Come and experience WaveRadio and leave with new music from one of the most exciting rock bands in the tristate area.
“…The indie rock trio (WaveRadio) took first place at last year’s Beta Hi Fi competition at World Cafe Live thanks their full, cinematic style…”–Julie Miller WXPN The Key 1/30/2015 Full Article: Tonight’s Concert Picks…
“WaveRadio took the stage first, and immediately established themselves as the act to beat. The West Chester band has an impressively full sound for only being a three-piece – James McGlaughlin plays a pair of keyboards in the Ray Manzarek style, where the left hand carries the high lead melodies and the right hand runs the baseline…Considerably better were their originals, which incorporated some of that Doors-y sense of wandering psychedelia but was probably more in line with the buoyant pop of Jukebox the Ghost and the cinematic anthems of fun. Colin McGetrick has a dynamic voice; Chris Cotter’s drumming is uptempo and on point.” –John Vettese, WXPN the Key 8/25/2014, Full Article: WaveRadio, RFA take Top Honors at Beta Hi Fi Philly
“Undoubtedly the next big thing out of Philly… Sweeping atmospheric melodies, deep soul searing lyrics and without a doubt the tightest, most epic sound from a three piece band since U2.” – Kevin McQuiston, WCHE Radio
“It’s (WaveRadio, by WaveRadio) memories in melodies that roll like roadside hills. Songs are shadowy, tinged with grey but able to punch through powerfully. It’s raw rock that’s been polished with a cloth dipped in motor oil.” –Nikki Volpicelli, Philadelphia Area Music Showcase
Stereo Box is a dynamic progressive/Jam band from Wilmington Delaware. Formed through long standing musical relationships and personal friendships with-in all the members of the band , this group is pushing the boundries of improvisation and changing the perception of how live music should be perceived in the future. Coupled with straight forward Rock & Roll. Their unique blend of well written and intricate song list that is infused with mind blowing improvisation, sets them apart as one of the most unique, highly talented, and fastest growing groups on the music scene today. Along with the music the band also provides the listener with a visual media to enhance their live show experience.
A shaggy-haired loquacious timekeeping genius, an angry wise man with a bass and a voice like an angel, some disjointed unified theory, hot tube amps, cool blue cable, more fuzz than strictly necessary, seven imaginary back-up singers in white go-go boots and an adequate electrical supply. All of this resulted in the forward-thinking retro rock called Glim Dropper.
The Late Saints
Led by Italian-born vocalist, guitarist, and kazoo virtuoso Jacopo de Nicola, bassist Mike Huff and drummer Micah Hebbel, The Late Saints bring on stage their genre-bending Italian Gypsy Rock. Expanding on the tradition of the Italian Cantautori, empowered by frenetic rhythms a la Manu Chao and Gogal Bordello, this Philadelphia based trio takes the audience on a journey across Balkan influenced two-steps, Latin American Tropicalia, and poignant protest songs. They will be joined by cello virtuoso Sheila Hershey. Ciao !
