Nakama is a new instrumental rock band from Philadelphia, PA. Their music is emotive and technical, featuring progressive compositions. The band released their first studio EP, Golden City, in 2018. Nakama’s live performances offer a powerful and unpredictable experience.
The Womps are a rising Boston-based alt rock jam band, dazzling audiences with fiery performances that draw on influences including funk, progressive rock and roll, fusion jazz, punk and folk. Formed around a shared love for all things weird and impossible, they strive to make each show unique through collective improvisation, finely-tuned harmonies, and
carefully crafted songs of all shapes and sizes.
The Womps are Kailey Zercher - violin and vocals, JP Goldman - bass and vocals, Jason Lilly - guitar and vocals and Enguerran “OG” Altmayer on drums. Since starting at the Berklee College of Music, The Womps have played over 90 shows in more than 25 cities in the US and Canada.
The Womps released three singles in 2018, which includes an electrifying cover of Dolly Parton’s country classic “Jolene” and two original tunes, the frenzied “Barefoot Sensei” and rocking ballad “Anthem of My Age.” The latter is from The Womps' upcoming album Zlatan!, out in April, preceded by an album single release, "La Palette," on February 27th. Zlatan! was recorded live and almost entirely on tape at Defiant Audio in Long Island, New York.
Bluesy alternative rock band Delmont was born in the streets of Philadelphia when a broken guitar was found in a dumpster. Since then, nothing has been the same.
The band was initially formed in 2014 by Sean Ramirez and Joey Fontana writing acoustic songs in an apartment in Manayunk. With Sean’s soulful raspy vocals and Joey’s virtuosic guitar playing, this small passion project slowly gave birth to something larger than originally imagined. The duo was eventually joined by bassist Colby Fischang, guitarist Ryan Branagh, and drummer Jonah Kazman. With Colby’s funky bass lines, Ryan's classic riffs, and Jonah’s chest pounding drum beats rounding out the rhythm section, the line up was complete and Delmont was born.
While all members hail from the Northeast, Delmont’s music brings a unique southern rock n’ soul touch to the fertile Philly rock scene. Alternating between the grit and soul of the blues and more pop-inflected rock, Delmont achieves balancing many styles of music. Their lyrics strive to address life’s difficult questions and connect diverse groups of people.
Delmont draws its inspiration from the values Philly is known for: hard work and passion. A Philadelphian understands that nothing is given and if you want something you must work to the bone for it. After playing numerous gigs, the band finally recorded some of their material for their debut EP, Aged. Recorded at the renowned Forge Recording studios, the five-track EP is a blistering, soulful rock n’ roll collection filled with relatable, contemplative lyrics. Aged will be released in Spring 2019.
Delmont knows that anything worth doing right takes a lot of sweat and a lot of whiskey. It takes a lot of hard work and a lot of joy. Their mission is to be the soundtrack of your triumphs, your pitfalls, your victories, your failures, your struggles, and your celebrations.
