This event is all ages
AlyCat is kind of a big deal…in a Funk/Rock/Electro kind of way. The band emerged onto the Philadelphia scene in full effect in 2011 carrying an infectious new sound. AlyCat's unique new fusion of dance beats with solid songs is what sets them apart from other jam bands. The music is a hybrid of electronic and organic instruments infused with dance beats and funky bass. The forceful gospal-like vocals will hypnotize you with sweet harmonies and provoking lyrics. AlyCat's first full length release "Cat Lady" will be released in April 2013. The band members individually have toured throughout the United Sates with everyone from David Bromberg to The Roots and have performed at legendary venues such as The Fillmore West, The Great American Music Hall, Stone Pony, World Café Live, the Queen Theater, Philadelphia Folk Festival, Levon Helm's Ramble Sessions in Woodstock, and many more. Some of their heavy influences include: Stevie Wonder, Nikka Costa, N'Dea Davenport, Aretha Franklin, Stuart Zender, Mike Gordon, Bootsy Collins and James Jamerson.

Spontaneous Underground is a keyboard trio with deep roots in Philly jazz and a common musical history dating back almost 20 years. The band draws equally from free improvisation, cosmic 70's funk and deep house. They are known for their raw, high energy performances ranging from jazz standards to cosmic dance throwdowns. Freedom is the defining principle, and every show is a unique and memorable musical event. The group consists of James Dunstan [JD3, Damn Right!], Tony D'Amato [The Heavy Pets, Special Delivery] and Jamie Newitt [The Heavy Pets].
