Jeff Thomas' All-Volunteer Army

JEFF THOMAS’ ALL-VOLUNTEER ARMY is a mighty stampede of rock-and-roll now taking center stage in the righteous battle for today's pop music.

If Leonard Cohen and PJ Harvey had a baby who grew up listening to The Smiths, Nina Simone and old Rolling Stones records, that baby might form a band that sounds like DIVERS, a newly formed rock quartet from Philadelphia starring local sweethearts Emily Ana Zeitlyn (The Weeds), Ross Bellenoit (Birdie Busch), Tom Bendel (Buried Beds) and Adam Winokur (Pete Donnelly). DIVERS use equal parts stabbing lyric, extreme dynamic and darling melody to whisper to the sadder side of your soul. With one recording so far (a free download at) DIVERS plan to record a full-length album this fall and will continue to play locally this summer.

Chelsea Reed and the Fairweather Five

Chelsea Reed and the Fair Weather Five is a hot jazz and blues band specializing in music from the 20s and 30s. This band hails from Philadelphia, playing everywhere from nationally renowned venues to dive bars to right on the city streets. The band is led by Miss Chelsea Reed and alongside her as always is the Fair Weather Five featuring Chris Oatts on saxophone, Noah Hocker on trumpet, Jake Kelberman on guitar, Joseph Plowman on bass and Austin Wagner behind the drums. Their music embodies the feel and history of jazz music in the South, drawing upon early jazz artists such as Fats Waller, Bessie Smith, Louis Armstrong and Billie Holiday. Playing both timeless classics and obscure gems, Chelsea Reed and the Fair Weather Five strive to bring the humor, passion and raw grit of early jazz to every audience.
