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.


Dynagroove, formed in 1985 with a mixture of
ska, funk & rock that got the crowds dancing. Founding members Scott “Bill” Derr {drums/percussion}, Bryan “Woody” Ward {bass}, Erik “Smokin’ E.” Horvitz {lead guitar/vocals} & Andy Carr {rhythm guitar/vocals} were joined in 1986 by Darryl Ray “Dr. Jam” Jenkins {saxophone/vocals} & began a quest to make the world ‘move their feet to the Dynagroove beat’. The “dynamical groovations” began to spread all over the greater Philadelphia area & beyond: westward to The Chameleon Club in Lancaster, PA & The Metro in Harrisburg, PA; eastward to the Jersey shore to Red’s in Margate, Shenanigan’s in Sea Isle City & The Stone Pony in Asbury Park;
southward to The Buggy Tavern & The Stone Balloon in DE & further south to The Windjammer on The Isle of Palms near Charleston, SC. Dynagroove opened for national acts, such as Foghat, NRBQ & John Lee Hooker, as well as headlining shows, playing as many as 26 shows in 30 days at one point & appearing on local radio programs, such as Cyndy Drue’s “Street Beat” on WMMR in Philadelphia.
