This event is all ages
Transistor Rodeo makes its home in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania though its members hail from all over the US. They play a rootsy style of rock'n'roll conveniently called "Alt-Country" by the more creative members of the music press. Transistor Rodeo is a five piece outfit consisting of the standard vocal, 2 guitar, bass, drums format with the tasty addition of the violin. Their style has been compared to everyone from Tom Petty to Son Volt and almost never to Heavy D
The Miners are an original alt country band based in Philadelphia, PA (yes, there are alt country bands in Philly). Originally formed in 2007, The Miners are known for their country-infused, guitar and pedal steel guitar laden, alt country originals influenced by the likes of Uncle Tupelo, Whiskeytown, the Jayhawks, Gram Parsons, and Buck Owens. Co-founded by Keith Marlowe, the current line-up of Marlowe (lead vocals, guitar), Andy Shahan (drums, vocals), David Thornburgh (pedal steel and lap steel guitars) and Gregg Hiestand (bass).
The Miners debut release, Miner’s Rebellion, a six-song EP, was released in November 2012 to critical acclaim and notable airplay. The Miners received a featured write-up on No Depression and were featured twice on Bill Frater’s legendary podcast, Freight Train Boogie. Miners’ Rebellion has drawn praise from alt country/Americana blogs both in the U.S. and overseas where it was named a Top-10 release for 2013 by Adobe & Teardrops, was chosen as the #1 Debut Release of 2013 by the blog Popa’s Tunes, and a Best of 2013 by UK radio show Standing in the Shadows of Lev.
Miners’ Rebellion has received airplay on alt country/Americana radio programs in the U.S. and overseas including Wrecking Ball Radio (Chapel Hill, NC; #1 on weekly playlist in March 2013), Radio Free Americana (Verona, VA; #11 on their weekly top-200 artists in February 2013), Redbud Radio Show (Indianapolis, IN), Roots, Rock Review (Z88.9 NJ), The Kitchen Party (WPMG Portland, ME), American Roots and Standing in the Shadows of Lev in the UK, and the Songriver Show and Radio Girl Show out of the Netherlands.
