthony Irvin in February 2012. Having been a dedicated musician for over 10 years, he takes much pride and heart into his musical endeavors. Anthony wanted to pursue this project for a while now, and when the time came around, he was excited to finally sit down and start writing his own music. After going through two different genre type bands throughout the last couple years, he started to compose his own acoustic songs and Spoken Life was born. Anthony longed to write music that could touch people in many ways and to reassure his listeners that whatever situations you encounter in your life, to keep hope and have faith.
