Neenan), a  Delaware Valley indie music veteran whose previous bands have supported artists such as The Church, The Posies, the late Tommy Keene, Terra Lightfoot, The Chameleons (UK),  Throwing Muses, The Soup Dragons, River City Extension, Dwight Twilley,  and many others. Recently the band won Best Alternative Song for their track, “White  Dove,” and received a 2018 WSTW Hometown Heroes Homey Award.

Adventure Lost is a 'progressive-pop' trio hailing from the city of Brotherly Love. Comprised of lead singer and guitarist Jack Faracchio, drummer Larry Iaccio, and bassist John Sellers, Adventure Lost is guaranteed to entertain through intensely energetic yet intimate live shows, and relentlessly innovative songwriting.
Inspired by the likes of The Beatles, Queen, Panic! at the Disco, Tame Impala, and many others, AL's sound is a culmination of innumerable, diverse influences that have come together to create something refreshingly unique.
Adventure Lost is as much an ideology as it is a band, believing that everyone must GET LOST in order to truly find themselves. Only when a person is at their most vulnerable can one truly experience the beauty and bliss of the unknown and feel absolutely alive.

Steve Oakley - 4:35pm
Philadelphia/New Jersey.

The STEVE OAKLEY BAND is an American Rock Band from New Jersey that melds Rock, Country, Punk, Prog, and World Music into a coherent musical soundscape bolstered by intelligent lyrics and emotional story telling.

Greg McGarvey 5:35pm
Bucks County, PA.

A veteran of multiple rock & roll bands and folk groups in the Greater Philadelphia and New York areas, Greg McGarvey has become one of the most vibrant, emotional, and often startlingly funny songwriters on the music scene today. Equally at ease in a rock club or in a hushed theater, Greg always delivers performances that are passionate, honest, and - given his love of life's unplanned, spontaneous moments - unique.
Greg first touched his grandfather's Gibson guitar at the age of three and has rarely been seen without a guitar since. His father Scott claims he learned to read earlier than expected in order to more easily find songs on Everly Brothers records. By the time six-year-old Greg saw The Everlys perform in person, he knew what he wanted to do with his life.
Soon, Greg will release his first album. Count The Colors (For Marcella), featuring members of Levee Drivers, St. James & The Apostles, Bears Choice, and The Divine Hand Ensemble, is a tribute to Greg's late, great girlfriend, one of the earliest and strongest supporters of his songwriting.
"When I resumed my writing in Nashville [in 2015] after a brief pause, it was time to write about very real time spent with a very real person to whom I felt I owed a debt. This called for not only a resumption of my work, but a raising of the bar. I had to do her justice.
My songs allow me to preserve life's most profound moments and then move on, knowing I can always return to them like a sort of musical time machine.

I aspire to write pieces of music that have the atmosphere of a song that might be playing on a jukebox in some strange dream you're having at 4 AM. Those are the songs I keep."

SiSi Dash - 6:35pm
Philadelphia, PA.

My name is SiSi Dash...R&B recording artist

Philadelphia, PA.

Jersey born Norton Scott writes songs with the intention that the next one you hear becomes a new favorite. His music immerses listeners into a life swept away by complex relationships and world events, always seeking an underlying truth to tether the soul. What you hear is entirely reproduced live. Scott uses two mics clamped together with one connected to a harmonizer to achieve his rich, unique sound.
Scott began playing and writing music at the age of five, following his guitar playing father's fingers on a ukulele and eventually working his way through classical piano training. He taught himself from there, inspired by folk and rock classics from the 60s and 70s. Raised in a rural farm community with few neighbors meant that music as companion was more important than as vocation, and he would refuse industry offers to take his talents beyond the personal sphere. 
After years of fronting local alternative rock acts while quietly pursuing a writing career, Scott returned to the start. Now residing in Philadelphia (by way of Los Angeles and New York) he's built his "star vehicle" not only to reach further frontiers of exposure, but also new heights of escape, truth and understanding. If nothing else, he's learned at last that flying into the unknown is often its own reward.

Jackie June 8:35pm
New Jersey

Find the courage to speak your truth.
New Jersey singer-songwriter Jackie June channels this guiding principle into her 2019 EP Wildflower. Truth has remained a challenging force for the songstress, having spent life suppressing her undying passion for music. 
Now, secure in her footing and firm in her voice, June shares her story of apprehension with the world, instructing those both young and old that it's never too late to leap forward into your truth. Finally harnessing her voice and speaking as the narrator of her own story, June accesses the most authentic version of herself.
Wildflower finds kinship with the sonically delicate and lyrically poignant pop discographies of artists from Michelle Branch and Sara Bareilles to Lady Gaga and Adele. And, more personally, June's infectious refrains and whimsical instrumentation harken back to the 90s airwaves that inspired her youth.

Dirty Soap 7:00pm
Philadelphia, PA.

Dirty Soap is a Rock group from Philadelphia.  Founding members, Spoon Ferguson and Thomas Martin, met in high school and quickly formed a musical bond.  Blending Spoon’s raw vocals, affinity for traditional Blues, and unique guitar sty-lings (he plays left handed with inverted strings) with Thomas’ smooth  Doo-wop approach and catchy song writing.  The name Dirty Soap represents these opposing styles.  
               Over the years they crafted their unique sound on Philly street corners and parks - dubbing themselves “Doo-wop Punks.”  The band expanded with the addition of a rhythm section while working the open-mic circuit.  Shane Leddy providing his booming stand up bass and Walter Foley adding groove and texture with the drums.  Years later they acquired Shawn “The Kid” Touhill with his intricate and biting guitar leads.  The pieces are now all in place and with hard work, restless dedication, and a youthful excitement and love for their craft, they strive to be amongst the many greats to come out of Philadelphia.

It only gets better…and louder! New Album 'Nowhere Else' Spring 2019!

Stereotytans 9:00pm
Philadelphia, PA.

Many millennia ago, the earth and sky gave birth to the mighty Tytans­– Kronos, Okeanus, Hyperion & Prometheus – who ruled benevolently during  a period known as “The Golden Age.” Unnerved by an ancient prophecy, Kronos grew fearful of his own children and devoured each of them whole. After escaping their father’s belly, Zeus and his siblings waged a great war,  eventually overthrowing and entombing the Tytans deep in Tartarus; the dark abyss where ancient souls are cast away to  rot in perpetual punishment. Regrettably, the reign of the new gods became tainted by Zeus’ power-hungry greed and  monstrous infidelities. As the Golden Age decayed into turmoil, the Tytans, with the aid of Zeus’  daughter Athena, were released from their prison and seek refuge in the modern age. Now living in secret and concealing their powers, the Tytans have formed a rock band in the hopes to convert new followers into an army of Demigods to help battle Zeus and return the Tytans to their rightful place among the heavens. And thus, STEREOTYTANS was born!
The Philadelphia-based, comic book inspired, hard rock band, is taking Olympus and Earth by storm. These aren’t your ordinary rockers, however.  The Tytans describe their sound as “if Living Color, Fishbone and Radiohead had a three-way while Public Enemy watched and then birthed sweet, sweet musical babies with hints of soul, funk and metal mixed in for good measure.” Fans who experience crew’s elemental superpowers will be-transformed through a truly unique musical experience.

House of Curses 10:00pm
Decatur, AL.

With their brand of what’s being called “Life metal” and a sound that is of their own, House of Curses, a metal band from Decatur, Alabama, deliver a passionate brand of metal that beautifully blends melody and harmony with thunderous drums and crunching guitars, grooving bass lines, and emotion felt vocals.
This 5 piece, assembly of music veterans had toured and taken the stage with Sevendust, Buckcherry, and Straight Line Stitch with previous endeavours. Dedication and a love for the art of making music led to the current lineup of what has turned into Alabama’s band to watch.

 “A gloomy yet irresistible metal band from Decatur, HoC is quickly picking up interest from all over. Their Deftones and Sevendust influences are heavy but does not mean their sound isn’t uniquely their own. Incredibly interesting and variant vocals by Dan Stockfisch shine in a bed of James Parker’s thundering drums and heavy guitars and bass. Josh Thompson, Josh Smith, and Brad Long intertwine their intricate performances to create an incredible overall guitar sound.” says

 “House Of Curses has a prolific and dark style that matches the status of most successful metal acts today. Their debut album is well anticipated in the months to come.”
Stonewall Jackson from Hardnailer

“It’s hard to pin them down to any single style of music. They are a hard-rocking band, which often drifts into pieces of melodic, mathematically perfect metal, then drops down into deeper, more somber and intense sounds, which counters and adds strength to the opposing hard rock sound.”
Matthew Hall of Land+Lake Magazine

Eyes of the Living 11:00pm
Philadelphia, PA.

We are four friends with a love for Metal looking to do something new! Chris Moore (Bass) and Tim Swisher (Vocals/Guitar) are from a local metal band "Abolish". Mike Straiton Lead Guitarist and Cliff Fritts Drums played for another local metal band named "Pummel". Both bands thrived in the mid to late 90's and were well known in the local underground metal scene. Playing in all the great local clubs and opening for such acts as Morbid Angel, Crowbar, Overkill, Fear Factory and even Iron Maiden at the Electric Factory. "Eyes of the Living" is a new project with a variety of influences that punches a hole in the fabric of sound! enjoy!!

Main Stage

The Joe Kenney Band7:00pm
Phoenixville, PA

Joe Kenney is a recording artist and virtuoso keyboardist from Philadelphia. His recordings are distinctly his: a cohesive blending of jazz fusion, rock, and classical idioms. Prolific -- he’s put out three full albums with two forthcoming (all in three years) -- Kenney has garnered praise for both his original compositions and cover arrangements.
His debut album, Afflictions and Remedies, a solo piano album, was praised as a "painting of a piano at work" by Meredith Hairston, who put the album in rotation at WJSU in Jackson, MS.
Joe's eight-track debut has also received spins on WRTI and WXPN in Philadelphia.
In early 2016, Kenney showed his versatility by delivering a nine track album of jazz and classical inspired arrangements of alternative rock and top 40 hits. Released in February 2016, "1.5" was recognized on broadcast radio 104.5 Philadelphia several times and featured on the alternative rock station's page on iHeartRadio. DJ Wendy Rollins characterized his Twenty One Pilots cover as "perfection" and went on to praise Joe for "re-imagining songs in a completely different format".
Expanding into different formats, Kenney got to work on an album with a full band for the first time, honing in on a jazz fusion sound while retaining the classically informed harmonies from his first two albums. The first two singles from the upcoming album were released in November 2016, with the third single, "Zera", put out in May 2017. 
In March 2018, Kenney released 2.5, his third full studio album in as many years. Showcasing multiple styles and varying instrumentation, 2.5 features distinctively energized reinterpretations of eight alternative rock hits. The first half of the album features funky, bluesy, jazzy, and even classical-inspired full group instrumental and vocal arrangements of four songs, while the second half of the album features virtuoso solo piano re-imaginings of four others.
In June 2018, Joe signed on 212° Records with Carter Fox and Michael Tozzi of iJazzGlobal. In August, Joe made waves with his debut orchestral performance with the Chesco Pops, where Kenney's arrangement of his own original work "Zera" was premiered. 

Pittsburgh, PA

Tim Vitullo is a bit different.
An accomplished singer, guitarist, & songwriter, Vitullo decided to return home to both Pittsburgh & his blues influences to record Josephine & Assorted Train Songs, his debut studio LP.
This statement finds Vitullo coming into his own as both a vocalist & composer after spending several years primarily as a “guitarist-for-hire.” Songs like "Josephine" are made concise & accessible by a smooth delivery & sly sense of humor. Ballads "Letters" & "A Different Kind of Blue" are earnest experiments in confessional-style songwriting flanked by dense vocal & horn arrangements. Further, burners "Interstate Jesus," "Black & White Wonderful," & "Pretty Good" (a cover of the John Prine classic) flash the guitar prowess that has been Vitullo's calling card since his earliest musical ventures. These songs combine to create a portrait of “contemporary Americana blues” music that borrows as much from Vitullo’s jazz, jam band, & country influences as it does the American blues tradition.
Josephine & Assorted Train Songs was produced, engineered, & mixed by singer/songwriter & producer Steven Foxbury in Pittsburgh, PA. Recorded entirely at Foxbury's Yellow Couch Studio, the LP is a homegrown display of some of Pittsburgh's most promising young talents.
Prior to Josephine & Assorted Train Songs, Vitullo established himself as an exciting, young jazz composer & improviser in State College, PA with the release of This is the Thing! in 2012. That EP, comprised completely of Vitullo’s original compositions, explores the harmonic & melodic characteristics of bebop, Brazilian bossa nova, modal jazz, & fusion genres. Those recordings doubled as Vitullo's undergraduate thesis, allowing him to graduate with Honors in Music from The Pennsylvania State University that same year. Many are surprised to learn that he received a Bachelor's of Science in Civil & Environmental Engineering upon graduation too. This is the Thing! was produced by Dr. Stephen Hopkins (who is also featured on piano throughout the album) & engineered, mixed, & mastered by multi-platinum recording engineer Marc Frigo at his former State College, PA studio.
Currently, Tim is performing regularly with his group, the Tim Vitullo Band (TVB), in the Northeast, Midwest, & Atlantic Coast regions in support of Josephine & Assorted Train Songs and his latest material. Tim was also featured as a "Who's Next: Up & Coming Artist Under 40" by The Incline magazine and as an Artist-in-Residence at James Street Gastropub & Speakeasy in 2017. He is preparing material for a follow-up album to be recorded in 2019.

Philadelphia, PA

WE don't believe in rules…. Rules are limitations placed upon you by others through their own insecurities, fear, and lack of imagination. WE believe in learning the rules of your instrument so you are not bound by those rules, and you are free to create. If you were to ask the other guys in the band what this is to them, you'd probably get 5 different answers: and that's really the point. 
Music is singular to the individual: We each bring something to the table the others don't have, and together we create something that is unique. If you were to take a cross-section of who we are, and what we do, you'd find permutations of that which has already been done: At the core, we're a power trio, and an MC fronts the band. Growing up in the late 90s, early 2000's unfortunately I remember that era of bands categorized as 'rap-rock' (..and zero guitar!!); yet none of those bands were equipped with a neo-soul wizard on the keys. Conversely, there are many r&b outfits that dabble in hip hop and soul; yet, I've yet to see one with a lead guitar player blowing LA rock guitar through a Marshall stack. We deal in rock, jazz, funk, reggae, neo-soul, and we play live. We can take to any stage, in any circumstance and do what we do without the aid of a computer. It's real, and that in and of itself, I believes sets this band apart. Marv has a story to tell, we help him tell it. There are 4 different versions to this story, and what I've laid before you is simply how I see it….

Philadelphia/New Jersey

We are a funky soul band feeding the world with love thru our music and message!

Black Dirty 10:50pm
Mount Laurel, NJ

"It’s hard to pin down the sound exactly, but it sounds something like an imaginary island of alternative music located somewhere in the mid-Atlantic. It’s not quite a UK style math-sound and it’s not quite a folk-esq US sound either, but it is populated and punctuated by the same sonic measures of tapping, slides and complex syncopations that we know and love."
-Aidan McGovern, Musical Mathematics

"Beautiful guitar work, delicately crafted vocals, and cool polyrhythmic bass and drums reign supreme in this four piece’s formula; it can be easily assessed as rock solid in nearly every aspect, with no facet falling flat."

"Despite the album name, the four tracks included on the album feature some great, clean-sounding guitar work. Not to be outdone, the vocals and drums are at the same level of quality and clarity."

Outdoor Patio Stage

Main Stage

Labella & Poole - 7:00pm
Philadelphia/ Scranton, PA

They spent their first year playing in breweries and cafes in Pennsylvania and New Jersey, and tracking their debut LP, Skippack. The album, released in November 2018, follows the story of their first five years making music together, and is founded on friendship, compassion, and hope. LaBella & Poole draw inspiration from introspective and spiritual songwriters including Neil Young, The Avett Brothers, Trevor Hall, and Josh Garrels.
The duo, now based in Philadelphia, will be gigging locally and regionally in 2019 in support of their album, sharing their songs and story with all who will listen.

At Best - 7:50pm
Philadelphia, PA

At Best are a trio of metalheads gone indie. 
Formed in 2017 in South Jersey, the band features lead vocalist and guitarist Lennon Cantwell, bassist Alicia Dickerson, and drummer Steph Brettman. By combining their various musical backgrounds from past projects, At Best's sound ranges from 90's D.I.Y. nostalgia to heavy-yet-melodic shoegaze. They've been compared to the songwriting and lyrical styles of Elliott Smith, the ferociousness of The Smashing Pumpkins, and having a familiar driving force like the Foo Fighters.
Formally known as Burned Out Still Glowing, the trio have toured around the States and play frequent shows in the Philadelphia area. They have played along acts such as In The Presence of Wolves, Old City Revival, Such Gold, Pointless, and Cappadonna (yes, really!).​ Over the past two years under the new name, they've gone forth with a mission to outperform themselves with every set through their high-energy live shows. At Best have painted their sonic canvas with raw emotion over driving instrumentals, striving to put the human element back into contemporary music.
At Best released their first debut single "Words in a Web" March 2nd, 2019 and released their second single "Changing Shape" Friday, June 28th; both singles were recorded and produced by Matt Weber at The Gradwell House. Their most recent single is accompanied by a music video directed and produced by Jay Yachetta of Luxwav Films. At Best debuted Changing Shape on its release date at "Live at 5" on Philadelphia Alternative Rock Station Radio 104.5.

Max Swan - 8:50pm
Philadelphia, PA

A saxophonist, vocalist, and producer from Philadelphia by way of Perkasie, PA, Max Swan channels influence from the likes of Stevie Wonder, James Blake, Donny Hathaway, Michael Brecker, and Lenny Pickett. He's gone from nothing-but-jazz, to everything-other-than-jazz, and all stops in between. Initially being the loud alto player that showed up for the jam session every week, Max slowly took on more opportunities in hip hop production, as both a bandleader and a studio producer, playing with a number of artists and groups during their growth in the Philly music scene; notable names include LP Stiles, Kuf Knotz, Mic Stew, and most recently, Aime. Over time, the saxophone he'd lay on tracks led to supplementing keyboards, and writing string and horn section arrangements, many of which can be heard on Aime's most recent release, "The Book of David", available on iTunes, Spotify, and Pandora. The work that was done with these artists led Max to start laying vocals on his newer music, starting with "So Much Chime" (also available on iTunes, Spotify, etc.). Swan received accolades during his new process with Councilman David Oh's PHLlive Center Stage Music Conference, Ernest Stuart's Center City Jazz Festival, all while continuing his rigorous study of saxophone, mainly by way of Lenny Pickett (SNL), in order to truly reach proficiency in the altissimo (higher) registers of the instrument. Swan's music combines his passions for jazz fusion, 21st century soul, and contemporary hip hop, featuring his vocals, saxophone, and EWI (Electronic Wind Instrument). "The Fisherman", his debut, was made possible via The Kimmel Center, and will be available soon.

Another Day Dawn9:50pm
Lehighton, PA

Another Day Dawns is a high-energy hard rock band from Lehighton, Pennsylvania. The band started out in 2010, with drummer Nick McGeehan and guitarist Tyler Ritter learning classic rock covers. The addition of frontman Dakota McGeehan would mark their evolution into a full-on original act, writing music at a breakneck pace. The trio quickly generated buzz across the northeast Pennsylvania scene, earning opening slots for Fuel, Sammy Hagar, Godsmack, Puddle of Mudd, Trapt, and many more, as well as touring with Austin John Winkler, formerly of Hinder. Through years of non-stop show booking, the band cultivated a strong, loyal fan base.
Fresh off these shows, a chance encounter in 2016 at a local music conference introduced the band to Grammy-nominated and multi-platinum engineer/producer David Ivory (Halestorm, Silvertide, The Roots). Quickly they began work on new material, one of which would become the band's debut single "Love She's After", mastered by Ted Jensen at Sterling Sound and released on Ivory's label Flexitone Records in early January 2017.

Jesse Gimbal - 10:50pm
Philadelphia, PA

Jesse Gimbel is a multi-instrumentalist and the owner of Jesse Gimbel’s Basement recording studio located in the Philadelphia area. From the performance of guitar, bass, drums, and piano to expertise in each step of the recording process, Jesse is self-taught and knows all aspects of what it takes to make a great record. 
Gaining comparisons to Death Cab For Cutie, Conor Oberst, and Elliott Smith, Jesse has now recruited members from September Call-Up (Christian Bitto) and Night Windows (Ben Hughes, Ryan Buzby) and James Suit to lend a skilled hand in recreating the album in an energetic, explosive, cinematic live setting.
