This event is 21 and over
Halfro formed in Philadelphia in 2009 originally under the name “Chocolate Milk”. Their sound blends classic, gritty, hip-hop rhythms with floating melodies, and honest lyrics. Writing and performing their songs with real instruments, Halfro is one just a few true bands in hip-hop today. Vocalist Dave Patrick met producer and keyboardist Andrew Aulenbach in high school, and they began work on a mixtape for Patrick. Drummer Justin Davis was featured on several tracks of the group’s first project, and became an integral member shortly thereafter. While studying at Temple University, the trio met bassist Luke Reitz and saxophonist Curtis Arnett. They immediately began writing and recording original music and making rounds at local live venues. Select performances include opening for Wale and Chiddy Bang at the Liacouras Center (Philadelphia Concert venue), as well as playing on bills with Nikki Jean, Dice Raw, Shinobi Ninja, Mic Stewart and a list of others. Halfro continues to push the boundaries of music through their exploration of sound, and strives to create hardworking, humble hip-hop.
Electric-Soulful and intense describes the unique sound of Platinum Mustache. A fusion of raw soul a dash of funk with a pinch of Rock and Hip Hop makes anyone a believer.
Known for his unique personality, guitar playing, incredible wordplay and distinctive voice, Greg Sover is not only here to be heard but also to be remembered as one of the best. The Brooklyn-born, Philly-raised musician has a sound like no other. His musical influences are Jay-Z, Bob Marley, and Jimi Hendrix, just to name a few. No one expects this guy from the streets to be a rocker, but he is a pure genius when it come to producing, songwriting, and, last but not least, guitar playing.
Greg Sover is a true singer/songwriter, just a well-rounded individual. He says, "The struggles and passions in my life are what made me understand other people's struggles and passions in life. Being the musician that I am, I just write about them." He feels that music today is lacking feeling and soul. "What happened to relating? No one knows how to relate anymore," says Greg Sover". He knows how to captivate an audience. Not one person expects him to play rock music and play his guitar the way he does. People just stand in amazement. He knows how to get his point across. "I feel that I am capable of changing the music business as we know it," says Greg Sover. His style and his approach to music are new, fresh, and different. The world needs to hear him and to witness a real artist at work.
